The stream is over - thanks everyone for joining us!

Join us on Twitch at Tuesday, May 10th at 2pm CDT for a live stream with JJ from Asus! Topics to cover include future X99 CPUs and Asus' next generation of X99 motherboards.

Feel free to post your questions for JJ below, or in the chat during the stream.

If Polaris GPUs wattage is low enough, can you guys make a design that has no 6 pin power plugs but recieves all its power through the PCIe Slot?

Will you guys make a budget "Gaming" Monitor ($100 price range?)

SilverWolf149 2 points 34 months ago

I like the idea of a "budget" gaming monitor. Also could you make versions that support FreeSync and one for GSync?

bobtherock 3 Builds 4 points 34 months ago

That's like asking Audi to make a budget car but has the features from the top of the range S4.

TheNoob 1 point 34 months ago

Phones do that all the time.

Yoh899 1 point 34 months ago

A monitor isn't a phone though is it? Not to sound rude but again just like @bobtherock pointed out, it won't happen sorry. Well a budget monitor might happen but not with top of the line specs ;)

ASUSTECHMKTJJ ASUS 11 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

We can make a PCIe power connector free but have also found in some situations it is beneficial to keep the power connector as it allows for more margin ( not only for overclocking but also Turbo clock speeds ).

As for budget monitors we already have very aggressively priced VN and VX monitors which are popular with gamers due to their low response times. As for higher refresh rates or technologies like FreeSync we are continuing to look at how we can offer more products. With this in mind it is difficult as many of these gamer centric technologies bring more cost ( and complexity ) to the designs.

There is the ASUS VX238H, its one of the top monitors in Pcpartpicker's list. Its 130$ but includes a $20 rebate totaling the price to 110$. Its a 1080p, 1ms, 60hz monitor. Has a nice profile and seems really good for its price.

TechyinAZ 14 Builds 0 points 34 months ago

Yuck. I don't want a 6 pin sticking out of my motherboard. :D

A $100 gaming monitor is going to be IDENTICAL to every other monitor out there except for maybe a 1ms responce time instead of 2-5ms.

Hackwood 1 Build 1 point 34 months ago

I think you misunderstood him. The left portion of a PCI-e slot is dedicated to power, and anything on the right of the divider is for data. That is why the 6 and 8 pin plugs are called supplementary power.

ewhac 2 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

While you don't explicitly declare support for ECC RAM on your X99-A motherboard, the X99 chipset itself does support ECC. Can ECC RAMs be used on an X99-A with full ECC capability?

ewhac 2 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

@asustechmktjj: Thanks for answering my question!

ASUSTECHMKTJJ ASUS 11 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

No problem. Thanks for the view and support.

eli_harper13 6 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

Will the x99-m WS have support for the new broadwell-e processors? As of now, BIOS updates have been released for all x99 motherboards except the WS line.

ASUSTECHMKTJJ ASUS 11 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

Stay tuned for future updates. We will continue to offer UEFI support for the current line of X99 WS motherboards.

eli_harper13 6 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

Any estimated date for this? Just wonder if I am going to after to wait months after the new 2011-3 CPU comes out just for the bios update? Think I'd just rather switch motherboards but I'd rather avoid it if I can, I really like my X99-m WS.

Jurunce_the_Mod_Guy 1 Build 1 point 34 months ago

Do you guys have plans for the Asus Rampage V Black Edition (Or Assembly, or whatever you guys plan on calling it)? Because I am stoked for Broadwell-E and I know you guys, based on your release history, have released a Black Edition for the X58 and X79 sockets when Westmere-EP and Ivy Bridge-E was released back in 2010 and 2013 respectively.

So I wonder if you guys are planning on doing a Black Edition motherboard for the Rampage V. If so, I'm in for one 9_9

ASUSTECHMKTJJ ASUS 11 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

You will have to wait and see.

dragoon20005 4 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

when will Asus release the GTX1080 and 1070 in Strix and ROG coolers?

and hints for possible GTX1080Ti?

would like to see a full EATX X99 board which supports 4 way SLi with triple slots GPU configs

most of the board out there have wasted PCI-E slots when a 2 slot wide cards block the neighboring PCI-E slot and also limit air flow between them.

