ASRock X299E-ITX/ac Motherboard Review by TPU

Our good friends at TechPowerUp have posted a review on the ASRock X299E-ITX/ac Motherboard. You cna also check out our quick look, setup and installation here.

There used to be a time when ASRock wasn’t one of the premiere motherboard makers in the PC market. That was a long time ago. However, what ASRock did to get noticed was to build boards that didn’t fit the norm and worked amazingly well. They showed off their engineering prowess, and it paid off. What helps them stay relevant even today is that they continue to create such products, and today, we are going to look at one of those, the ASRock X299E-ITX/ac.
