MSI has launched a wide variety of products over the past few months, from the Radeon RX 5700 XT EVOKE graphics card to the latest MEG X570 Unify motherboard. The three X299 motherboards announced today have one thing in common: they are aimed at the professional and creator market. These are the Creator X299, X299 Pro 10G, and X299 Pro models.
The MSI Creator X299 motherboard features a unique black color scheme with Mystic RGB that shines through diamond cut-outs over the PCH and I/O heat sink.
The motherboard uses a 12-phase digital IR-VRM with 90A power amplifiers and the LGA 2066 socket is powered by three 8-pin connectors instead of one. There are eight DDR4 DIMM slots that can support 256GB of four-channel memory at speeds up to 4266MHz OC+.

It uses a 10G LAN + Intel Gigabit LAN connection with Intel WIFI 6 and 7 Turbo M.2 connections with M.2 XPANDER-AERO, 1 x Turbo U.2. MSI also offers the THUNDERBOLTM3 expansion card with double DisplayPort and double Thunderbolt 3.
The price of this model would be fixed at 500 USD. More information about this Core X motherboard can be found on the official product page.
The MSI X299 PRO line continues, the series comes in 10G and not in 10G flavors. Both plates have an 8-phase VRM that is cooled by a large aluminum heat sink and cooling tubes. The CPU socket is powered via two 8-pin connectors and you can see the eight DDR4 DIMM slots next to the CPU socket. The motherboards support up to 256 GB capacity at speeds up to 4200 MHz (OC+).
The board supports 3-way SLI/Crossfire and two M.2 slots supplied with the M.2 Shield Frozr heat sink. Both motherboards have an I/O cover but don’t have a pre-installed I/O display like the Creator X299, but get an M.2 Xpander-Z, which offers two M.2 ports that actively cool the fan on the AIC cover.
