Asus ROG Maximus VI Gene Features:

  • LGA1150 socket for 4th Generation Intel®Core™ i7/ i5/ i3/ Pentium® / Celeron® Processors
  • Intel® Z87 Express Chipset
  • SupremeFX- Supremacy through discrete-caliber audio 
  • ROG has upped the game audio ante with an advanced differential circuit design. It includes an Op-Amp that combines two opposite-phased signals while filtering out noise interference during transmission, providing clear audio stream output with double the intensity. Moreover, SupremeFX on Maximus VI GENE also implements multi-approach shielding, with ELNA audio capacitors helping offer 8-channel HD sound that's equal in power, clarity, and range to dedicated sound cards. This is the first-ever onboard sound capable of true audiophile-grade performance, set to revolutionize the way you hear games, movies, music, and even other people via chat. Discover a whole new dimension of superior audio and get ready to rule. 
  • Sonic Radar- Scan and detect to dominate
  • mPCIe Combo II- Extra connections with new gen support 
  • The next evolution of the mPCIe Combo card gives you even better expandability with the latest standards in connectivity. It’s easy to install, and adds mini PCI Express 2.0 plus USB 2.0, which is perfect for connecting Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules to give your desktop instant wireless. It also keeps a precious PCI Express slot free. 
  • The compact but versatile card further future-proofs your build with M.2 (NGFF, Next Generation Form Factor) connectivity for SSDs. M.2 is a fast and power-efficient standard that aims to replace mPCIe and mSATA, designed to optimize SSD performance. mPCIe Combo II works with your high speed M.2 SSDs and makes the most of their potential, helping you reduce load times to make your OS and games even faster.
  • Extreme Engine Digi+ III- Hardcore power delivery with premium components 
  • Completely digital architecture attains total control over the Fully Integrated Voltage Regulators (FIVR) of Intel® processors to supply the highest stability and precision for the CPU and memory. The design features dynamic speed adjustments alongside intricate manual controls that allow you to push processors and RAM beyond their limits.
  • Power components are also upgraded. NexFET MOSFETs handle up to 90% efficiency under normal operation and better durability in half the size of standard MOSFETs. Exclusive BlackWing chokes remain cool even when sizzling with as much as 60 amps of power with 3-5°C lower temps and minimal-loss power delivery. Japan-made 10K Black Metallic capacitors last five times longer and deliver 20% greater extreme temperature endurance than generic solid state capacitors, easily standing up to hardcore demands.
  • 2nd generation T-Topology:  5%+ full load OC margin and 10%+ with one DIMM For extreme memory overclocking under full load, ASUS developed the world’s first 2nd generation T-Topology. It further optimizes layout to minimize coupling noise and signal reflection, increasing DRAM overclocking. Testing shows around 5% more OC margin under full load, and 10% OC margin growth for one-DIMM configurations.
  • GameFirst II + Intel LAN- Put Your Frags First
  • RAMDisk- Double up on speed with RAM
