X399 ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha AMD X399 (Socket TR4) E-ATX Motherboard

AMD Logo For the enthusiast processors of the Ryzen Threadripper series, AMD has created a 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 ASUS ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha in ATX-Format

The ASUS ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha is a upgraded version of the original Zenith Extreme motherboard, using the ATX-format and provides four PCI-Express 3.0 slots, but spaced for three graphics cards, each slot coming with a full 16 and 8 lanes to connect them to the chipset. Further expansion cards can be installed in the PCIe x4 slot. Furthermore the ASUS ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha 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 3.200 MHz.

Special Features of the ASUS ROG Zenith Extreme at a Glance:

  • 4x PCIe 3.0 x16 (x16/x8/x16/x8) for high-end graphics cards
  • 5x USB 3.1: Type A & Type C + 3x M.2-slot PCIe 3.0 x4
  • DDR4-RAM up to 3.200 MHz in Quad-Channel Mode
  • BT/WiFi module, 1x 10Gigabit LAN, 1x Gigabit LAN
  • RGB-LED lighting including RGB-LED headers
  • Modern UEFI-BIOS with temperature monitoring

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.
