ASUS ROG Maximus XIII Hero Review: Everything for Rocket Lake

On our test bench today is one of ASUS ROG's enthusiast models designed for Intel's Rocket Lake processors. The ASUS ROG Maximus XIII Hero brings plenty of premium controllers and connectivity to the table including dual 2.5 GbE, dual Thunderbolt 4 Type-C, Wi-Fi 6E, four M.2 slots, and a robust 14-phase power delivery capable of pushing Rocket Lake above its capabilities. We have put the Z590 Hero through its paces to see if it is the champion model in the sub $500 Z590 market.

ASUS ROG Maximus XIII Hero Overview

It is probably the last desktop processor on Intel's 14nm architecture, but Rocket Lake comes a bunch of refinements including PCIe 4.0 connectivity through the CPU, support for native USB 3.2 G2x2 on the chipset, and double bandwidth to that chipset enabling deeper IO connectivity. But if every adventure needs a Hero, and ASUS believes it has the one motherboard to rule them all.

Looking at the design, the ASUS ROG Maximus XIII Hero is using a typical ROG premium theme, with predominately black heatsinks, with some areas laden with shiny gun-metal grey. The Hero has two primary zones with integrated RGB LEDs, including the rear panel cover, and the chipset heatsink. Aiming for users looking for a premium experience, ASUS includes a solid all-round selection of features, including four M.2 ports, with one PCIe 4.0 x4, one PCIe 3.0 x4, two with PCIe 3.0 x/4 SATA support, as well as six SATA ports with RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 array support.

The Hero's expansion capability is geared for PCIe 4.0 connectivity, with two full-length PCIe 4.0 slots operating at x16, and x8/x8 when both full-length slots are populated. There are two other PCIe slots, albeit both at PCIe 3.0 due to being driven by the chipset, which includes one full-length slot operating at x4, and a small x1 slot. Memory support is another premium element that consists of supported speeds of DDR4-5333, with a combined total of 128 GB supported across four memory slots.

In line with other premium Z590 options, the Maximus XIII Hero includes an Intel Maple Ridge Thunderbolt 4 controller, which adds 40 Gbps Type-C ports on the rear panel. The board does benefit from one USB 3.2 G2x2 port, but this comes via the way of a front panel header. ASUS looks to be using as many of Intel's Z590 chipset features as it can, which is good to see. When it comes to onboard audio, ASUS includes a premium HD audio codec with a separate DAC. Other notable mentions include a stacked USB 3.2 G2 array on the rear panel, with a total of six for users to connect up USB devices with. ASUS also includes a solid networking array, with two Intel 2.5 GbE controllers and also utilizes Intel's latest Wi-Fi 6E CNVi. 

Focusing on performance, the ASUS ROG Maximus XIII Hero did well in our system tests, with solid and efficient power consumption figures, middle-of-the-road POST times, and exceptional DPC latency performance. In our compute and gaming tests, the Hero remained competitive.


The ASUS ROG Maximus XIII Hero undergoing our VRM thermal testing

When it comes to overclocking, the Maximus XIII Hero performed very well with our i9-11900K and showed exceptionally tight VDroop performance at default loadline calibration and power settings. We managed to get 5.3 GHz stable all-cores at 1.45 V, although we did experience some thermal throttling. With more aggressive cooling methods employed, the Hero is more than capable of pushing Rocket Lake clock speeds. Power consumption when overclocked was also bearable, which is down to the quality of the power delivery, with ASUS using premium Texas Instruments 90 A Smart Power Stages. Our VRM thermal testing also yielded very positive results with the coolest operating temperatures from all Z590 boards tested so far.

The ASUS ROG Maximus XIII Hero has an MSRP of $500, but users shopping around are likely to find it between $470 and $500. Comparing it to the competition on specifications, the primary competition comes from the MSI MEG Z590 Ace ($500) which we have also reviewed. On paper, both look nearly identical, but the Hero benefits from an additional 2.5 GbE port, and more USB 3.2 G2 connectivity on the rear panel. Another benefit that the Hero has comes in the software bundle and the firmware, which are exceptional, and when the hardware is backed up with adequate firmware/software, it makes for a more attractive all-around bundle.

