Intel 5th Generation i7 CPU Support (Socket 2011-3)This motherboard supports 5th-generation Intel Core i7 processors in the LGA2011-v3 package with memory and PCI Express controllers integrated to support 4-channel (8 DIMM) DDR4 memory and 40/28 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 lanes.
Intel X99 Express ChipsetThe Intel X99 Express Chipset is a single-chipset design that supports socket LGA2011-v3 Intel Core i7 processors. It provides improved performance by utilizing serial point-to-point links, allowing increased bandwidth and stability. Additionally, X99 provides a maximum 6 USB 3.0 ports, 10 SATA 6Gbit/s ports for faster data retrieval.
Quad-Channel DDR4 3333+(OC) MHz SupportThe motherboard supports up to 128GB DDR4 memory that features data transfer rates of 3333+(OC) MHz to meet the higher bandwidth requirements of the latest 3D graphics, multimedia and Internet applications.
ATXThis motherboard is an ATX motherboard with the dimensions of 30.5cm x 24.4cm. It will fit in any case that supports motherboard sizes of ATX or higher such as a Mid Tower case or larger.
U.2 32Gb/sUnlock the full potential of your storage with NVM Express (NVMe) the revolutionary specifcation that lets your SSDs scream at top speed. Just attach your drive to the built-in U.2 connector with plug and play ease to experience data-transfer speeds of up to 32Gb/s.
M.2 32Gb/sM.2 supports up to 32Gbit/s data-transfer speeds. It is the perfect choice for an operating system drive, making your whole PC work that much faster. It supports Intel Rapid Storage Technology to ensure even faster access to data, refresh applications automatically and awake from sleep in just seconds!
SATA Express 10Gb/sSATA Express provides up to 10Gbit/s data-transfer speeds resolving the higher bandwidth request in the near future. Current SSDs consume up to 550MB/s, which is close to saturation point for SATA 6Gbit/s connections. Backwardly compatible with up to two SATA drives, SATA Express is the next-generation connectivity standard — and ensures that you and your system won't get left behind.
USB 3.1 10Gb/sCompared to the 5Gb/s provided by traditional USB 3.0, the all-new USB 3.1's 10Gb/s offers twice the transfer bandwidth, so transferring a Blu-ray movie takes less than 30 seconds.
