I am trying to wait as long as possible as I have re-purposed my old components. I have historically used Asus products for both personal and company use and have always liked them. I hope that we can receive some more information soon as to the planned release and board details.

    No probs. It will come out. I know waiting is tough, but it will be worth it.

    No, VROC does not support non-Intel drives for bootable RAID with consumer CPUs. Only Xeon's are afforded the luxury of using non-Intel drives for VROC. Intel decision.

    Oh well, thanks. Will the DIMM.2 socket allow a bootable RAID configuration? Or are there enough onboard M.2 slots for this?

    VROC then will support third party NVMe for non-bootable RAOD drives then? If so a CPU with 28 PCI-lanes and 2 M.2s in VROC RAID, would there still be 28 PCI-E lanes using VROC or 20?

    I do hope the APEX/Rampage will have fixed VRM Heatsinks.

    For the APEX I have Corsair Dominator Platinum RAM and the Dominator Platinum RGB RAM Fans. These are nice as they will fit over both the ram and the DIMM x2 slots for cooling.

    Raja,

    Is there a chance the extreme (or any ASUS X299 board for that matter) will allow a PCIe configuration of 8x/8x/8x with a 28 lane CPU? In looking at the manuals for the boards that are available it seems they only allow 16x/8x/1x with a 28 lane CPU. Is this correct? I'd prefer to get the TUF Mark 1 or Strix board or but would consider the extreme if it allows this configuration. I see every other board manufacturer allows this config with any of their X299 boards, but I really want an ASUS board. I'm not looking for 3 way SLI , I just want regular SLI with a slot for another PCIe card.

    If we truly are limited to 16x/8x/1x with 28 lane CPUs on ASUS X299 boards it means we can only plug 2 PCIe cards and that's a pretty disappointing use of PCIe lanes. Can you please comment on this? Will it work on the RVIE or even the X299 TUF Mark 1 or Strix. Thanks!

    Actually Brighttial I was looking for a cooling fan on the other end on the M2 SSD under that shielding.

    The post you quoted states non-Intel drives are not supported for VROC. Non-Intel means third-party drives are not supported. Drives that are not made by Intel aren't supported by VROC. VROC doesn't support third-party (non-Intel) drives. I think that covers it, yes?


    It's commonly know that the VRM heatsinks on the Apex and R6E were revised, so not sure what else you're hoping for.

    One onboard M.2 slot, the other two are on the DIMM.2 module. For it to be bootable with non-Intel drives it would have to be wired through the PCH. Not something that' I'd deem worthwhile given max DMI bus throughput is 32Gbps, heh.

    The Rampage VI Extreme site overview on the official Asus site has had an update. With a picture of the board with the updated heatsink design. Hopefully more info and specs will be updated soon. Any clue when that will be Raja?
