It's primed to unleash the full force of the latest 3rd Gen Ryzen Threadripper processors, while keeping thermals in check with a comprehensive cooling solution. Maximized lane bandwidth lets you connect up to 33 devices simultaneously, while every single PCIe x16 and M.2 slot is wired with PCIe 4.0 – so you're free to equip next-gen graphics cards or NVMe drives without fear of bottlenecks. Massive power, massive bandwidth.               Performance   Power Solution   Teamed Power Architecture Modern CPU architectures up the ante for motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power saving modes to full load almost instantaneously. Our latest VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.     A brief History We became the first manufacturer to implement phase-doublers when we shipped our A8N32-SLI Deluxe motherboard, back in 2005. The board's VRM was lauded for elegantly overcoming the power handling capabilities of components that were available at the time and also reducing voltage ripple. Those benefits led to phase-doublers becoming universally accepted in the industry, and they are still used for similar purposes today.     A shift in CPU demands However, the current crop of CPUs pack more cores than their predecessors, and the latest instruction sets allow them to crunch computationally-dense workloads at an incredible pace. As an added bonus, they also consume less power at idle and can transition between loads states much more quickly. These improvements necessitate a re-evaluation of power-design priorities because phase-doublers add a propagation delay that hampers transient response.     Bucking the trend Fortunately, the latest integrated power components can handle higher currents than the devices of yesteryear, making it possible to implement a simple circuit topology that isn't hamstrung by the processing lag of phase-doublers. That's why ROG Zenith II Extreme utilizes teamed power stages to deliver higher burst current per phase, while maintaining the thermal performance of phase-doubled designs.     Thermal performance Each VRM component serves a specific purpose. PWM controllers and phase-doublers control the circuit, and the power stages do the heavy lifting from an electrical and thermal standpoint. That's why ROG Zenith II Extreme utilizes 16 Infineon TDA21
