ASRock X99 Haswell-E Mini-ITX Motherboard at CeBIT 2015
Peter Donnell / 2 years ago
This is easily one of the greatest bits of technology we’ve seen this year, Haswell-E support on a Mini-ITX motherboard! That means all the ultra high-end performance you would associate with the new processors, suitable for everything from gaming to rendering workstations. What’s also exciting is that DDR4 is supported on this board, giving you even greater performance that makes this a very impressive solution for a compact workstation, with only one draw back, you’re limited to two memory slots.
Having two memory slots shouldn’t be an issue for many users, but given that one of the main benefits of Haswell-E systems is their impressive DDR4 capabilities, this cut-down design feels a little bit of a cut-back in comparison, which leaves us wondering if anything else has been cut back from the design; are you still going to get the full-fat experience and capabilities of the new Haswell-E hardware? We look forward to putting this board through its paces in a featured review in the very near future.
