When Intel introduced their Z87 Chipset almost one year ago, ASUS decided to round-off the lower end of their Maximus portfolio with the Maximus VI Hero. Meanwhile Intel has launched the Z97 chipset and they're again expanding their ROG lineup by another entry level model. This time the board is called Maximus VII Ranger and the new model marks the entry into ASUS's ROG class. With this board the worlds largest motherboard maker is targeting mainly gamers and therefore there should be quite a few interesting features.
The Maximus VII Ranger from ASUS
is the most affordable ROG board you can get, at least when it comes to Intel's latest Z97
Express chipset. With an appealing feature mix as well as an attractive price, ASUS is trying to conquer
many hearts, especially those of gamers.
