A picture of the upcoming ASrock X79 board has made appearance on the internet, via various Far East websites. We snagged the picture for our readers today.
We have reviewed many ASRock boards this year, and many of them have won our highest accolades. They are certainly a force to be reckoned with and have been working with legendary gamer Fatal1ty to create a small range of high end enthusiast motherboards. The ASRock Fatal1ty Z68 Professional Series Gen 3 Review and ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Professional Motherboard Review are two shining examples of how they can get it right.
The X79 board from ASRock features active cooling and a plethora of SATA ports. We can also see they are using high quality capacitors across the design ensuring stability when overclocking. With a promise of quad channel memory and some serious horsepower for rendering and encoding duties, this will replace the dated (but still capable) X58 platform. Both SLI and Crossfire will be supported.
We hope to have a review of this board when the new platform launches, sooner rather than later.