Time to see how the Hero stacks up against other Z590 models! Read on for our extended analysis.

TODAY'S BEST DEALS

Asus’ ROG Maximus XIII Hero hits the motherboard scene offering users an extended features list, premium styling, and a price tag of $499.99. While that’s certainly expensive, it’s no longer flagship motherboard territory in terms of pricing. The latest Hero includes loads of USB ports (including ultra-fast Thunderbolt Type-C), high-quality VRMs and four M.2 sockets. All that, plus a high-end appearance and overall good performance help make this board worth the cost of admission.

Asus’ current Z590 product stack consists of 13 models. Starting from the top, the ROG Maximus XIII Extreme and its water-cooled counterpart, the Extreme Glacial, carve out the flagship SKUs, followed by the ROG Hero and the overclocking focused ROG Apex. There are four other ROG Gaming boards, Z590-E/-F/-A/-I(ITX), along with two TUF Gaming boards and three Prime boards on the budget end. Asus presents a well-rounded product stack with boards and price points for just about everyone from top to bottom.

Overall, performance on our Hero was the best out of the boards we’ve tested so far. Granted, the difference isn’t much between most of the higher-performing boards ( which bypass the Intel specification), but the Hero and its out-of-the-box settings lead the group. Overclocking went without a hitch, easily handling our 5.1 GHz clock speed along with the memory set to DDR4 4000. Of the several boards we’ve looked at, this and the MSI MEG Ace were some of the easier boards to overclock and get the memory to speed with little or no tweaking.

Generation after generation, the Asus ROG Maximus line has delivered (what this reviewer considers to be) devilishly good looks and a long list of features for the high-end segment. The Maximus XIII Hero continues this trend, tweaking the appearance a bit from the last generation and making other changes including adding PCIe 4.0 support for M.2 sockets and PCIe slots, Wi-Fi 6E, dual Thunderbolt USB Type-C ports and more. We’ll take a look at those and other features in detail. Below is the full specifications list from Asus.

Handarbeit 

Focusing on the top half of the board, we get a better look at the massive heatsinks/shrouds that cover a significant portion of the board. Wedged between the heatpipe-connected VRM heatsink are two reinforced 8-pin EPS connectors (one required) to send power to the CPU. To the right of the socket area and its gunmetal-colored capacitors are four DRAM slots capable of supporting up to 128GB of RAM. Asus lists supported speeds up to DDR4 5333(OC). But as always, your mileage may vary.

Just above the DRAM slots are the first three 4-pin fan/pump headers (of eight total). Six headers (CPU, Chassis, and AIO_Pump, support up to 1A/12W while the W_Pump and H_Amp headers support up to 3A/36W. The AIO and W_Pump headers run at full speed while the rest are Q-Fan controlled. 

Continuing right is the 2-character Q-Code debug LED, and just below it are the four Q-LEDs (CPU, DRAM, VGA and Boot) that light up during the boot process. If there is an issue during POST, that specific LED remains lit and tells you, generally, where the problem is. You can use the Q-Code display for more details.

Moving down the right edge, we see the first two (of four) RGB headers. In this area are two 3-pin (ARGB) headers. You’ll find the other two headers, a 4-pin RGB and a third 3-pin ARGB, across the bottom edge. Just below this is a large Start button to power the PC on and a smaller multi-function FlexKey button. By default, this reboots the system, but you can configure this as a quick access feature to activate Safe Boot or turn Aura lighting on/off. Further down the right edge is the 24-pin ATX power connector and below that, a USB 3.2 Gen2x2 Type-C front-panel header.

Asus went with a 14-phase ‘teamed’ VRM configuration for the XIII Hero. Power is sent to a Renesas ISL69269 controller (7+2+1), where each channel feeds two phases (no doubler inline). After that, it’s on to the 14 Texas Instrument NexFET 90A Smart Power stages. This allows the CPU to use up to 1260A, one of the higher values we’ve seen. While the Hero isn’t the most robust solution at this price point, it will have no issues with ambient and even extreme overclocking. You’ll be limited by CPU thermals long before this VRM gets in the way.

