It's not at all unexpected that we start seeing motherboards and features being shown off before a product launch. In the near future, Intel will launch their latest processor code named Haswell if the rumors floating around are accurate, Haswell will rear its head at the beginning of June at Computex. Rumors aside, ASUS has sent over some images and information about their Intel Z87 Motherboard lineup
In addition to the ASUS Maximus VI Extreme and Maximus VI Gene that ASUS will be shipping, they are bringing around a new board in the ROG line-up. The ASUS Maximus VI Hero! The ASUS Maximus VI Hero is meant to bring the ASUS ROG brand to gaming enthusiasts at a more accessible price point. It will be interesting to see where ASUS was able to cut back to reduce the cost while still maintaining the ROG performance.
Apart from the Republic of Gamers line up of Z87 motherboards, ASUS has a plethora of main stream offerings. The top dog in the main stream boards is the Z87 Deluxe. Like the Deluxe predecessors in the Z77 and P67 chipsets the Z87 Deluxe will offer a variety of advanced features and connectivity options. Aside from the Z87-Deluxe, the mainstream line up will include the Z87-Pro, Z87-Plus, and what may be the next board for my mini-ITX System the Z87I-Deluxe
