Overview

Built to take command , ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha releases the full might of the 32-core AMD Threadripper processor, while keeping thermals under control with intelligent cooling and an SOC heatsink designed especially for the CPU's monstrous power. For high-end gamers and overclockers who equip themselves with ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha , there will be no doubts about who is leader of the pack.  

COOLING

To ensure 32-core processing beasts stays cool, even at stock speeds. The Alpha is fully armed to provide the best foundation for extreme PC systems, enabling higher performance at lower temperatures.

COOLER BY DESIGN

ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha features the most comprehensive cooling options ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.

ROG WATER-COOLING ZONE

ROG Water-Cooling Zone's dual water-temperature headers and flow-rate header feed information straight into the AI Suite utility, so you can keep track of coolant temperatures, and the flow rate of the entire loop.

FAN EXTENSION CARD II

ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha includes our new Fan Extension Card II, which adds six headers that are controllable via FanXpert 4. The card has three temperature-sensor headers to complement the one available onboard and, more importantly, it comes with three thermistors that you can affix to different components. In addition to supplying extra headers for cooling, it has three primed for RGB LED strips.

PERFORMANCE

Every aspect of Alpha to provide the solid foundation needed to create an extreme gaming and workstation system that delivers the highest performance.

POWER DESIGN THAT BUCKS TRENDS 

The monstrous compute power of high core count processors necessitates a power circuit that rapidly responds to massive current swings. And those demands increase exponentially when the CPU is overclocked. Featuring an array of 16 strategically paired power stages, the Alpha's VRM is geared for any workload and all operating conditions.

POWER ARCHITECTURE

Overclocked multi-core processors place incredible loads on the VRM when transitioning between load states. However, conventional motherboard design practices place primary focus on component specs without implementing circuit topologies that provide optimal transient response. The Alpha bucks industry trends by utilising teamed PowIRstages to double the burst current of each phase and rapidly respond to load changes.

DDR4 3600MHZ (O.C.)

With support for DDR4 memory you're able to drive memory frequencies to 3600MHz, ASUS-exclusive circuit design, provides superb memory-overclocking potential, minimising coupling noise and signal reflection to unleash the full power of DDR4. With innovative equidistant memory channels, the ROG design delivers the most balanced control and incredibly powerful overclocking capability. And that's not all: ROG works with almost every DDR4 memory vendor, ensuring the best compatibility.

OPTIMISATION

The Alpha is packed with intuitive and flexible tools that let you optimise every aspect of your system to deliver the performance you want. Take advantage of 5-Way Optimisation for intelligent, automatic overclocking or enjoy full manual control via comprehensive UEFI BIOS settings.

EASY-TO-USE UEFI BIOS

The UEFI BIOS is an early waypoint on any PC-building journey, and Zenith Extreme Alpha offers one of the best in the business.

CONNECTIVITY

Together with customisable audio profiles and tools to optimise storage and networking performance, the Alpha provides the ability to create an expertly tuned machine with minimal effort.

ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha comes equipped with Three M.2 slots to let you take full advantage of AMD StoreMI and NVMe RAID for ultimate SSD storage speeds.

AMD STOREMI

AMD StoreMI technology is a software utility that accelerates any drive for better system responsiveness with reduced startup and software load times. It combines SSD performance with the affordability and capacity of an HDD by automatically moving frequently accessed data to dedicated SSD storage.

CPU RAID

Wired directly to the processor, the lower onboard M.2 slot can be used in chipset-based RAID configurations to improve storage performance or provide a layer of redundancy.

INTEL INTEGRATED ULTRA WI-FI SUPPORT

ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha features Intel Wireless AC-9260 Wi-Fi (802.11ac) with 2x2 MU-MIMO and wide 160MHz channel, for wireless speeds of up to 1.73Gbps.* In fact, the integrated adapter pushes wireless data up to 2X faster than other Wi-Fi solutions — so you'll get fast, smooth transfers, even when your rig is further away from the router. Intel Wireless-AC 9260 also offers Bluetooth 5.0 for connections that are up to 2X faster than ever before, and with up to 4X the range.

* Actual speed varies, and depends on networking conditions.

10GBPS ONBOARD LAN

Designed for the demanding requirements of power users and content creators who push the envelope, 10Gbps onboard LAN plugs you into a new era of home networking. With up to 10X the bandwidth of standard gigabit Ethernet, you'll enjoy streaming uncompressed 4K UHD videos, and backups and file transfers that are faster than ever before. And there's also support for intermediate 2.5Gbps and 5Gbps connectivity, allowing you to step up to faster networks for maximum flexibility. Choose the bandwidth that meets your needs and enjoy ultra-low latency at any speed.

*Minimum Category 6 network cables required for 10Gbps operation. Category 5e cables support up to 5Gbps.

INTEL ETHERNET

ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha features the latest Intel® Ethernet (I211-AT) for faster, smoother gaming. This Intel controller has a natural synergy with Intel processors and chipsets, reducing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput – so there's more power for games and other tasks.

SupremeFX

ROG is renowned for superior onboard audio, and ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha is no exception. The front-panel headphone output features a SABRE9018Q2C integrated DAC/amp capable of reaching -115dB THD+N to provide playback that convey all the subtlety and nuances of the audio track. The improved resolution derived from the ESS Hyperstream™ DAC architecture expands the soundstage to give a better sense of positioning. Beyond resolution, the 121dB DNR provides an extremely low noise-floor, further accentuating dynamics and punch. And, when you want to shift priority to musicality, our Sonic Studio software provides an array of EQ options, allowing the sound signature to be tweaked to suit your cans.
