ASUS and the ROG team make it a constant goal to always improve. With this sometimes even an existing and current model may get upgraded as new and innovative technologies are created or introduced on another platform entirely. This is the case with the board we have today the Crosshair V Formula-Z is the newest iteration of the previous Crosshair V Formula motherboard. ASUS has taken some of the tricks and cool new features it learned and implemented on its Z77 lineup and pushed them over to the AMD side to see how they would work when paired with the best AMD has to offer. The Z variant of the Crosshair V Formula omits the legacy PCI slot in favor of a extra PCI-E x1 slot. Also thrown into the mix are 2 more available SATA 6G ports, an extended Extreme engine DIGI+ II design which improves upon the older Extreme Engine DIGI+ design of the non Z variant. New memory improvements which brings the memory up to a rated capability of 2400+ MHz and also introduces the new T-Topology memory design seen previously on all of the Z77 line of boards. Add to this such gaming improvements as GameFirst II and the new SupremeFX III audio and you can see this board is shaping up to be a real killer.
