The Versatile LGA 1700 Socket

The LGA 1700 socket is a boon for PC enthusiasts as it accommodates both 12th and 13th-generation Intel Core processors, giving users an array of options for building or upgrading their PCs. They support the upcoming 14th Gen processors. A simple BIOS update ensures full compatibility, offering users a wealth of possibilities when planning a new build or an upgrade.

Embracing WiFi 7: A Game-Changer

The standout feature of these new ROG Z790 motherboards is the inclusion of Intel WiFi 7. This guarantees users can maximize the latest wireless standard when paired with a WiFi 7 router. Then there is the ASUS WiFi Q-Antenna.

It is developed by ASUS and comes with a new hardware design, optimizing signal throughput for the 5 GHz and 6 GHz bands. ASUS Armoury Crate app provides users with tools to perfect the antenna’s positioning, optimizing signal quality and range.

Mastering Memory Performance

ASUS elevates memory optimization with DIMM Flex. Like CPUs and GPUs, DDR5 memory modules generate heat, especially when overclocked. DIMM Flex dynamically adjusts memory controller behavior based on real-time temperature data, optimizing memory performance while ensuring system stability.

In testing, it boosted the average FPS by 16% compared to basic XMP settings in Metro Exodus. AEMP II (ASUS Exclusive Memory Profiles II) offers hassle-free memory optimization with flexibility, even for a four-DIMM DDR5 RAM configuration with mixed brands and dies.

A User-Friendly Approach

ASUS has simplified PC building and upgrading with ingenious Q-Design innovations. The PCIe Slot Q-Release button allows users to release their graphics card with a single press. Memory module installation is simplified with the single-sided Q-DIMM latching design.

A Q-LED indicator promptly signals if a memory module isn’t seated correctly. The M.2 Q-Latch ensures users will never have to deal with tiny, easily lost M.2 screws again.

A Glimpse at the ROG Maximus Z790 Formula

The ROG Maximus Z790 Formula is a marvel for custom liquid cooling loops and sleek white-themed PCs. Its pristine white surfaces and integrated I/O shroud are accentuated by a customizable 2-inch OLED display on the heatsink.
