ASUS officially introduces the ROG Dominus Extreme LGA 3647 socket motherboard and the new Prime X299-Deluxe II motherboard. Both motherboards are for the updated Intel Core-X Series processors that offer more cores thus better performance on CPU-intensive applications. Along with the new motherboard is a new BIOS update for the existing ASUS X299 motherboards to support the recently released 18-core Intel Core i9-9980XE high-end desktop platform processor. The ASUS Prime X299-Deluxe II gives professionals and power users flexible build options for a powerful workstation. The ROG Dominus Extreme, on the other hand, redefines performance motherboard capabilities with industry-leading 32-power phase efficiency for extreme overclocking.
