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 utilising teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.

DDR5 Domination

Comprehensive memory tuning options are the cornerstone of ROG motherboards. With the ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 Extreme, you can extract all of the potential out of your DDR5 modules, regardless of if they’re from an extreme-speed kit or an entry-level set that would otherwise be locked.

PCIE 5.0

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.

Three Onboard M.2 Slots

The ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 Extreme features three onboard M.2 slots, one of which is PCIe 5.0-ready to offer blistering 16 GB/s speeds, while the others offer still-impressive 8 GB/s over PCIe 4.0 interfaces.

M.2 heatsinks

Large heatsinks and backplates of the ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 Extreme provide extensive surface area to keep mounted M.2 drives cool.

VRM heatsink

A VRM heatsink on the MOSFETs and chokes is connected to the aluminum I/O cover via an embedded heatpipe to increase mass and surface area for dissipation.

Chipset heatsink

A dedicated heatsink draws heat away from the chipset to maintain optimum operating temperature.

Two Thunderbolt 4 Type-C Ports

Each port delivers up to 40 Gbps of bidirectional bandwidth for the latest super-speed devices and drives. Both ports can be employed for up to two external 4K displays, and PCIe bandwidth extends to up to 32 Gbps.

USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 Type-C

USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 front-panel connector adds an additional lane that can boost Type-C data transfers with speeds of up to 20 Gbps. The port also features Quick Charge 4+ technology that can quickly charge devices up to 60W.

WIFI 6E

ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 Extreme’s onboard WiFi takes advantage of the 6 GHz band for lower latency in dense wireless environments and wide 160 MHz channels to speed up data transfers.

10G Ethernet

Meeting the demands of power users and content creators, onboard Marvell AQtion 10 Gbps Ethernet provides a new level of home networking. With virtually boundless throughput, file transfers and system backups are faster than ever before.

ROG SupremeFX

ROG SupremeFX audio technology delivers an exceptional 113 dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection to provide exceptional recording quality. There’s also a low-dropout regulator for cleaner power delivery to the SupremeFX ALC4082 codec, and an integrated ESS ES9218 QUAD DAC capable of reaching -115dB THD+N for superior front-panel output. The combined solution allows for end-to-end 32-bit 384 kHz resolution playback that conveys all the subtlety and nuances of each audio track.
