Asus showed a new member of the TUF family at CeBIT on Monday, the Sabertooth X99. The motherboard is compatible with SSDs with NVME interface and includes support for USB 3.1.
The Sabertooth X99 can accommodate PCI-E and M2-PCI-E SSDs with NVME interface, and the mini-sas HD connector on the Hyper Kit adapter also accepts a 2.5″ SSD based on SFF. 8639. The motherboard also provides a system for getting information from the board on smartphones and tablets without turning on the PC, which Asus named TUF Detective Technology.
The socket is suitable for the Haswell-E generation of Intel Core i7 processors. Furthermore, the board supports a maximum of 64GB DDR4 memory and there are, for example, five PCI-E 2.0 slots or three PCI-E 3.0 and two PCI-E 2.0. The TUF board also has two USB 3.1 ports ‘type A’ and eight 3.0 variants.
Furthermore, the motherboard offers all the latest gadgets in the field of cooling, says the manufacturer on its website. By providing almost the entire motherboard with a fan cover to optimally control the airflow, all components must be optimally cooled. New Thermal Radar 2 software allows the user to control up to 11 fans in addition to fans on graphics cards.
