The new gaming motherboard of X99-TF which supports both the modules DDR3 and DDR4 has been launched by a Chinese manufacturer.
According to reports from Tom’s Hardware, a color palette of black-and-white has been opted for by Huananzhi for its new motherboard. Matte black is the dominant color that has been mated with white heatsinks.
The power structure for DDR3 And DDR4 Support On New X99-TF Motherboard has got an ECS of 8-pin as a standard norm along with power connectors of 24-pin. The subsystem of power delivery has six phases. while cooling actively relies heavily on small fans two in number.
Do not get fooled by the size. According to the manual, the temperatures can be reduced by 30 degrees. The motherboard X99-TF has as many as two ports of M.2 2280 and eight ports of SATA III. These ports can be used so that the HHDs and SSDs get connected. As of upgrades, there are two slots for PCIe 3.0 x 1 and another two slots for PCIe 3.0 x 16. One PCIe 3.0 x 4 also features on the board.
On the rear side, Ethernet port, audio jacks along with PS/2 port and standard USB 3.0 ports can be found.
However, on the downside, there is no wireless tech on the board. Every M.2 wireless card has an M2 slot dedicated to it.
The slots of DDR3 and DDR4 can be found near the socket of LGA 2011-V3. They are located on either side of the socket very clearly. the motherboard can give support in memory to the degree of 128 GB.
The memory speed that can be supported by the ceiling cap is 1,866 MHz for DDR3. In the case of DDR4, it is increased to 2,400 MHz.
But a problem is there.
At a time, only one memory can be activated.
The chip model for Haswell Xeon can be supported by the memory module of |DDR3 as it is quite choosy. Some of the examples of it are E5-2696v3, E5-2672v3, E5-2678v3, E5-2669v3, and E5-2629v2.
The Huananzhi gaming motherboard X99AD3 is used in the gameplay. It is not at all clear about the support of DDR3 and DDR4 for X99-TF coming from the US.
The motherboard of X99-TF is just a variant of the motherboard of X99 of the same company that released at the beginning of the year. It should not be confused with ASUS’s board X99-A.
Not much material is found regarding the benchmark and performance reviews of X-99 AD3. However, it has been found that AD3 works only with Xeon and does not work with Haswell-E i7.
