Difference between Asus ROG Strix Z690-E Gaming and Asus ROG MAXIMUS Z690 HERO

Hello,
I want to buy one of these motherboards and I wounder what is the difference between them, I saw that the Hero has more usb's 10GB but in the other hand, the PCIE 5 is on the extension and not on the board, so which is better?
Thanks

The Maximus will allow you to chase higher overclocks since you can see a 6pin PCIe supplemental power delivery next to the 24pin main power input. The Maximus also lacks a PCIe x1 slot since a board of that price point and nature will not be dealing with PCIe cards, instead with a multi GPU setup.

They shouldn't be t he same price either. What are you looking for in your motherboard purchase/build?
