ASRock to Launch mini-ITX Haswell-E X99E-ITX/ac at CeBIT

/ 5 years ago


ASRock is launching its first X99 plus mini-ITX motherboard, the X99E-ITX/ac, at computer expo CeBIT later this month.

The Haswell-E-based board is small yet powerful, but sacrifices have been made in the name of size: it only supports dual-channel memory – a compromise to accommodate SATA ports and 40 PCIe lanes – and features only one PCIe 3.0 x16 slot.

Another space-saver is the use of the narrower LGA2011-3 socket, which is incompatible with most regular LGA2011-3 coolers, though ASRock is bundling a CPU cooler – a 2U server cooler – with the board for anyone struggling to find an appropriate fan to cool the 140w CPU. Fan controller tools are also bundled.

The X99E-ITX/ac boasts dual-stream 802.11ac WiFi, dual Intel network controllers, SATA express, and two type-A USB 3.1 ports, plus Ultra M.2, offering PCIe 3.0 x4 lanes for an M.2 slot.
