ASRock today announced a new motherboard called the Z77 Extreme6/TB4 that is equipped with two Thunderbolt ports that support the revolutionary new file transfer technology.
Thunderbolt users may expect dual channel up to 10 Gbps per port transfer speed, which is also bi-directional and dual protocol friendly, including PCI Express and DisplayPort. The best part is that it isn’t only good for one device. With the Daisy Chain feature, each Thunderbolt port supports up to six devices through a single compact port. So the two Thunderbolt ports on ASRock Z77 Extreme6/TB4 support a total of twelve devices! It is blistering fast, easy to use, flexible and full of potential. It is said to be the future of high speed data transfer, but we all know that USB will not be going away any time soon!
Besides the breathtaking Thunderbolt technology, Z77 Extreme6/TB4 shares the same winning specifications as other ASRock motherboards. Premium Gold Caps, Digi Power and 8 + 4 Power Phase Design for providing stable voltage. Four DDR3 slots that are able to be overclocked to over 2800(OC)MHz. Support for NVIDIA Quad SLI and AMD Quad CrossFireX for those who pursuit high quality visuals, and Lucid Virtu MVP which adds even more mojo to the graphics. As for those trendy Windows 8 users, ASRock has the exclusive Fast Boot technology which allows you to login to Windows 8 within 1.5 seconds. Au contraire, there is Restart to UEFI for automatically entering the UEFI when the system reboot is too fast for loading it manually.
