Two interesting slides from Intel leaked today through TPU with the source being Hermitage Akihabara, the slides give the final specs and features of the upcoming Series 9 chipsets. Though there are n...

Out of curiosity, what's the DMI bandwidth on these things? Are we still on PCIe 2.0 x4 equivalent?

Dynamic storage accelerator is also present on Z87 and its here to improve SSD writes when cpu is in low power mode aka C3/C6/C7 states, so it doesn't slowdown.

PCI-e configuration I want from top to bottom:
x1
x16
--- whatever, I won't use this
x16
---whatever, I won't use this
x16

The PCI-e configuration on most boards is usually really retarded. Please, somebody make a board with this configuration.

I want dual spaced x16 slots with additional slots that are actually useable. Is that so hard to do?

Best one I've seen was an MSI X58 board:
X16
[something]
[something]
X16
[something]
[something]
X16

That way you get ventilation space.

Yeah, really pisses me off that the board manufacturers don't put more space between PCI-E slots (to save space/money??). Why do they still build them with the assumption that people use graphics cards that occupy only 1 slot width???? Or that people on X99 type chipsets don't do anything other than use 1 PCI-E slot for graphics card and nothing else.

Really annoying that a normal decent modern high-end graphics card takes up two slots space and blocks the usable PCI/PCI-E slot underneath that I could have used for RAID/sound/other interface cards.

Regarding X99, like the sound of 10 x SATA6. Also glad I didn't upgrade from X58 to 2011 now (once again not backward with 2011!).
