With all the modern day motherboards rolling out for Intel Coffeelake processors, this time, MSI has come up with X399 SLI PLUS for AMD Ryzen Threadripper. The beast processor by AMD was always in need of more and more compatible motherboards to mount it over and this one is the 9th motherboard option in a row. Intel, however, is faster in terms of producing X299 motherboards which are 48 in number.
Despite Intel having numerous options, SLI Plus focuses on helping those with lesser budget. It is very similar to ‘Carbon Pro’ in terms of layout and design. Sadly there isn’t any Reinforced memory slot and a very few reinforced PCIe slots. The audio chipset is left uncovered while a single shield covers the M.2 slot.
