ASUS ROG has officially launched their RAIDR Express PCI Express-based solid state drive. We first talked about the RAIDR back in April and now it is here! It is the first PCI Express-based solid state drive with a DuoMode feature which allows it to work with legacy or modern UEFI BIOS. ASUS has aimed the RAIDR Express at hardcore gamers and PC enthusiasts who want a faster and more reliable experience.
ASUS is considered to be the world’s first producer to expose their FM2+ motherboards lineup for the next generation of Kaveri APUs. The new FM2+ motherboards from ASUS include the A88XM-A and A55BM-A motherboards which include the FM2+ socket to support AMD’s current and soon to come generation of APUs.
ASUS has revealed their Z87-C, the first ever motherboard in the world which is based on Z87 chipset that has been honored with Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL) certification for Windows 8.1. WHQL certification is the check of Microsoft that both the hardware and software of a component or device are reliable; basically it’s the verification from Microsoft that devices are totally compatible with a particular version of Windows. In this instance, the version of Windows that has to be authenticated is Windows 8.1.
Now this is one wide monitor! ASUS has announced the Designo Series MX299Q Ultrawide 21:9 Cinematic Monitor. It is a 29-inch widescreen display with an ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio and 2560 x 1080 resolution. It features the latest LED-backlit AH-IPS display for vibrant color and 178-degree wide viewing angles. The display also has ASUS’s SonicMaster audio, which was co-developed with Bang & Olufsen
ASUS has released its top of the line GeForce GTX 780 graphics card in its GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC. This card features NVIDIA’s GK110-300 core, has 2304 CUDA cores, 3 GB of GDDR5 memory and has a engine clock of 941 MHz. The card features an ASUS designed PCB and an all new DirectCU II cooling system.
ASUS has just announced that you will be able to pre-order their highly anticipated PQ321Q True 4K UHD monitor. Pre-orders will be able to be taken through Newegg, Amazon or TigerDirect at an introductory MSRP of $3,499. The ASUS PQ321Q True 4K UHD monitor has a stunning Ultra HD resolution of 3840 x 2160, which is basically like having four Full HD displays combined.
NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 760 is set to launch tomorrow, but ahead of launch many non-reference models have been leaked. These models come from MSI, ASUS, Inno3D, Colorful, Zotac and Gigabyte! Many people are excited for these cards as they are targeted at users who want great gaming performance without breaking their wallet.
For quite a while now ASUS’s Republic of Gamers (ROG) motherboards have been the top of the line motherboards which offer very high-end and unique hardware and software features. For this reason they are a top choice of many enthusiasts and gamers. The one thing that keeps these boards out of the hands of many people is the price tag. The top of the line Maximus VI Extreme is currently selling for $399.99, which is quite a lot to just pay for a motherboard. ASUS knows that and wanted to give people the chance to get their hands on a Republic of Gamers board. That is where the Maximus VI Hero comes in, at just $229.99 it will still give you many of the same ROG features without some of the more “Extreme” ones that you may not use. This motherboard is designed for Intel’s latest 4th generation Haswell Core processors using the LGA1150 socket. Read on as we take this motherboard for a spin and see what all it has to offer.
ASUS today launched their 15.6-inch touch-enabled Ultrabook called the ViviBook S551. The device is powered by the competent NVIDIA GT 740M graphic processing unit which provides ample power for every application and side by side also includes Intel’s 4th generation Haswell based core processor. What a combination! We must say. With the mobile NVIDIA GT 740M it does not compromise on power and performance at all while taking care of the heat dissipation as well(important in case of thin UltraBooks).
NVIDIA’s upcoming GeForce GTX 760 is rumored to be announced very soon and we have seen some early pictures and listings of the card that show us just some of the models that will be released by AiB partners. These models include the Galaxy’s GeForce GTX 760 GC, MSI’s GeForce GTX 760 Gaming Edition, and ASUS’s GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU II OC.
