Introduction and Specifications:

The Maximus VI Extreme features the Z87 chipset along with all its goodies. There are a few important new additions, the first is Flexible I/O where manufacturers can trade PCI-E lanes for USB 3.0 and SATA 3.0. The iGP outputs (all except d-SUB output) were also moved to the CPU instead of the PCH and new overclocking features were added into the mix. There were also a few other additions such as faster BIOS communication support as well as enhancements to the integrated Intel GBT MAC.
