Staying true to tradition, Maximus VI GENE arrives fully loaded for action. Extreme Engine Digi+ III precision power delivery, exclusive tuning utilities, and advanced gaming features. These include SupremeFX 115 dB SNR crystal-clear audio, the Sonic Radar visualized in-game overlay, Intel Ethernet, and GameFirst II network optimization. Eager for mATX domination? Look no further.

Re-arm with better sound and faster networking
ROG has upped the game audio ante with an advanced differential circuit design. It includes an Op-Amp that combines two opposite-phased signals while filtering out noise interference during transmission, providing clear audio stream output with double the intensity. Moreover, SupremeFX on Maximus VI GENE also implements multi-approach shielding, with ELNA audio capacitors helping offer 8-channel HD sound that's equal in power, clarity, and range to dedicated sound cards. This is the first-ever onboard sound capable of true audiophile-grade performance, set to revolutionize the way you hear games, movies, music, and even other people via chat.

mPCIe Combo II
The next evolution of the mPCIe Combo card gives you even better expandability. It's easy to install, and adds mini PCI Express 2.0 plus USB 2.0, which is perfect for connecting Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules to give your desktop instant wireless. It also keeps a precious PCI Express slot free. The compact but versatile card further future-proofs your build with M.2 (NGFF, Next Generation Form Factor) connectivity for SSDs. M.2 is a fast and power-efficient standard that aims to replace mPCIe and mSATA, designed to optimize SSD performance. mPCIe Combo II works with your high speed M.2 SSDs and makes the most of their potential, helping you reduce load times to make your OS and games even faster.

Extreme Engine Digi+ III
Completely digital architecture attains total control over the Fully Integrated Voltage Regulators (FIVR) of Intel processors to supply the highest stability and precision for the CPU and memory. The design features dynamic speed adjustments alongside intricate manual controls that allow you to push processors and RAM beyond their limits. Power components are also upgraded. NexFET MOSFETs handle up to 90% efficiency under normal operation and better durability in half the size of standard MOSFETs.

Best UEFI BIOS design gives you full control of your PC
The ROG UEFI BIOS includes a last modified feature that records recent changes. And to make sure you never forget a tuning idea, the in-BIOS quick note is perfect for jotting down memos and system details. It sure beats easily-misplaced paper notes! There's also F4 My Favorites and shortcuts for easy access to the BIOS features you need most, and you can even adjust boot logo size. The BIOS also lets you name individual SATA ports so you can easily identify them to save time when defining boot sequences and other drive-related settings.

Unleash your graphic power
SLI or CrossFireX? Fret no longer because with the ROG Maximus VI GENE, you'll be able to run both multi-GPU setups. The board features SLI/CrossFire on Demand technology, supporting up to Quad-GPU SLI or Quad-GPU CrossFireX configuration. Whichever path you take, you can be assured of jaw-dropping graphics at a level previously unseen.

2nd T-Topology
For extreme memory overclocking under full load, ASUS developed the T-Topology. It further optimizes layout to minimize coupling noise and signal reflection, increasing DRAM overclocking. Testing shows around 5% more OC margin under full load, and 10% OC margin growth for one-DIMM configurations.
