"Using the Daisy Chain feature, the Z77 Extreme6/TB4 supports up to twelve Thunderbolt devices, six in each port, ASRock points out.... the motherboard sports four DDR3 slots that can be overclocked to 2800MHz, supports NVIDIA quad-SLI and AMD quad CrossFireX, and features high end components like premium gold caps, digi power, and an 8+4 power phase design."

Looks pretty good, but there still aren't very many devices that have TB on them. It's still a long way till we start to see this these ports in all Motherboards.

As much as I initially liked Asrock's black/chrome heatsink design, I'm tired of seeing it on nearly all of their motherboards. That aside, I'm still not seeing many uses for Thunderbolt. I guess it'll have to wait a bit longer.

I have a question

What is the point of TB when we don't have a large variety of thumb drives, portable HDD's, phones, etc with them? USB3 is only *just* coming into those devices, 95% of them are still USB2 and at least USB3 is backwards compatible.
Thunderbolt is just sitting out there on it's own.

the problem with this board is that they removed the msata for hdd cache (the normal z77 extreme6 has a msata)
