And they are poised to knock down the titan that is ASUS. Espically after ASUS let ECS start building their boards....

I've actually been eyeing ASRock for an upgrade later with my wifes computer.

If it had 10 sata ports like the other ASRock E9 boards....I would so have snapped this bad boy up for my 8350 build.

I guess the MFGs still don't care about mATX boards for this platform? I would've rather seen an Extreme4-M with a 990.
I can't see it being a physical limitation if they can release this: ASRock > X79 Extreme4-M

Not to long ago, but ASRock has ASUS's old Fab plant to use (which made solid boards in the Past) and ASUS has outsourced to ECS to do there builds.
Scary, isn't it.

Are you referring to this?
End of times, ASUS to completely end ODM production of motherboards by Pegatron :: TweakTown USA Edition
ASUS To Completely End Manufacturing of its Motherboards, Notebooks by Pegatron | techPowerUp

I wonder if this is why my Asus laptop BIOS killed itself when I tried to change the boot order

It was that coupled with a few other issues that made me surrender and go back to Intel Branded Foxconn boards.
