ASUS ROG MAXIMUS is a premium series of motherboards that is released for enthusiasts that want the best of the best as the motherboards come with all the bells and whistles that one can ask for. Sources have reported that the ASUS ROG MAXIMUS is going to be released for the upcoming Z390 chipset, that is going to be released before the end of the year.
The ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XI series is going to be coming out and it seems that there won’t be a single motherboard but multiple options for enthusiasts to choose from. Some of the upcoming ASUS ROG MAXIMUS boards are as follows:
- ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XI CODE
- ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XI EXTREME
- ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XI FORMULA
- ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XI HERO
Sources have confirmed that we won’t only be getting ROG MAXIMUS motherboards but STRIX series motherboards as well. Some names are as follows:
- ASUS ROG STRIX Z390 -E GAMING
- ASUS ROG STRIX Z390-F GAMING
- ASUS ROG STRIX Z390-H GAMING
- ASUS ROG STRIX Z390-I GAMING
Asus has been in the business for a long time now and has probably the best motherboards that you can buy. While we do not know much about the Z390 series, the chipset will feature additional PCIe lanes and according to sources, the chipset will also support the 8 core Intel CPUs that are going to be launched before the end of the year.
While this will be the first time that we see such a high core count in the mainstream Intel series of CPUs, some would say that Intel is too late to the game. AMD has been selling 8 core CPUs for more than a year and we just got the 2000 series CPUs that had refreshed versions of those 8 core CPUs. While there will be people that will only buy Intel but it is logical to think that people that wanted more cores and threads have already shifted to AMD Ryzen.
AMD Ryzen offers a lot of value for money keeping in mind the number of cores and threads that you get for your money. Intel will have to introduce some major performance benefits, which might be difficult to pull off keeping in mind the delay in the 10nm process.
