Intel Z790-based ASUS Lineup, Brilliant Performance, Connectivity and Aesthetics

The latest Z790 motherboards from ROG Maximus and ROG Strix take memory optimization efforts a step further with DIMM Flex. This feature dynamically adjusts memory controller behavior based on current memory temperature to optimize performance while ensuring stability. It uses real-time temperature data from a thermal sensor integrated close to the memory slots to make frequency adjustments. These new boards also features Intel WiFi 7, empowering users to harness the full potential of the latest wireless standard when paired with a WiFi 7 router.

Water-cooled excellence: the ROG Maximus Z790 Formula

Users plotting a build with a custom liquid cooling loop or considering assembling a crew of white-themed components for their next PC should take a look at the ROG Maximus Z790 Formula. Pristine white surfaces across its heatsinks and integrated I/O shroud give it a standout look that is accented by the customizable 2-inch OLED display built into the heatsink for the central M.2 slot. The new all-copper HybridChill VRM block offers standout passive cooling, and it is easy to connect to a custom loop for even more cooling power. This board also includes a pair of Thunderbolt™ 4 ports and a fleet of high-speed USB ports on the rear panel. WiFi 7 and a 5 Gbps Ethernet port give users rock-solid, high-bandwidth networking

Memory overclocking powerhouse: the ROG Maximus Z790 Apex Encore

When professional overclockers look for a motherboard ready to provide a platform for record-breaking memory performance, they often turn first to the ROG Maximus Apex motherboards. This motherboard’s robust power solution provides a high-end platform for exceptional performance. Raw power enters the board through 8+8 ProCool II power connectors and its 24-phase Vcore and 2-phase VCCAUX teamed power stages rated for up to 105 amps deliver stable power to the CPU, and beefy VRM heatsinks keep the circuitry cool under pressure. The included ROG DDR5 Fan Kit lets users keep temperatures on their memory modules low with a high-performance fan directing cooling air across the memory slots. This cooling solution solidifies DDR5 stability to unleash memory overclocking — with the right kit, speeds of 8400+ MT/s are possible.

The new standard for gaming: the ROG Strix Z790-E Gaming WiFi II

ROG Strix motherboards take the basic DNA of the ROG Maximus series and distill it into more attainable designs that provide exceptional gaming performance and outspoken style. The highest-performance model in the lineup is the ROG Strix Z790-E Gaming WiFi II. With its PCIe 5.0 x16 slot and onboard PCIe 5.0 M.2 slot, this is the ROG Strix motherboard to get if users have a hankering for the best graphics cards and SSDs of today and tomorrow. It offers a robust power solution primed for overclocking, WiFi 7, and a connector ready to help users set up a high-speed front-panel USB Type-C® port with 30 W Power Delivery fast charging.

A potent blend of style and performance: the ROG Strix Z790-F Gaming WiFi II

In many ways, the ROG Strix Z790-F Gaming WiFi II is quite similar to its elder brother. It boasts a next-gen PCIe 5.0 x16 slot, WiFi 7, a premium ROG SupremeFX audio solution and five total onboard M.2 slots. Some sensible subtractions from the spec sheet differentiate this motherboard from the ROG Strix Z790-E Gaming WiFi II: its M.2 slots are all wired for PCIe 4.0 speeds, its VRM does not have quite as many power stages, and it does not offer as many 10 Gbps USB ports on its rear panel. However, its lower price point should make it a compelling option for PC builders for whom those features are tempting luxuries but not strict necessities.
