    Default MSI X99S SLI Plus

    Intel's Haswell-E high-end desktop processor has yet to arrive, but motherboard makers are already teasing products designed for it. MSI released a picture of its X99S SLI Plus on Facebook last night. Behold the blacked-out aesthetic:



    The accompanying caption doesn't say much, but we can glean a few details from the picture. This thing has four PCIe x16 slots, eight DDR4 DIMM slots, and eight Serial ATA connectors. An M.2 socket and SATA Express port are also visible in the sea of blackness.


    As much as I like the murdered-out look, the lack of color makes it difficult to determine how the slots and ports are connected. We'll have to wait to find out how many of those PCIe slots have Gen3 lanes, whether any of the storage interfaces are linked directly to the CPU, and how much of the onboard storage relies on auxiliary controllers.


    At least we shouldn't have to wait too long. This morning, ASRock announced that its X99 Extreme4 is the first X99 board to be receive official Windows 8.1 certification. That release doesn't include an image of the Extreme4, but if the certification process has begun, finished products must be just around the corner.

    Man, I am loving the new motherboards for the X99 series.
    I really do hope I can get a chip to get some boards for review.

    Hmmmm.....I was going to sit out the X99 go-around....but I do believe this would make a nice replacement for my Z97 Sabertooth, especially since I have a 4960X sitting in my desk drawer. May just have to sell the 4790K before I even got to play with it.

    Coming from an AMD perspective......I am actually very interested in the X99 platform and getting a system up and running myself. Why? Just because. lol

    I'm absolutely sure you'll do Sandy. This will be most likely my next upgrade (i7 5960x + ASUS R5E or whatever name will be), first was i7 960 + ASUS P6X58 De Luxe board (I don't count earlier chips and processors), then i7 2700K + ASUS M4E P67 (skipping all z68/77/87/97), then my actual i7 3970X + ASUS R4BE X79 (skipping 4th gen processors).
