ASUS’ White ROG Maximus Z790 Formula motherboard leaks

ASUS’ ROG Maximus Z790 Formula leaks ahead of its official reveal

Motherboard manufacturers are all preparing new Intel Z790 motherboard designs, and we all know why. Intel’s 14th generation “Raptor Lake Refresh” processors leaked a long time ago, and manufacturers want to capitalise on this launch. Thanks to @wxnod on X, we have gotten a look at ASUS’ new ROG ROG Maximus Z790 Formula design.

Technically speaking, this Z790 Formula design is an all-new motherboard from ASUS. The company has not released an Intel Formula series motherboard design since the ROG Maximus Z690 Formula. While this motherboard is launching as part of ASUS’ refreshed Z790 lineup, it is an entirely new addition to their product line, not a refreshed/enhanced motherboard model.

Like all Z790 motherboards, the Z790 Formula features Intel’s LGA-1700 socket and will support Intel 12th, 13th, and 14th generation CPUs. The board will support WIFI 7, DDR5 memory, and PCIe 5.0 connectivity. Like all Formula series motherboards, users can enhance their VRM heatsink with liquid cooling. Just hook up a custom liquid cooling loop and you can enjoy much lower VRM thermals. That’s great news for overclockers.

Like its predecessor, the ROG Maximus Z790 Formula is an ATX motherboard design that features a white heatsink/shroud design. Unfortunately, the full specifications of this motherboard are currently unknown. That said, its Z690 counterpart did feature 10Gb ethernet, dual Thunderbolt 4 ports, and USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 support. We expect ASUS’ new Z790 model to be more feature rich.

Currently, we expect Intel and their partnered motherboard manufacturers to start talking about their 14th generation CPU plans soon. This will include discussions on their new Z790 motherboards, and Intel’s latest generation of Core processors.
