ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XIII HERO – GinjFo

Its price positioning is consistent with the key to a leading mechanism in order to optimize its configuration down to the smallest detail. Her dress is worked through a solid passive cooling. It attacks the Z590 chipset, VRMs or even various M.2 SSDs. We also find a nicely distributed RGB and a racy overall look.

In use, the performance is there with a full UEFI BIOS. Asus also offers several “in-house” technologies to simplify its configuration and the implementation of optimization. For example, AI Overclocking proposes to automatically and intelligently boost the processor through an analysis of various parameters including the performance of the processor cooling system.

ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XIII EXTREME GLACIAL – HKEPC

ROG Maximus XIII Extreme Glacial water-cooled board is on the scene. The hardware specifications are exactly the same as those of Extreme. It also has the best peripheral functions and connectivity. It has also added the ROG Ultrablock full-covered water-cooling in cooperation with EKWB, which can simultaneously power the CPU and VRM. The PCH chip, 10G Ethernet chip, and M.2 SSD provide heat dissipation. The system can maintain low temperature operation even under high load. For players who like self-assembled water cooling and pursue the ultimate performance, this motherboard is absolutely impeccable.

ASUS ROG STRIX X570-E GAMING – Windows Central

Because this motherboard makes use of AMD’s X570 chipset, it comes with two PCIe 4.0 x4-capable M.2 slots, as well as eight rear USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports. ASUS also led the way by including a Realtek RTL8125 LAN controller, which unlocks speeds of up to 2.5Gbps, if you don’t want to use the included Wi-Fi 6 AX200 from Intel. But just how good is this “gaming” motherboard for AMD PC builds, and is it worth the $300 asking price?

ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XIII APEX – GreenTech_Reviews

Our heroine is strikingly different from the previous Maximus XII Apex – the design, set and location of certain interfaces, buttons and everything else have been changed. We can safely say that we have a completely new product in front of us, and not just a modified board. Yes, the processor socket has remained the same, but the new 11th generation processors themselves impose completely different requirements not only on the power supply of the board, but must also provide all the new functionality inherent in them.

ASUS TUF GAMING B560-PLUS WIFI – eTeknix

The B560 is around £100 cheaper at the time of review, so while it may not have all the features found on the Z590, it will be nice to see how the performance stacks up from a users point of view. One of the main differences is going to be that the B560 comes with an 8+1 Power Phase design, whereas the Z590 came with a 14+2 design. One of the other things I have noticed is that the B560 model comes with eight USB ports on the rear IO when the Z590 only has seven. One thing is for sure, they definitely have a good few differences despite all the similarities they have.

ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XIII EXTREME GLACIAL – GreenTech_Reviews

ASUS ROG Maximus XIII Extreme Glacial is the flagship of the Maximus XIII series of motherboards, which differs from the “simple” Extreme version by the presence of a water block in the package. Yes, not a simple water block, but a monoblock – it removes heat not only from the processor, but also from its power subsystem, as well as the M.2 chipset drive. In addition, the boards differ in appearance and to some extent in the component base and placement of some elements.

ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XIII HERO – Pokde

ASUS offers quite significant improvements with the ROG Maximus XIII Hero to justify the significant price increase over its predecessor. The beefier VRMs, increased number of high speed ports and Thunderbolt 4 are definitely worth the extra cost if you can utilize them. However it does definitely jack up the entry point into the Republic of Gamers, which was already quite high previously.

ASUS TUF GAMING Z590-PLUS WIFI – PC Gamer

The TUF Z590 Plus features a subtle design with a particularly nice white font. You get a couple of little splashes of RGB around the right side. It’s a nice look. There are three M.2 slots with the topmost one supporting PCIe 4.0. The two at the bottom are contained under a single heatsink. Also note the vertical SATA ports that sticklers for cable management might find objectionable. There are a further two regular horizontal ports adjacent to the heatsink.  You get six fan headers and two addressable RGB headers too.
