ASROCK x570 CREATOR PCIE 4.0 MOTHERBOARD
The ASRock Creator is built specifically to fill the needs of content creators and has such high end parts as a Aquantia 10 Gigabit Ethernet, two Thunderbolt 3 Type-C ports, an included WiFi 6 802,11ax adapter which will simultaneously allow transmission of both 2.4 and 5 Gbps networks, along with BT 5.0. It has support for both AMD Ryzen 2000 and 3000 series processors and supports DDR4 4666+ (OC) memory.
This is also a PCIe 4.0 system and has three PCIe 4.0 x 16 slots, along with two Gen 4×4 Hyper M.2 ports. To top things off, there are also 8 SATA3 ports, 10 USB 3.2 Gen-1 and one Front USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C for when motherboard manufacturers decide to include those on their front panel.
This picture below demonstrates placement of the two Hyper M.2 Gen 4×4 SSDs. In earlier prototype manufacture, the heat these SSDs produced was of concern and Corsair solved this by including a heatsink with their SSD which can be removed for installations into systems just like this.
ASRock went a step further. Heat is moved from the SSD via thermal tape and dissipated through heavy aluminum heatsinks. The lower of the two SSD covers goes one further as that fan actively directs air around the SSD. A quick test on install with our Corsair MP600 NVMe PCIe 4.0 1TB SSD returned this :
HYPER M.2 GEN 4X4 M.2 SSD
5GB/s a second data transfer speed is almost as amazing as the fact that this SSD has performance above 700K read and write IOPS.
This is probably the most complete motherboard I have seen to date and it is not yet available on Amazon. Pricing elsewhere is rather extreme. Watch Amazon for a price on the ASRock X50 Creator.
