ASUS M5A99X AM3+ 990X Board Snapped



/ 7 years ago

One of the first 990X/SB950 boards is going to be an ASUS judging by these pictures:

The M5A99X EVO is designed to support the upcoming FX-series ‘Zambezi’ CPU’s. There are 3 PCIe X16 slots for some serious Crossfire action (we’re still unsure on SLI support for this board, but apparantly so?). The whole board is passively cooled along with a more reliable 8-Phase Digi+ VRM for Power delivery.

The board is unmistakeably ASUS, with its striking blue and black colour scheme. The board therefore should come complete with USB 3.0 connectivity and some SATA 6Gbps ports together with some of ASUS’s own in house innovations such as the Energy processing unit and TurboV processing Unit.

The board appears to be a Mid-Range part with a UEFI BIOS and is expected to launch this June.

    Yes its been announced that these new 900 series chipset motherboards will support SLI as this uses the 990X chipset it will only support two-way SLI and each of the cards uses only eight PCI Express lanes. The 990FX support two-way SLI with sixteen PCI Express lanes each or three cards using eight lanes each.
