ASUS Z590 ROG Maximus XIII, TUF, & PRIME Motherboards Pictured

A number of upcoming Z590 ASUS motherboards have recently been pictured. The four upcoming motherboards include the ASUS ROG Maximus XIII Extreme Glacial, ASUS ROG Maximus XIII Hero, ASUS Prime Z590-A, and the ASUS TUF Z590-PLUS WIFI. These new motherboards feature an LGA1200 socket the same one found on existing Z490 boards and are targeted towards Intel's upcoming 11th generation processors. The new Rocket Lake-S processors will introduce support for PCIe 4.0 which should be fully supported on these new boards.

The Z590 MAXIMUS XIII EXTREME GLACIAL is a high-end premium motherboard with integrated monoblock from EK. The board is similar to the Z490 GUNDAM and comes in an E-ATX form factor. The 13th edition ASUS ROG Maximus XIII Hero includes dual EATX12V 8-pin power connectors an upgrade from the 8+4 pin configuration found on the Z490 series. These new motherboards are expected to be announced in the coming days during CES.

Five AMD A520 Chipset Motherboards Listed by ASUS

ASUS has apparently begun listing motherboards on the as-of-yet-unreleased, as-of-yet-undetailed AMD A520 chipset. Lower in the chipset rung than AMD's X570 and B550 chipsets, the A520 is expected to not offer any dedicated PCIe 4.0 lanes by itself - at most, motherboards will support the same 20 PCIe 4.0 lanes offered by AMD's CPUs, with the rest I/O being PCIe 3.0-based in order to further cut platform and chipset costs.

All of the A520 chipset motherboards listed by ASUS seem to be in the mATX form-factor - which again makes sense, as having the most basic chipset in order to cut costs and then using the same PCB real-estate as more expensive chipset solutions doesn't seem like a wise choice. The listed motherboards are the
PRIME A520M-A; PRIME A520M-E; PRIME A520M-K; TUF GAMING A520M-A; and TUF GAMING A520M-PLUS. As you can see, these motherboards are set in the ASUS TUF and Prime product lines - there's no mention of any Strix-branded products.
