ASUS ROG X399 Zenith Extreme Threadripper motherboard has revealed, featuring a large CPU socket and a large number of unique features.
The Threadripper platform offers greater CPU performance, with quad channel memory support, 64 PCIe 3.0 lanes and CPUs with up to 16/32 CPU cores/threads. This motherboard uses AMD’s X399 chipset and supports up to three M.2 SSDs with this motherboard allowing users to utilize two of these new SSD’s using ASUS’ low latency DIMM.2 system and one using a traditional onboard slot that is under this motherboard’s chipset heatsink.
With the Zenith Extreme, ASUS will intergrade the same power solution as their X299 Rampage VI Extreme motherboard, also similar finned heatsink design. This motherboard also features a 10GB Ethernet card to provide premium networking experience.
The Zenith will also come with a small OLED display on the board’s IO cover, which can be used to play little-animated gifs, display static images or text and even report CPU temperatures and clock speeds.
AMD is expected to reveal more information on Threadripper tonight at their Computex Press Conference live event, where we learn more about the AMD’s new X399 platform and CPUs.
