I Heard that You Like Storage, So Here's ASRock's X99 Extreme11 with SAS3 12Gb/s ports

TAIPEI, Taiwan, October 17, 2014 – Have you ever tried to move files around only to find a system warning about running out of storage space? It's a heart wrenching moment when you must involuntarily decide which files to keep and which should be deleted, arguably one of the toughest life decisions one must make. Luckily now there's ASRock X99 Extreme11, a monstrous LGA 2011-3 motherboard that holds a total of 18 SATA3 6.0 Gb/s ports, including ten ports that are provided by Intel's X99 chipset, and the other eight ports SAS3 12.0 Gb/s or SATA3 made possible by an added LSI SAS 3008 controller chip. The data transfer rate is fascinating too. With a couple of SSDs, ASRock's testing lab reached a ludicrous file transfer speed of 6.1 GB/s!