Any plans for a Asus external DAC like the Essence ver 4?

ASUSTECHMKTJJ ASUS 11 Builds 2 points 34 months ago

As of right now thee is no confirmed release date for non reference designs for the GTX 1080 or 1070

As for a 4 WAY enabled X99 board currently we offer the X99-E WS and RAMPAGE V EXTREME. As for supporting triple slot 4 way configurations this is not currently being designed for. Currently we see that most 4 way enabled system focus on 2 slot cards ( blower based ) or utilize waterblocks.

Currently the highest end Essence is the Essence III. As for possible new Essence products it is a possibility but there are no immediate plans to release a new Essence product.

Artimaeus 1 point 34 months ago

A few thoughts. Aftermarket coolers tend to come out within a month of the card launch. NDA for a possible 1080 ti hasn't been lifted. Adding more space for graphics cards would mean you'd want an XL-ATX board, not necessarily E-ATX.

Matthewtina2015 2 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

Can you give us more info about your XG Rog Station 2?

ASUSTECHMKTJJ ASUS 11 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

Not at this time. Stay tuned for more information soon. We are still under the design and development stages along with careful validation.

Matthewtina2015 2 Builds 1 point 34 months ago


Thank you

Gishan 1 point 34 months ago

Are there any restrictions with the new boards in regards to 3-way SLI and M.2. I recently bought a X99 Pro only to find out that one of the PCI-E slots is disabled when using an M.2 drive. :(

ASUSTECHMKTJJ ASUS 11 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

Any board specifically you are interested in? Restrictions depending on the board and the type of controllers used and number of quick switches as well as the CPU being used and the number of lanes it enables.

Gishan 1 point 34 months ago

Sorry, was looking for your reply on Twitter. :) I'm especially interested in the Deluxe II or the Strix. CPU is a 5930K or 6950x, so at least 40 lanes.

Gishan 1 point 34 months ago

Is it possible to get SVN (Smart Volume Normalization) with onboard sound? Love this feature on my Essence STX!

ASUSTECHMKTJJ ASUS 11 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

Thanks for the feedback. This is definitely something we can discuss with our team. There are multiple ways to implement that affect cost or licensing. Beyond that we want to ensure if added that a reasonable amount of the community feels it adds value and is something they would utilize.

Enrico411 1 point 34 months ago

What a guy that JJ!! Is there something he doesn't know?


ASUSTECHMKTJJ ASUS 11 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

WOW, thanks for the kudos but in all honesty. I will never know as much as I do not know. Thanks for checking out the stream.

FlippinFred 1 point 34 months ago

I have still been waiting for your ROG PQ 34" curved monitor to be available in any of the major online stores in America. whats going on with it??

ASUSTECHMKTJJ ASUS 11 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

You will be seeing it show up in more etailers and retailers over the next couple of weeks. We have been pushing to increase production and push out to all our distribution channels.

FlippinFred 2 points 33 months ago

Thanks JJ..

Streams during school strike again!

Karter430 1 point 34 months ago

Hi i have a question for anyone! i have a asus Z170-A ATX LGA1151 motherboard, will this be compatible with the upcoming GTX 1080? Will i get good performance out of it? sorry if this is a stupid question, im new to PC building. :)


codezer0 3 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

Just wanted to say... now that I've had some quality time with it, I've been loving my PB287Q monitor.

It definitely strokes the right "PC Master Race" chords. :D

cgprats 1 Build 1 point 34 months ago

Any X99 motherboards under $250 coming out with AURA?

Stereotypical_Whale 1 Build 1 point 34 months ago

Quick question for JJ, and this is kinda one that is difficult to answer, but I noticed that the reviews on the maximus viii hero on Newegg doesn't have that great ratings, I was wondering why? BTW I'm in Canada.

Cannot comment on future AMD motherboard products. With that noted you can see AURA and RGB lighting is a continued focus for us and this will be considered for any new mid range and higher motherboards.

As for a MATRIX edition Pascal card I cannot confirm if a MATRIX card will be released but we will be offering non reference designs.
