Ryan Martin / 2 years ago
An image of an upcoming ASUS X99 motherboard has been leaked into the public domain just ahead of the X99 platform launch that is speculated to be on August 29th. The image is of the ASUS X99 DELUXE which is the first time ASUS have released a white and black motherboard as a consumer product. For those who can remember back to Computex in June we did actually see the ASUS TUF Sabranco Z97 white and black motherboard but ASUS have still yet to release that particular board.
The ASUS X9 DELUXE is rumoured to have an 8 phase DIGI+ VRM design which powers the Haswell-E compatible LGA 2011-3 socket. Ten SATA III and two SATA Express make up the storage options for users. The ASUS X99 DELUXE includes a staggering five PCIe 3.0 X16 lanes and a single X4 lane meaning there’s bucket loads of multi expansion card options for users. Other nifty features include dual gigabit LAN, 7.1 channel HD audio, AC WiFi and the ASUS Crystal Sound 2 audio implementation.
Expect more details to be revealed at launch. The source is reporting that retail pricing will be around $350 USD.
