The ASUS Maximus X FORMULA in detail:
The ASUS Maximus X FORMULA has an E-ATX form factor and uses the cutting edge Z370 chipset so it is compatible with Intel's 8000-series Core processors (Coffee Lake). This architecture enables compatible K-series CPUs to be automatically overclocked.
Since the motherboard is compliant with NVIDIA's SLI- and AMD's CrossFireX technologies, graphic performance can be further enhanced by linking multiple GPUs.
The ASUS Maximus X FORMULA has numerous technical innovations, enhancements and an array of storage solutions. There are two PCIe x16 slots, one of which uses a full 16 lanes to connect to the chipset, as well as three further PCIe x1 slots-->. It has dual M.2 slots--> capable of running ultra fast NVMe-M.2 SSDs, resulting in a data transfer rate of nearly 4 GB/s. This makes M.2 PCIe SSDs up to eight times faster than SATA 6G SSDs. There are also four SATA 6G connectors for 3,5"- or 2,5" hard drives and -SSDs (incl. RAID support). Up to 32GB of RAM can be added across two DIMM slots-->.
The ASUS Maximus X FORMULA offers excellent options for connecting external peripherals. The motherboard comes with an I/O panel boasting an array of the very latest and greatest connectivity standards including both Type-A and Type-CT USB 3.1 ports as well as eight USB 3.1 and six USB 2.0 ports.
Network connections can be made a 5Gbps Ethernet port.
Video is displayed via an HDMI or DisplayPort 1.2 while excellent audio output is provided by Asus's SupremeFX high fidelity audio S1220A CODEC excellent.
ASUS Maximus X FORMULA includes support for Asus's own Aura lighting standard. This enables users to coordinate RGB lighting components to achieve effects such as static, breathing and strobing.
