The ASUS "ROG MAXIMUS" series, including the top model "ROG MAXIMUS XIII EXTREME GLACIAL" of the Intel Z590 chipset announced in January this year, will be released in early April.
In the "ROG MAXIMUS" series, the power supply circuit has been strengthened to match the 11th generation Intel Core processor, and all models are equipped with a power supply circuit of 16 phases or more by Power Stage. Furthermore, parts to be mounted such as "Pro Cool II" connector that can supply server grade EPS12V power supply, "10K Japanese capacitor" that supports the temperature range of -180 to 125 ° C, and "Microfin alloy choke" that supports up to 45A. Is also solidified with high quality. In addition, the cooling mechanism has been strengthened, and the power supply circuit uses a large heat sink that is 1.7 times heavier and 1.6 times more surface area than the conventional model, and a highly conductive thermal pad with a maximum of 6.5 W. It also combines an aluminum I / O cover that also has the effect of supporting heat dissipation from the heat sink, a PCB with a 2oz copper layer, and a large-diameter heat pipe.
In addition, a memory slot connected to "Daisy Chain" that can operate high clock memory stably, a high-quality audio circuit by Realtek AL4082 + ESS SABER9018Q2C (ROG MAXIMUS XIII APEX only "SV3H712 AMP"), Wi-Fi 6E Equipped with wireless LAN and wired LAN function of 2.5 gigabit or more.
"ROG MAXIMUS XIII EXTREME GLACIAL" is a flagship model equipped with a unique mono water cooling unit that can cool the CPU, power supply circuit, 10 Gigabit LAN, M.2 SSD, and chipset together. The power circuit is 18 + 2 phase with 100A Power Stage, and the form factor is E-ATX. The main specifications are DDR4-5333 x 4 (maximum 128GB) memory slot, SATA3.0 (6Gbps) x6, M.2 x5 storage, PCI-Express4.0 (x16) x2, PCI-Express3 expansion slot. With .0 (x4) x1, the network supports 10 Gigabit LAN x1, 2.5 Gigabit LAN x1, Wi-Fi 6E, and Bluetooth 5.2.
