    X399 motherboards are still a relatively scarce commodity, and most available models right now are the top-of-the-line, eye-wateringly-expensive models with more bells and whistles than most users know what to do with. The ASUS ROG STRIX X339-E is poised to enter the market at a more affordable price-tag than most other X399 motherboards currently available, eschewing features that some users might call superfluous for a good computing experience.

    The ASUS ROG STRIX X339-ET is equipped with an Intel Gigabit I211-AT network chipset, 802.11AC wireless capabilities, and the ALC S1220A audio chipset from Realtek. 4x PCIe 3.0 x16 slots, 1x PCIe 4x and 1x PCIe 1x round the expansion slots, while the 2x M.2 slots, 1x U.2 and 6x SATA 6 GB/s should be more than enough for your average storage needs. Expect this motherboard to hit retail sometime between August and September.

    Looks quite good, lets hope that board comes in below 400$.

    Disappointment. 250 $ class , Empty and too big. Very similar to the intel x299 model .

    I dont follow - there already are the top end zenith extreme.

    They cant really make it much smaller due to the size of the VRM and the 8 mem slots

    Its simply a lower SKU for a smaller price - how can that disappoint you?

    Space is enough. Zenith has a much better offer of options and the parts are better. And Gigabayte has put everything on the ATX size..
