ASRock Z87 Line-Up Surfaces: Z87 OC Formula, Z87 Extreme11 and Z87 Professional

One day after the ASUS Z87 (accidental) leak, we now also get pretty much a full line-up of ASRock. The list of motherboard names holds very little surprises, except for maybe the confirmation of a micro-ATX OC Formula and the weird /ac-suffix for motherboards with an onboard 802.11 ac WLAN controller. In general, there are three lines: mainstream, gaming and overclocking. Each of the lines have their own specific top-of-the-line board.

For gaming we have the Z87 Professional, a board that follows the Fatal1ty black and red color scheme and a bunch of features for, well, gamers. The mainstream line-up will feature another Extreme11 motherboard, which will probably be a board featuring everything ASRock can fit on a single PCB. There are no pictures yet, but I imagine it to be beastly. Last but not least (and in fact most importantly!), the Z87 OC Formula series feature two boards: the plain full ATX version and a mini "GeneZ"-ish Z87M OC Formula. Interesting to see ASRock go for the -M suffix rather than opt for a totally different marketing name like ASUS did with the Gene and GeneZ.

Looking forward to see how they stack up against the other Z87 motherboards!

Z87M OC Formula seems pretty interesting!
