ASUS Announces Motherboard For 'Republic Of Gamers' Series
ASUSTeK Computer Inc. debuted an all-new product series, Republic of Gamers (R.O.G). As the name suggests, all R.O.G products are made to provide the best performing solutions for serious gamers and overclockers. The inaugural solution of R.O.G is the Crosshair motherboard, which implements convenient features for system tweaking to provide players and overclockers with a solution to build their power gaming systems.
The motherboard has the LCD Poster feature that, located at the back I/O, displays the names of each boot-process instead of using codes. When system hangs due to faulty connection or configuration, the LCD Poster will freeze on the displayed process name that caused the hang up, allowing users to know exactly what needs to be fixed.
Other features tailored for building a PC are EL I/O, onboard LED, onboard switches, Q-Fan Plus and Q-Connector.
The board is based on 8-Phase EL Cap-less Power design which removes the bulky cylinder-type capacitors and replaces them with chip-style polymer aluminum electrolyte capacitors, which are used in server level systems, for better spacing and thermal environment. The so called 8-phase design generates less heat than conventional power solutions and providing a cool computing environment for stable performance and higher overclocking margin. It reduces input ripple current and output ripple voltage, preventing the CPU and power modules from the risk of high power stress.
The Crosshair also comes with the EL I/O, a feature that simplifies connecting devices by lighting up the back I/O panel for convenient connection in dark environments such as LAN Parties.
Speaking of audio, there's SupremeFX integrated onboard with 24bit/192kHz full sampling in all surround channels. It's also supplemented with the bundled array microphone.
Other specifications include:
- AMD Socket AM2 processors
- NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI MCP chipset
- DDR2-800/667/533, dual-channel
- 2 x PCIe x16, SLI
- 8 x SATA 3Gbps
- 1 x UDMA
- 2 x Gigabit LAN
- SupremeFX audio on ADI 1988b High-Definition Audio codec with a dedicated interface panel
