The idea of TAICHI is about bringing balance and equality to the energy and force around. The ASRock TAICHI series of motherboards are designed with this concept in mind. Features should meet the requirements of the target user group without any additional fuss. Features themselves should gel together to provide seamless user experience. It's all about striking a balance for a TAICHI motherboard.
The ASRock Z270 TAICHI is a feature packed motherboard. It has got all the different premium functions and expansion ports that you could have ever wanted for a motherboard. Here are the features that we think would bring the utmost value to creative professionals.
ASRock includes a larger voltage regulator than its mainstream gaming boards, dual Gigabit Ethernet plus wireless network controllers, Type-C and Type-A USB 3.1 (Gen2) ports, a pair of SATA controllers that extends the total 6Gb/s port count to 10, DTS Connect for the ALC1220 audio codec, and three M.2 ports that work at the same time as the three metal-reinforced PCIe x16 slots.
Easy to Setup
Understanding that creative professionals are usually the less technical bunch, the ease of installation is one of the key considerations for these type of builders. More specifically, after putting all the different components together with the motherboard, the whole setup just works flawlessly. There are no additional efforts required for any sort of troubleshooting or configuration of the setup. The default settings that are provided will get things started for the builder very easily.
Moreover, the UEFI BIOS is also well planned and organized. It is rather easy to find out where every individual required setting is placed, and then make changes to these settings accordingly. The EZ mode is also very user friendly for the non-technical bunch.
Reliable System Components
We would not want to have an unreliable system that force shuts down after rendering for 24 hours of video footages at 99%. Reliability is also another major importance for workstations that are used in such use cases. ASRock focuses their efforts by making the TAICHI Z270 one of the most reliable motherboard in the market by equipping it with high end electrical components. Furthermore, they are also utilizing a digital circuitry and a 12 power phase design for a stable current and voltage regulation throughout the motherboard, thus enhancing the stability of the whole system.
Great Storage Options
It is probably the first time that we have seen 3 x M.2 slots on a motherboard. The motherboard also features 10 x SATA ports for hard drives or SSDs. This motherboard is simply made to handle multiple storage devices in different (RAID) configurations based on the users.
