Why? Even among the rarified crowd that this board would be geared towards, how many of them actually would have a 10Gbps connection (network or Internet) to even require it?
 


Maybe so but it is becoming more of a standard on high end chipsets like X299, I myself have a 16 port 10Gbe switch at home so lacking a 10Gb nic would mean I would have to purchase one since the onboard 1Gbit nic would be useless for me.

Platforms like Threadipper X399 and X299 are often used like workstations, like in a business, if editing and manipulating large images, videos or running virtual machines, you would want a high end NIC to handle the bandwidth.

99% of people gaming will be on Ryzen or Mainstream i5, i7, not HEDT X299 and X399

quote extremetech => '...NAS vendors such as Synology and QNAP allow upgrades to 10-Gigabit ...'

i imagine any gamer who needs or uses storage might find it sweet.

I have this Motherboard and i have no issues at all, it is a great board and real easy to navigate the BIOS. I made sure the BIOS was updated before doing anything major. Downside it does not have the 10GB LAN port like the ASUS board but none the less it is still a great board.
