Asus Maximus 9 Impact ?

Anyone by chance seen if this board exists and is coming out ? I'm going MATX and would love to get the updated version of the Asus Maximus VIII Impact for Kabylake.

Well mini ITX

But yes I'm going small form factor, I don't need a big case/rig anymore, 1 PCI-E slot, An M.2 slot and 1 x SATA is all I need

The Strix is the only board on the road map now. and considering that was £200 they would need to charge £250 for an impact.

I think ROG this time around was the full retard boards and Strix became the Ranger and Impact end of things....

Anyways quick answer. Nothing in sight atm (and I asked again today just to make sure)

Saw the Strix and was thinking if there was going to be a new Impact, shame if there isn't but TBH, do we really need the IX over the VIII?

I was going to get the VIII, even got a shiny block for it lol, shame if I don't, still using one of the older iterations, happily too.

The Strix does look nice though.

Dice, will you ever be happy, really happy?

Look forward to your new build man!

I'm happy with my build now but it's just too big for transport, I want to take it on in cabin luggage to make sure it doesn't get banged around and would be a hell of a lot easier with an MATX rig
