It looks like its Z87 reveal day today! We just showed you MSI’s Z87 MPower overclocking motherboards and now we have the scoop on ASUS’s upcoming Z87 Republic of Gamers Motherboard Series. If you remember we already revealed ASUS’s Z87 Motherboards, but now it is official. These boards are part of the Overclocking line and include the Maximus VI Extreme, Maximus VI Hero and Maximus VI GeneZ.
Another photo of the packaging for the upcoming GeForce GTX 780 has been leaked by WCCFTech. Just yesterday we showed you Inno3D’s GeForce GTX 780 packaging and now today we have ASUS’s. Read on to take a look…
Want to extend your Wi-Fi range? Why not go for the dual band RP-N53 W-Fi range extender? The new range extender, announced today by ASUS uses strong internal antennas to provide its users with a wide coverage area. This N53 enables users to have a sound and a stable access to network access. The most amazing feature is that it can be used in multiple-floor buildings promising to give good network signals. The N53 can be used at home or an office. It can be kept in the backyard, the roof or as discussed before, on any floor.
ASUS has been pretty quiet when it comes to their Z87 motherboards as other manufactuers have been teasing their boards the past couple of weeks. Well the wait is over and we are not just teasing ASUS’s Z87 motherboards we have photos and information on ASUS’s entire lineup of Z87 motherboards! Read on as this is quite a large post!
ASUS is readying their first enthusiast solid state drive, the ROG RAIDR. The RAIDR is a PCI-Express solid state drive that uses two SandForce SF2281 driven SSD drives stripped in a RAID 0 configuration. Each solid state drive uses 19 nm MLC flash NAND chips. A few photos of the drive and spec sheets were posted on SweClockers. The drives both sport a pretty cool EMI shield and backplate.
ASUS has just announced their new Xonar U7 USB Soundcard and Headphone Amplifier. It offers users powerful and clear 114dB SNR audio, with an included headphone amplifier, Dolby Home Theater v4 support, plus dedicated microphone and volume controls. It has the convenience of being able to be connected via USB so it requires no standalone power supply and works instantly setup-free with no need to open your system up.
It seems ASUS is working on a variant of their Republic of Gamers Rampage IV Extreme motherboard. This board is made for people who may be tired of the red / black scheme on Republic of Gamers boards. The Rampage IV Extreme Black as you can guess has all an all black appearance, with a few grey accents here and there. Besides the color changes it is pretty much identical to the original board.
ASUS has officially launched their GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini. If you have been following our coverage of the card you know it is designed specifically for small form factor PC’s with mini ITX motherboards. The card only measures 17cm in length as compared to the reference size of the GTX 670 which is 24.13cm. The card is the exact length of a mini ITX motherboard. This means your mini ITX system can have the power of a GeForce GTX 670 without sacrificing space.
Workstation motherboards are made for some pretty intense tasks. With ASUS’s new P9X79-E WS motherboard you sure will be able to do a lot! The thing that really sets this board apart from others is that it has seven PCI Express 3.0 slots. So if you choose you are able to install seven single-slot cards or four dual-slot cards. The large number of PCI Express slots is great for users who have PCI Express-based video capture, RAID, and SSD storage components.
It is not often we see announcements regarding external DVD writers. Optical media is much less popular as it was even a few years ago. Well ASUS has a new External DVD writer in their SDRW-08U5S-U. This portable optical drive is the thinnest form factor in its class at 13mm. There is a hidden stand that allows you to have the drive in either horizontal or vertical placement. The drive will be available in Mellow Metallic, Dusty Rose, and Bright Berry color options.
