    The power solution has been upgraded so that it can handle a sustained 500W+ load, which the original R6E board can't, even with active cooling. The VRM costs twice as much, but better deals with transients (at least 30mV less sag under fast transients).

    The VRM fan curves can be controlled. By default, they don’t switch on until 60C, so they’re not constantly active. You can adjust the curve as you see fit, and if the chassis has reasonable airflow, you won’t even need them.

    Have a look at the manual, which is available online.

    Two cards can be used with two drives. Disclaimers are added when there are conditions. As you can see there is a disclaimer for U.2, but not M.2. There is also a VROC key slot.

    The aluminium cover costs $10 more than the last iteration. To buffer that cost, decision was made to remove the AD standard, which will never be widely adopted. The AX standard seems to be the next milestone. We already have two AX routers on the market, with a third on its way. As soon as client controllers are available, we’ll implement onto future boards. It's always a game of compromise. We went with a more rugged engineering approach this time. Hence the alu cover. It helps dissipate heat from drives. Not that the last iteration was bad, it's just this is better. They will both be sold. So no harm done. If rugged engineering is not you, pick something else. There are lots to choose from.

    Thanks for all the info. I have no doubt this board will be a capable performer like the previous versions. It's a great idea to have both the Extreme and Omega for sale simultaneously as I prefer the look of the Omega. Only time will tell. Looking forward to the reviews, but I'll be first in line for this board when they become available.

    Seems like this thread has become a bashing zone for Asus. Kind of sucks for us users looking for a new board for their X299 rigs that has a capable power delivery system, capable VRM cooling, and what should be great overclocking potential. If you don't like the looks, OK I get it. You already own an Extreme, so there is no need for you to upgrade....great. If the board doesn't offer the features you want/need, buy something else. I, for one, will be buying this board and I'll probably not be alone. Just like the Intel refresh of X299, some like it and some don't. I know I will not be trading my delidded chip for a soldered chip. Same goes for this refresh. Some will make the switch, some won't.

    I have a feeling the direction of this thread will change once the boards start rolling out to consumers and reviewers. Until that moment comes around, I'll just wait impatiently for these to hit the shelves.

    We can clean it up once you get your board, Rich. Or start another.

    I own the original R6E and I much prefer the looks of the Omega. Money spent where needed instead of all the mumbo jumbo the first board had is much appreciated.

    When will it become available? Please be more specific than "Q1". Another website says this month but I couldn't find any other sources for that.

    Just preordered one 2 days ago at Newegg, but I just checked and it has auto notify at this point.

    How come no thunderbolt port was added to the omega?

    what kind of tempertures do you expect to see with this omega VRM design versus an extreme VI with a monoblock? Do you think the monoblock would give you lower temps, or this solution? Based on the way it looks, I dont thin a monoblock can be made for the omega

    The Vi Omega has twice the number of power stages, the components are spread over a wider area, and there is more copper in the power plane (which can also help reduce CPU core temps during sustained loads), so comparative temps are not easy to predict.

    the spacing pci express lines is suitable for rtx cards 2.7 to 3 inches thick. If the next graphics cards are in 7 nm and again thick on 2 slots then this board will look weird

    ROG Dominus Extreme may be a better evolution of the Rampage VI Extreme. But only if we jump to the processors LGA 3647 socket for Intel Xeon® W-3175X processor
    https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/ROG-Dominus-Extreme/

    The support of the ROG RAMPAGE VI EXTREME OMEGA can be used (by sorting) to update some discontinued drivers and utilities on the R6E support. As always Asus support does not insure.
