MSI announces Threadripper X399 SLI Plus motherboard

Made for creative professionals and designers. Who apparently want RGB lighting too...

MSI's new AMD-based motherboard may be SLI-enabled, but it's not aimed at gamers - rather, at professionals and creatives who need a bit of hardware grunt.

The board supports up to 128GB of 3600MHz RAM, spread between eight DIMM slots, and also boast four PCIe slots, two of which come with Steel Armour protection to keep heavy cards  from damaging themselves or your board.

Oh, and yes, there's RGB. That's the law now - all high-end hardware must light up like a Xmas tree. This is MSI's Mystic Light tech, which lets you control your lights from a connected app. Which professionals just LOVE to do!

But the X399 SLI Plus also has three Turbo M.2 slots for speedy storage, eight SATAIII ports, digital power, Intel GigaBit LAN connectivity, OC Engine 2, and Titanium chokes. Here's the full spec sheet:
