About the ASUS ROG Maximus XIII Apex Motherboard

ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XIII APEX Box View

The Apex of Performance

For generations, streamlined layouts that reduce latency and increase bandwidth have enabled ROG Apex series motherboards to dominate numerous world records. The ASUS ROG Maximus XIII Apex continues that legacy by amping power delivery and adding overclocking enhancements for 11th Generation Intel Core processors. Those upgrades are fused with the latest connectivity options to boost the meta and bring the board’s racetrack performance to daily rigs.

Comprehensive Cooling

A high-end battle station needs robust cooling to deliver peak performance. ROG Maximus XIII Hero employs an enlarged cooling array for the VRM and chipset, plus four M.2 sinks teamed with backplate blocks to wick heat away from critical components. That rugged foundation is backed by complimentary headers for fans, AIOs and liquid loops, paired with flexible control options that allow you to keep thermals in check at all times.

Maximum Power Delivery

ROG Maximus XIII Apex makes overclocking accessible to both beginners and seasoned enthusiasts alike. Its intelligent power solution caters to the demands of the latest Intel processors, while comprehensive controls give you the tools you need to ramp up performance.

The VRM features 18 power stages, each rated to handle 90 amps. Each Power stage is accompanied by a high-permeability alloy-core choke rated to handle 45 amps.

Input and output filtering is provided by solid-polymer capacitors rated to last thousands of hours at high operating temperatures.

Two ProCool II Power Connectors ensure a snug and reliable connection to the EPS 12V Power Lines.

Intel Wi-Fi 6E (GIG+)

Onboard WiFi 6E technology takes advantage of the newly available radio spectrum in the 6 GHz band, providing up to three times the bandwidth of the 5 GHz band and up to seven 160 MHz bands to deliver ultrafast wireless networking speeds along with improved capacity and better performance in dense wireless environments.

Intel 2.5 GB Ethernet

Onboard 2.5 Gb Ethernet gives your wired connection a boost, with up to a 2.5X improvement over standard Ethernet connections for faster file transfers, smoother lag-free gaming and high-res video streaming.

PCIE 4.0 READY

The ROG Maximus XIII is equipped with four onboard m.2 slots, with two offering the latest PCIe 4.0 support for the latest GPUs and High-Speed SSDs.

ROG Maximus XIII Apex is equipped with four onboard M.2 slots, with two offering PCIe 4.0 support for the latest GPUs and high-speed SSDs. To cope with the heat generated by high-performance M.2 SSDs, each drive is protected by a dedicated M.2 heatsink and an embedded backplate.

ROG DIMM.2

The ROG DIMM.2 module is an innovative expansion card that allows two M.2 drives to be connected via a DDR4 interface. You can then add metal heatsinks, helping to control thermals for maximum performance while elevating the aesthetics.

Enhanced with AI

Intelligent software solutions help ensure that your system performs at its best. The latest ASUS AI-powered enhancements span four pillars of performance, including overclocking, cooling, networking and onboard audio, making advanced tweaks and optimisation accessible to new recruits and savvy PC DIY veterans alike.

AI Overclocking

Tuning is now faster and smarter than ever before. ASUS AI Overclocking profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration and push each system to its limits.

AI Cooling

Balance the thermals and acoustics of any build with a single click. A proprietary ASUS algorithm reduces unnecessary system noise by monitoring CPU temperatures and dynamically adjusting fans to optimal speeds.

AI Networking

The GameFirst VI utility optimises networking performance by allocating bandwidth in real-time based on application usage scenarios and corresponding learning algorithms.

Two-Way AI Noise Cancellation

This utility leverages a massive deep-learning database to reduce over 500 million types of background noise from incoming or outgoing audio, helping ensure crystal-clear communication in games or calls.
