One of the main highlights of Computex Taipei 2013 this year is ASUS’ showcasing its latest 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 also showcased its various new Z87 motherboards with Dual Intelligent Processors 4, UEFI BIOS, Wi-Fi GO! and NFC EXPRESS technologies.
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. At the booth, ASUS is showcasing how users can easily create multiple profiles to quick-launch favorite apps like Facebook, media players and more.
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.
