MSI announces MEG X399 Creation motherboard

First motherboard for Threadripper 2000 CPUs

MSI has released the MEG X399 Creation, this motherboard should be the flagship model for the AMD TR4 socket. The company showed off this board during the last Computex held this June.

The layout of the MEG X399 Creation concurs with today's de facto standards for high-end motherboards and therefore there are four full-sized PCIe 3.0 x16 slots and one PCIe x1 slot for instance.

Furthermore we find eight angled SATA ports and two M.2 slots allowing the installation of differently sized SSDs. While the first M.2 slot is placed between the PCIe slots, the second one is close on the 24-pin power connector. Both M.2 slots are covered with MSI Xpander Aero heatsink.

MSI equipped the MEG X399 Creation motherboard with six USB 3.0 ports, two USB 3.1 Gen1 ports and two USB 3.1 Gen2 headers. Furthermore we can see ten 4-pin PWM headers. This model should be perfect for high-end gaming PCs and workstations.

Furthermore there are two Gigabit Ethernet ports and the analogue audio panel with optical out as well as a WiFi module with two connectors for antennas.

At the moment there isn't any information about the price but we believe that will be pretty high and around $500 USD.
