AMD's Ryzen launch must have been one of the most exciting of the past half-decade, as it brought AMD back into the high-end computer hardware market. Ryzen's strength is its workstation capabilities, where it does better than Intel in regards to multithreaded performance at a more reasonable price. To match Ryzen's exciting capabilities, motherboard vendors from across the globe have prepared and launched their first generation of high-end motherboards. One of ASRock's offerings is the X370 Taichi.
ASRock's X370 Taichi is their third Taichi branded motherboard to hit the market. The Taichi is one of ASRock's top-end motherboards, so it's loaded with the latest features. The ying-yang symbol provides a pleasant aesthetic to match your (Ry)zen processor. Excuse the wordplay, but the coincidence is a neat thing, and could provide for a great build theme.
The Taichi offers an interesting amount of features, above and beyond what the AMD CPU and chipset provides, and I will cover it all in depth.
The X370 Taichi features an Intel NIC, Wireless AC, 10 SATA6Gb/s ports, an Ultra M.2 slot and a normal M.2 slot, USB 3.1 type-A and type-C, as well as SLI/CrossFireX support.
The X370 Taichi costs $199.99.
