Colorful has just launched their flagship iGame X299 Vulcan X LGA2066 motherboard. The board will actually be available in two color variants, white with black accents and black with black accents. I can’t remember when a motherboard was launched in two different color variants. Out of the two I definitely prefer the white version. Both boards have an identical feature-set.
Each board draws power from a combination of 24-pin ATX, 8-pin EPS, and 6-pin PCIe power connectors. The CPU is conditioned by a 10-phase VRM and is wired to eight DDR4 DIMM slots as well as four PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots. For storage you have a 32 Gb/s M.2-22110 slot, a 32 Gb/s M.2-2280 slot, and six SATA 6 Gb/s ports. USB includes two USB 3.1 ports (one each type-A and type-C), six USB 3.0 (four on the rear panel and two by headers); and two special USB 2.0 ports on the rear panel which are optimized for gaming input devices, with additional electrical stabilization.
There are two Ethernet ports, one driven by the Intel i211-AT controller, and the other by Realtek DragonLAN 8118AS. For audio you have a Realtek ALC1220 CODEC with 120 dBA SNR; a headphones amp, audio-grade capacitors, and ground-layer isolation. There are also many overclocking features on the board as well as a dual-BIOS.
No word on pricing, but sadly we won’t see this board in the US.
