This is where the ASUS ROG X570 Crosshair VIII Extreme comes into play. It’s in the region of $800, which is a considerable amount for a motherboard, but supports AMD Ryzen processors and has a host of features you won’t find on less-capable boards. We’re going to take a look at this flagship X570 board from ASUS and see whether it’s worthy of a spot in your next AMD PC build.

The TUF boards used to be an upper-midrange line, with robust power delivery, protective armor and other features that made them pricier than most mid-range and budget offerings. But for the last couple of generations, Asus has let the TUF line lighten up a bit, repositioning the sub-brand as a more budget-focused offering for gamers, behind the Strix and ROG models. The appearance of these boards has also changed over the years, with the TUF Gaming Z590-Plus WIFI now fitting in with most build themes.

ASUS ProArt X570-CREATOR WIFI – GreenTech_Reviews

ASUS ProArt X570-Creator WiFi is the third Creator board aimed at media content developers who are satisfied with the existing AMD AM4 processors, but need a full range of high-speed ports and interfaces. Earlier, we studied options based on Intel Z490 and AMD B550 chipsets, and this time we have a model based on AMD’s flagship chipset – X570. The motherboard also features a completely passive mode of operation, the most powerful power subsystem, extended support and the ability to work in 24/7 mode.

ASUS ProArt B550-CREATOR – Tom’s Hardware

The Asus ProArt B550 Creator is, as the name implies, designed with the content creator in mind. It sports dual Thunderbolt 4 ports (still a rarity among AMD boards), DisplayPort input, dual 2.5 GbE, as well a VRM capable of supporting our Ryzen 9 5950X CPU at stock and while overclocked. While looks aren’t at the top of the list, the board’s black color and gold accents fit in with most build themes, but aren’t likely a focal point considering the lack of RGB lighting.

In E-ATX format , this card is therefore intended to be the ASUS flagship on the AMD X570 chipset based on the AMD AM4 socket . Indeed, as its name suggests, the EXTREME series are still the best equipped cards. Big good point which is not all new either, we find a 2-inch OLED screen on which we can display various information. Here we will therefore have no less than five slots for SSD in M.2 format PCIe 4.0 compatible including the ROG DIMM.2 , two USB 3.2 Gen 2 × 2 headers for the front panel and two Thunderblot 4 ports operating at 40 Gbps. For the network part, we will have a 10 Gigabit Ethernet port via a Marvell AQtion controller and a second 2.5 Gigabit port. Of course, WiFi 6E is part of the game.

To start, the Z590 Wi-Fi Gundam Edition isn’t its own ground-up solution; it’s actually the TUF Z590 Plus-Wi-Fi with the RX-78-2 white livery. This means we have a relatively solid platform underneath that supports both 10th and 11th Gen CPUs and offers 128GB of memory capacity with speeds up to 5133MHz.

Storage support includes both SATA 6GB/s with six ports and M.2 with two Ultra (Gen3) and one Hyper(Gen4) slot. Networking gives the Intel i225v 2.5Gbe chipset paired with Intel AX201 WiFi6. Audio is the upgraded Realtek ALC S1200A with a full complement of 3.5mm Audio jacks along with optical.

This benchmark is based on the classic ROG MAXIMUS XIII Extreme. With one difference, the presence of a monoblock bundle. This one also bears the reference EK-Quantum Momentum ROG Maximus XIII Extreme Glacial D-RGB Plexi . We are on a motherboard with an LGA1200 socket on the Intel Z590 chipset . It is therefore able to accommodate Intel Core processors such as the Rocket Lake-S: i9-11900K and the i5-11600K that we tested as well as 10th generation CPUs such as the i9-10900K or the i5-10600K . It accepts DDR4 memory up to a frequency of 5333 MHz (OC) for a total capacity of 128 GB on four slots. Good point, the rear connection offers two Thunderbolt 4 ports.

Back in the day, TUF stood for ‘The Ultimate Force’ and was one the designation for ASUS’s robust series of motherboards. It spawned the Sabertooth series, clad in armor, looking clean, and offering superb value to users. ASUS decided to rebrand its TUF series back in 2017 to a more gamer-friendly brand, which is now known today as TUF Gaming. This series is designed to provide gamers with all the tools it needs to benefit from the performance. Still, ultimately, it sits as its entry-level to mid-range opener behind its core Republic of Gamers (ROG) models, with Strix sitting in the middle.

ASUS ROG Maximus XIII Extreme is the flagship of the Maximus XIII series among, so to speak, classic motherboards. There is also a version of Glacial , which differs not only in design (it is made in white), but in the cooling system – its design uses a full-coverage water block, a cooling processor, its power subsystem, a network controller and an SSD-drive, as well as a chipset. And from its predecessor in the face of ROG Maximus XII Extreme, the novelty differs in general in everything, since the requirements of the 11th generation Intel Core processors are radically different from those of the 10th generation. What does the manufacturer offer us and what can be done about it? Let’s find out now!
