ASUS ROG Dominus a la imatge, Core i9 XCC confirmada per tenir una memòria de 6 canals



This Tuesday at its Computex presser, Intel unveiled an unnamed 28-core/56-thread HEDT (client-segment) processor that's capable of being bench-stable at 5.00 GHz. The chip is a client-segment implementation of the Skylake XCC (extreme core count) silicon, which features 30 Mesh Interconnect 'tiles,' of which 28 are cores and two integrated memory controllers. The XCC silicon features a 384-bit wide (6-channel) DDR4 memory interface, and it turns out that whatever SKU Intel is planning, will require a different motherboard from your X299 board that can handle up to 18 cores and 4-channel memory. It will require a client-segment variant of the LGA3647 enterprise socket from the Purley platform. One of the first of these is the ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) Dominus.

Clarament més gran que ATX, ja que és un factor de forma E-ATX o SSI, aquesta placa trau potència de dos ATX de 24 pins, dos EPS de 8 pins i tres PCIe de 6 pins, i té un VRM de 16 fases important amb dos blocs de dissipador de calor. Sis ranures DIM4 DDR4 flanquegen la presa, tres a banda i banda, amb cadascun dels seus 64 bits d'ample dedicat a la presa. El silici XCC presenta un complex d’arrel PCI-Express gen 3.0 de 48 carrils i, per tant, la placa podria tenir almenys dos PCI-Express 3.0 x16 capaços d’amplada de banda completa, entre una càrrega de vaixell de connectivitat d’emmagatzematge basada en PCIe i dispositius a bord.


Actualització: This motherboard may have been a quick modification of the WS C621E SAGE, by removing one of its sockets, and modifying the rest of the board accordingly. Prototyping a board like that, for a company with ASUS' resources, would barely take 2-3 weeks by our estimate.
