  • ROG MAXIMUS XII EXTREME 再次定義 Z490 的極限,強大的供電設計,可讓 10 核心 i9-10900K 全核超頻至 5.2GHz 起,其超規格的用料也比 Apex 再高一階,這代除了 CPU 效能強悍,記憶體超頻性能也將更佳出色。 而預設下 K 系列處理器已有較高的 All Core Turbo 設定,玩家可多加利用 By Core Usage 設定,調到更好的全核效能與單核高時脈,或者使用更簡易的 AI Optimizad 達到更高的超頻時脈設定;此外,想要獲得完整效能也記得要關閉功耗限制,才能感受到完整的 10 代效能。 論規格 EXTREME 給了玩家所需的各種功能,雙 PCIe x16、4 M.2、8 SATA,以及 10GbE + 2.5GbE 與 Wi-Fi6,還有 Thunderbolt 3 與 USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 等高規格,一張攻頂的極致主機板。
