ASUS Unveils ROG Maximus VI Impact Mini
ASUS announced its first Republic of Gamers ROG motherboard in the miniITX formfactor, the Maximus VI Impact, which could go on to become choice number one for SFF gaming PC builders. Arguably the most featurerich miniITX motherboard ever made, the Maximus VI Impact is a socket LGA1150 motherboard based on Intel Z87 Express chipset, which supports 4th generation Core Haswell processors.
The board draws power from a combination of 24pin ATX and 8pin EPS connectors, and conditions it using a 10phase VRM that offshoots into its own little PCB, with heatsink. The other three daughterboards on the Maximus VI Impact include the SupremeFX Impact, a soundcard with an audiophilegrade 115 dBA DAC, OPAMPs, and audiograde capacitors; and an mPCIe combo card that lends it 802.11 ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0; and an ImpactControl card that gives overclockers POST diagnostic readouts and CMOS reset/restore at the push of a button, right from the rear panel.
On the connectivity front, the Maximus VI Impact gives you four SATA 6 Gb/s ports, an eSATA 6 Gb/s port, six USB 3.0 ports four rear, two by header, six USB 2.0/1.1 ports, HDMI, DisplayPort, gigabit Ethernet Intel controller, 6channel SupremeFX Impact audio with 8channel digital output, a PCIExpress 3.0 x16 slot, and two DDR3 DIMM slots supporting up to 32 GB of dualchannel DDR3 memory. Most ROGexclusive features from the Maximus VI Extreme and Maximus VI Hero are carried over. ASUS didnt finalize pricing. Now Im thinking about selling the 3570K, then buying this ROG board and a 4670K. Decisions, decisions. :confused:I have that combo 3570K on P8Z77I Deluxe and it is :rockout:
though I miss my XtremeGamer sound card from my previous setup. :ohwell:
there is huge difference at least to my ears between the onboard audio ALC889A or ALC898 and elcheapo sound card such as XtremeGamer. and that on Roccat Kave, a normal gaming hadset.
