Ist Ihr Rechner zu langsam oder zu alt? Steht eine Generalerneuerung des "Alten" an ist ein neues Mainboard wie das ASUS MAXIMUS VIII IMPACT ein wichtiger, aber auch richtiger Schritt.

Beim Kauf eines Mainboards sollten Sie vor allem beachten dass Ihr PC-Gehäuse genügend Platz bietet. Das ASUS MAXIMUS VIII IMPACT wird im Mini-ITX-Formfaktor gefertigt. Dieser eignet sich vor allem für extrem kompakte Gehäuse und HTPCs. Durch den verwendeten Intel Z170 Chipsatz reiht sich das ASUS MAXIMUS VIII IMPACT bei den High End Mainboards ein und bietet herrvorragende Performance und Stabilität. Wir empfehlen die Verwendung hochwertiger i5 oder i7 Prozessoren der Skylake Serie. Durch den verwendeten Sockel 1151 lässt sich ein Prozessor schnell einbauen.

Durch den verwendeten DDR4 Arbeitsspeicher können Sie mit minimalem Aufwand ein schnelles System zusammenstellen. Auf dem ASUS MAXIMUS VIII IMPACT stehen Ihnen 2 Slots zum Einbau von RAM zur Verfügung. So kann das ASUS MAXIMUS VIII IMPACT bis zu 32 GB RAM verwenden. Zum Arbeiten und Surfen sollten Sie 4 GB RAM verwenden - so läuft der Computer schnell und flüssig. Wenn Sie jedoch leistungsforderde Anwendungen wie Bildbearbeitung, HD-Videos oder aktuelle Spiele verwenden lohnen sich mindestens 8 GB RAM.

Auf dem ASUS MAXIMUS VIII IMPACT steht eine Vielzahl von Anschlüssen bereit um diverse Komponenten einzubauen.
In den vorhandenen PCIe x16 Slot kann eine Grafikkarte eingebaut werden. Dank dem PCI Express Standard 3.0 steht eine besonders hohe Bandbreite zur Verfügung - gerade für Grafikkarten mit PCI Express 3.0 Unterstützung ist das sinnvoll.

Das ASUS MAXIMUS VIII IMPACT bietet Ihnen auch 4 SATA3 Anschlüsse - diese sind durch die hohen Übertragungsraten perfekt für SSDs und schnelle Festplatten geeignet. Der von Asus verbaute Chipsatz unterstützt zudem verschiedene RAID-Modi für die angeschlossenen SATA3-Geräte.

Dank der 6 USB3.0 Anschlüsse kann das ASUS MAXIMUS VIII IMPACT externe Festplatten und USB-Sticks schnell mit großen Datenmengen versorgen. Übrigens: Die USB3.0 Anschlüsse sind blau eingefärbt - so können Sie von den USB2.0 Anschlüssen unterschieden werden.
Mäuse, Tastaturen und viele weitere Geräte können über einen der 6 USB2.0 Anschlüsse angeschlossen werden.
Das ASUS MAXIMUS VIII IMPACT kann über ein gewöhnliches Patchkabel in Ihr vorhandenes Netzwerk eingebunden werden - der GB-LAN-Anschluss macht es möglich. Dank des integerierten WLAN Adapters lässt sich das ASUS MAXIMUS VIII IMPACT auch in drahtlose Netzwerke einbinden oder kann direkt mit Notebooks und Tablets Daten austauschen.

Da das ASUS MAXIMUS VIII IMPACT über einen integrierten Soundchip verfügt benötigen Sie keine separate Soundkarte - wenn Sie jedoch bestmögliche Tonqualität und erweiterte Einstellungsmöglichkeiten wünschen können Sie eine separate Soundkarte in Erwägung ziehen.
