Teamed Power Architecture

Today’s CPU architectures place incredible demands on motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power-saving modes, going from lower-power mode to full load in an instant. The latest ROG VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.

DDR5 Domination

ROG has a long legacy of flexing the fastest memory performance, and DDR5 is no outlier. Thanks to improved signal routing, now enthusiast-grade kits have been driven as far as 8 GT/s on the ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 Apex, and who knows how far future DIMMs can go? Seasoned veterans can test their mettle by tinkering with the extensive array of tuning options in the UEFI.

PCIE 5.0

Fully embracing the new standard, the ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 Apex offers abundant Gen 5 support to give unfettered bandwidth to the fastest SSDs and graphics cards available. Both of the x16 expansion slots have the PCIe 5.0 treatment to offer incredible speeds up to 64 GB/s for compatible devices. To bear the brunt of massive graphics cards, they are also protected with SafeSlot retention brackets, and the top slot can be released easily thanks to the Q-Release button.

Onboard M.2 Slots

Two onboard PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots with heatsinks keep high-performance storage cool. The bundled ROG PCIe 5.0 M.2 Card offers access to a Gen 5-ready slot and robust heatsink coverage.

M.2 heatsinks

Both onboard M.2 slots are thoroughly cooled with heatsinks and backplates for maximum cooling performance.

VRM heatsink

VRM heatsinks on the MOSFETs and chokes are connected by an embedded heatpipe to increase mass and surface area for dissipation.

PCIe 5.0 M.2 card heatsink

The bundled PCIe 5.0 M.2 card wraps its slot in a massive heatsink to ensure adequate cooling for the most performant drives.

USB 3.2 Gen 2×2

ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 Apex comes loaded with two USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 Type-C connectors for speedy data transfers up to 20 Gbps. One is a port on the rear I/O; the other can be attached to the chassis front panel and it also features Quick Charge 4+ technology to quickly charge devices at up to 60W.
