Gamers can now use DDR5 memory modules and PCIe® 5.0 supported devices for the first time. Completely redesigned Intel® Core™ processors are configurable with 16 cores and 24 threads. To make these industry-leading new technologies ready for users, ROG Maximus Z690 Extreme, Extreme Glacial, Apex and other Z690 ASUS motherboards are equipped with cutting-edge power delivery features that respond instantly to voltage and frequency changes brought by the Intel Alder Lake platform. These new powerful processors are aimed to operate with maximum performance and efficiency.

In addition, the Z690 ROG motherboards come with a new feature called ASUS Extended Memory Profiles (AEMP). Thanks to AEMP, the clock speeds and timings of DDR5 memory modules can be increased above their official limits with a simple adjustment in the BIOS. Thus, it is possible to take advantage of the full potential performance. This feature works by unlocking the voltage management technology called Power Management Integrated Circuit (PMIC), which was not found in previous generation DDR RAMs. ASUS has partnered with leading DDR5 manufacturers for high-speed compatibility.

As the name suggests, ROG Maximus Extreme motherboards are at the pinnacle of tech enthusiast motherboard design. The new Z690 continues this tradition.
