ASUS mini-ITX ROG Maximus VIII Impact pictured

Fully-packed mini-ITX motherboard

When you talk about small high-end motherboards, the ASUS Republic of Gamers Maximus Impact series is always at top of the list and now we finally have some of the first pictures of the upcoming ASUS ROG Maximus VIII Impact.

Pictured by site, together with a set of BIOS screenshots, the ASUS Republic of Gamers Maximus VIII Impact is definitely the motherboard that we all have been waiting and is a perfect solution for high-end SFF gaming PCs.

Based on Intel's Z170 Express chipset with support for Intel's 6th generation Core Skylake CPUs, the ASUS ROG Maximus VIII Impact will feature two standard DDR4 DIMM memory slots, PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slot and plenty of high-end features, usually found on larger high-end motherboards.

As far as we can see from the posted pictures, the ROG Maximus VIII Impact will have the same vertical VRM PCB as the Maximus VII Impact and will draw power from a combination of a standard 24-pin ATX and 8-pin EPS power connectors. The rest of the features include four SATA 6Gbps ports, SupremeFX Impact III integrated audio, integrated dual-antenna WiFi GO!, plenty of USB ports, gaming Ethernet, debug LED, on-board power, reset and clear CMOS buttons located on the back I/O and plenty of other high-end features.

Unfortunately, we only have a few pictures of the motherboard and the set of BIOS screenshots as it is still unknown when will ASUS officially launch this motherboard. Earlier reports suggested September/October timeframe so hopefully we will see an official announcement soon.
