    Just and idea: ROG worlds first mobo with built in components

    Would it ever be possible for Asus to develop a KING of all Motherboards?
    Would the computer run faster, be more stable if some of the initial components for built in and fully optimized?
    Built in 1TB m.2 capable of 3500 Mb/sec Read/Write speeds*
    Built in 16GB 4266Hz memory module

    If the initial memory modules were built in and optimized, would it be possible to install 3200Hz memory into the additional slots and not have the speed of the additional memory affect the initial memory modules Hz speed?

    Of course we can’t do a fully built in CPU or GPU because we only require 1 of each and it’s better to have choice on those devices.

    But what if the Hard Drive and Memory were pre-installed and fully built into the motherboard, perhaps having these components built in will allow for much better optimization on the motherboard, perhaps this may open doors to a new era of motherboard?

    ASUS does sell pre-built machines which are optimized. Other than that you can go to a boutique PC builder that sells built-to-order machines that are optimized and hand selected.

    There is no reason to sell a bundle with 3rd party components since people can just buy those separately and get what they want. For optimal suggestions reference the QVL.

    Possible ... yes ... that's exactly how so many laptops, tablets, phones, mobile devices, and other purpose-built platforms are buit.

    Practical ... not really. Enthusiast-grade desktop mobos are attractive exactly because they can support multiple hardware configurations and upgrades.
    Converged hardware has some major drawbacks: not only is the hardware configuration locked (and proprietary) but the entire hardware component fails when a single integrated hardware component fails. Combine the high prices of top-end mobo, CPU, and GPU hardwares and replacing the entire machine whenever a single DIMM (or whatever) fails isn't attractive.

    ASUS does sell pre-built machines loaded out with top-tier (or with lesser-tier) hardwares. As do many other OEMs.
