ASRock X399 Taichi is ready for Threadripper

Up for pre-order

ASRock has revealed the full specifications of its X399 Taichi motherboard. A few months ago during Computex 2017, ASRock has unveiled their first two AMD X399 motherboards which are compatible with the upcoming AMD Threadripper processors. Meanwhile it looks like the company is ready to introduce this new platform.

Today we’re having a look at the ASRock X399 Taichi motherboard, which packs the new socket TR4, eight DDR4 DIMM slots and several new features. The motherboard is based on an ATX form factor featuring RGB backlight underneath each heat sink and there are steel reinforcements on the PCIe slots. In general the layout is similar to the other high-end motherboards and therefore there are four full-sized PCIe 3.0 x16 slots and one PCIe x1 slot.

On the storage side, the X399 Taichi features a single U.2 port, three M.2 slots and eight angled SATA ports. The first M.2 slot is placed in the middle of the motherboard, the second one is in the bottom area and the third is placed in the bottom right corner of the motherboard. According to the image, all the slots are compatible with 22110 units (110mm). Unlike many other manufacturers, ASRock isn't offering any M.2 heat sink/s.

Looking at the external connectors placed directly at the I/O-panel, ASRock equipped the X399 Taichi motherboard with one PS/2 port, six USB 3.0 ports and two USB 3.1 Gen2 ports. Furthermore there are two Intel GbE LAN ports and the analogue audio panel with optical out as well as a WiFi module with two connectors for antennas.
