For many years, Intel’s Gigabit Ethernet chips have been the backbone of all ROG, and occasionally ASUS and TUF motherboards. The reason being is that it constantly showed better performance in our testing, which reviewers confirmed in their own testing too.
That performance is by no means taken for granted. Each generation the ROG team undertakes extensive benchmarks (that are user repeatable) to understand which chip is better for its audience. After all, you buy a premium brand and expect nothing less. Just because a product throws ‘gaming’ into the name, are they actually better for it? Not necessarily, which is why things should be tested and benchmarked.
This is the foundation all ROG hardware: only when its worth is proven does it get a space in the arsenal!
M.2 (and SATA Express) are the future for SSDs, however there are different grades of SSD in terms of length and performance that need to be noted before buying. Certain keying on the M.2 SSD can help prevent mis-matching, but some motherboards only accept up to certain sized devices. Our guide will help you buy the right M.2 SSD for your existing Maximus or future ROG motherboard!
