Last week we unveiled ASUS’s latest X79 Motherboard for Intel’s Ivy Bridge-E processors the X79 Deluxe. When we posted that article not much was know about the board, we just had to go on the photos that were leaked. Well our friends over at The Tech Report got their hands on the board for a full review so we have much more detail on this high-end board!
The Transformer Book Trio, based on the two world famous operating systems of Windows and Android, has finally been announced by ASUS and is expected to enter the markets soon enough. The machine providing super portability can be used as a tablet and a laptop at the same time by more than one person. This has been made possible with the two part dock-able design which brings together the portable tablet and the laptop. The dock of the Transformer book trio can be used as a normal PC station once a monitor has been attached to its head while the other part can be used as a tablet.
ASUS’s latest upcoming X79 motherboard has been unveiled, it is the X79 Deluxe. It will feature improved components and support for the upcoming Intel Ivy Bridge-E processors. Ivy Bridge-E processors are backwards compatible with all socket 2011 motherboards via a BIOS update, but that does not mean companies will not come out with new boards.
We got our first looks at a DirectCU Mini card in the form of ASUS’s GTX 760 DirectCU Mini back at CeBIT 2013. The whole point of the card was to offer a compact version over the normal reference versions and ASUS’s other DirectCU cards. ASUS will soon be updating the line with the GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU Mini. This card will feature the same design, but is powered by a refined GeForce 700 series architecture.
ASUS has just announced a new motherboard in the Z87 Deluxe Quad. This is the world’s first motherboard certified by Intel with Thunderbolt 2 technology. This board has two Thunderbolt 2 ports which allow for 12 simultaneously connected devices. Each port is capable of up to a 20 Gbit/s transfer rate and is backwards compatible with the first generation of Thunderbolt.
ASUS has just announced their entire series of H81 chipset Haswell motherboards. The lineup includes six boards: H81M-Plus, H81M-A, H81M-C and H81M-E Micro-ATX motherboards, and the H81I-Plus Mini-ITX (from left to right in the photo below). All of these models feature a single PCI-Express x16 slot, two DDR3 DIMM slots, and two SATA III slots along with ASUS’s latest UEFI BIOS, Realtek 7.1 audio and USB 3.0.
A leaked press shot has brought forward the rumor that ASUS will be expanding VivoBook series with 10.1 inch VivoBook X102BA laptop. The information has come forward from a SweClockers who also managed to get their hands on the specs of this device. If rumors turn out to be real, then the notebook shall release in September.
Seems like ASUS has a lot to offer, firstly the launch of Nexus 7 second gen and then the upgraded FonePad, ASUS has been pretty much in the top gear. For your interest, one more ASUS FonePad has been pronounced online, along with its specs. The information is accompanied by two other devices from the same Taiwanese manufacturer.
ASUS’s Sabertooth motherboards have been a big hit since they were introduced, so there was no doubt there would be a Z87 Sabertooth with ASUS’s new line of Z87 motherboards. This board is of course built on the LGA1150 socket and supports Intel’s Fourth Generation Core Haswell processors. The Z87 Sabertooth still keeps the cool Thermal Armor that everyone loves, but adds on to it with the TUF Fortifier backplate. In addition to that you have things like the Thermal Radar 2, Flow Valve and Dust Defender. For those wondering about specifics this board features two PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots (x16 and x8 electrical), a single PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot (x4 electrical) and three PCI Express 2.0 x1 slots. There are 4 DIMM slots with memory support of up to 32 GB of DDR3 memory, eight SATA 6GB/s ports, 4 USB 3.0 ports and a plethora of other connections. Read on as we take a look.
ASUS has another Ultra Wide monitor on their hands. The last one we talked about was the Designo Series MX299Q which is a 29-inch display. The PB298Q which we are talking about today is also a 29-inch display that features an Ultra Wide 21:9 aspect ratio with a resolution of 2560 x 1080.
