ASROCK X299 Taichi XE Circuit Analysis Continued
We find a Realtek ALC1220 codec along with a Texas Instruments NE5532 amplifier, and Gold series audio capacitors and physical PCB isolation help to improve overall audio signal quality.
We find an Intel i219v and i211AT on the motherboard and they provide the dual Gbit NICs on the rear IO.
An ASMedia ASM3142 and ASM1543 provide the rear USB 3.1 type-A port. A USB 3.0 hub, the ASmedia ASM1074, expands one USB 3.0 lane into four for the internal headers and the type-C port.
An ASMedia ASM1184e expands one PCI-E 3.0 lanes into 3-4 for certain low bandwidth features such as the WIFI controller, ASMedia SATA6Gb/s controller, and PCI-E x1 slot. An ASMedia ASM1061 is used to provide two extra SATA6Gb/s ports.
ASRock has a custom Flash Back chip, which provides USB BIOS recovery. The main SuperIO is the NCT6791D, and a Nuvoton N76E88AT provides RGB LED support.
The ICS 6V41742B provides better BCLK overclocking margins. A bunch of NXP PCI-E quick switches move around CPU PCI-E bandwidth for different PCI-E configurations.
The WIFI is provided by an Intel Wireless AC 3168NGW 1x1 433Mbps controller.
