Last year’s Maximus X Formula was effectively the 10-year anniversary of the Formula family and it brought Intel’s Coffey Lake CPU’s and Z370 chipset into the Formula family. A short while later, Intel refreshed the CPU line and added the Z390 chipset to the 300 series lineup. While the latest 9th gen CPU’s are fully compatible with the outgoing 8th gen Maximus X Formula, ASUS’s has updated the platform to bring new features such as integrated Wireless and native USB 3.1 Gen 2 powered by the Z390 chipset. Add this to the now standard liquid cooling capable VRM with integrated water block from EKWB, ROG Armor, pre-mounted I/O Shield and updates like an oversized LiveDash Display, new NODE connectivity, and 5-gigabit networking. Is this the formula for cranking your next build to eleven?
Pro Clockers would like to thank ASUS for sending over the ROG Maximus XI Formula for us to check out!
