Mother for all motherboards / z790 Maximus Extreme #asus #Rog

Antel strikes again! | Intel 13900K 🔥

This motherboard is amazing! Everything you imagine a motherboard can have, this one has and it's hard to find a fault even though we tried really hard. Simply put, ASUS has set high standards with the Maximus series, and nothing is different with the new Extreme model, which represents the current flagship when we talk about Intel chipset-based motherboards.

Ono što je meni bilo interesantno ovde je da Z790 Maximus Extreme npr podiže kvalitet PCIe konekcija za M.2 slotove gde se prešlo sa nekih 3.0 slotova na apsolutno sve 4.0 slotove
