Eight models from ASUS

With the launch of Coffee Lake, Intel has finally brought their first six-core and twelve-thread processors to the mainstream market. A few months after the launch of the first batch of motherboards, ASUS is ready to release several updated models.


Designed for workstations

A few months ago, ASUS has revealed the full specifications of its WS X299 SAGE 10G motherboard. This model belongs to the high-end series and it's recommended for Core i9 processors. Like the previous model base on Intel X99 chipset, the upcoming WS X299 SAGE 10G sports the company's highest-grade eletrical components. Meanwhile ASUS has refreshed the WS X299 SAGE with dual 10GbE and improved VRM design.



Server-grade motherboard

During the Computex 2018, Intel has unveiled an unnamed HEDT Skylake XCC processor that's capable of run at 5GHz. This CPU features six channel DDR4 memory and require a variant of the LGA3647 socket from Purley platform.


Based on ATX form factor

The ASUS ROG B450-F Strix Gaming is another AMD AM4 motherboard that should help filling gaps ASUS' AM4 lineup. So far this is the first B450 motherboard from ASUS. Compared to the ROG B350-F Strix Gaming, the new B450-F Strix Gaming sports a better layout.


With OLED displays

During the Computex 2018, ASUS has expanded the list of components that belong to ROG family. ASUS' latest entries in the ROG family are the Ryujin and Ryuo series of closed-loop liquid coolers. Both lines of coolers include RGB LED illumination and a tiny OLED display placed on top of the pump.


With 240 Hz refresh rate

ASUS has updated their gaming monitor lineup with a new display which goes by the name ROG Strix XG248Q. This monitor sports a 24-inch panel with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. Apart from that it features Aura RGB lighting effect.


Cryptocurrency mining effect

ASUS dropped its hat into the DIY crypto-currency mining hardware craze introduction the H370 Mining Master motherboard. This ATX form-factor motherboard comes with twenty USB 3.1 Type-A ports and one PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slot.


Four-port addressable RGB controller

ASUS has released an addressable RGB controller with ROG Halo and Aura Sync. With ASUS Halo you can create an ambient light effect, while Aura Sync is the RGB effect that you can find on compatible ASUS motherboards.


One of the first 4K/144Hz monitors to hit the market

A few days ago, Acer announced that their Predator X27 4K HDR monitor is going to be available during next weeks. Well, something appears to be going on, since also ASUS will release its monitor quite soon. Both displays feature the same AU Optronics panel.


We were wrong as well

There has been a lot of confusion surrounding ASUS and the future for its AREZ lineup of graphics cards. When NVIDIA has ended the GeForce Partner Program, a Twitter account claiming to be an official AREZ profile and it has posted that the AREZ lineup was coming to end. However, it turns out that we will see soon AREZ products.


Since NVIDIA has killed GPP

The GPP has created a lot of bad press for NVIDIA, so much that the company has cancelled the program a couple of weeks ago. Right after the announcement of the GPP, some AIB and AIC partners already had made changes and created separate lines for their Radeon cards. For example MSI created the MECH series only for AMD products.


Paired with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 GPU

Intel's Coffee Lake six-core mobile CPUs deliver a lot of performance with only 45W TDP. ASUS has placed three heat pipes and a pair of fans in its ZenBook Pro 15 notebook, in order to cool down the powerful six-core CPU with 4.5GHz of frequency. This massive CPU has been installed inside an ultra-thin aluminum unibody chassis that's less than 2cm thick.


New identity for AMD cards

If you have been following the rumour mill you might have heard of this new ASUS sub-brand. According to some people, this sub-brand has been introduced in order to bypass the conditions of the NVIDIA GeForce Partner Program.


Including a tiny mini-ITX model

Following Gigabyte's announcment, ASUS has unveiled five AMD X470 motherboard too. While four models come with ATX form factor, the last one lose some slots and ports to squeeze into a mini-ITX profile. Like with the previous news, we will do a quick recap.


With Intel 8th Gen CPUs

It appears that ASUS will use six-core Coffee Lake-H processor inside the upcoming GL503 and GL703 gaming notebooks. While on the CPU side the company has made a big step forward, regarding the graphics side ASUS is going to use a GTX 1050Ti graphics card.


AU Optronics is working hard on it

A few months ago, Acer announced that their Predator X27 4K HDR monitor is going to be be delayed until the first quarter of current year. We heard a similar story about the ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ as well and it looks like that AU Optronics is having several issues combining together local dimming with HDR10 standard.


AMD GPUs are now under AREZ brand

A few days ago, NVIDIA has introduced the GeForce Partner Program (GPP), an initiative that should fill the gap between NVIDIA and the companies that produce add-in cards or system based on its technology. We heard that AIB partners were feeling the pressure with GPP although the program isn't mandatory for them.



First X470 mini-ITX model from ASUS

ASUS has been the first manufacturer to come up with AMD AM4 400-series motherboards. Already a few weeks ago, we have seen first details on upcoming ATX models, which are based on AMDs AM4 chipset. Meanwhile, there are finally more details on the ROG Strix X470-I motherboard.



Both based on ATX form factor

The STRIX X470-F Gaming and Prime Pro from ASUS are two AMD AM4 motherboards that come with a few interesting features. These two models are almost identical and according to the pictures the main difference should be about the audio section.


A slight upgrade from the current model

The ROG Crosshair VI Hero from ASUS has received a little upgrade regarding storage part and overall design. This new model sports the upcoming AMD X470 chipset and few interesting changes. Furthermore, it comes with WiFi 2.4/5GHz antennas like the Hero WiFi AC.
