ASUS ROG Maximus XII Formula

ASUS has also announced it will be releasing its ROG Maximus XII Formula, but not announced a full breakdown of what it will include. Typically famous for its inclusion of EKWB VRM MOSFET heatsinks, the Maximus XII Formula will come with a 16-phase teamed power delivery for the CPU, which is using 60 A power stages. It will also feature EK Crosschill III Hybrid heatsinks, with a large PCIe slot cover and rear panel cover with integrated RGB LEDs.

The ASUS ROG Maximus XII Formula will come with a sleek black and silver aesthetic, which is largely dominated by its PCIe slot area armor, with plenty of features on-board. It has three full-length PCIe 3.0 slots which run at x16, x8/x8, and x8/x8/+4, with a single PCIe 3.0 x1 slot. For storage is three PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 slots, each with its own individual heatsink, and six SATA ports with support for RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 arrays.

Included is an overclocker's toolkit which consists of a reset and power button, with a 2-digit Debug LED. Looking at the memory support, it will feature four memory slots with support for up to DDR4-4700, with a total capacity of up to 128 GB.

For connectivity, the ASUS ROG Maximus XII Formula will include Thunderbolt 3 support via an internal TB header and has a solid networking setup. It includes an Aquantia AQC107 10 G Ethernet controller, with an additional Intel I225-V 2.5 G controller for dual LAN. Also present is an Intel AX201 Wi-Fi 6 wireless interface with support for BT 5.1 devices. Powering the boards onboard audio is a SupremeFX S1220 HD audio codec.

While it isn't clear when the ASUS ROG Maximus XII Formula is going to be released, ASUS has set an MSRP of $500 which given its previous premium models, is quite a fair price all things considered; with what we know so far.

This page will be updated when more information becomes available to us.

    I really hate when new articles are inserted below the lead spot because it's hit or miss if I ever notice them. I missed this one during several visits to the site and only found it when Google suggested it in response to a search I made. Reply

    I basically make about $12,000-$18,000 a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it . This is what I’ve been doing old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 10-13 hours a week from home… ­w­w­w.i­Ⅽ­a­s­h­6­8.Ⅽ­o­m­ Reply

    This must have taken some writing. Kudos to the author(s). A good one stop article for anybody planning on going the Intel route. Intel seem to be adept at packaging old milk (not wine) in a new bottle. At least increase the number of PCIe lanes... Reply

    I recommend using the RSS feed, then you get everything and you get it chronologically. Reply

    +1 on RSS!

    The "magazine layout" that plagues many sites and makes it impossible to distinguish between old articles, new articles and commercials can thankfully still be avoided through RSS.

    Funny that ASRock are the only manufacturers to have a mATX X570 motherboard for AMD's platform, yet for Intel they're the only one's NOT to have a mATX motherboard. Reply

    You mean they are relevant again, because they have fixed their stereotypical USB issues? Reply

    So in other words a re-spin of previous chipset with little to no real useful extra features but will require a new board. Classic intel. This is one of many reasons my last system was Intel and my new system is AMD now.

    Unless you are a intel fanboy why keep supporting this?

    New networking controllers, support for PCIe 4 CPUs (RKL-S that will be released in future).
    Some boards also have USB Gen 2x2 support with external ASMedia controller. I know no any X570 board with USB Gen 2x2 support. Only Gen 2x1.
