ROG Maximus Z690 Formula
Diversity to the Max imus. Thats what the latest Formula brings to the acclaimed ROG Maximus series. Its Moonlight White armor and customizable ARGB lighting elements ride alongside a hybrid VRM block designed in collaboration with EK, giving you ample freedom to express your preferred build style. And underneath, circuit pathways illuminated with PCIe Gen 5.0 and limit-breaking DDR5 support are poised to elevate performance well into the future, driving the Maximus Z690 Formula's appeal far beyond aesthetics.

Intelligent Motherboard
Intelligent software solutions help ensure that your system performs at its best. The latest ASUS AI-powered enhancements span four pillars of performance, including overclocking, cooling, networking and onboard audio, making advanced tweaks and optimization accessible to new recruits and savvy PC DIY veterans alike.

SPEC OVERVIEW

PERFORMANCE
The ROG Maximus Z690 Formula CPU VRM is comprised of 105 amp power stages that are strategically teamed to quickly cancel transients. Alongside, the ROG take on DDR5 support frees memory kits to achieve their full potential.

COOLING
An ambition to maximize performance calls for an appropriately powerful platform. Enter the CrossChill EK III VRM block, empowering enthusiasts to break the limits of conventional voltage regulation with a hybrid cooling system that sails past the core power requirements of 12th Gen Intel Core processors while maintaining rock-steady thermals.

CONNECTIVITY
The latest connectivity solutions - WiFi 6E, PCIe 5.0 and two Thunderbolt 4 USB Type-C ports - empower supersmooth networking and blisteringly fast file transfers. And for enthusiasts looking for high-fidelity audio, the SupremeFX ALC4082 codec takes gaming immersion to a whole new level while also saving a PCIe slot.
