1.ASRock Socket TR4

Features



OUR TAKE

Despite its surprising combination of a compact Micro-ATX form factor and well-established powerhouse X399 chipset, the ASRock X399M (currently  on Newegg, with an extra  rebate to sweeten the deal) delivers spot-on performance in line with larger boards.

And there’s plenty of potential for overclocking if that’s your thing. However, those looking for the monster Threadripper build experience with loads of graphics cards and high-speed storage should look elsewhere.\

On paper, X399 screams for extra memory modules, lots of PCIe cards, and loads of storage connectors to make a monster of a workstation or pro-sumer production rig.

2.ASRock X399

Features



OUR TAKE

It has been over a year after the introduction of the Ryzen Threadripper processor and still the available compatible motherboards number around a dozen. ASRock is the company that offers the largest number of AMD X399 motherboards and they are merely three.

It is the ASRock X399 Taichi that we will be having a look at today. The ATX version of the Taichi is the most affordable AMD X399 motherboard available at the time of this review, retailing for .

Although the retail price of the ASRock X399 Taichi is nearly  lower than the second least expensive X399 motherboard we reviewed to this date, the specifications of the motherboard remain impressive. We are having a closer look at the motherboard and identify how ASRock managed to achieve this low price and what the X399 Taichi is missing compared to the competition.

3.ASRock B450M PRO4

Features



OUR TAKE

Back at the end of July, following on from the X470 chipset, AMD launched their B450 motherboard lineup, offering a more budget-friendly entry point to the AMD Ryzen processors. ASRock were quick off the mark, releasing several new motherboards to cater for different criteria; today we look at the AS Rock B450M Pro4 motherboard.

The B450 chipset is designed to offer a better bang-for-your-buck ratio than the X470 by cutting some non-essential features while still providing a solid base for your Ryzen 2nd Gen CPU.

ASRock have retained a pair of M.2 ports, a pair of PCI-E x16 slots, as well as a x1 slot. We also see four SATA 6Gbps and four DDR4 DIMM slots, ensuring the essentials are catered for. All of that is crammed into a smaller mATX form factor, but considering the low pricepoint, things look incredibly promising.

4.ASRock X570

Features



OUR TAKE

This ATX-form-factor AM4 motherboard follows in the tradition of Asrock’s prior Extreme4 products for gamers and overclockers. It targets the space between high-end and midrange X570 motherboards, with a feature set that veers toward the former while costing much less than an elite tweaker board.

Will it seduce you away from a flagship motherboard? Most shoppers will find the X570 Extreme4 a healthy balance, and the savings might let you buy that extra 16GB RAM kit, or step up your graphics card or Ryzen CPU, versus investing in a much pricier “overclocker special.”

In addition to the usual black PCB, this motherboard features blue and grey highlights on the board that distinguish it from the swarm of black motherboards on the market nowadays.

WRAP UP

With the initial release of AMD Ryzen’s three processor family, a.k.a the 1800x, 1700x and 1700, AMD was able to get everyone excited. Now with the latest Threadripper CPU’s based on 2 Zen CPU modules, AMD can push the boundary even further. AMD and Intel started the battle of the highest CPU clock frequency in the early 2000’s. Now, undoubtedly, we are in the era where AMD and Intel are once again battling it out with CPU core counts.
