Existing X79 boards should require no more than a firmware update to work with the latest processors. The UP4 wears its black-and-grey aesthetic well. There are two slots for each of the processor’s quad memory channels. Intel didn’t update the accompanying X79 Express chipset, which is why we didn’t see a wave of new motherboards rolled out with Ivy-E. The board has ferrite-core chokes and extra-beefy copper layers, too. AMD continued to enjoy strong growth in Q2 We can’t check clearances for every hardware combination, but we can convey a few key measurements.
