ASRock X370 Taichi Motherboard Review

Rating: 8.5.

Continuing our examination of high-end X370 motherboards for AMD’s new AM4 platform, ASRock’s £230 X370 Taichi is put under the microscope. Acting as the second-rung product in ASRock’s current X370 line-up, the Taichi uses a slightly different approach to supplied features in comparison to competing board vendors.

Key features for the ASRock X370 Taichi include a robust 16-phase power delivery system with high-quality electronic components, dual PCIe-capable M.2 ports, and onboard 802.11ac WiFi. ASRock adds further SATA 6Gbps ports on top of the eight from AMD’s X370 chipset, while onboard audio is built around the vendor’s Purity Sound 4 system.

Featuring a unique black and white design and promising strong overclocking capacity thanks to a power delivery solution stronger than anything from competing vendors’ AM4 products, is the X370 Taichi a winner?

    The problem with ASRock and Ryzen is that there are none available. Unless you want to wait until Zen+ MBs, i guess you have to go to another brand.

    Well, there’s plenty available now.. this one looks one of the must have for Ryzen high end CPUs.

    I’m considering this one or the Fatal1ty, apparently they are the same minos the 5Gbp port right?

  • I’m really considering this board (or the Asus Strix X370-F). Can I clarify if the ASM1184e controls 4x PCIe 2.0 x1 lanes? (2 to the slots, 1 to the WiFi, 1 to the LAN)?
