Well it's has been it awhile folks since I wrote on this motherboard post. Here lately I've I have notice a new BIOS update 3601 just came out and it little bit better BIOS from the last 3 previous BIOS update. I had nothing but random hardware boot up issue and random BIOS boot error. Sometime RAID 0 will work fine and other days a random overclock failed Push F1 sometime it will try to boot from my flash drive and other hard drive or other BOOT directory. Some other days it Boot fine just haves to turn it off and start it back on several times and it will Boot up normal. Some other days my sound card won't work from PCIe slot 3 and sometime it runs smooth and other days it doesn't kind of disappointed in BIOS from ASUS to buggy.




Does anyone know a good workstation motherboard BIOS for the ASUS-E-WS? Or know a better motherboard than this.
Really sick of this random BS boot errors

So has Asus decided not to make any new X299 workstation boards which would support dual PLX quad X16 PCIe? Not hapy about this.
https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/WS-X299-PRO-SE/

This is BS since Gigabyte has something comparable to the X99-WS. That is if Gigabyte ever decides to follow through and release it.

So the ability of being able to operate dual GPU's in SLI @ X16 with an added X16 RAID card for M.2 is not important to Asus.

I agree,thats a really bad x299 WS board, I have also wondered where the gigabyte WS board was,I remember seeing it on Computex17 and I thought that looks interesting and I wondered what new features it had.

It doesnt really matter, as far as I see it our mobo is just way feature rich than x299 equivalent.

I couldn't agree more. I'm not sure what the issue is with Asus but until they are able to provide a convincing reason for upgrade then I won't consider it as a reasonable option. My system with an overclocked 6950x and dual TXP's is plenty enough power for my needs. Unless I am able to obtain noticeable performance increases then I don't see the point. Case in point. My family of 4 all have iPhone 6's and I preordered 4 iPhone X's which our carrier, AT&T is giving us a November 17th shipping date. Going from an iPhone 6 to a X is a noticeable upgrade. I would like to see that type of performance upgrade with my PC's before I consider any hardware changes.

Ditto. I have X99WS and X299R6E. The WS runs as cool as a cucumber on air and the X299 needs to be totally under water to perform. I was really looking forward to an X299WS if it was built to the same standard as the X99WS. X299R6E was rushed because intel rushed out their high end chips when they were caught off guard by AMD TR.

I expected more since its x299. I mean only 8sata ports,not 12 as our board has.Id thought they would add an onboard 10G NIC do triple NIC's,that would be awesome. The amount of fans would be interesting. It seems they reused alot of the layout from our board which is awesome. It doesnt look like its any RGB on there,thank god. An thankfully they didnt leave out PLX chip's.

It looks like it addresses the power needed to overclock and as long as it doesn't lose features I can live with it. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the details. I only spot 1 M.2 slot but the description says 2. Doesn't really matter since the addon card supports 4 more. The power connections look identical and I see the slot for front panel USB 3.1. At least it supports thunderbolt again. Hopefully it's integrated in the USB C ports this time.

I understand that some want to OC,but I rather have a stable Workstation board so I dont care much for overclocking. But for me the lack of sata ports and it seems its less 3.1 USB aswell is a big nono for me.
Or do I see 3 vertical sata ports near the other 8?
