The TRX40 Creator features three onboard M.2 slots, while the TRX40 Taichi only has two. But the Taichi version also includes a PCIe (opens in new tab) x16 to 4-drive M.2 adapter card.
Both boards include 20 Gbps USB3 2x2 (Type-C) connectors and Intel Wi-Fi 6 adapters, but while the Creator’s dual-Ethernet connections include one 10GbE, the Taichi’s fast networking is only 2.5GbE. Both motherboards (opens in new tab)have 90A Dr.Mos power stages. However, the Taichi is rated at 16-phases, and the Creator is only rated at eight.
Pricing has not yet been announced, and availability will coincide with the Ryzen Threadripper 3000-series launch on November 25.
