The Evolutionary Formula

Follow the evolution of Maximus Formula from inception, all the way to the latest incarnation.

2008

ROG MAXIMUS FORMULA

The first Maximus Formula motherboard was launched in 2008. In its first guise, the Formula followed the footsteps of the ubiquitous Maximus Extreme. Armed with robust heatsinks, essential overclocking features, and a dedicated soundcard, the Formula targeted gamers who wanted a performance edge.

2008

2009

ROG MAXIMUS II FORMULA

Aesthetics were refined for the second iteration. Grey and black anodized heatsinks replaced the copper colored arrays of the first Formula, while red accents added a dash of personality. The classic ROG logo also made its first showing.

2009

2010

ROG MAXIMUS III FORMULA

In 2010, the Formula made its third outing. A backlit ROG logo was added at mid-board, and the blue and the white slots of previous models were ditched in favor of a black and red pairing – a color theme that became iconic in the industry. Audio trends were also changing. Online play demanded focused audio, so gamers replaced their cluttered multi-channel speaker setups with headsets. The bundled SupremeFX IV soundcard evolved to follow suit, featuring a dedicated amp capable of driving a wide range of cans.

2010

2012

ROG MAXIMUS V FORMULA

With Intel releasing chipsets back to back, development timeframes were too short for an IV Formula. However, the path was clear for a dramatic comeback in 2012. Water cooling was growing in popularity, and enthusiasts were starting to favor clean looking builds. The Maximus V Formula was equipped with a hybrid design VRM heatsink cooled with air or water. And to save slot space, the dedicated soundcard of previous models was replaced with a radically redesigned onboard audio solution that set new performance standards.

2012

2013

ROG MAXIMUS VI FORMULA

Six generations in, the Formula raised the bar on multiple fronts. ROG armor was added to elevate builds to showcase standards, while the rear of the board was structurally reinforced by a steel backplate. CrossChill hybrid cooling adopted G1/4” threads to accommodate the latest water-cooling fittings. And onboard audio took another leap forwards by utilizing a dedicated DAC and a more robust headphone amplifier to deliver crystal-clear sound to hi-fidelity headphones.

2013

2014

ROG MAXIMUS VII FORMULA

Number VII continued the process of refinement. The CrossChill hybrid VRM heatsink was upgraded with a copper water channel to improve thermal transfer. Slots and ports received a simple cosmetic overhaul, utilizing color-matched levers as opposed to the white latches of previous models.

2014

2015

ROG MAXIMUS VIII FORMULA

RGB lighting and a monochromatic theme made its way to the Maximus VIII Formula, allowing enthusiasts to tastefully accent their build with color. For the first time, we teamed up with water cooling specialists at EK, who helped enhance the Formula’s hybrid water block to offer even better performance.

2015

2016

ROG MAXIMUS IX FORMULA

The ninth incarnation focused on attention to detail. We pioneered the integrated I/O shield to make DIY more convenient and to ensure a snug fit for all chassis. Unlike iteration VIII, the Maximus IX Formula featured extra RGB lighting zones for the onboard power buttons and the PCIe slot latches, adding a sense of balance to the aesthetics.

2016

2017

ROG MAXIMUS X FORMULA

A decade of refinement brings us to the Maximus X Formula. Painstakingly crafted for showcase builds, and carefully enhanced to deliver optimal performance, the latest incarnation strikes the perfect balance between function and form.
