Fully ISV (Independent Software Vendor) certified, the P9D WS has been designed for workstation and high-end desktop usage, with wider memory compatibility. It features the ASUS Dr. Power utility, which monitors power supply health to prevent sudden shutdowns, and extensive I/O including diverse display ports. The P9D WS works with standard DDR3 non-error correcting (non-ECC) unbuffered memory, and server-grade error-correcting (ECC) unbuffered memory, which is more stable and reliable.
