The NDA being finished since yesterday 18h, we continue the presentation of the Z690 cards in our possession. After the ROG Z690 APEX, it’s the turn of the ROG Maximus Z690 EXTREME. The EXTREME model could be compared to a technology showcase for the Asus brand. The idea is to offer with this model, all that is done best. For example, it benefits from almost all the tools d’overclocking from APEX. The power supply stage is also designed to accommodate the high-end Alder Lake. Finally, its design emphasizes cooling with its imposing armor. Note also that the ROG Maximus Z690 (EXTREME) Glacial shares the same PCB but will benefit from a waterblock responsible for cooling the processor, the power supply stages as well as the chipset !
Without further ado, let’s start the hostilities directly with this ROG Maximus Z690 EXTREME. A special thank you to Asus France for making these two motherboards available.
