ASUS X399-E Strix Gaming Review



If you've been excited by the Ryzen Threadripper CPUs then the ASUS Strix X399-E should be just the motherboard for you. We find it if it is.

I have to question Asus' motives these days. A gaming board for what is clearly meant as a workstation CPU (and small servers too I reckon), and this isn't the first of them. In fact they don't even make a workstation board for this CPU. I guess they expect only gamers to buy these CPU's, which seems strange to me.

I dont think they expect to sell many at all. Mainly because of TR rather than the board itself.

To be honest the only thing that looks uber about that board is the cover on the IO. Then you remove it and realise there's a pittance in there. Not enough phases either.

I am finding it hard to differentiate it too much from the B350 Strix. I know it has lanes and slots etc but what good is all that if the performance stinks?

Ed. I'm sorry, HOW MUCH?!?!?!?!

Which Bios where you using - current available as far as I can see is 0402? Any chance that you had a Spectre microcode update applied and or MS patch? Would account for a bit of performance drop.

Was tested last year. Spectre etc make no difference to normal desktop machines.
