Last week MSI introduced its new X99A Workstation motherboard, part of the X99 refresh we've seen over the past couple of months following the launch of the Broadwell-E processor line.

Part of the 'Workstation' feature set means that it has qualified support for NVIDIA Quadro PCIe cards, compatibility with ECC memory, and a U.2 connector for storage. The manufacturer claims that the mainboard uses special components that can improve the endurance of the board, although the warranty is still listed as three years.
