Product Description

Asus Z490 ROG MAXIMUS XII FORMULA LGA 1200 ATX Motherboard

Maximus XII Formula

ROG Maximus XII series motherboards are designed to explore the upper echelons of gaming and overclocking. The Formula is plumbed for custom liquid cooling and includes other enhancements to punctuate premium systems. The CrossChill EK III VRM block, co-developed with EK Water Blocks, help cope with higher VRM loads associated with Intel Comet Lake CPUs. Aesthetically, Maximus XII Formula has a stealthy black finish with intricate patterns cut into its reflective armor. The latest-generation Formula is all set to make your showcase rig shine.

 

Intelligent Motherboard

Our ROG engineers developed and extensively tested intelligent software solutions to ensure your system stays in optimal condition.

 

AI Cooling

AI Cooling automatically manages and controls motherboard-connected fans, ensuring the most efficient settings depending on the current system load and temperature.

 

PERFORMANCE

The Intel Comet Lake processor features 10 cores and a peak single-core Turbo speed that exceeds 5.3 GHz right out of the box. To cope with this increased demand on the system, Maximus XII Formula takes advantage of its intelligent VRM design and uses quality components to ensure the best gaming and daily productive computing experience.

A brief history

We became the first manufacturer to implement phase-doublers when we shipped our A8N32-SLI Deluxe motherboard, back in 2005. The board's VRM was lauded for elegantly overcoming the power handling capabilities of components that were available at the time and also reducing voltage ripple. Those benefits led to phase-doublers becoming universally accepted in the industry, and they are still used for similar purposes today.

 

A shift in CPU demands

 

While doublers help extend the number of effective phases, they do so at the cost of a processing delay.

 

However, today's CPUs now pack more cores than their predecessors, and the latest instruction sets allow them to crunch computationally dense workloads at an incredible pace. In addition, they consume less power at idle and can transition between load states much more quickly. These improvements necessitate a re-evaluation of power-design priorities because phase-doublers add a propagation delay that hampers transient response
