The ASUS ROG Zenith II Extreme TRX40 Motherboard Review: The Second Coming

Following on from our launch day AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X and 3960X CPU reviews, we are taking a look at the accompanying flagship model from ASUS. The ASUS ROG Zenith II Extreme is the predecessor of the previous generation of X399, the original Zenith Extreme, and comes packed with all the benefits of AMD’s TRX40 chipset including PCIe 4.0, strong USB 3.1 G2 implementation, and support for up to DDR4-4733 in quad-channel across eight memory slots. With a 16-phase power delivery for the CPU and a LiveDash 1.77” OLED color screen, the ROG Zenith II Extreme looks to set the standard for enthusiasts on AMD’s high-end desktop platform.
