@ASUS@elmor@[email protected]Dear ASUS
It is very clear by now that, Your Head of ROG motherboards department and Project Engineers for AMD x399 motherboards
have made a bet on releasing a ROG motherboard for Tr4 only to find out in time that You should have release instead a WS x399 motherboard, and thus left a ton of clients who did purchase Your Zenith Motherboard hanging there with no support development because of the cut in resources and funding that should be dedicated to this platform.
While It is understandable that You had to make a hard choice because PCIe gen 4 was still not available, there is no excuse for not debugging this BETA stage Motherboard
so for it to have at least all of its basic features to work at AMD Tr4 specifications and capabilities.
I Hope that You do understand that if You do make a X399 motherboard it has to have all the slots IO connections to take full advantage of the whole 64 PCIe lanes offers.....You have fallen into the misconception that TR4 is about cores while it is instead about PCIe Lanes
TR4 is designed for HPC
not for Intel grade like HEDT.AMD x399 HEDT motherboards should be HPC platform
Future ROG MB should come with as standard 7 16 PCIe lanes just as WS motherboards so that even gamers can run games using 6 gpus as SLI will not be necessary.DEAR ASUS
The least You can do now, is to send an official letter of apologies to Your x399 customers and fire and replace the X399 platform Chief Officer, because this has become a Ethical problem now, for which the people who spend money of Your products demand amendments.Until that moment I feel safe to say that Your x399 concept, quality, engineering, and support is a complete piece of cheap junk
Please do note that if You had made a 7 PCIe slots dual 10 Gbit ethernet IO WS motherboard or even a ROG one with these specifications, You would have sold it like bread even if Threadripper was coming in a 4 core variant.
This is a further reason for having Your Chief of X399 platform resign and be replaced, as You would have sold at least 70 times
more than what You actually did. Your chief has caused You financial losses, bad reputation and catastrophic missed opportunities on x399.
