Computex Taipei, Taiwan — ASUS announced that one of the main highlights of its Computex Taipei 2013 booth is its range of best-selling and award-winning motherboards. The ASUS booth showcases a range of new motherboards in a variety of form factors, each featuring technologies that transform expectations for connectivity, gaming and overclocking. ASUS welcomes members of the media and the public to visit booth M0810 and experience the transformation first-hand.
Transforming connectivity with NFC
The exclusive NFC Express accessory for ASUS motherboards transforms the way people connect to a desktop PC. NFC (Near-Field Communication) means users can log in to a Windows 8 PC simply by tapping against the NFC Express keychain dongle against the receiver, with no need for a keyboard or mouse. Visitors to the ASUS booth will see for themselves how users can easily create multiple profiles to quick-launch favorite apps like Facebook, media players and more.
Transforming gaming and overclocking
Visitors to the ASUS boot can also witness the innovative ROG Maximus VI Formula motherboard with exclusive CrossChill hybrid air and liquid-cooling. A working sample demonstrates the 20 degrees Celsius-lower temperatures achieved by CrossChill compared to traditional air-cooling, and visitors to the ASUS can literally feel the difference.
Also on display is the ROG Maximus VI Impact mini-ITX motherboard that proves small size doesn’t mean fewer features. The Maximus VI Impact is connected to three monitors to demonstrate its graphics performance and visitors can also enjoy crystal-clear 115dB SNR sound from SupremeFX Impact audio with integrated headphone amplifier.
For sheer overclocking excellence, the Maximus VI Extreme motherboard does what its predecessors have been doing for years — breaking world performance records. Using the sophisticated OC Panel console, ROG team members Andre Yang and TL set 10 new performance records with the Maximus VI Extreme at the Intel® Corsair® OC championship at Computex Taipei 2013.
Transforming cool style
ASUS TUF Series motherboards are renowned for their high reliability, rugged design and exclusive thermal management features with ultra-cool operation. Visitors to the ASUS Computex will see how ASUS has taken this further with new features such as TUF Fortifier PCB strengthening. A live demonstration shows the motherboard easily bearing loads heavier even than the largest processor cooler and graphics card combined.
The ATX TUF Sabertooth Z87 and micro-ATX Gryphon Z87 motherboards are also on display, but transformed into beautiful works of art. Visitors to the ASUS booth will see decoratively painted TUF Thermal Armor as the main element in highly personal works from artists depicting PC DIY creativity.
Transforming visuals with 4K Ultra HD
Anyone perusing ASUS motherboards at Computex booth M0180 is in for a treat, as all 2013 models support native 4K Ultra HD video output. With four-times the resolution 1080p Full HD, 4K Ultra HD redefines visual fidelity and ASUS motherboards like the mini-ITX Z87I-Deluxe deliver ultra-crisp, ultra-detailed image quality. Working together with ASUS monitors, including the 31.5-inch PQ321True 4K UHD Monitor with 3840 x 2160 resolution, the effect must be seen to be believed.
