The First Asus Rampage Extreme was released in 2008 for the first Core 2 Duo/Quad processors and brought the very best of every category to that platform, and each generation after Asus has done the same. Five major generations later, we get the ASUS ROG Rampage VI Extreme for Intel’s X299 ecosystem. Following Tradition, this Rampage Extreme has the very best technologies and features available today, and are even borrows a bit of tomorrow’s tech as well.
Based around Intel’s X299 chipset, The Extreme offers support for Intel Sky Lake-X and Kaby Lake-X CPU’s, Quad Channel DDR4 4266MHz and beyond, 4-way Nvidia SLI and 4-way AMD Crossfire, as well as the latest in storage technologies.
