MSI Creator TRX40; It Might Be A T-REX But It’s No Dinosaur!
This Kingly Beast Is Almost $800
Thirdripper comes with a new chipset and socket, the AMD TRX40 and sTRX4 respectively which bring PCIe 4.0 support to the platform as well as the ability to handle the extremely high core counts you will find on these new CPUs. With MSI’s Creator board you also get a Type A and a Type-C USB 3.2 Gen2 port, eight USB 3.2 Gen1 Type A and even four legacy USB 2.0 so there is no way you could run out of places to plug things in. If you are more into daughterboards, would four PCIe 4.0 x16 slots be enough to satisfy you or is it the 256GB of Quad-channel DDR4-4400 that really gets you salivating?
The Guru of 3D takes you on a tour through the rest of the features of this board as well as performance in their full review.
