The latest contender in what seems to be a battle to see who can come up with the most unique or cool product names is ASRock, which has gotten an endorsement from a Taichi silver medalist for its Z370, X299 and X399 range of motherboards.
Yu-wei Chen of the Taipei 2017 Universiade has lent his strength (pardon the pun) to the brand and is the new face behind the company’s Taichi motherboard series. The partnership is said to be based on the dedicated martial arts spirit of Chen with the down-to-earth brand philosophy of ASRock. This combines to perfectly represent Taichi, an art that is a showcase of perfection, stability, and complementation of the five elements.
Chen really is a gamer!
The Taichi exponent is also a gamer of sorts, preferring League of Legends for entertainment. He is also familiar with PC components and agrees with the foundation concept of the Taichi series motherboards, which he himself uses.
“Our motherboard R&D team persistently focuses on product design based on user experience. Using Taichi concepts, we hope to present a motherboard series that simultaneously emphasizes both performance and stability,” said Chris Lee, Global Marketing Associate Vice President, ASRock.
The ASRock Z370 Taichi motherboard supports 8th Generation Intel Core Processors, 4333Mhz DDR4 and comes with 3 PCIe 3.0 x16 and 2 PCIe 3.0 x1 slots. The board is also quad NVIDIA SLI ready and can also handle AMD 3-Way CrossFireX.
The ASRock X299 Taichi XE supports Intel Core X-Series processors (these use the LGA 2066 socket) and boasts a 13 Power Phase Design, Dual Power Connectors, XXL Aluminum Alloy Heatsink & Heatpipe.
