AMD Ryzen Threadripper Motherboards Comparison

Published: 2nd Aug 2017, 10:41 GMT | Comments

It appears that most reviewers are going to use the ROG ZENITH EXTREME motherboard from ASUS. This is the highest-end model for X399 Threadripper processors, but also the most expensive. Only three motherboards are currently available for sale, with more coming soon.

I made this comparison to give you some idea which motherboard has the best features. Some have LCD panels, some have five PCIe slots, others 10 Gigabit onboard LAN. I guess there’s a motherboard for everyone.
