In addition to the X99-Deluxe ASUS’s Republic of Gamers Rampage V Extreme motherboard has been unveiled. The motherboard will be the flagship of ASUS’s X99 Republic of Gamers line and wow is it feature packed!
Keeping true to form the Rampage V Extreme will have the same black and red color scheme that ASUS uses on all of their Republic of Gamers products. This board does not fit the normal ATX form factor, instead ASUS has gone with the larger E-ATX form factor to fit in all of the features. The board will feature the LGA 2011-3 socket, which is flanked on each side by 4 DDR4 DIMM slots. The board will have an 8 phase DIGI+VRM design, which of course makes use of high quality components.
Along the right side of the motherboard we can see a set of dip switches to turn off your PCI-Express slots, a debug LED, power and reset buttons, MemOK button, BIOS reset button, and LN2 switch. There is also an M.2 slot that runs down from the bottom of the 24pin ATX power connector to the SATA ports. There is also two USB 3.0 headers on the board, one at the center of the board towards the right side and one on the bottom of the board.
For storage on the board you have twelve SATA 6GB/s ports and two SATA Express ports. For expansion you have five PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots and an open-end PCI-Express 3.0 x1 slot. The board will feature ASUS’s SupremeFX audio chip that has its own PCB isolation from the rest of the motherboard. The rear I/O of the motherboard includes 10 USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac WiFi connectors, 7.1 channel audio, BIOS flashback button and ROG connect button.
Like previous Rampage Extreme models the Rampage V Extreme will ship with ASUS’s OC Panel device. This can be used to easily tune your system in real time and provides quite a lot of overclocking options. Expect this motherboard to have a hefty price tag.
