Since the release of Intel’s latest Broadwell-E architecture, motherboard vendors have compiled a number of intriguing designs which cater towards the HEDT user. Unlike the majority of Haswell-E creations which opted for an understated theme, Broadwell-E motherboards tend to employ a more aggressive styling. This is probably due to the popularity of RGB lighting and prosumers willing to pay a premium to go beyond the typical 4-core/8-thread solution. Judging by the early Kaby Lake details, it seems the X99 platform is the only option for content creators and professionals who work with heavy multi-threaded workloads.
