At Computex 2018, Intel demoed a 28 core CPU that was running at 5 GHz. This seemed very impressive till we found out that it was a marketing stunt. It seems that Intel is serious about bringing an actual 28 core CPU to market and the ASUS ROG Dominus motherboard is proof of that.
ASUS ROG Dominus Features And Specifications
The motherboard is a beast and unlike anything that we have seen so far. It makes sense that ASUS was chosen to be a part of this. As the company does make some very impressive motherboards. The ASUS ROG Dominus motherboard features a 32-phase power delivery design and can support up to 192 GB of memory.
The ASUS ROG Dominus motherboard is meant for workstations and enthusiasts that are looking to take advantage of the Intel 28 core CPU that is going to be available later this year. The motherboard uses the LGA 3647 socket. The motherboard is supposed to support overclocking on the 28 core Intel CPU and that is why it comes with dual 24-Pin, quad 8-Pin and dual 6-Pin Power Inputs.
One thing that we noticed at the Intel demo was that the CPU pulled more than 1000W from the wall and it will be interesting to see how well this upcoming CPU does when it comes to power draw. While Intel claims that the CPU will be out before the end of the year and the ASUS ROG Dominus will support the chip, I am still skeptical.
Talking about the other features of the ASUS ROG Dominus. The motherboard comes with 12 DDR4 DIMM slots, dual DIMM.2 slots, two U.2 and eight SATA 3 ports. That will accommodate a lot of storage and is more than the average consumer is going to need.
While this is a workstation motherboard, ASUS is still offering features like Aura Sync RGB Lighting. It is safe to say that the ASUS ROG Dominus comes with a lot of features and it will be interesting to see how well it can handle the Intel 28 Core CPU. For more news regarding the matter stay tuned.
