The new ASUS ROG Rampage VI APEX has a very recognizable shape, there are two bites out of the PCB. As the name implies, this is a high end board with a high end cost; expect to pay north of $400 to pick this board up. You do get some impressive abilities with this board, for instance you can run all four PCIe 3.0 slots at their full 16x bandwidth if you happen to have four GPUs. There are four M.2 slots for your storage in addition to a half dozen SATA ports, with support for Optane and even VROC. If you are looking for a big motherboard which can handle almost any task you need then pop by [H]ard|OCP for their full review.
"ASUS’ purpose built overclocking motherboard stands out as one of the most interesting and provocative motherboards the Republic of Gamers brand has probably ever seen. However, we’ve seen motherboards that opt to specialize in one area lose out in others. We put the Rampage VI APEX to the test and see if its a predator."