Taking a closer look at the bottom half of the board, we’ll start with the audio section on the left side. Underneath the plastic shroud, Asus chose the premium Realtek ALC4082 codec along with Chemicon brand Japanese audio capacitors. The Hero also includes an ESS Sabre9018Q2C DAC/Amp for driving your headphones properly. The onboard audio solution provides more than sufficient quality for an overwhelming majority of users.

In the middle of the board we find the PCIe slots and M.2 sockets. On the PCIe front, the Hero has three full-length PCIe slots and one x1 size slot. The top two PCIe slots are wired to the CPU and support PCIe 4.0 when using an 11th generation Intel processor. These top two slots run at x16/x0, x8/x8 or x8/x4 (lane bifurcation) and support Nvidia 2-Way SLI (AMD Crossfire is not mentioned in the specifications). The bottom full-length slot is fed from the chipset and runs at PCIe 3.0 x4. Out of the box, the bottom slot runs at PCIe 3.0 x2 mode and disables SATA ports 3/4. If you need to run the bottom slot at the full x4 mode, SATA ports 1/2/3/4 get disabled. 

The Maximus XIII Hero has four M.2 sockets mixed in with the PCIe slots. The top two sockets are both wired PCIe 4.0 x4. Asus accomplishes this by sharing bandwidth with the CPU-fed PCIe slots. When M.2_2 is enabled, the top PCIe slot runs at x8 and the second slot drops to x4. These sockets support PCIe modules only, with the top slot able to handle 110mm modules and the second slot up to 80mm. The third M.2 socket, connected to the chipset, runs at PCIe 3.0 x4 mode, supporting up to 80mm modules. The bottom socket supports up to 110mm PCIe 3.0 x4 and SATA-based M.2 devices. If M.2_4 (bottom right) is populated, SATA ports 5/6 are disabled. There’s a fair amount of lane sharing between the SATA ports, M.2 sockets and PCIe slots. So be sure to check out the manual for details on your specific configuration.

To the right of the PCIe area is the chipset heatsink, with the ROG symbol illuminated with RGB LEDs from underneath. On the right edge is another fan header, six SATA ports and two USB 3.2 Gen1 front panel headers that bookend the SATA ports.

Across the board’s bottom are several headers and buttons, including more USB ports, fan headers and more. If you’re into monitoring your custom water loop, there are headers for temperature and water flow as well. You can keep an eye on your entire cooling system, be it air or water. Below is the full list, from left to right:

  • Front-panel audio
  • RGB and ARGB headers
  • Retry button
  • Chassis fan and High Amp fan headers
  • (2) USB 2.0 headers
  • (2) Chassis fan headers
  • Temperature sensor, water flow headers
  • Speaker
  • Front panel header

The Asus ROG Maximus XIII Hero comes with a pre-installed rear IO panel sporting a black background with white writing for all of the ports and buttons. There are a total of 10 USB ports: two USB 2.0 ports, six USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A and two Thunderbolt 4 Type-C ports for ultra-fast USB storage. Located above the Type-C ports are the two 2.5 GbE ports, while next to those are the two Wi-Fi 6E antenna sockets. A single HDMI port handles video output when using integrated graphics. The audio stack is the full 5-plug analog, plus SPDIF output. Finally, also here are the BIOS flashback button to flash without a CPU and a Clear CMOS button.

Introduction, Specifications, and Pricing

ASUS ROG Maximus XIII Apex Motherboard Review 01 | TweakTown.com

VIEW GALLERY - 37 IMAGES

We are winding down our coverage of Z590 with Alder Lake on the horizon and what a platform it has been. I think everyone had pretty much counted Rocket Lake out before it was released, but it turned out to be a rather solid CPU that boosted Intel neck and neck with Zen 3. Z590 offered one of the best chipsets when it comes to connectivity, with Thunderbolt 4, WiFi6, 2.5Gbe as standard, and a host of USB 3.2 technologies.

One of the last boards we will review on Intel's 500 series chipset is the Maximus XIII Apex. Apex has been one hell of a platform for overclocking Rocket Lake, though we have seen more competition in the market, with every vendor offering a top-end clocking platform currently.

