    Asus updates the ROG Strix TRX40-XE Gaming motherboard

    The only visible change appears to be a beefed up CPU VRM section using 70A capacitors.

    Other than for bragging rights, why would you go with Threadripper for gaming?

    Might be different when the XT versions come out!

    If all they've done is bump the VRM's its just a revision of the original board surely, no point in harping on about it and needing more marketing etc?
    Just change a single digit on the motherboard where the rev. bit is, simples, think of all the money saved

    Yeah for gaming alone it might not be the wisest move to jump the threadripper bandwagon.
    But if you do other intense things on the side it might be nice to have a little extra.
    But of course regular ryzen ships now have the same 12/24 core count as my threadripper have, so now its just the 8 populated RAM slots i got going for me. ( 64GB )
    Of course you can do that too on a AM4 board with 4 X 16GB.
