ASUS’s flagship ROG Maximus Z790 Excessive motherboard has been pictured for the primary time operating the Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU. The flagship mixture was posted over at OCN Boards by Brazilian overclocker, RobertoSampaio.
ASUS’s Subsequent-Gen ROG Maximus Z790 Excessive Motherboard Pictured With Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU
Roberto states that he’s presently beneath NDA with an unknown get together, most likely Intel. He has posted photos of his take a look at gear which incorporates an Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU and ASUS’s next-generation ROG Maximus Z790 Excessive motherboard. To begin with, let’s take concerning the newest flagship board from ASUS.
The very first thing that we are able to discover is that the ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 Excessive motherboard has quite a lot of resemblance to the prevailing Z690 Excessive motherboard. There are a couple of delicate modifications such because the PCH and SSD heatsink/cowl which now has a barely completely different aesthetic than the dotted one we noticed on the earlier motherboard. The ASUS PCIe Q-Launch button has additionally been moved away from the aspect cowl and now sits between the DIMM.2 and the DDR5 slots.
The remainder of the board is generally the identical and we are able to see why that is the case. The Z790 and Z690 chipsets aren’t completely different in any respect moreover a rise within the variety of PCIe 4.0 lanes. The Z790 motherboards do not function PCIe Gen 5.0 lanes coming instantly from the CPU or chipset to feed the M.2 Gen 5.0 slots and people need to be break up with the Discrete GPU if a vendor needs so as to add in Gen 5 M.2 SSD performance. The Z790 Excessive might be amongst the numerous ASUS Z790 boards that might be obtainable at launch subsequent month.
With the motherboard out of the best way, let’s get again to the Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU particulars shared by Roberto. He states that the wattage dialogue concerning the Raptor Lake CPUs has been overhyped and all you could do is to calibrate the DC load line within the BIOS which can lead to a lot decrease energy figures. He states that the common energy consumption of the Core i9-13900K with Load line calibration is 200W at full load and with overclock, the chip can hit as much as 250 Watts. He additionally states that he examined the CPU on a $20 air-cooler at inventory and the CPU peaked at 90 Levels Celsius.
Roberto additionally acknowledged that he can hit 6.5 GHz at 1.45V utilizing a great liquid cooler and that his chip is a golden pattern so these outcomes is probably not relevant to most Raptor Lake CPUs. he additionally stated that the P-Cores can hit 5.7 GHz and E-Cores can hit as much as 4.4 GHz on the ROG Maximus Z790 Excessive motherboard with a Ring-bus frequency of 5.0 GHz. The reminiscence used was ADATA’s XPG Lancer 32 GB DDR5-6000 CL40 “AX5U6000C4016G-DCLARBK” and it ran completely on the setup and was tuned all the way down to CL36-104-34-29 CR2 timings.
We’ve already seen benchmarks of Intel’s Core i9-13900K at clock speeds of as much as 6.2 GHz and it seems to be like with some tuning the facility consumption could be toned down considerably although we will look ahead to last outcomes since this can be a golden pattern we’re taking a look at. Intel’s thirteenth Gen Raptor Lake CPUs together with the Z790 motherboards are deliberate to launch subsequent month on the twentieth of October.
