Beautiful. Let's hope this new minimalist look passes all the way down the ranges and they have removed the essay from the cheaper boards

I like how they both look pretty much identical too. That's a nice touch.

I do like that the 8pins have been moved to the right had side, especially on the Zenith. I don't know how many times I have had clearance issues, obviously depends on the case and if there is a radiator or not but this is a good move in my opinion and I hope others follow suit. good looking boards too

The Fallout 3 fan in me loves the branding.

The Zenith looks so much better, but I'm really sulking at the loss of the 2-way indium mirror shroud on the Rampage

Plus, if the Zenith is a refresh to properly handle the 32 core 2990WX at full chat, does this mean it'll be fine for a 48 (or even 64) core Threadripper 3?

But then is this a stop-gap product given we're likely to see X499 boards with PCI-E 4 for the new 'rippers? Have Asus already put the engineering into the traces, signallers and whatnot to get the Zenith PCI-E 4 ready?
