Review: Asus Pro WS W790E-SAGE SE and Intel W9-3495X


Thanks to Intel and Asus, we were able to test an ultra-high-end configuration featuring an Intel Xeon W9-3495X processor with 56 cores, combined with an Asus Pro WS W790E-SAGE SE motherboard. For this test, we also received a Noctua NH-U14S DX-4677 cooling unit and an EK-Pro CPU WB 4677 Ni Acetal waterblock. To accompany this configuration and to make sure we had enough memory, a 128 GB Zeta R5 DDR5-6400 CL32 kit. As you can imagine, to run and overclock this configuration we needed a powerful power supply, so we opted for the 1500-watt be quiet! Dark Power PRO 12!

In this article, we’ll show you the different components we used, as well as our impressions and the results obtained in various benchmarks.

Many thanks to our partners who helped us gather the necessary hardware for this test: Asus, Intel, GSKill, Noctua and EK waterblock.
