The new Intel 8 Generation Core processors are the best desktop CPUs for gaming on the market. With up to six cores and 12 threads, these Coffee Lake chips also have huge potential for enthusiasts and power users who do more with their PCs. Asus, Republic of Gamers (ROG), Asus has developed a diverse collection of Z370 gaming motherboards for a range of priorities and budgets.
The latest lineup reinforces ROG’s role as both a breeding ground for innovative features and a proving ground where we test the absolute limits of performance. It includes standouts like the Maximus X Apex, a hardcore gaming and overclocking board designed to break performance records; the Maximus X Hero, which blends leading performance with premium extras; the Maximus X Code that redefines the performance essentials for gamers and enthusiasts and the Maximus X Formula, which is brimming with cutting-edge features fit for showcase PCs.
While the Maximus series covers the higher end of the spectrum, the ROG Strix family opens the Republic of Gamers to a wider audience. It provides everything you need in a gaming motherboard but excludes some of our more indulgent extras to hit affordable price points. Full-sized ATX options include closely matched contenders for the sweet spot, the ROG Strix Z370-E and ROG StrixZ370-F Gaming, and an unexpected retro revival, the ROG Strix Z370-H Gaming. Smaller form factors are served by the mATXROG Strix Z370-G Gaming and Mini-ITX ROG Strix Z370-I Gaming.
