ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha
ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha is locked, loaded and ready to unleash the savage computing power of the groundbreaking 64-core AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPUs. Freshly equipped with 16 high-current 90A power stages our new goliath delivers supreme efficiency and enhanced headroom for overclocking, empowering you to push performance as never before. Maximized lane bandwidth lets you connect up to 33 devices simultaneously, while every single PCIe x16 and M.2 slot is wired with PCIe¬Æ 4.0 - so you're free to equip next-gen graphics cards or NVMe drives without fear of bottlenecks. Massive power, massive bandwidth.
High-end desktop processors have greater power requirements due to the abundance of cores and memory channels. The latest Threadripper evolutions are particularly demanding, so intelligent VRM design and quality components are vital - especially for overclocked CPUs that live closer to the edge of stability. Accompanied with our critically-acclaimed UEFI and AI Suite tuning utility, ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha offers an accessible range of manual tweaking tools, plus a highly-configurable auto-tuner that maximizes system control and performance with no expert knowledge required.
Teamed Power Architecture
Modern CPU architectures up the ante for motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power-saving modes to full load almost instantaneously. Our latest VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.
We became the first manufacturer to implement phase-doublers when we shipped our A8N32-SLI Deluxe motherboard, back in 2005. The board's VRM was lauded for elegantly overcoming the power handling capabilities of components that were available at the time and also reducing voltage ripple. Those benefits led to phase-doublers becoming universally accepted in the industry, and they are still used for similar purposes today.
