ASUS unveils ROG Dominus Extreme motherboard

Redefines extreme desktop motherboards

A few weeks ago, Intel has officially announced its new 28 core processor designed for extremely powerful workstations, the Xeon W-3175X. Since this chip requires the LGA3647 socket, you might need a new motherboard as well. ASUS has officially announced the ROG Dominus Extreme, which is massive new motherboard based on this particular socket.

This board features the massive EEB form factor measuring 305 × 330 mm. The socket is surrounded by a dozen of DDR4 DIMM slots with support for up to 192GB of RAM. Furthermore there are two DIMM.2 modules with room for four NVMe SSDs. Storage wise there are also U.2 ports providing connectivity for additional NVMe drives, and eight SATA ports.

The motherboard comes with several tiny fans placed on the VRM. Due to the layout of this board a second socket could be installed. Although this board is huge, there are "only" four PCIe 3.0 x16 slots. In the case of power connectors there are two 24-pin ATX, four 8-pin EPS and two 6-pin PCIe power connectors.

Furthermore we also see all the bells and whistles you'd ask for in the event of overclocking, like PCIe lane switches, power and reset buttons, as well as a debug LED for diagnostic purposes. Since this is a workstation motherboard, there is a total of twelve 4-pin PWM headers on the PCB, with six of them located in the top right corner of the board.

The pricing and availability of the ASUS ROG Dominus Extreme is currently unknown. We expect to see this motherboard listed quite soon on Geizhals. Due to the number of features, we’d expect the price to be around $1'000 US.
