    I don't remember the information source, but according to my impression, there are two dimm.2 slots, one directly connects with CPU but another connect with PCH.

    Asus needs to be more transparant with release information.. Pre-orders have been up for a few days now, and these motherboards are nowhere to be seen. At least let us know if we are talking July, August or even later so we have easier time to decide whether to go with something else or wait for the Rampage VI Apex or Extreme...

    And I have a hard time figuring out these prices, how come Strix X299-E Gaming is 350 USD, while Prime X299-Deluxe is 499 USD? What exactly are you paying extra for? The specifications looks identical besides a few extra USB-ports ran out the awful ASMedia Third-Party controller that is inferior to embedded/integrated Intel controller anyways. The price different is huge, but there is nothing obvious about the two motherboards that indicates why there is such a huge spike in prices between them.

    And now rumours has it that Extreme will be 600 USD+, and Apex around 500 USD. Again, there is nothing with the Rampage VI Apex spesifications that clearly indicates why it should cost 500 USD compared to the 350 USD for the Strix X299-E Gaming. Yeah, it's clearly tailored for optimum overclocking and performance by cutting complexity on the board to ensure the best preformance. But why would cutting DIMM-slots etc make it so expensive compared to the rest of the boards when it still features the same controllers and I/O? It's still the same WiFi-controller, same LAN-controller, the same overall I/O, the same chipset feature set and whatnot.

    The Extreme is different as it adds expensive parts like 10Gbit LAN (these controllers are expensive) and some other unquie features so it makes sense it would be more expensive. But for the rest I can't for the life of me understand what really set the Strix X299-E Gaming, Prime X299-Deluxe and Rampage VI Apex apart that would indicate that one costs 350 USD, the other 499 USD and the later pushing it up towards 500 USD.

    Thanks. Seems like I saw only one dimm.2 slot on the R6E. *

    The Apex has 2 DIMM.2 slots because there are no on board M.2 slots where the other boards have 2 on board slots.

    I don't know why people complain about X299 so much for me platform should be great performer for next 5 years. I saw a unusable number of bad comments and recommendations to avoid completely until new socket. WHY? I'm not for that definitely.
    If someone think 5 years is long period... I know but X299 platform have potential to serve most demanding customers more than 5 years.

    Do you remember people before invest in Xeon and keep platform longer.
    Now with X299 first CPU could be 8 core. Later for 2-3-4 years price of 12-14-16 cores i9 will drop, and they are far better than Xeons because people will OC them.
    Imagine 14-16 cores on 4.5GHz... BooooooooooM!!!!! That's because I like platform with more opportunity.
    Some motherboards cost over 400$/euro and they work with Intel Core 4 Cores and Xeon 4 Cores. Now 18C/36T but not Xeon, normal desktop CPU capable to OC but performance in multithreaded applications as Xeons.

    ONLY THERMAL BUBBLEGUM SPOIL IMAGE. CPU BLOCK DIRECTLY ON DIE, PRESSURE 10gr. Thermal paste to be contact from CPU block and CPU die.
