Intel X99 Motherboards and DDR4 Memory Buyer's Guide (Launch Edition)

By: Steven Bassiri | Guides | Posted: Aug 30, 2014 7:03 pm

Intel X99 Motherboard Charts


DISCLAIMER: I looked almost everywhere for the information on the following motherboards, however, many times different manufacturers label things differently, and many times specifications are misprinted or wrong. Therefore I want to make sure people understand that the information below is from manufacturer websites, but when that wasn't available, I looked at third party sources such as images.


In a perfect world, you should wait for reviews to come out before making buying decisions, as specifications alone don't mean everything, however, this could be a good option guide if you are thinking of X99. The purpose of this guide is to help speed up your research of X99 motherboards, so you can focus on more specific motherboard features.




Note: Prices as of 08/29/2014, lowest price from reputable retailers.




Note: If you utilize one SATA Express on any of the following boards, you lose two of the SATA 6Gb/s ports listed.


Note: M.2 (N/T/U): N= Normal (2x PCI-E 2.0 lanes), T= Turbo (4x PCI-E 2.0 lanes), U = Ultra (4x PCI-E 3.0 lanes).




Note: ASUS 6+3, the +3 comes off an additional fan controller board included in the package.


I should also state that the X99 chipset doesn't offer more than 10 SATA 6Gbps ports or more than 6 USB 3.0 ports, so there is obviously a lot of bandwidth sharing going on in almost all the boards above. This means that on many of these boards, bandwidth is being shared, and not all the features might be available at the same time.
