Looks more like another workstation board option as opposed to a refresh. or replacement. My point being that they did not remove any of the boards features when they refreshed to the USB 3.1 version. I could be wrong, but some people like yourself do depend on those extra storage features. I think that this board looks to be more of a competitor to the Asrock X99 WS-E/10G.

I havent seen that board myself.But it looks like pretty much the same board,but without PLX,LED pcie hinges/bracket,but 10gb NIC ports.
So that board actually looks horrible to me
tho two 10gb NIC ports would be awesome to have,but I wont be able to take advantage of that so.

I think the chips are still there; it's the heat sink that is missing.

I see it to now,I didnt see the upside down PLX chips for some reason,but why take away the heatsink?

Possibly it was just a mockup hastily barfed together for CES?

Their are a few things Asus could do to really entice people to shell out the extra cash for a refresh. I upgraded my USB 3.0 version to the USB 3.1 version just because I thought That was a big enough improvement. in hindsight it was not. Probably because developers have been slow to adopt the standard so I have not seen any usable benefit for my needs. Plenty of USB C devices, but not very many that conform to the USB 3.1 standard. This motherboard is a flagship product so they would get my attention, and money, if they added features that would benefit usability. I don't care about headers for LED lighting or flashy gimmicks. I would like to see them add onboard Thunderbolt 3. Or maybe a second M.2 slot. Preferably vertical mounting. Another issue I ran into, was the inability to plug my three monitors USB hubs, and my Lexar Professional Workflow with 4 modules into the USB ports because of the limitations of the chipset. I never thought I would see those USB limitations in a workstation board. Regardless if I had to choose one major improvement for a refresh, then my vote would be for onboard Thunderbolt 3.

Also, I would like to add that I found plenty of sites that have listed Asus's refresh of their X99 lineup but no mention of a workstation refresh.

One more thing. In regards to the replacement board that Asus sent me for the one that I RMA'd, I contacted Asus yesterday and was informed that the new board they sent me was indeed brand new and not refurbished. The board falls under the server warranty policy which states in part

During the Limited Warranty Period, Asus will, at its sole discretion, repair or replace any defective component.

The ThunderboltEX 3 from Asus would work on this board at full bandwidth would it not?

This would also give you a Type-C and a Type-A 3.1

Yes. My issue is that I'm going to have to sacrifice my Intel 750 PCie SSD in order to use it though. Also, since it's new they are hard to find in stock anywhere.

I see from your signature you have 3 GPU's taking 6 slots and the Intel 750. You will just have to sell the Intel 750 and get a Samsung 950 Pro to go in the M.2

Can you not offset something with a PCI-E riser?
