A stunning board, and one of the best Z490s available, but one that costs the same as a full, utterly respectable gaming PC.
ASUS has once again created a behemoth of a board with the Maximus XII Extreme. The features are numerous and the performance is solid. If you are liquid cooling, this should be on your short list.
If you need 12+ USB devices, quad M.2 storage, ultra-fast networking, the ability to rag your CPU 24/7 with confidence, ultra-fast RAM, and every moment of your day is a time vs money balance of graphics and rendering, then it may be the right motherboard for you. It may be dressed up for a party, but at its heart, this is a very serious workstation board sitting in the consumer market.
The ROG Maximum XII Extreme is highly recommended as a truly terrific motherboard, but at the time of writing we also realize that the cost of ownership is a challenge for many as it is set at 799 USD running upwards to 899 EUR in the EU. We're not sure how to rate this, this motherboard deserves a best hardware award, but due to pricing, we're a bit conflicted on how to deal with that. Price aside, as hardware, fantastic.
Its an excellently built board with not much in terms of innovation but I’ll dock those points on Intel rather than ASUS as they force them to do some desperate things despite the stagnancy that Intel CPUs are maintaining during these times. The ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XII EXTREME is a great board in terms of its offerings and the choice falls to the user.
La familia Republic of Gamers (ROG) de ASUS tiene una historia larga e histórica, y esta Maximus XII Extreme es una adición digna de esta famosa gama. Definitivamente tiene un precio premium, pero también lo son todas las placas Z490 insignia. Con una combinación de conectividad masiva, enfriamiento y rendimiento destacado, esta Maximus XII Extreme es una excelente opción para aquellos de ustedes que buscan maximizar su CPU Intel de 10ma generación.
Esta ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XII EXTREME está disponible por un precio de 1000 euros si redondeamos. Realmente elevado, aunque no nos sorprende al ser una de las mejores placas para Z490. Para un usuario normal pensamos que no se le va a sacar todo el partido, así que será recomendable solo para lo que piensan hacer configuraciones gaming extremas.
The Republic of Gamers range from ASUS has a long and storied history, and the Maximus XII Extreme is a deserving addition to this famous range. It's definitely at a premium price point, but so are all the flagship Z490s. With a combination of massive connectivity, cooling and performance, the Maximus XII Extreme is a great choice for those of you seeking to maximise your 10th Gen Intel CPU.
