4-Way SLI & CrossFireX Supported by Two PLX PEX 8747 Bridge Chips
PLX PEX 8747 is a PCIe Gen3 bridge chip that offers solid PCIe 3.0 lanes for PCIe devices and is optimized to support high-performance graphics. Via the two PLX PEX 8747 bridge chips onboard, this motherboard is able to support 4-way SLI or 4-way CrossFireX at PCIe Gen3 x16/x16/x16/x16 mode with four graphics cards.
Dual Ultra M.2
The two onboard M.2 sockets are a new interface for connecting Next Generation Form Factor (NGFF) SSDs or other devices. ASRock is the first in the world to implement PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 sockets on their motherboards. The Ultra M.2 interface pushes the speed of M.2 modules up to 32Gb/s, which is 3X faster compared to other M.2 Gen2 x2 solutions that are limited to 10Gbps. Furthermore, this motherboard is capable of powering two M.2 x4 SSD devices simultaneously at 2.8GBps!
12 Power-Phase Design
Designed with a 12 power-phase design, this motherboard features sturdy components and completely smooth power delivery to the CPU. Plus, it offers unmatched overclocking capabilities and enhanced performance with the lowest temperatures for advanced gaming as well.
XXL Aluminum-Alloy Heatsink Design
The extra-large aluminum-alloy heatsinks take away heat dramatically. As the motherboard's MOSFET and chipset areas are well covered by these heatsinks to protect them from overheating, these MOSFETs and chipsets can perform with lower temperatures so your motherboard and system will be more stable and reliable.
Premium 60A Power Choke
Compared to traditional chokes, ASRock’s new-gen premium power chokes effectively increase up to 3 times better saturation current, providing enhanced and improved Vcore voltage to the motherboard.
Premium Memory Alloy Choke
Specially designed for memory power delivery, the ASRock X99 Extreme11's new-gen alloy chokes feature a highly magnetic and heat-resistant design, thus delivering more stable and reliable power to the motherboard.
Ultra Dual-N MOSFET
By combining two silicon dies into one MOSFET, the motherboard's Ultra Dual-N MOSFET provides a larger die area with lower RDS(on) so the power supply for the CPU Vcore is more efficient.
Nichicon 12K Platinum Caps
The ASRock X99 Extreme11 motherboard's supreme 12K platinum capacitors boast lifespans of at least 12,000 hours. Compared to other counterparts on high-end motherboards that merely have lifespans of around 10,000 hours, ASRock applied Nichicon 12K platinum caps that offer 20% longer lifespans and provide more stability + reliability.
Tested under industry-standard 105C° ambient temperature.
Sapphire Black PCB
ASRock does not overlook any details, even those tiny ones. With a pure black PCB, the new Sapphire Black PCB represents rock-solid quality and gives the motherboard a more mysterious touch.
Supports DDR4 ECC/RDIMM Memory Modules
This motherboard is capable of supporting DDR4 ECC and RDIMM (Registered DIMM) memory modules which deliver server-grade performance and durability for high-powered computing systems.
ECC is supported with Intel Xeon processors.
128GB Memory Support
Designed to meet a maximum computing-power system, this motherboard adopts the quad-channel 8x DDR4 DIMM slots. Each slot supports up to a 16GB memory module, thus delivering a maximum capacity up to 128GB.
Purity Sound 2
Purity Sound 2 includes 7.1-CH HD audio with the Realtek ALC1150 audio codec, 115dB SNR DAC with a differential amplifier, TI NE5532 premium headset amplifier, cap-less direct-drive technology, EMI-shielding cover, isolated PCB shielding and DTS Connect. As Nichicon audio capacitors are what every audiophile has been longing for on a PC, ASRock applied these high-quality capacitors for Purity Sound 2.
This frequency-response chart was tested with 32ohm normal headphones. It indicates how traditional audio solution's frequency responses drop drastically at low frequencies. Compared to traditional audio solutions (2.0dB) at 20Hz low frequency area, Purity Sound 2 still maintains its frequency response (0.4dB) and provides better bass with the TI NE5532 amplifier, improving the bass quality by 20% (1.6dB)!
HDD Saver Technology
There's a dedicated 4-pin HDD Saver connector placed near the motherboard's SATA ports. By connecting it to the HDDs, you can shut down or turn on your HDDs via software when needed. HDD Saver technology secures more privacy, saves more energy and extends HDD life.
Use the Hotkey [Ctrl + Alt + S] to run HDD Saver under your OS.
Some sensitive digital components on the motherboard are vulnerable to power surges, the excessive current may cause your system to malfunction immediately. ASRock Full Spike Protection includes various technologies to prevent your motherboard’s components from being damaged by these unexpected voltage spikes.
Protects the motherboard from excessive surges from the power supply unit.
The onboard LAN chip is protected against sudden and violent voltage spikes caused by lightning.
USB: Added ICs (integrated circuits) protect onboard USB ports from electrostatic discharges.
LAN: Prevents onboard LAN from being damaged by electrostatic discharges.
MOSFETs: MOSFETs in critical areas use a special design for protecting them from electrostatic discharge during the installation process.
Unlike traditional motherboards that use analog power, this motherboard uses a next-generation digital PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation) design, which provides CPU Vcore voltage more efficiently and smoothly, so that the stability and lifespan of the motherboard is greatly enhanced. Simply put, it's more precise and more efficient.
Intel Dual Gigabit LAN
Users are able to connect two LAN cables to this motherboard's rear I/O. Dual LAN with a teaming function enabled on this motherboard allows two single connections to act as one single connection for twice the transmission bandwidth, making data transmission more effective.
ASRock X99 Extreme11 motherboards offer greater airflow and faster heat dissipation! ASRock X-FAN allows the motherboard to breathe smoothly. It will be automatically activated only when the system rises to a certain temperature under heavy-loading. Normally, ASRock X-FAN will remain deactivated to give users the quietest computing experience.
A-Tuning is ASRock's multi purpose software suite with a new interface, more new features and improved utilities, including XFast RAM and a whole lot more.
