AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X Review With ASRock X399 Professional Gaming and ASRock X399 Taichi Motherboards
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X10th August, 2017
ASRock X399 Taichi Motherboard- Unboxing
The ASRock X399 Taichi comes in a very large package with a front cover that exposes the board it self. The package has an easy to carry design which is a good addition from ASRock. The front of it has the large X399 Taichi logo along with the gear design that Taichi boards are known for. Labels include Ryzen Threadripper, AMD Crossfire, NVIDIA SLI and RGB LED. There’s also mention of AMD Socket TR4 and X399 chipset on the front.
The back of the package lists down several major features of motherboard which includes a 60A Dr.MOS power supply, Dual USB 3.1 10 GB/s, a 802.11ac WiFi and the entire specs sheet of board. There’s a lot to go through which I will detail in the closer look section.
The front cover flips open to reveal the nicely packaged motherboard along with other features of this impressively high-end motherboard. Aside from being a enthusiast class design, the Taichi is also a full fledged workstation design with support for 4-Way NVIDIA Quadro SLI and AMD FirePro series cards. Once again, a whole range of features are detailed on the box but I will take a look on each of them in detail.
Within the package are two compartments, one houses the motherboard with foam packaging around it which protects the motherboard during carriage. The second compartment houses the accessories.
Accessories for the motherboard include 2-Way / 3-Way and High-Bandwidth SLI bridges, two screws for M.2 devices, a pair of SATA cables, two WiFi antennas, an I/O panel, a manual and a driver disk. It’s recommended to download the latest drivers from the official ASRock webpage as they are more recent updated compared to the ones shipped in the driver disk.
Outside of the package, the ASRock X399 Taichi is a beast which shows its power through design and build quality. It’s a stunning motherboard that looks and feel like a part of an enthusiast family.
