The Gigabyte MW51-HP0 is a workstation and server oriented motherboard, built for Intel's Xeon W line of processors. It pairs a lot of PCI-Express slots and high RAM capacity (up to 512GB!) with a nice set of rear panel I/O ports, more commonly found on consumer motherboards than those for processors in the Xeon family.

Speaking of connectivity, the MW51-HP0 has seven PCI-E 3.0 slots, which can either be set up as four x16 or one x16 and six x8 slots. It also has one M.2 connector, one U.2, and ten SATA ports for internal drives. Externally, it has eight USB 3.0, two USB 3.1 (including one Type C port), two Gb Ethernet ports, PS/2 ports for legacy mice and keyboards, and both analog and digital audio jacks.
