ASUS Officially Launches ROG Maximus V Gene

ASUS has officially launched ROG Maximus V Gene, a micro-ATX board based on the new Intel Z77 Express chipset that is targeted at gamers who are looking to build their gaming platforms on micro-ATX form factor boards that feature this latest desktop chipset of Intel.

The ASUS ROG Maximus V Gene has four DIMM slots and two PCIe Gen 3.0 x16 slots (x8/x8 with both slots are populated). It sports two native SATA 6Gbps connectors and four native SATA 3Gbps ones. Third party SATA connectivity is provided by ASMedia SATA controllers.

The rear I/O ports and connectors are fairly standard and one of the interesting feature is the mPCIe Combo expansion card that allows the Maximus V Gene to be fitted with an mSATA SSD or/and a mini-PCIe add-on card. One of the USB 2.0 ports (white one) featured by Intel Z77 Express chipset can be used for ROG Connect, allowing power users and tweakers to tweak their hardware rig on their own computing platform via a USB cable!

Besides supporting Intel's second and third generation of Core i3/i5/i7 processors, this small package supports up to 4-way GPU setup in SLI or Crossway environment despite its micro-ATX form factor. The Intel Z77 Express chipset supports dual-channel memory architecture and the board sports 4 memory DIMMs that can take up to a maximum of 32GB of DDR3 system memory (support OC memory modules with rated frequencies up to 2800MHz).

In addition to supporting OC DDR3 memory modules, the ASUS Maximus V Gene is built for overclocking with its Extreme Engine DIGI+ II VRM system for better overclocking experience. For more details, do visit the product official site here.
