Asus WS C246M PRO LGA1151 ATX Workstation Motherboard
WS C246M PRO
Compact, rack-optimized Intel LGA1151 micro-ATX motherboard with M.2, USB 3.1 Gen2 connectors and dual Gigabit LAN
Processor socket Mechanical component(s) that provides mechanical and electrical connections between a microprocessor and a printed circuit board (PCB). This allows the processor to be replaced without soldering.
LGA 1151 (Socket H4)
Compatible processor series A processor which is compatible with this device, belongs to a 'series' which is part of 'family' e.g Celeron D, Celeron G, Celeron M, or, in some cases, is the same as 'family'.

Number of memory slots
Memory slots type A memory slot, also known as a memory socket or RAM slot, is what allows computer memory (RAM) to be inserted into the computer. Depending on the motherboard, there will usually be 2 to 4 memory slots (sometimes more on high-end motherboards). The most common types of RAM are SDRAM and DDR for desktop computers and SODIMM for laptop computers, each having various types and speeds.
Supported memory clock speeds Memory clock speed is the time it takes for a computer to complete basic operations. It refers to the computer's processing speed and is measured in hertz. It is however not such a reliable measure of a computer's speed as it doesn't take into account other factors like RAM and cache size.
USB 2.0 connectors The end of a cable with a USB 2.0 connector. USB 2.0 was released in April 2000 (now called "Hi-Speed"), adding higher maximum signaling rate of 480 Mbit/s (effective throughput up to 35 MB/s or 280 Mbit/s), in addition to the "USB 1.x Full Speed" signaling rate of 12 Mbit/s. USB 2.0 connectors are usually colored black.
USB 3.2 Gen 1 (3.1 Gen 1) connectors This is a connector (normally attached to a cable) for USB 3.0. USB 3.0 is the second major revision of the Universal Serial Bus (USB) standard for computer connectivity. First introduced in 2008, USB 3.0 adds a new transfer mode called "SuperSpeed," (distinguishable from USB 2.0 by either the blue colour of the port or the initials SS) capable of transferring data at up to 5Gbit/s—more than ten times as fast as the 480 Mbit/s top speed of USB 2.0.

USB 3.2 Gen 2 (3.1 Gen 2) Type-A ports quantity
Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports Number of Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports (connecting interfaces) in the device. Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports allow a computer to connect to the ethernet.
VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity Number of VGA (D-Sub) ports (connecting interfaces) in the device. The VGA (D-Sub) connector is a 15 pin connector between a computer and a monitor. It was first introduced in 1987 by IBM.
HDMI ports quantity The number of sockets (ports) for HDMI connections. HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a compact audio/video interface for transferring uncompressed video data and compressed/uncompressed digital audio data from a HDMI-compliant device ("the source device") to a compatible computer monitor, video projector, digital television, or digital audio device. HDMI is a digital replacement for existing analog video standards.
DVI-D ports quantity This is the amount of DVI-I interfaces. Digital Visual Interface (DVI) is a video display interface developed by the Digital Display Working Group (DDWG). The digital interface is used to connect a video source to a display device, such as a computer monitor. DVI-D means DVI digital, which means it can only support digital, but not analog.
Ethernet LAN An Ethernet LAN (Local Area Network) interface is present, for a wired conection via a cable.
