Post ASUS Unveils Full Range of 9 Series Motherboards

ASUS announced a complete lineup of motherboards built around the Intel 9 Series chipset that features the LGA 1150 socket and supports Intel 4th, New 4th, and 5th-generation Core processors (codenamed Haswell, Haswell Refresh, Haswell Refresh K-series / Devilís Canyon). These new motherboard offerings from ASUS-branded, Republic of Gamers (ROG), The Ultimate Force (TUF), and Workstation (WS) Series feature exclusive technologies that maximize the potential of the Z97 and H97 chipsets to deliver better user experiences, performance, stability, and upgrade options.

ASUS-branded Motherboards ó Optimized Performance for a Wide Range of Computing Scenarios

ASUS-branded Z97 and H97 motherboards feature a stunning new design with a unique and distinctive perfectly circular heat-sink on the next-generation Platform Controller Hub (PCH) chip, and boast comprehensive features for users looking to create a high-performance PC, a potent gaming rig or a multimedia entertainment center.

5-Way Optimization by Dual Intelligent Processors 5 optimizes PC performance with a simple click. It improves on its 4-Way Optimization predecessor with the Turbo App, tailored networking and audio settings, together with upgraded fan control, robust overclocking, energy savings, and digital power. ASUS-branded motherboards also feature Crystal Sound 2 and Turbo LAN, which together deliver flawless audio and reduce lag to improve the gaming experience.

In PC home entertainment centers, ASUS HomeCloud turns the hard drive into a private cloud. The built-in Wake-on-WAN feature lets users wake and control the PC remotely with a smart device. Users can also stream multimedia content from the PC to any device. The capacity to interact with smart devices wirelessly is further enhanced by the inclusion of the ASUS-exclusive NFC Express 2 and wireless charger.

Ultimate Gaming Performance from ROG

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) unveiled Maximus VII Gene mATX, Maximus VII Hero ATX, and the new Maximus VII Ranger ATX gaming motherboards. All three motherboards sport the distinctive ROG black and red color scheme, feature premium components, black nickel CPU socket covers, and improved circuit layouts.

TUF Server-grade Reliability

Available in both ATX and mATX form factors, TUF Sabertooth Z97 Mark 1 and Gryphon Z97 Armor Edition motherboards feature TUF Fortifier, Thermal Armor, and Dust Defenders to ensure the ultimate in system durability and stability. The new onboard TUF ICe microchip delivers incredibly precise temperature monitoring and fan control whether adjusting settings manually or through the automatic one-click optimization feature found in Thermal Radar 2. TUF Fortifier uses a thermal pad attached to the motherboard, making the whole backplate a huge heat sink that directs heat away from key components such as VRMs and MOSFETs. Thermal management is aided by Thermal Armor which optimizes airflow to aid in heat dissipation, while Dust Diverter technology blows dust up and away from the heat sink VRM.

All TUF Z97 motherboards, including the new Sabertooth Z97 Mark 2 and Gryphon Z97 models, feature reliable TUF Components for military-grade durability.

These motherboards feature the latest Intel Gigabit Ethernet for faster, smoother gaming sessions. It reduces CPU overhead to allot more processing power for gaming and offers exceptionally high Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) throughput. The smooth mouse-controlled graphics-based BIOS has been improved and now includes EZ Tuning Wizard-OC and RAID. These tools intelligently tune system performance and streamline RAID configuration for faster data retrieval and backups.
