ASUS has announced their ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha, new motherboard models specially engineered to unleash the massive computing power of the latest AMD Ryzen Threadripper 64-core, 128-thread 3990X processor.
The existing ROG Zenith II Extreme, ROG Strix TRX40-E Gaming and ASUS Prime TRX40-Pro motherboards easily handle 24-core and 32-core Threadripper processors, the new ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha motherboard is designed to maximise the extreme performance of the latest 64-core AMD 3990X processor with higher-current power stages that deliver improved efficiency and more headroom for overclocking.
ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha features 16 Infineon TDA21490 power stages, each rated for 90 amps, resulting in enhanced headroom for overclocking. It also shifts to high-current DrMOS stages to fuel memory performance. This enhancement means Zenith II Extreme Alpha is validated for the 64-core 3990X paired with a G.Skill Trident Z Neo 256GB (8x32 GB) DDR4-3600 CL 16 memory kit. With their exclusive OptiMem III technology, Zenith II Extreme Alpha is currently the only high-end consumer desktop (HEDT) motherboard able to run at CL 16 with 3600 MHz with all DIMM slots populated for a total of 256 GB.
ASUS ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha is available to order now in Australia with the launching RRP of AUD $1399.00.
