Leaks for AMD’s TRX40 platform are coming quick and fast, with MSI being the latest motherboard manufacturer to have images of its next-generation Threadripper motherboards appear online. 

MSI’s TRX40 Pro WiFi and TRX40 Pro 10G have appeared online, with the images above and below coming via @KOMACHI_ENSAKA over on Twitter. Like other leaked TRX40 motherboards, MSI’s offerings appear to utilise quad-channel memory in a 2 DIMMs per channel configuration and use some heavy VRM heatsinks. 

Like other leaked TRX40 motherboards, MSI’s offering also utilises a chipset fan for enhanced cooling, suggesting that these motherboards support PCIe 4.0, much like most of AMD’s X570 motherboards. 

What differentiates the TRX40 Pro WiFi and TRX40 Pro 10G are their internet connectivity options, with the WiFi featuring an integrated WiFi card while the 10G features a 10Gb Ethernet add-on card. Not many workstation users will require both WiFi and 10Gb ethernet, making this a great differentiating factor between these two motherboards. 

At this time the pricing of these motherboards and their release date remain unknown. We will keep you updated as we learn more about AMD’s next-generation Threadripper platform.
