ASUS introduced many new Intel Core parent boards for the 13th generation, including RoG Maximus Z790 Extrame, ROG Maximus Z790 Hero, ROG Strix Z790-E Gaming WiFi, ROG Strix Z790-F Gaming WiFi, ROG Strix Z790-A Gaming WiFi D4 and ROG Strix Z790-I Gaming WiFi.
The main features of ROG Maximus Z790 Extrame are: an enhanced 25-phase VRM subsystem with 24+1 and up to 105 A supported phases; two network adapters of 2.5 and 10 Gbit/s; support of up to five hard NVMe storage units, including one PCIe 5.0 and three PCIe 4.0; and an integrated 2-inch OLED screen. A pair of M.2 PCIe 4.0 slots is offered as part of the ROG DIMM M.2 expansion map. The plate supports the memory of the DDR5 standard and uses the PCIe 5.0 x16. The plate uses the E-ATX form factor. In addition, the new is equipped with RGB lighting, allows up to eight cooling fans to be connected and supports the Wi-Fi 6E wireless standard.
Among the benefits of the ROG Maximus Z790 Hero model are a new generation audio code with ESS ES9218 for frontal audio distribution; a 21-phase VRM subsystem; two PCIe 5.0 x16 slots; and an additional ROG Hyper M.2 expansion map, which allows the installation of one additional PCIE 5.0 and PCIE 4.0 solid storage device.
The ROG Strix Z790-E Gaming WiFi and ROG Strix Z790-F Gaming WiFi models are very similar. The first offers a slightly richer equipment. Both fees were paid in one PCIe 5.0 M.2 and PCIe 5.0 x16. The new ones include 2.5-hygabit network adapters, Wi-Fi 6E support, as well as an audio code of Realtek ALC 4080 with SV3H712.
For the ROG Strix Z790-A Gaming WiFi D4 model, it is also stated that there is a PCIe 5.0 x16 slot. In addition, M.2 PCIE 4.0 has been paid several times for solid storage. However, unlike the other new ones presented, this model works with the operational memory of the DDR4 standard.
The ROG Strix Z790-I Gaming WiFi is a form-factor for Mini-ITX. The new one is supported by the DDR5 memory. It also indicates the M.2 PCIe 5.0 interface for solid storage devices and PCIe 5.0 x16 for video cards. They divide the PCIE common lines among themselves.
