Water cooling and air cooling at same time

ASUS
ASUS has unveiled their ROG GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Poseidon graphics card, which is - apparently - based on the new flagship chip from NVIDIA. Like the previous model it features a water cooling block as well as a heatsink with a dense aluminum fin stack and several heatpipes.

With new BIOS update

ASUS
Intel Optane Memory devices are now compatible with ASUS 200-series motherboards. In the beginning we will only see 16GB or 32GB M.2 caching devices. This new memory type can be used to speed up both SSDs and HDDs. Although it will be only compatible with desktop systems, we might soon find such caching devices in notebooks and mid-range PCs as well.

Still no word on the GTX 1070

ASUS
During the last GDC, NVIDIA announced the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and also the upcoming release of faster GTX 1060 and 1080 graphics cards. According to them, companies like MSI, Gigabyte or ASUS can create variations of the GeForce GTX 1060 and GTX 1080 with faster memory than the reference designs.

Sub 250 dollars

ASUS
ASUS has expanded its gaming monitor lineup with a new monitor featuring a 24-inch TN panel and 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. The VG245Q is a value gaming monitor with a price below $250 US. The display supports AMD’s FreeSync technology. Furthermore the solid base allows forl adjustments.

Soon available

ASUS
A few days ago, ASUS has presented two graphics cards which are based on the new flagship chip - GP102 - from NVIDIA. While there are still no details available on the GTX 1080 Ti Turbo, the ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1080 Ti has meanwhile been outlined with pictures.

ASUS
Looking at the Z270 line-up from ASUS quite a few things have change compared to the past. There is for example the new "Code" and there is even a model specifically targeting extreme overclockers which goes by the name "Apex". During the launch, ASUS unveiled three models and now, a little later, they’re showing the new ROG Maximus IX Extreme.

ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and TURBO

ASUS
ASUS has launched two new graphics cards which are based on the new flagship chip from NVIDIA. Right after the announcement of the new GTX 1080 Ti, manufacturers like ASUS have already shown their custom models. The ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1080 Ti should be the new high-end model from ASUS while the GTX 1080 Ti TURBO is a more budget-oriented graphics card.

On ASUS Crosshair VI Hero motherboard

ASUS
AMD has posted a picture on Twitter of a Ryzen 7 1700 microprocessor running with 16GB of G.Skill 3400MHz DDR4 memory. In past days we have come across many rumors about Ryzen supporting high-speed DDR4 memory. This screenshot finally seems to prove that the IMC of the new AMD chips can perfom. On another note it’s interesting to see that a Ryzen 7 1700 has been used, which apparently is a non-”X” model.

Both based on B350 chipset

ASUS
A few days ago ASUS has unveiled two new AMD AM4 300-series motherboards. As we already mentioned a few times, the X370 chipset is followed by the B350 and then the A320. While the first addresses the mid-range market the latter targets the entry-level segment. As a result of that the B350 chipset still allows for overclocking while the A320 doesn’t.

On KWASTEK YouTube channel

ASUS
During AMD’s Meet the Experts webinar, ASUS has unveiled several details on their upcoming socket AMD AM4 300-series motherboards. Thanks to a video from Sean of KWASTEK, we can finally see more details on the upcoming ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero motherboard.

With PLX chip

ASUS
The Z270-WS from ASUS is a high-end motherboard that comes with a few interesting features. Compared to the previous model, which goes by the name Z170-WS, we see a similar color scheme but a reworked layout and more connectors. This motherboard is designed for workstation or content creation system, in other words the feature set will be a bit different from what we’re seeing on Maximus and Strix series boards.

Both based on AMD X370 chipset

ASUS
During AMD’s Meet the Experts webinar yesterday evening, ASUS has unveiled several details on their upcoming AMD AM4 300-series motherboards. Although ASUS only showcased two motherboards both are based the X370 chipset, but apparently they will also release B350 and A320 based products as well. Compared to the old motherboards based on AM3+ or FM2+ we can definitely tell there are several significant upgrades in terms of design and features.

Budget optimized GTX 1070

ASUS
ASUS already has a wide portfolio when it comes to graphics cards but that didn’t stop them from launching yet another model. The new card belongs to the Expedition series and it is supposed to deliver solid performance at a competitive price point.

Designed for extreme overclockers

ASUS
Looking at the Z270 line-up from ASUS quite a few things have change compared to the past. There is for example the new "Code" and there is even a model specifically targeting extreme overclockers, which goes by the name "Apex". Up until now there has been a lot of guess work going on whether the Maximus IX Apex is really going to be available to the public or not, since when other vendors launched motherboards, which were basically only for extreme overclocking it was more of a marketing stunt.

With built-in wireless charging

ASUS
ASUS has expanded its curved monitor lineup with a new monitor which features a 37.5-inch panel and 3840 x 1600 resolution at a 21:9 aspect ratio. The ultra-wide IPS panel has a 2300R curvature. Furthermore the solid base comes with a built-in Qi wireless charging pad with a max output of 5W/1A.

ROG Strix design

ASUS
With their Pascal-based GTX 10-series graphics cards, Nvidia released their new high-bandwidth SLI Bridges. Compared to the first generation of SLI bridges, those new ones offer twice the bandwidth. Meanwhile ASUS has announced that they’re updated their own ROG bridges so they also support the doubled bandwidth.

New heatsink design

ASUS
Looking at the Z270 line-up from ASUS a few things have change compared to the past generation. Although the layout is still quite similar compared to the Maximus VIII Hero, the same can’t be said for the design.

Upgrade on the storage side

ASUS
So far the ASUS Maximus IX line-up consists of five motherboards and two of them are completely new models. Apparently the Maximus IX Formula is the successor of the Maximus VIII Formula and therefore not a new but an upgraded model. At a first glance not much has changed, so we have to look for details to see what has happened.

With armor but no water cooling

ASUS
Looking at the Z270 line-up from ASUS quite a few things have change compared to the past and one of those things is that with the “Code”, there is a completely new model. While it basically looks like the Maximus IX Formula there are a few features missing, like for example the VRM water cooling block.

STRIX, TUF and standard series

ASUS
In addition to the Z270 motherboards that will be a part of the Maximus IX lineup and carry the Republic of Gamers badge, we get to check out ASUS' Z270 motherboards that are part of STRIX, TUF and standard edition series.
