The Asus Z390 Maximus XI Hero Motherboard replaces Intel's Z370 chipset for their range of high-end 8th generation processors. Additionally, Z390 motherboards support Intel's new ninth Gen Core series processors (Coffee Lake-S refresh). Also introduced are features like chip-side WiFi support - although a WiFi module must still be present - as well as native USB 3.1 support, meaning that these abilities no longer need to be provided by additional chips.
