Asustek Computer has announced the Maximus VI Impact, a mini-ITX gaming motherboard based on Intel Z87 chipset for the latest fourth-generation Intel Core processors.

The Maximus VI Impact features the SupremeFX Impact discrete sound card for 115dB SNR audio and Impact Power digital power-management technology for the same overclocking control as ROG full-size ATX motherboards. The Maximus VI Impact also features connectivity with onboard 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.

The ROG Maximus VI Impact features the SupremeFX Impact discrete sound card with a custom design that keeps the PCI Express x16 slot free. The dual-differential circuit design splits the audio chip's analog signal into opposing phases that are combined by four operational amplifiers (op-amps) to produce a single, stronger and cleaner output, while ELNA audio capacitors help provide smooth high and low-frequency signals to deliver warmer sounds.

The Maximus VI Impact also features Perfect Voice technology that uses active noise cancellation on the microphone input to keep VoIP chat clear in noisy environments, and Music PnP technology that allows external sound sources to play through PC speakers when the PC is shut down. Together with SupremeFX Shielding that reduces audio distortion from electromagnetic interference, lossless 115dB output and the ability to drive high-impedance headphones (up to 600ohms).