Like all Z590, we have compatibility with 10th and 11th Gen CPUs. 64GB of memory support up to DDR4 5100 over two slots. DIMM.2 takes on the task of Gen3 NVMe storage, while a single slot up top will handle your Gen4 NVMe. Eight SATA ports are included for legacy storage needs, while a host of USB 3.2 connectivity is offered both on internal headers and the rear I/O.

2.5Gbe is offered as standard, while WiFi6e is included on this board. We also have 20Gbps USB 3.2 Gen2x2 on the rear panel and the traditional 3.5mm audio setup.

Pricing

The ROG Maximus XIII Apex carries an MSRP of $599.99 with a three-year warranty.

Final Thoughts

Enthusiasts building with and looking for OC records have no shortage of options on Z590. Apex is top billing, offering a beefed-up 17-phase power design with 90A stages. It also doesn't lack connectivity, something we have seen vendors go soft on when building high-end OC platforms.

Currently, we don't have much for comparison, this platform being our first to run through Windows 11 testing. It is, however, our benchmark for upcoming reviews and comparison now when we move to Alder Lake later in the year. I will say that Storage performance was as expected, pushing upwards of 550 MB/s over SATA and near 7000 MB/s with Gen4 NVMe.

EFI is pretty standard now, with the last few generations of ROG boards using a very similar platform and layout. This, too, can be said with Armoury Crate. AC offers a robust platform that's a hybrid of GeForce Now and AI Suite, offering monitoring of the system components and fan controls and AURA Sync.

What We Like

Design: Board design, layout and components all great.

Connectivity: 2.5Gbe, WiFi6e and USB 3.2 Gen2x2 standard.

Compatibility: 10th and 11th Gen CPU support.

Price: $599 MSRP on par with other Z590 OC boards.

What Could Be Better

Maximus motherboard asus

ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII HERO LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Gaming Motherboard

Pros: Easy to set up, fast, many overclocking features, XMP setup for RAM, updated bios is fine, RAID works (Stripe with 3SSDs), Running my CAS 10 DDR4 just fine, overclock profiles can be stored in bios, reset button on the board, hosts everything I have with no crashes

Cons: What's funny here is the BIOS wins awards and stuff, but I found it to have some odd navigation, particularly when subscreens inside a tab remember what screen you were on, and the only way to know you're not on the main tab again is press escape and see if the screen changes (i.e. it took me a minute to find the sata config because I was already in a screen that was "past" it inside the tab). This could be resolved by using a breadcrumb of sort.

Overall Review: Get the latest BIOS, right now it's 1001. I made this review because I see some odd negative ones... I get that a board can be bad and should be RMA'd, but some actually worried me that there was a "bad batch" going around, and it was right when I was ordering, but mine is fine. The reports of the "computer restarting and showing the bios screen multiple times" is actually just the flow of the startup, it shows the ROG screen 2x because in the middle it shows an intermediate screen. Even I first thought it was "restarting", but it wasn't. Auto overclocking actually worked for me, but I wanted to fine tune it a bit so I don't use it. UPDATE : Multiple 3d games started to crash with a hard system lock. I have changed everything but the motherboard, processor, and drives. I ordered another non ASUS motherboard as a replacement after ASUS did not respond within a few days to my RMA request. I sent them another followup asking if they have received my RMA request, and it's been 9 days now and nothing... I had rated this motherboard 5 stars, and now I rate ASUS as 1 star.

ASUS Z690 Motherboard Lineup Leaks Out – ROG Maximus XIV, ROG STRIX, TUF Gaming & PRIME Series

ASUS Z690 Motherboard Listed By Canadian Retailer - Include ROG Maximus, ROG STRIX, TUF Gaming & Prime Series

ASUS's Z690 motherboard lineup has leaked out over at EEC and will include at least 16 boards. The lineup was spotted by Komachi (via Videocardz) and shows us what seems to be DDR5 and DDR4 specific motherboards.

16 ASUS Z690 Motherboards Leaked & Listed Over at EEC, Will Feature Both DDR5 and DDR4 Variants

According to the leak, ASUS is working on at least 16 motherboards that would launch under its Z690 series lineup. These include the next-gen ROG Maximus XIV, ROG STRIX, TUF Gaming & the PRIME series products.

