    • Here, as with the processors, we're looking at a refresh of the Z790 chipset, where brands have updated some of their motherboards to add support for Wi-Fi 7. For today's test, we received a copy of the ROG Maximus Z790 APEX Encore. This is the refresh, version 2, or replacement for the ROG Maximus Z790 APEX.

    • As we have used the Z790 Apex for a lot of our DDR5 memory tests, we’re really looking forward to seeing what kind of improvement we can see with this board, especially with the new 14th-gen Intel Core processors which we assume to have better memory controller this time.

    • ROG Maximus Z790 Apex Encore is the ultimate motherboard for those who want the absolute maximum of everything possible from the LGA 1700 platform right here and now, where the overclocking skills and the quality of the processors with RAM will be the limiting factors.


      UKRAINE 12/22/2023
    • Lab members took a ROG Maximus Z790 Apex Encore motherboard and an Intel Core i9 14900KF cooled with liquid helium. The result was 9,044 MHz, which means that the magic 9 GHz limit has fallen. The Swedish overclocker with the nickname elmor took care of the success.


      CZECH REPUBLIC 10/17/2023
  • Interestingly, with the record, the Asus team pushed harder with the 14900KF and they did indeed hit 9.1GHz, but only for a very short time before the system locked up. The computer was not stable enough at this speed to actually verify the overclocking, but 9.1GHz was technically achieved.
