ASRock launches WS series TRX50 and WRX90 motherboards

Within the TRX40 motherboard lineup, ASRock unveiled a mere two models: the Creator and the Taichi, tailored respectively for creative professionals and tech enthusiasts. Surprisingly, on the more expandable WRX80 motherboard, the brand had yet to release a model specifically designed for high-speed computing workstations — the acclaimed WS series known for its potent performance, manageability, and reliability. However, in September, documents exposed by the Eurasian Economic Commission (ECC) suggested a resurgence of the ASRock WS series, now supporting the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series and Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7000 WX series processors.

Recently, two additions to the WS series for ASRock’s AMD TRX50 and WRX90 motherboards have been introduced: the TRX50 WS and the WRX90 WS EVO. Not only are these boards equipped with robust power delivery, but they also boast multiple fans on the power delivery heatsinks, ensuring impeccable stability in line with the WS series’ ethos.

Both the ASRock TRX50 WS and WRX90 WS EVO motherboards employ server-grade ultra-low-loss 12-layer 2OZ PCBs, complemented by an 18+3+3-phase 110A SPS Dr.MOS power design. Apart from expansive aluminum heat sinks and heat pipes to manage thermals, they’re outfitted with 4/5 auxiliary cooling fans, poised to handle prolonged high-load applications. Additionally, these motherboards support a maximum memory capacity of 1TB/2TB DDR5 ECC RDIMM, reaching frequencies up to 7600MHz+. They’re also adorned with multiple PCIe 5.0 and 4.0 x16 slots, M.2 slots, and server-grade storage expansion interfaces, including Slim-SAS and MCIO. Given their impressive storage capabilities, it’s imperative to have exemplary data transfer performance. To that end, the TRX50 WS motherboard is equipped with a Marvell 10 Gbps LAN, Realtek 2.5 Gbps LAN, Wi-Fi 6E wireless card, and 2×2 antennas. Conversely, the WRX90 WS EVO motherboard is upgraded with dual Intel X710 10Gbps LANs and incorporates the AST2600 BMC for remote server management.
