  • Summary: By using socket 1155 with Z77 chipset, both Intel CPU's with 32 nm and the new 22 nm models can be used on this motherboard. The latter, being Ivy Bridge CPUs, run their PCI Express slots with the new 3.0 standard.

  • Summary: We’ve had a lot of experience with ASUS’ Republic of Gamers branded boards. ASUS’ latest entry in the brand aims to prove that good things come in small packages.

eteknix.com
1 May 2012
  • Conclusion: So where do I start for a conclusion.

ASUS Maximus V GENE Motherboard review

The Guru of 3D
25 April 2012
  • Summary: That's some pretty crazy stuff. This was the smallest motherboard we tested, yet it was the fastest in terms of performance. The overall baseline performance trumps all other Z77 boards we tested as ASUS applies a little trick with the ROG motherboard, likely slightly higher turbo's for the low bin...
