I kinda have this feeling that 3502 is the last bios.
it would be really awesome if asus would make optane happen on our ws board.

I believe it would offer a solid benefit for HDD and read a good review here: http://www.anandtech.com/show/11210/the-intel-optane-memory-ssd-review-32gb-of-kaby-lake-caching/8 finatl thoughts page shows what your after. AFAIK, this is not an ASUS limitation rather simply the X99 chipset itself, sadly its pretty old now!

ye,thanks for the link.

now I would hope that optane might happening on x99 on pcie based optane ssd,much like the intel 750 series.

Naw, they will use it as a selling point for the Sky/Kaby lake "X" Platforms getting ready to come out. Intel is up against a wall at the moment, so they will use gimmicky things now to sell you on an upgrade.

Will likely fizzle out the same way SSD Caching on the Z68 chip-set did.

Looking at the current details of the next platform I would be wasting money to upgrade my current system. The current X99 platform has been around since 2014 with minor improvements to the motherboards along the way. Planning on skipping X299. Intel has really slowed the pace of progress.

X299 will give extra lanes. 44 for Skylake-X and 46 for Kaby Lake-X. Only Gen3. You waiting for Gen4 lanes?

Unless the performance improvement justifies the added expense then sure. Over in the TXP thread some people were selling their cards to upgrade to the 1080Ti and than they were losing it after Nvidia released the upgraded TXp's. For what? A 6950x with a pair of original TXP's with proper cooling and overclocking will be more system then most will need for a while. I'll wait until the software starts to catch up to the speeds of the hardware. Played Battlefront yesterday in 4k with max settings with no stuttering or delays. Immersive and beautiful. Witcher also.

Updated video of my system.

Just read the whole 270 posts of complete history of your build. A mammoth effort and so much good information for anyone with this board.

Couple of things that I have discovered which may benefit anyone looking for maximum performance. I have borrowed a couple programs from ROG which have been of great help. I would like to start off my saying that I have made a science out of wiping my system drive and doing a fresh OS install. It helps that I have 3 very fast SSD's which make the effort as painless as possible. My primary drive is a 1 TB 960 pro and I have 2 more 512 GB SM951 NVMe drives which I use to back up all my libraries, drivers, and programs. I can literally wipe my OS drive and install Windows in less then 5 minutes. That said I hate the process, and over the past few weeks have not had any OS issues. I am using Win 10 pro Creators update and updated drivers for all my hardware. I would say that I am VERY cautious with my Windows settings and take all precautions NOT to share as much as possible with Microsoft. I have a detailed process I perform after every fresh OS install to ensure maximum privacy. I am a retired US Army 82nd Airborne Division combat veteran who has DOES NOT TRUST the federal government.

With that out of the way I would like to share some programs which have helped me tweak my system for maximum performance.
For memory I use ROG MemTweakIt. Downloaded from the Rampage V edition 10 Windows 10 64bit menu
https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/ROG-RAMPAGE-V-EDITION-10/HelpDesk_Download/
For memory tweaking and overclocking TurboV Core. Downloaded from the same location.
For general windows details HWiNFO Downloaded herehttps://www.hwinfo.com/
I also use AIDA64
It goes without saying but I will anyways. Make sure you download CPUID and GPU-Z
It's easier if I just do a screenshot of all the benchmark and system related programs I use. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.





One final thing...

I can not stress this enough but I DO NOT USE ASUS AI SUITE. WAY TO MANY ISSUES.

Hi.

After updating bios to 3502.. I cant get my CPU to downscale anymore even if I turned on intel speed step. I reverted back to 3302, 3402... I cant seem to get the feature back. I already loaded optimized default. I have a 6850k. I used to run this at 4.2Ghz@1.275 core (42x100) and it downscales to 1000Mhz when in idle. Now I cant get it back... Now I am at default speed and it runs 4Ghz at stock all the time. Am I missing something here or something went wrong?
