ASRock X99 WS LGA2011 Motherboard Revealed
Peter Donnell / 2 years ago
There are just two weeks left until Haswell-E and the Intel X99 chipset becomes available and already there is a nice selection of motherboard products creeping up ready for launch day. One of the latest is this new ASRock board, which is obviously built around the upcoming X99 chipset and designed for workstation level X99 systems.
The board features the LGA2011 socket, Super Alloy technology for massive aluminium alloy heatsinks, premium alloy chokes, dual-stack MOSFET and 12k platinum capacitors. There are eight DDR4 slots to allow up to 128GB of RAM, ten SATA 6.0 Gbps ports, an Ultra M.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 connector and six PCIe x16 slots with SLI and CrossFire support.
Not content with all that, the board also features dual Intel Gigabit Ethernet, Purity Sound 2 7.1 channel audio, one eSATA port, four USB 3.0 connectors and a debut LED.
Unfortunately there are no details on price just yet, but you can bet that with flagship levels of specifications like this, it isn’t going to be cheap.
