MSI X99A Tomahawk Review

Real Hardware Reviews, the website that uses real bullets in all its hardware reviews, has just put the finishing touches in its review of the MSI X99A Tomahawk motherboard.

Even though the new Intel 200 series is just around the corner, socket 2011v3 motherboards and its ‘aging’ X99 PCH are still the foundation upon which arguably most serious PC gaming enthusiasts, workstation users, and general enthusiasts opt for. The reason for this is pretty simple: PCIe lanes. To be precise the number of PCIe lanes that they can offer. Mix in support for 10core/20 thread CPU Goliaths like the 6950X and it is self-evident why this platform is still the number one choice.
