20131212-1

ASRock just unveiled the mew Killer Series motherboards, having exactly as the name states, killer design and performance. The series is made up of the Z87, B85, 990FX and FM2A88X+, all Killer!

Apart from the ludicrously fast Killer LAN that speeds up networking performances up to 5 times faster, this time ASRock has also added more surprising elements into the game, 990FX Killer is the world’s first motherboard to have a PCIe Gen2 x2/SATA M.2 socket.

The onboard M.2 socket is a new interface for connecting Next Generation Form Factor (NGFF) solid state drives or other devices. ASRock’s 990FX Killer supports M.2 SATA3 6.0Gb/s modules and M.2 PCI Express modules up to Gen2 x2 10Gb/s , which is 2X faster compared to other M.2 Gen2 x1 solutions that are limited to 5 Gb/s. It increases the NGFF SSDs performance while reducing the load time and boosting overall performance.
