    I think a lot of M-ATX purists are up in arms over the lack of memory and GPU support, but I think for a normal person it's actually perfect, especially with the new double capacity memory coming out that basically acts as 2 dimms in one. I'm actually digging the design and it still allows you to use an expansion card of your choice with a high end gpu.

    I love it, people in SFF Lab hate it xD

    yah, sli is dead. and she already has bluetooth/wifi etc. so a 16x and open ended 4x pci-e slot is good.
    Most high end cards are 2-3slots now anyway.

    4x ram slots would be nice though, instead of 3x m2.
    Only thing I dislike about the apex after realising 16Gb just doesn't cut it anymore and I have to sell the lot, rather than just buy 2 more sticks. :p

    edit: wait, does that have 4 m2 slots? 2 under the heatsink and another 2 on the DIMM slot? Madness.

    I think I read somewhere that score was stock settings, so single core up to 5ghz not 8 core @ 5ghz. Anyway, it's an ES i9, running on a modded bios Z270 with unknown laptop ram which is usually slower than desktop (3000mhz/3200mhz is the bleeding edge top end), I wouldn't put too much faith that 2008cb r15 is representative of retail silicon on Z370 / Z390.

    Pay no attention to the screenshot. It's just a demonstration ie showing the cpu-z & 8c16t. Actual testing in your machine will show much better results

    That's why they're pushing the double capacity memory, I think they go up to 32Gb per stick which should negate the need for 4 sticks. At least 3-4 M.2 slots allows for heaps of storage.

    Dimm 2 is for a double capacity ram stick.

    Some more leaked photos of MSI Z390I Gaming Edge AC and Godlike, looks like Z390 Godlike still has the same monster 16 phase for the vcore like his Z370 brother but with more RGB: https://steamcn.com/t427824-1-1

    I think the guy that wrote the article is possibly confused. First he says that the Dimm.2 slot is for double capacity RAM but the pictures show the DC RAM in the first DIMM slot as you have said.

    From what I know DC RAM uses DDR4 pin outs, and DIMM.2 uses DDR3 pinouts so there is no way DC RAM will fit into a DIMM.2 slot.

    Or... I could be completely wrong. :lol:

    Are we expecting September or October release for these? I might have to go 9900K for this round... I'm really not happy with X99 at all.