ASUS ROG STRIX Z690I Gaming WiFi Motherboard Packaging Pictured, SFF ITX Design For Intel’s Alder Lake CPUs

ASUS Z690 ROG, ROG STRIX, TUF, PRIME, PROART Motherboards Leak

The motherboards include:

  • ROG MAXIMUS Z690 EXTREME (DDR5)
  • ROG MAXIMUS Z690 FORMULA (DDR5)
  • ROG MAXIMUS Z690 HERO (DDR5)
  • ProART Z690-CREATOR 10G (DDR5)
  • ROG STRIX Z690-A GAMING D4 (DDR4)
  • ROG STRIX Z690-E GAMING D4 (DDR4)
  • ROG STRIX Z690-F GAMING D4 (DDR4)
  • TUF GAMING Z690-PLUS D4 (DDR4)
  • PRIME Z690-A (DDR5)
  • PRIME Z690-A D4 (DDR4)
  • PRIME Z690M-PLUS D4 (DDR4)
  • PRIME Z690-P (DDR5)
  • PRIME Z690-P D4 (DDR4)
  • PRIME Z690-V (DDR5)
  • PRIME Z690-V D4 (DDR4)
  • PRIME Z690-V-SI-D4 (DDR5)

Starting with the top echelon, we have the ASUS ROG Maximus XIV Z690 motherboards which will target the enthusiast, premium, and high-end segments. The lineup includes ROG Maximus Z690 Extreme, Formula, & HERO motherboards. There's also the ProART Z690-Creator 10G board that is aimed at the content creator segment with features such as 10G LAN, Thunderbolt 3 & workstation GPU support. Also do note that the EEC listing doesn't include the roman numbering scheme for its ROG series anymore. It may be possible that ASUS has decided to ditch that in favor of a stream-lined naming scheme.

Moving on, we have the ROG STRIX lineup which will include Z690-A Gaming, Z690-E Gaming, and Z690-F Gaming motherboards. What's interesting is that these motherboards are listed with a 'D4' extension which could mean that the ROG STRIX lineup may launch in DDR4 variants only with the higher-end ROG Maximus lineup sporting DDR5 memory. We do know that Intel's Alder Lake-S CPU lineup is compliant with both DDR4 and DDR5 memory. The latter won't be as cheap so it might be sensible to include DDR4 support on the more mainstream and entry-level models.

There's the TUF Gaming Z690-PLUS too which comes with DDR4 memory support. Coming over to the PRIME series, we have the Z690-A, Z690-PLUS, Z690-P, Z690-V, and Z690-V SI. Three PRIME Z690 motherboards, A/P/V, will receive both DDR5 and DDR4 variants. Motherboards manufacturers are expected to unveil their new Z690 products by the end of October 2021 with a launch expected in November 2021 alongside the 12th Gen Desktop CPUs.

Leak suggest ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 motherboards will only support DDR5 memory

ASUS Z690 motherboards listed with DDR5 and DDR4 variants

The upcoming ASUS Z690 motherboards featuring LGA1700 socket for Intel Alder Lake CPUs have been listed by the Eurasian Economic Commission regulatory office.

According to the filing, ASUS Z690 ROG Maximus would be exclusively supporting DDR5 memory only. We managed to confirm this with our sources at ASUS. We have also learned that ASUS might be dropping roman numerals for its product ROG Maximus (and possibly Crosshair) motherboards starting from now, which should be more user-friendly.

ASUS Z690 motherboards, Source: EEC

The ROG Maximus Z690 Extreme, expected to be the flagship motherboard for the series, along with FORMULA, Hero, and Apex (which is not listed here) will all use DDR5 memory exclusively. There would apparently be no DDR4 ROG Maximus motherboards for these series.

The same trends continue for the ROG STRIX series, except those would be exclusively using DDR4 memory, at least at launch with the PRIME series offering variants with both DDR4 and DDR5 memory. The PRIME series are considered workstation motherboards by ASUS, which is why the company might want to have more flexibility with their offering in this segment.

The leak does not reveal anything beyond product names or memory support. We are yet to see those motherboards listed by retailers. According to the latest information, they should launch in mid-November.
