Designed to show off the best Asus has to offer, the ROG Z690 Extreme and Extreme Glacial sport an impressive array of hardware and a long list of features, including PCIe 5.0 x4 socket (with five total M.2s), premium flagship audio, Thunderbolt 4, and robust power delivery. But priced at $1,099 and $1,999, you’ll need very deep pockets to fulfill your motherboard dreams.

"Designed to show off the best Asus has to offer" yeah... of course with that crazy price tag on it !

and at the same time, the entry level z690 are complete joke, audio chipset from 10years ago, no usb-c front panel, no wifi, very little fan headers, anemic rear io panel :ROFLMAO:

Crossfire does not need to be mentioned as it works on anything with at least 4 PCIe lanes per slot. A tech writer should know that.

Looking at these flagship/halo-class MB’s is like a dream for the man on the street like me. Unreachable! A nice thought too behold while driving my forklift at Walmart on the third-shift. I also wonder how the Z690 Hero MB would compare or make sense at basically half the price. Then again with the next-gen MB’s now being pretty easy to wait for, some savvy or ‘must have’ enthusiasts' will surely be attracted buying one of these once a decent price cut will be proffered sometime later in November. Out with the old and in with the new! Thoughts?

Related MB Stuff: I noticed that the Z690 Asus Hero (12th Gen MB) is seemingly in short supply and not even sold on Amazon. Newegg today seems to be the only major supplier? But we all know that 'Gamers Nexus' recently reported that Newegg found itself embroiled in a broad RMA controversy, which could make you think twice before sending money to the company. Asus meanwhile started a major ‘Hero’ recall due to a production error involving a reversed memory capacitor. But with the Asus Hero recall having started around December of last year, I have not heard on any progress or updated commentaries on the matter. Not even from Asus directly! Are many defective Hero’s are still languishing on the shelves and the fixed or revised Hero’s are simply not available in quantities? Or is Asus downplaying the Z690 Hero in view of the fact that the new 13th generation MB's are soon to arrive in the fall? WTF?
