As the vast array of mainboards arrive in the market, one thing is for sure: There will be no shortage of choice with Intel’s Haswell technology. A while back, KitGuru cameras were invited into the heart of Asus’ HQ to find out more about the world’s number one mainboard manufacturer’s upcoming designs. We’re starting at the top with the Asus Maximus VI – Extreme version.
While the videos we have for you on the Sabertooth, Pro, A and C variants on the Z87 mainboard are interesting, we decided to kick off with the all singing, all dancing Maximus VI.
As the name suggests, this is the 6th board to carry the name and it certainly aims to be a lot more advanced than its predecessors.
Enough with the intro, here’s the mainboard itself – presented by an Asus engineer- in detail:-
KitGuru says: It’s an impressive box with plenty to get excited about. From the early reviews on KitGuru and elsewhere, it’s clear that getting the best from Haswell needs a level of fine tuning that is degrees above what was needed with Sandy Bridge etc. With it’s Maximus VI Extreme, Asus is taking no chances or prisoners.
