Late June?

Guess we're looking at late June for availability of the R6E. *How about the 7900X? Anyone know?

Just route the extension in your case behind the board. The pump header on my R5E10 is near the 24 pin power connection. I routed mine in a similar fashion near the large 24 pin cable.

So with the new X299 Skylake-X platform we are seeing a new technology called Virtual RAID over CPU (VROC) from Intel, which will allow up to 20 m.2 drives to be put in RAID 0 as a bootable drive and be based off the CPU instead of the Chipset. I watched a video showing 8 drives in RAID with a 13.5GB/s Seq read. The caveats of this technology is that it:
1. only works with INTEL M.2/SSDs, no Samsung, OCZ, WD, ect M.2s
2. only works on Skylake-X processors
3. only offers RAID 0, unless you buy separately a dongle which will unlock RAID 1, 5, 10, ect.

There are a few boards like the APEX which has a dedicated slot for M.2s to use the VROC and one slot for M.2s to use off the Chipset. From what I understand, non-intel drives will be viewable and usable as storage drives (much like they are now on the x99 platforms) but won't be able to be made as boot drives in RAID. The Rampage VI has one of those DIMM.2 slots but I think it is connected to the chipset.


So my question is, what about the normal RAID technology using the chipset? Will non-Intel drives be allowed to create bootable RAID drives like the z270 platforms and if so, will they be limited to the 3.5GB/s bandwidth or will it have no cap like the x99 allows for storage RAID drives? (I currently have two sm961s running about 6.5GB/s in RAID 0 as a storage drive. MSI and Asus have put out PCI-e Cards that can hold 2 to 4 m.2 drives for RAID purposes with cooling. I'm just curious if we will be able to create a bootable drive using RAID 0 and non-Intel drives?

Thoughts? Comments?

I think, the limitation is voltage/heat of chip.

Is the size of the extreme known? My current build is in a corsair 460x, the edition 10 fits being a small e-atx but tight 🙂

2014 with X99 chipset Rampage V Extreme was ready immediately.
If they launch 1-2 months later than it's better chance to avoid some bugs.

From german computerbase.de:

Ab Ende Juli kommt Rampage

Noch keinen genauen Termin oder Preise gibt es für die Rampage-Modelle. Diese sollen aber „voraussichtlich Ende Juli“ erscheinen.

Says the Rampage boards are expected for a end of July release.
