Zenith Extreme and Rampage VI Extreme lead the way for AMD and Intel chipsets.
Asus has gone to town on high-end consumer motherboards. We say this because the company has loaded the proverbial kitchen sink on its premier AMD and Intel offerings.
Starting off with AMD, Asus is one of the few guys to produce the X399 chipset reserved for the upcoming 'Threadripper' CPU. The Zenith Extreme features premium components all round - integrated OLED screen, Aura Sync lighting, 802.11ad WiFi, RGB strips, and 10Gbe Ethernet - and should be available as soon as Threadripper launches in the summer.
Arguably, the X299 Rampage VI Extreme is even more out there, but we won't spoil the surprises until you watch Jonathan from Asus give you the rundown in the video above. Tempted by either ultra-premium platforms?
