At least then we’ll have richer SATA 3 / USB 3 support on Intel’s highest-end platform. It still burns me that Intel didn’t update X79 for IV-E to at least match what Z87 offers.

Cheers. and thanks again.

The E board has 7 PCIe x16 slots whereas the non-E has 6, and unlike the non-E, the E board does not degrade the final two slots to x4 (regardless of how the other PCIe slots are utilized). The E board also includes 2 extra SATA 6 ports, 2 eSATA ports, and 2 additional USB ports at the back.

Neither board will be better than the other for those workloads you mention, so you’d want to choose whichever fits the budget or your other needs better.

How does the P9X79 -E WS differ from the P9X79 WS? Wich MOBO is the best for Workstation use – like Premiere Pro/Photoshop/Lightroom etc.?
