Intel® Ethernet. LANGuard. GameFirst III
This is game networking taken to the next level. This is ROG.

Intel® Ethernet

More Throughput, Less CPU Usage and Great Gaming Experiences!

Maximus VII Gene features the very latest Intel® Ethernet for faster, smoother gaming — always. Intel's LAN has the serious double advantage of reducing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput. This significantly reduces the processor's workload, so there's more power for your game and your gameplay!

ASUS engineers used IxChariot, an independent network-assessment test tool, to determine just how much quicker Intel Gigabit Ethernet deals with the smaller (sub-256 bytes) UDP data packets that are vital for responsive gaming. The results are in — and with Maximus VII Gene your game-data packets flow up to two times (2X) faster than competing gaming-LAN technologies!

LANGuard – RJ45 Reinvented!

Pumped-Up Throughput. Best Surge Protection.

ROG has reinvented the LAN port. Advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounted capacitors improve throughput, while surge-protected and electrostatically-guarded components (ESD Guards) protect your motherboard from lightning strikes and static electricity!
