ASRock Z77 Extreme6/TB4 Gets Quad ThunderBolt Ports

AsRock has been getting more and more serious in the highend motherboard business lately and the addition of high speed ThunderBolt connectivity to some of its premium mainboards will make these even more highend and seriously expensive.

We just reported here that Gigabyte has decided to introduce a microATX mainboard with dual TunderBolt ports, but we’ve also unveiled the fact that those two ports raise the price of the device by more than $50. Sure ThunderBolt is a little faster than USB 3.0 and also has various useful features, but when two ports raise the price of a motherboard by more than 50%, most customers should really think if its all worth it.

AsRock’s new version of Z77 Extreme6 will be officially called Z77 Extreme6/TB4 and the rest of the features will remain pretty much the same, Chiploco reports. The mainboard supports Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge socket 1155 processors and comes with three ful-sized PCIe x16 slots with support for 3-way AMD CrossFire and 2-way Nvidia SLI. There’s no information on the pricing, but we expect this Intel mainboard to be considerably expensive.
