Gigabyte releases X399 DESIGNARE EX for AMD Ryzen Threadripper processor
Gigabyte announced the release of the new X399 DESIGNARE EX motherboard. With features such as Smart Fan 5, RGB Fusion, and support for the powerful AMD Ryzen Threadripper processor, the X399 DESIGNARE EX is crafted for content creators who take pride in their own work.
The exterior design of the motherboard is a work of art in itself and provides plenty of aesthetic value. It comes with a jet black colored PCB, silver colored armor, and a customizable Accent PCH Overlay. The DESIGNARE logo and stylized lettering is imprinted on the overlay which can be illuminated with the RGB Fusion App, giving the motherboard a unique, vibrant style.
The 16-core, 32-thread AMD Ryzen Threadripper is one of the most power hungry processors in the market so the motherboard uses a design combining 8-pin and 4-pin gold plated solid power connectors to power such a CPU. The motherboard’s server-grade digital VRM design with 3rd Generation PowlRstage allows it to effectively regulate the power flow within the motherboard.
The X399 DESIGNARE EX comes with 48 PCle Gen 3 lanes and provides support for 4-way AMD CrossFire and 4-way NVIDIA SLI, enabling the usage of multi-graphic configurations. The board allows and supports graphics cards such as those from the NVIDIA Quadro lineup to be seamlessly implemented into the motherboard to provide high quality 3D performance, larger design, and increased rendering capabilities.
This motherboard provides Triple NVMe PCle x4 M.2 connectors with transfer speeds of up to 32Gbps for top-of-the-line storage performance. These powerful storage devices are protected by M.2 Thermal Guard which minimizes the effects of thermal throttling, keeping those storage devices up to 20 degrees Celsius cooler. The motherboard supports free NVMe RAID with up to seven NVMe SSDs, a rarity even for motherboards with strong storage performance.
Furthermore, Smart Fan 5 technology provides the perfect cooling solution for such a high performance motherboard. It allows users to monitor the motherboard and set their PCs operate within safe temperatures in critical areas of temperature limits to ensure that temperature ranges. Users can also customize fan speed, maximize efficiency, and minimize unwanted fan noise.
RGB Fusion Technology is a natural fit with the X399 DESIGNARE EX motherboard, and provides the user with incredible style and flair. With onboard LEDs as well as support for 5V or 12V external digital lighting strips, the motherboard provides the user with the ability to illuminate the motherboard or even the Chassis with cool lighting effects. Designers and enthusiasts alike can utilize the motherboard’s RGB Fusion Technology to create lighting patterns that allow users to express their unique artistic style.
The motherboard comes with dual Intel GbE LAN ports, Intel Dual Band Wireless 802.11ac connectivity with cFosSpeed, quad channel DDR4 support, a front USB 3.1 header, USP DAC-UP 2, Q-Flash Plus, and much more. The X399 DESIGNARE EX motherboard has everything that content creators could ask for to help them produce the highest quality content.
