ASUS releases their dual-Xeon C621E-SAGE Overclocking motherboard

Some people simply need as much CPU performance as they can muster, where cost is not an issue and multi-threading is key. ASUS has released a new motherboard for Intel's new Xeon Scalable line of CPUs, offering dual LGA 3647 sockets and an "overclocking" feature which is said to be unique to ASUS motherboards. 

Xeon overclocking is something that has been almost non-existent in recent years, with the EVGA SRII series motherboard of old being confined to the history books of high-performance PCs. This new "BIOS Mechanism" from ASUS does not seem to be overclocking in the traditional sense (not full control like Z370 for example), though it will nonetheless deliver some performance benefits to their users. Sadly ASUS has not specified exactly what kind of gains users can expect when making use of this unique feature. 
 

ASUS WS C621E SAGE breaks performance barriers, giving you the capability to overclock dual Xeon CPUs. With its unique BIOS mechanism dedicated to boosting CPU performance, WS C621E SAGE can deliver incredible system speed.


With this motherboard, ASUS supports 6 channels of 2666Mhz DDR4 memory per CPU, allowing for up to 12 DIMMs of ECC DDR4 memory to be used at once, allowing up to 384GB of memory to be supported with 32GB DIMMs and up to 768GB to be supported with ultra-large 64GB DIMMs.

This motherboard also offers seven PCIe 16x slots, three of which run at 16x speed and four of which run at 8x speeds (An additional PCIe slot can be run at 16x mode when certain other lanes are not in use), This motherboard also comes with four U.2 connections and a single PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 slot. 

Storage wise this motherboard also comes with ten SATA 3.0 ports, with ASUS shipping this motherboard with an Intel VROC key to allow NVMe/PCIe RAID configurations to function. 

On the rear of this motherboard, ASUS offers dual Gigabit Lan controllers, two USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports, four USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports and two USB 2.0 ports.

At this time ASUS has not revealed the official pricing of this motherboard, though it is not expected to be cheap given the colossal price tag of Intel's LGA 3647 socket CPUs, which max out at $13,011.00 for their Xeon Platinum 8180M

It has 4 U.2-Connections. Just for clarity, as the article says 3, but the picture shows 4.Quote

This is not a dual X299/LGA 2066 socket, this is a much larger beast.

An equivalent from AMD would be dual EPYC motherboard, not dual threadripper.Quote
