[Officia]l ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z68 & Z68(Gen3) Owners Club - Page 584

post #5831 of 7108
Quick question...what's the boot menu button on the Gene-Z/Gen3? I keep having to go into the BIOS and selecting my USB drive manually to boot into it...and it's kind of a pain.

Just found out about a possible ROG USB Flashback feature on this board?

Anyone know if that's on the Gen3?

Also, I found a website that states the Gen3 has a dual BIOS feature.

Is that true? Where can I learn more?

No usb flashback on the gen3, as far as I know. Missing the ROG link button that activates it (which makes an appearance on the maximus V so maybe it will then!)

Dual Bios is on the extreme, not gene-z.

Haven't seen a full list of differences, but here are a handful that I inferred from looking at these two pages:

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/Maximus_IV_GENEZ/
http://rog.asus.com/motherboard/gene/maximus-v-gene/

  • Z77 instead of Z68
  • Supports Intel 22 nm CPU
  • mini-PCIe riser card, in which you can drop a WiFi card, SSD, or other accessory card.
  • SupremeFX 3 audio instead of 2.
  • ...and a bunch of port differences

The m-pcie slot adapter was the coolest thing I thought about the changes, If I didnt have my usb wifi adapter already I would say it might have been worth upgrading lol, other than that so long as z68 ends up supporting ivy I probably wont upgrade
