The TUF Gaming Alliance is a collaboration spearheaded by ASUS to produce a family of hardware with a common visual theme and exceptional quality and durability. The TUF Gaming aesthetic is typified with neutral blacks and grays with yellow accents for flavor, offering peace of mind to those looking for compatibility and stability along with a perfectly matched theme. ASUS TUF Gaming motherboards focus on balancing a rich feature set with a reasonable price tag.

On our test bench today is one of ASUS ROG’s enthusiast models designed for Intel’s Rocket Lake processors. The ASUS ROG Maximus XIII Hero brings plenty of premium controllers and connectivity to the table including dual 2.5 GbE, dual Thunderbolt 4 Type-C, Wi-Fi 6E, four M.2 slots, and a robust 14-phase power delivery capable of pushing Rocket Lake above its capabilities. We have put the Z590 Hero through its paces to see if it is the champion model in the sub $500 Z590 market.

To come back to the model to which we are going to devote this article, the ROG Strix Z590-E, it is currently available at 399 euros at LDLC while the Hero version is available for 512 euros and the APEX version at 549 euros. We can therefore consider that this Strix Z590-E represents entry level in the “Republic of Gamers ” series even if my “F” version is still 50 euros cheaper by ignoring certain options such as the led debug screen . On the other hand, by looking a little, it is available at 329 euros at Alternate and there, it is a very interesting price!

Two premium motherboards sit atop Asus’ Z590 product stack, and we’ll be looking at both in depth below: the ROG Maximus XIII Extreme and its liquid-cooled big brother, the Extreme Glacial. Priced at $899 and $1499.99 respectively, these boards are undoubtedly tough on your wallet, but they offer some of the best hardware and one of the most comprehensive feature sets around. This includes incredibly robust power delivery, a whopping five M.2 sockets, dual Thunderbolt 4/Type-C ports, watercooling monitoring capabilities, premium audio, enough buttons and switches to keep the most skilled overclocker busy, and of course a high-end appearance that looks great with most build themes.

Dot Esports’ Best 5 Z490 Motherboards

Some Z490 motherboards are designed for more general use, while others are specifically for gaming. Gaming motherboards boast higher performance than regular motherboards, with enough power to run the most demanding processors. Most Z490 gaming motherboards have high RAM capacity and several M.2 and PCIe slots to add NVMe drives and graphics cards. High-end Z490 motherboards even have built-in wireless adapters with up-to-date Wi-Fi 6 capability and optical ports for sound.

ASUS ROG Z590 Motherboard Round-Up – KitGuru

The ROG STRIX Z590-E Gaming WiFi is the one board in particular that I liked from this round-up. The overall hardware choices are sensible, the design is attractive yet functional, and there are quality innovation touches such as the tool-less M.2 retention clip.

I feel like the downgraded power delivery solution and overclocking features versus the Hero are a non-issue to most users. And the lack of TB4 will likely be irrelevant to many non-productivity buyers. The bigger positive is the price reduction of around £120 versus the Hero while ASUS is still offering a quality board overall.

ASUS PRIME H570-PLUS – GreenTech_Reviews

The Intel H570 chipset differs from the Z590 quite strongly – it has fewer PCIe lanes, fewer USB ports of the standards 3.2 Gen1x1 (5 Gb / s), 3.2 Gen2x1 (10 Gb / s) and 3.2 Gen2x2 (20 Gb / s), as well as the main PCIe The x16 slot can only function in the x16 mode. In addition, processor overclocking is not supported (only within the framework of Turbo Boost technologies), but this cannot be said about RAM – with the 500 series of chipsets (more precisely, on the B560, H570 and Z590) Intel allows it to be overclocked. We are holding an inexpensive ATX motherboard based on the Intel H570 chipset.

ASUS ProArt B550-CREATOR – GreenTech_Reviews

ASUS ProArt B550-Creator is the second representative of the ProArt series among motherboards. The first one appeared last year and was designed to use 10th generation Intel Core processors (and already supports 11th generation). If in the case of Intel, the manufacturer made some compromises, but the heroine of this material uses the functionality of the processor and chipset to the maximum. Yes, this is an “average” AMD B550 chipset, but there are plenty of slots, ports and connectors to build a high-performance workstation for almost any task that does not require a lot of processor configuration. What came of this and are there any restrictions – we read right now.
