ASRock's X399 Taichi was the first X399 motherboard we took a look at, and it not only performed well, but it was also loaded with quality components. ASRock's take on the X399 platform is interesting, to say the least. They are using high-quality parts, implementing solid platform features, but not adding in too many aesthetic features. The motherboards aren't covered in RGB LEDs, although they can be if that's what is needed. The Fatal1ty X399 Professional Gaming is ASRock's top of the line X399 motherboard, and it takes the quality we saw with the X399 Taichi and adds in more features.
ASRock might as well have left out the "Gaming" at the end of the motherboard's model name, and just called it the professional, but that's too boring for an X399 motherboard. X399 is designed for professional use, and if a professional wants to game on the platform, it's easy to do, so the name actually makes sense.
Let's take a look at how the motherboard does.
The X399 Professional Gaming features dual Intel NICs, an Aquantia 10Gbit NIC, USB 3.1, USB 3.0, SATA6Gb/s, three Ultra M.2 slots, support for up to 4-way SLI/CrossFireX, U.2, and even multiple RGB LED headers.
The X399 Professional Gaming costs $339.99.
