For Intel’s 11th Gen CPU launch, ASUS have shipped us five different motherboards and we are finally about to take a look at the final and probably best one of all. To see all the other models and more, make sure to check out all our Z590 motherboard reviews. ASUS offer a wide range of products and generally have something for everyone. Whether you are looking for more entry-level/mid-range or proper enthusiast grade hardware, ASUS will have a product line for you. As we will see soon, the MAXIMUS range is one of their top motherboard ranges and it will become very easy to see why as we make our way through this review.

ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XIII EXTREME

Before us, we have the BIG DADDY of motherboards from ASUS. The MAXIMUS XIII EXTREME is a ridiculously feature-rich motherboard that is going to offer the best of everything the Z590 Chipset and Intel’s i9-11900K have to offer! The only downside is that we currently have no real competition to compare it to, but ah well, let’s see what this monstrosity can do!
