Intel 14th Gen CPUs are out, ASUS announced their new Intel Z790 Motherboards

Four new ROG Maximus and ROG Strix motherboards added to the Intel Z790-based ASUS lineup, offering brilliant performance, connectivity and aesthetics.

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced four new Intel® Z790 motherboards: the ROG Maximus Z790 Formula, the ROG Maximus Z790 Apex Encore, the ROG Strix Z790-E Gaming WiFi II, and the ROG Strix Z790-F Gaming WiFi II. These motherboards join the three Z790 models previously announced at Gamescom: the ROG Maximus Z790 Dark Hero, the ROG Strix Z790-A Gaming WiFi II, and the TUF Gaming Z790-Pro WiFi. All seven motherboards support 14th Gen, 13th Gen, and 12th Gen Intel® Core processors. Each motherboard includes PCIe® 5.0, DDR5 memory support, enhanced connectivity, performance tuning capabilities, efficient cooling solutions, DIY-friendly features and a host of other benefits.

Intel LGA 1700 CPU socket

12th and 13th Generation Intel Core processors slot into the LGA 1700 socket, so users have been able to build their own way with either Z690 or Z790 motherboards while taking their pick from a wide selection of CPUs. But LGA 1700’s time is not over. This socket will also be compatible with 14th Gen Intel Core processors. This means that users will have plentiful options as they plan a new build or an upgrade. They can upgrade their motherboard to take advantage of the high-performance networking, abundant connectivity and optimized power solutions of the latest ASUS Z790 motherboards. Or they can stick with their battle-tested Z690 or Z790 motherboard while they upgrade to an 14th Gen Intel processor. They only need to make sure to update their older motherboard’s BIOS for full compatibility with upcoming Intel processors. 

What's New with the refreshed ASUS ROG Z790 Motherboards

Next-level bandwidth with WiFi 7

Featuring Intel WiFi 7, these four new ROG Z790 motherboards empower users to harness the full potential of the latest wireless standard when paired with a WiFi 7 router.

DIMM Flex maximizes memory performance and stability

DIMM Flex 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. 

DIMM Flex can have a large impact on memory-sensitive applications. In Metro Exodus, ASUS found that DIMM Flex boosted average FPS by 16% compared to basic XMP enabled settings. It is very easy to set up, as well — click here to learn more about how to get started with DIMM Flex.

Easy memory optimization with AEMP II

With every generation of PC components, ASUS works to make the process of building a PC easier. The exclusive ASUS Q-Design innovations across this Z790 lineup simplify and streamline the process of building and upgrading a PC

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.

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. The original ROG Maximus Z790 Apex helped the ASUS Republic of Gamers overclocking team push an Intel CPU past the 9 GHz barrier — and now ASUS is gearing up for round two with the ROG Maximus Z790 Apex Encore.

New for the ROG Maximus Z790 Apex Encore, ASUS is introducing a new way to extract the full performance of a user’s PC hardware. 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.

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.

The New Z790 Motherboards will be available in the Philippines starting October 2023 with the following SRPs.
