Product information - X399 Taichi, AMD X399 Mainboard - Sockel TR4

AMD Logo For the enthusiast processors of the Ryzen Threadripper series, AMD has created a new platform using the X399 chipset and Socket TR4. Equipped with up to 64 PCIe-lanes, as are available on the Ryzen Threadripper CPUs, X399 motherboards offer an appropriately extensive range of connectivity options, allowing up to three PCIe NVMe SSDs and up to four graphics cards for example, each using 16 and 8 lanes respectively.

PCIe NVMe SSDs on AMD's X399 motherboards are connected directly to the GPU and Threadripper reserves a whole 12 PCIe lanes for this purpose. This enables the extreme read- and write speeds of NVME M.2 and U.2 SSDs to be used as efficiently as possible, without having to delay data by diverting it through the chipset. U.2- or M.2 SSDs can be installed, with each PCIe NVMe slot coming with four PCI-Express 3.0 lanes to allow for exceptionally high data transfer rates ranging up to 32 Gbit/s, almost eight times faster than SATA 6G.

The X399 chipset on socket TR4 motherboards is connected to the processor via four PCIe lanes and the X399 platform itself supports USB 3.1 natively, meaning that as a rule no additional USB controllers are necessary to allow the board to offer ultra fast 10 Gbit/s speeds per USB port. X399 motherboards drive the RAM in the speedy Quad-Channel Mode, reaching RAM frequencies of up to 4.000 MHz depending on the motherboard.

A further feature supported by X399 motherboards is the overclocking of Ryzen Threadripper CPUs and, when paired with Socket TR4, this makes for a truly formidable enthusiast-level platform for gamers and content creators.

Features of the ASRock X399 Taichi in ATX-Format

The ASRock X399 Taichi is a motherboard using the ATX-format and provides four PCI-Express 3.0 slots for graphics cards, each pair coming with a full 16 and 8 lanes to connect them to the chipset. Further expansion cards can be installed in the individual PCIe X1 slot. Furthermore the ASRock Fatal1ty X399 Professional Gaming supports, as an X399 motherboard, AMD's CrossFire and NVIDIA's SLI technology for multi-GPU setups. Up to 128 GB DDR4 RAM can be installed in the eight memory banks, allowing the RAM to run at a maximum of 2.666 MHz natively. Overclocking allows for even higher clock frequencies up to 3.600 MHz.

Special Features of the ASRock X399 Taichi Motherboard at a Glance:

  • 4x PCIe 3.0 x16 (x16/x16/x8/x8) for high-end graphics cards
  • 2x USB 3.1: Type A & Type C + 3x M.2-slot PCIe 3.0 x4
  • DDR4-RAM up to 3.600 MHz in Quad-Channel Mode
  • BT/WiFi module, 2x Gigabit LAN
  • RGB-LED lighting including RGB-LED headers
  • Modern UEFI-BIOS with temperature monitoring

Data storage devices like SSDs and hard drives are managed via eight SATA 6G connectors (incl. RAID support) as well as three M.2 slots and a U.2 port, each of which is connected to the CPU via four PCI Express 3.0 lanes. M.2 SSDs from 30 to 80 mm in length can be used and, moreover, the advanced NVM Express protocol is also supported which is optimised for the highly-parallelised data access of modern PCIe SSDs.

A small highlight of the ASRock X399 Taichi is also to be seen in the I/O panel located to the rear of the motherboard where a USB 3.1 Type-C port is located. The new, thin, and finally reversible USB Type C port Gen 2 reaches maximum speeds of 10 Gbit/s per port. Two LAN ports, a USB 3.1 Type A port as well as eight USB 2.0 ports round out the range connectivity options for peripherals.

Some of the special refinements offered by the ASRock X399 Taichi RGB-LED lighting and RGB-LED headers as well as a WiFi module that even supports the extremely fast AC standard. Additional internal connectors include two USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 connectors respectively for a total of 4 ports, as well as five 4-pin headers for CPU and case fans as well as water pumps, additional power connectors for stable overclocking, and last but not least a variety of internal status/debug LEDs, headers and switches.

Note: Due to the size of the Ryzen Threadripper, Socket TR4 differs from previous sockets. Please follow the CPU mounting instructions of the motherboard when installing the CPU. This is an LGA socket. The pins are located on the socket, not on the CPU.

First time with an ASRock board, have always used Asus in previous builds. Must say I am very impressed. Even came with the very latest bios so that I could install a 2950X immediately and booted without any problem.
A lovely piece of kit that is a very good buy.

ASRock X399 Taichi

läuft alles stabil und ohne probleme,vor allem ein deutsches einstellbares bios. und alles was man braucht.


Sehr gutes Board für die X399 Plattform

Das Board bietet alle Features, die man von einem heutigen Mainboard in der HEDT-Klasse erwarten darf. Das Layout ist gut durchdacht und mit einer Threadripper CPU sind den Erweiterungswünschen eigentlich keine Grenzen gesetzt. Die RGB-Beleuchtung kann im BIOS abgeschaltet werden. Für alle, die den RGB-Wahn nicht mitmachen möchten.
In der Verpackung findet man keine Überraschungen:
Sata-Kabel, SLI-Brücken, Schrauben für die M2 Steckplätze, Handbuch und eine Treiber CD.

Für das Gebotene kann man im Vergleich zu den anderen X399 Mainboard eigentlich nur 10 von 10 Sternen geben.

Ebenfalls 10/10 Sternen gehen an Caseking selber. Wie immer super Support und schneller Lieferung. Und das obwohl das Mainboard eigentlich nicht mal auf Lager war.
