What a shit board. Who's going to pay $1000 for 2x M.2 slots and 2 NICs only one of which is 10GbE. I paid ~$260 for something way better than this.

This board is ready for Water cooling the mono block that they put on the board is worth like $400 or something stupid. The one that really gets me though is a desk from Thermaltake that was a prototype at last year's Computex and now is avaialble due to pre orders at $11,999! So even though it seems foolish to members like you and me I am sure they will see all 1000 of these they are making.

@Gasaraki Which X570 did you already buy?

I paid around that 260 for my TaiChi Ultimate, it only has 1 x 10GBe, what board has two for that money? I'm genuinely interested to know as I'd prefer 2 x Aquantia 10GBe to 1 + an Intel 1Gbit.

You can only run one chipset M.2 at full Gen4 speed too.

And yes @kapone32 The Aqua looks like the bargain of the year compared to those desks.

I'm actually afraid for what the price of TR3 will be when they are released. I am sure I will be buying an X570 board though, there are so many choices, it is actually staggering the amount of selection the modern user has with AM4 in terms of CPU and MB combination choice.

@saikamaldoss Probably even more than that, when the next Zen arrives next year. :) I'm thinking there will be 2 more cores per chiplet.

I would gladly pay the 999.99 price point for a limited run board of 999 especially when doing so will take me away from intel and back to my AMD roots when FABs existed in Austin Texas. You fail to see the aesthetics and the engineering involved. If you would like one to make your e-pin hard message me you just might get one out of spite. :+)

I was gonna settle for a phantom gaming x but since you are offering ;)
