Asus has evolved its ROG Strix series of motherboards with a special focus on enhancing the gaming experience, and the ROG Strix Z790-E Gaming WiFi II edition comes with a new upgrade in this category.

Asus introduces new gaming standards in desktop systems with the ROG Strix Z790-E Gaming WiFi II motherboard, featuring exceptional gaming performance. This edition is the top-tier in the motherboard series.

With a PCIe 5.0 x16 slot and a PCIe 5.0 M.2 slot, users get better support for choosing the best graphics card versions with the best available SSD drives for current or next-generation performance.

This version is ideal with the Intel Core i9-14900K processor from the 14th generation to boost gaming frequencies.

The motherboard also features WiFi 7 technology for faster internet connectivity, providing more efficient gaming performance on faster internet networks. It includes a PD fast charging-ready port at 30W.

The motherboard’s LJ 1700 supports 12th, 13th, and 14th gen Intel processors, enhancing color efficiency and capabilities in previous processor versions. Asus has prepared two M slots, supporting LGI 1700 and LG 1200.

The motherboard supports 4 DDR5 memory slots and two memory channels for maximum speeds up to 192GB.

This edition excels in smooth installation, especially with large-sized graphics cards and large-size air cooling systems that may make configurations difficult. However, Asus supports the motherboard with a button on the right side to easily release the clip.

It includes an HDMI 2.1 port, a DisplayPort 1.4 port, and 10 rear USB 3.2 ports, including two 10Gbps USB-A ports and two USB-C ports. The top port supports USB 3.2 Gen 2 standards at 10Gbps, while the bottom port adheres to USB 3.2 Gen 2 standards and supports two 20Gbps USB ports.

The motherboard also comes with a 2.5Gbps Ethernet port, Bluetooth 5.4 support, Wi-Fi 7, and supports 7.1 HD multi-directional surround sound.

Compared to the previous version, Asus has made some changes in the IO shield and chips, with the new generation’s design being the best. In terms of ports, the new version offers more USB 2.0 ports at the bottom of the motherboard interface. The Z790-E Gaming WiFi II motherboard comes with more connectors.

The main difference between the two versions lies in the specifications. The Bluetooth has been upgraded to 5.4 in the new version, and the networking has been upgraded to Wi-Fi 7.

The new version supports more memory with higher speeds, and with 10 rear A-class ports, the speed reaches 10Gbps. Only 6 ports adhere to the previous standards, with 4 ports supporting 5Gbps. Therefore, the motherboard comes with several changes and improvements that qualify this version to be compatible with Intel’s 14th-generation processors efficiently.
