Computex 2016 - Asrock's first new board revealed today is a little modest, offering strong features at a mid-range price. The Fatal1ty X99 Pro Gaming 17 board, though, aims to offer more for a higher price, particularly if you're a streamer.

Like its cousin the X99 Taichi, the Fatal1ty features a 12 phase power design, support for dual ultra M.2, dual USB 3.1, dual band 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and a water pump header. What makes it stand apart is the included XSplit 3-month license and Creative SoundBlaster Cinema3 Audio card, both of which are great for streaming Overwatch or whatever else you might fancy.

Also featured is a "key master and Fatal1ty mouse port." We're not too clear on what these mean yet, but we'll let you know should we hear more.

The Fatal1ty MSRPs for $259; availability is unknown.
