ASUS Announces All-New TRX40 Series Motherboards to Unleash the Full Force of AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X
ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha, ROG Strix TRX40-XE Gaming and ASUS Prime TRX40-Pro S ready for latest 64-core processing behemoth
TAIPEI, Taiwan, February 7, 2020 — ASUS today announced ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha, ROG Strix TRX40-XE Gaming and Prime TRX40-Pro S, three all-new motherboard models specially engineered to unleash the savage computing power of the latest AMD® Ryzen® Threadripper™ 64-core, 128-thread 3990X processor.
While the existing ROG Zenith II Extreme, ROG Strix TRX40-E Gaming and ASUS Prime TRX40-Pro motherboards excel at handling 24-core and 32-core Threadripper processors, the new ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha, ROG Strix TRX40-XE Gaming and ASUS Prime TRX40-Pro S motherboards are designed to maximize the extreme performance of the latest 64-core AMD 3990X processor with higher-current power stages that deliver improved efficiency and more headroom for overclocking.
