A Thunderbolt-equipped ASRock motherboard has just been launched with the Z77 Extreme6/TB4 Motherboard. The Pegatron-owned manufacturer has outfitted the Z77 Extreme6/TB4 motherboard with two Thunderbolt ports, whose speedy connectivity can also be further expanded by attaching six compatible devices in each port using what ASRock calls its Daisy Chain feature. ASRock estimates blistering dual channel transfer rates of up to 10 Gbps per Thunderbolt port, which also happens to be PCI Express and DisplayPort compatible. The four RAM slots can accommodate 2800MHz memory overclocking, 7.1-channel onboard audio, along with NVIDIA quad-SLI and AMD quad CrossFireX GPU support, as well as a generous helping of the usual ports: eight USB 2.0 ports, four SATA 6Gbps ports, and six USB 3.0 ports.
