If there is a motherboard this year, which makes each and every enthusiast, gamer or even overclocker look closer, than it's the Maximus VIII Impact from ASUS' ROG department. After having set a new trend for mini-ITX gaming with their P8Z77-I Deluxe, ASUS now brings this form factor to the next level - yet again - by releasing this feature packed and powerful mini-ITX board. Next to a powerful VRM design and an additional sound module, there are plenty of other features and obviously, we're going to show them all to you.
When ASUS released the first Impact motherboard, the company showed what's possible with a mini ITX motherboard. ASUS has been making and improving the Impact for three years now and the Maximus VIII Impact packs more features than ever on the tiny 17 x 17cm PCB.
