We're hearing about the new As-You-Wish motherboard range by ASUS by French outlet, Overclocking.com, with the new ASUS Z790-AYW WIFI motherboard shown off at Computex 2024 earlier this month. At the time, the board had two DIMM slots, which was a cut-down version of the full board.

The new ASUS Z790-AYW OC WIFI "PRIME" motherboard has an Intel LGA1700 socket, with the OC model of the motherboard featuring two DIMM slots that support DDR5-8400+ (OC) memory. ASUS has managed to deal with the dual-channel memory more efficiently, which provides some insane 11550MT/s memory speeds (by reducing the DIMM slots, and using exotic LN2 cooling, of course).

Overclocking.com's source says that ASUS is responding directly to MSI's recent Z790 MPOWER motherboard, which provides kick-ass overclocking abilities without a huge price tag. MSI used a dual-DIMM slot configuration for optimal memory and OC support, so now we're seeing ASUS follow through with its new Z790-AYW motherboard.

South Korean overclocker "SAFEDISK" has also mentioned the huge overclocking capabilities with DDR5 on this new motherboard, in a post on Facebook that you can scope below:

We don't know what to expect in terms of pricing of the ASUS Z790-AYW WIFI OC motherboard, but with MSI pricing its Z790 MPOWER motherboard at $199, we should expect ASUS to nail the $200 to $250 price for its new Z790-AYW WIFI OC motherboard.
