ASUS announced numerous new motherboards for Intel® 12th Gen and 13th Gen processors, in particular more ROG STRIX Z790 models and brand-new ROG STRIX B760 Motherboards.
Late in 2022, ASUS launched a cutting-edge Z790 motherboard platform. Built to handle the most potent 13th Gen Intel® Core™ CPUs, these boards serve the needs of PC enthusiasts, extreme overclockers, demanding gamers and professional creators alike. Today, ASUS is expanding the motherboard family with new Z790 models and several more options that feature Intel B760 chipsets. These bring the latest Intel chips to a wider audience than ever before. At the high end, ASUS is taking the wraps off the new ROG Strix and ASUS Prime Z790 motherboards, and it is also helping everyday builders move beyond boundaries with a wide selection of B760 motherboards from the ROG Strix, TUF Gaming, ProArt and Prime product families.

New ways to beat the heat
Alongside new motherboard options, ASUS is also debuting a BIOS feature that gives users an easy way to unleash the power of their new 13th Gen Intel CPU while putting a lid on temperatures. Users of last-gen ASUS boards might be familiar with the ASUS MultiCore Enhancement and ASUS Performance Enhancement features. These BIOS options allowed users with exceptional cooling systems to let their CPU boost beyond stock settings. Now, ASUS is adding a new option to both menus.
As with the existing modes, the new options remove the limits holding back CPU boosting behavior, but they also impose a CPU temperature limit of 90°C. This gives users outstanding multicore performance, but with restrained thermals. Even with the temperature restriction, ASUS MultiCore Enhancement and ASUS Performance Enhancement remain powerful tools for increasing performance. ASUS engineers tested these two MultiCore Enhancement settings with an Intel Core i9-13900K CPU, and they observed that the new setting can reduce CPU temperatures by a full 10°C while offering broadly similar performance. The new mode results in only a 2.8% performance drop compared to the earlier version while offering the significant cooling benefit.
This new ASUS MultiCore Enhancement option will be available to users of all overclocking-ready ASUS Z790 motherboards, and the similar ASUS Performance Enhancement option will debut in ASUS H770 and B760 motherboards. Existing owners will be able to access the new feature through a BIOS update.

For a new just-the-right-size PC, ASUS offers the ROG Strix B760-G Gaming WiFi D4. Users get a PCIe 5.0 x16 slot and a PCIe 4.0 x16 slot for graphics cards and expansion cards. Two PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots let users build a spacious and speedy storage array for their gaming library. An Intel 2.5 Gb Ethernet port provides a high-bandwidth gateway for online gaming, while an Intel WiFi 6E radio offers convenient wireless connectivity.
If users desire the compactness of a mini-ITX motherboard to suit their needs, ASUS also offers the ROG Strix B760-I Gaming WiFi. Most people could hold this model comfortably in the palm of one hand, yet this board harnesses brute horsepower. Give this motherboard a potent 13th Gen Intel CPU, a pair of high-bandwidth DDR5 sticks, two speedy PCIe 4.0 SSDs and a cutting-edge graphics card in its PCIe 5.0 x16 slot, and you have a high-caliber gaming PC that will go pound-for-pound with today’s consoles and fastest gaming PCs.
