    Re: ASRock launches sextet of AMD Ryzen AM4 motherboards

    For all-round performance ASRock recommends its X370 Taichi. Said to be attractively priced this board again eschews APU support but you can fit quad-CPUs to cure that ailment.
    Quad-CPUs? Wow, 32 core support... (Sadly assume that was supposed to be 'GPUs')

    Support for Nvidia Quad SLI, AMD Quad CrossFireX
    2 PCIe 3.0 x16, 1 PCIe 2.0 x16, 2 PCIe 2.0 x1, 1 M.2 (Key E)
    And how exactly are they supporting Quad SLI or Quad CrossFireX from those PCIe slots?!

    I think those "Support Spec" are a default thing because of the Chipset (the chipset supports quadsli) question is, do u have quad pci-e ports xD

    Dual GPU cards, perhaps?

    Re: ASRock launches sextet of AMD Ryzen AM4 motherboards

    Why don't the top motherboards have APU support? Surely its a clear upgrade path from an APU, to an APU with dedicated/dual graphics and then to a CPU with dedicated graphics.
    This way someone could buy a top end board and upgrade over time, instead of being forced into keeping a lower range spec.

    Re: ASRock launches sextet of AMD Ryzen AM4 motherboards

    Taichi looks great, and has excellent state-side pricing ($190). Looks like some UK retailers are upping the margin on it a little at the moment so not such good value, but I'll be watching it for the future.

    Most people don't tend to replace just the CPU these days.

    True. My next upgrade will be to change CPU, mobo & RAM at the same time, because RAM has changed (DDR3 -> DDR4).

    Still undecided between Kaby/Cannon Lake & Ryzen, though...

    Anyone got any Mini-ITX news? When they start shipping AMD might finally wrench me away from my beloved 3770k

    Some of them do. Gigabyte's Gaming K7 has on-board HDMI output - there's absolutely no use for that *except* with an APU. MSI's £300 XPower Gaming Titanium supports both HDMI and DP outputs. Although who in their right mind would spend £300 on a motherboard for a < £100 APU I have no idea...

    Mini-ITX is waiting for the X300 chipset to be released which is I think is due ~may/june time?

    For intel they don't, but intel make a new socket every time the wind changes. AMD buyers may differ, although we'll need APU's announced for non-oem retail before that use case is possible
