Bring on the beast.
MSI is upping the ante for AMD's Threadripper CPU. The X399 MEG Creation motherboard has been specially designed to accommodate the next generation of Threadripper CPUs sporting up to 32 cores and 64 threads.
The secret sauce is upgraded power circuitry in the form of a 19-phase supply, ostensibly to support the purported 250W required by the high-end chips. Other than that, the board supports three full-speed M.2 slots, cooled by a massive heatsink, expandable to seven via a card that uses 16 lanes for a further four drives.
