Engineered For Your Enterprise
GIGABYTE brings Intel’s Skylake architecture to the SOHO segment with a new offering: the ‘Basin Falls’ single-socket platform for workstations. This new build offers a wealth of I/O options, including multiple PCIe lanes to support graphics, and other add-on card options, as well as direct SATA and USB ports.
GIGABYTE’s precision engineering enables you to fulfil your workstation workload needs with ease.
CPU Key Features
Intel’s Skylake-W (Basin Falls) platform brings increases in compute, I/O and memory compared to the previous generation. This functionality, with multiple USB and SATA connections from the chipset, allows for:
- I/O Options
20% more PCIe lanes gen-on-gen
Extra 16 PCIe lanes from the PCH
Supports USB and SATA connectors
11% more bandwidth vs. previous generation
4 channels – maximum 2666MT/s at 1DPC or 2DPC
1S: up to 18 cores; Intel HS Hyper-threading; per core power management

W281-G40 Product Overview
Dense Storage/USB Design
GIGABYTE’s engineers have maximized the storage and external connection scope of this board with 10 SATA ports and 8 USB ports.
- 8x SATA from the chipset
- 2x ‘GSATA’ via the onboard Marvell 9172 SATA controller (from PCIe)
- 8x USB 3.0
- 2x USB 3.1 – one Type ‘A’ and one Type ‘C’
- Mini-SAS HD type
- PCIe Gen3 x4 (NVMe) connection offering 32Gb/s for high-speed boot
GIGABYTE’s MW51-HP0 platforms are designed to support on-board ‘M.2’ storage devices for time-sensitive operations and leaves room on the standard storage for compute tasks.
Delivering up to 32 Gb/s data transfer speeds through a PCIe connection, M.2 offers users considerably faster storage performance than current mSATA devices.
Compliant with four different M.2 form factors.
TPM 2.0 Header
GIGABYTE’s MW51-HP0 platform is designed to support Trusted Platform Modules (TPM – discrete cryptographic on-board processors).
