Powerful performance with Intel® Xeon® W processor and ECC memory
WS C422 Sage/10G supports server-grade Intel® Xeon® W series processors to deliver powerful, optimized performance in always-on usage scenarios. Support for Error-Correcting Code (ECC) memory enables automatic detection and repair of single-bit memory errors, reducing the chance of system crashes and data corruption to ensure reliable and responsive workstation performance.
High Speed networking with dual Intel® 10G LAN
With built in dual Intel® 10GBASE-T networking, WS C422 Sage/10G increases data throughput and improves efficiency. This supports high-density, high-bandwidth and low-latency access-layer networks needed for extremely demanding applications, such as graphics or video production.
Ultimate graphics power with up to 4-way NVIDIA® SLI™ and AMD® CrossFireX™
WS C422 Sage/10G fits up to four dual-slot graphics cards and supports both NVIDIA® SLI™ and AMD CrossFireX™ 4-way configurations to enable multi-GPU setups that harness the full power of the latest graphics technologies, including NVIDIA® Quadro®. NVIDIA® Quadro® is the perfect complement to WS C422 Sage/10G, delivering the best performance for design, modeling, medical research, and processing-intensive simulation and rendering applications.
Multiple Ultra-efficient heatsinks
Designed for the powerful Intel® Xeon® scalable processor with up to 28 cores, WS C422 Sage/10G features a capable thermal design to ensure maximum performance with no CPU throttling.
Consisting of an ultra-efficient VRM heatsink with a metal fin array design that maximizes surface area for heat dissipation, plus two additional heatsinks and a connecting heatpipe to further increase cooling performance, this innovative thermal design ensures WS C422 Sage/10G is always ready to handle any task, no matter how demanding.
With its dual PLX chips that increase the number of available PCIe lanes to enable 4-way GPU configurations, WS C422 Sage/10G features a robust thermal solution to dissipate the heat that comes with routing so much high-speed traffic. An additional heatsink array and heatpipe cover the PLX chips and are positioned in the path of maximum airflow within the chassis, reducing PLX temperatures by up to 20° C to ensure optimal cooling and system stability.
SafeSlot is the PCIe slot reinvented by ASUS and engineered to provide superior retention and shearing resistance. Manufactured in a single step using a new insert-molding process, SafeSlot integrates the slot with fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.
Upgrade your RAID
Intel® Virtual RAID on CPU (VROC) obliterates PCH-based RAID arrays that are bottlenecked by the 32Gbps limit of the DMI bus, allowing you to utilize CPU PCIe lanes to configure a bootable RAID array that can transfer data at insane speeds.
Supporting Thunderbolt EX3 card
WS C422 Sage/10G provides full support for a ThunderboltEX 3 card. An Intel®-certified Thunderbolt™ 3 add-on card enables breathtaking bi-directional speeds of up to 40Gbps through a single cable — up to 4X faster than other PC data-transfer protocols. Beyond sheer bandwidth, Thunderbolt™ 3 supports daisy-chaining up to six devices, utilizes a Type-C reversible connector for compatibility with the latest USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C devices, and meets USB power delivery specifications for fast, high-power charging of up to 36W.
