ASRock Readies the Fatal1ty X79 Professional (LGA 2011) Motherboard

Since apparently six X79 motherboards aren't enough, ASRock is now putting the finishing touches on yet another LGA 2011 model, the Fatal1ty X79 Professional. This new, gamer-oriented board supports Intel's Sandy Bridge-E processors, and features a 2oz copper PCB, Premium Gold Caps, four DDR3-2400 memory slots, ten SATA ports (six are likely 6.0 Gbps while the rest are 3.0 Gbps), and four PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots enabling CrossFireX or 4-way SLI setups.

ASRock's latest Fatal1ty offering also comes with one PCIe x1 and two PCI slots, six USB 3.0 ports (four on the back plate, two more via a header), a debug LED, 7.1 channel audio, two eSATA connectors, one Fatal1ty mouse port (USB 2.0, allows users to set the mouse polling rate to 500 Hz), Gigabit Ethernet, a FireWire port, and a Clear CMOS button. Moreover, the board has UEFI BIOS, extras like the XFast USB and XFast LAN technologies, and is bundled with a 3.5-inch I/O panel providing two USB 3.0 ports.

The Fatal1ty X79 Professional has yet to be priced or dated but we'll keep an eye out for it.
