    Oooh awesome! i do much prefer socket pins. Although pins on chip are in my eyes much easier to straighten if you do mess it up.

    But motherboards are cheaper than the chip.

    Mother of god the socket LGA 4094 is MASSIVE! :eek::o

    So zero chance for ITX motherboard for MASSIVE 16 core AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1998X CPU.

    Looks like the IO on these Asrock MB's are packed out. So it looks like there is no issues there.

    Also what is Ultra M.2? I assume it's just marketing?

    Ultra M2 is just ASRocks name for PCI-E 3.0 M2 slots.

    Also it looks like they support 64 PCIe 3.0 lanes which is just huge!

    It's just getting better and better for AMD, as long as Thread Ripper is competitive in performance and price. The 18 core Intel CPU is $2000 and Skylake-X and Kabylake-X aren't soldered. Intel have gone off their rocker. It seems as if Intel were taken by surprise with AMD's offerings and are too far into production to change anything.

    WTF? $2000 chip with crap thermal material? That's shocking if true.
    And this socket is huge - love it! Could be a 2 handed install required.

    We don't know if the 18 core chip is soldered or not, it is $2000 though. We do know that all the Skylake-X and Kabylake-X chips due for imminent release aren't soldered.

    I wonder if AMD 16core will be priced around £1000.
    If so and there is added perf with quad channel over dual channel ram over the infinity fabric, I bet it will sell like hot cakes
