Asus ROG Strix X99 Gaming: 34 facts and highlights

1. RAM speed

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
2133MHz
ASRock Z270 Taichi: 21233MHz

2. Signal-to-Noise ratio (DAC)

When an audio chipset converts a digital audio signal to an analogue one (for example when playing an MP3 on your speakers), a certain amount of noise is added. A higher SNR means that there is less added noise and the audio quality is better.
115dB
Gigabyte G1.Sniper 5: 123dB

3. overclocked RAM speed

The motherboard supports overclocking the RAM to a higher speed. By increasing the speed at which the memory runs, you can boost the performance of your computer.
3333MHz
ASRock X299 OC Formula: 4600MHz

4. maximum memory size

The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.
128GB
Asus Z10PE-D16 WS: 1024GB

5. SATA 3 connectors

SATA is an interface used to connect mass storage devices such as hard drives and Blu-ray drives. SATA 3 has a native transfer rate of 6 Gbit/s, which is twice as fast as SATA 2, the previous revision. This is particularly useful if you use an SSD as it can perform at higher speeds.

6. PCIe 3.0 x16 slots

PCIe slots allow you to connect peripherals to the motherboard, most commonly graphics cards but also others such as sound cards and network cards. The ‘x16’ represents the number of lanes it has, with more lanes supporting higher data transfer rates. PCIe 3.0 offers higher transfer rates than PCIe 2.0, and can give increased performance.
