Asus's latest Republic of Gamers (ROG) motherboard supports 3-Way SLI and CrossFireX setups on latest Intel platform.
The Republic of Gamers (ROG) Rampage II Extreme has been announced today by Asus as "the most advanced and highest performing enthusiast motherboard at present".
The mainboard incorporates the latest Intel chipset and SLI/CrossFireX on demand promising to deliver blistering performance. To ROG Rampage II Extreme features ROG Extreme Engine, a multi-phase power management system - 16 phases for the CPU and 3 phases each for QPI/DRAM, the Northbridge and memory - with Multilayer type Polymer Capacitors (ML Caps) that keep the power supply stable under demanding loads.
The ROG Rampage II Extreme also features TweakIt and ProbeIt, tools that enable overclockers to adjust and monitor their frequency and voltage settings directly from the motherboard itself.
TweakIt enables overclockers to make real-time changes to their systems' core frequency, voltage and other parameters using the joystick-like control on the motherboard itself - even while the benchmark utility is running. ProbeIt, on the other hand, takes the guesswork out of locating the motherboard's measurement points, demarcating them clearly so that users will know exactly where they will be able to get quick yet accurate readings using a multitester. There are eight sets of detection points in total.
The ROG Rampage II Extreme supports the new Intel CPU chipset, enabling users to reap the performance benefits of Intel?s latest processor microarchitecture including increased speed, superior multitasking, DDR3-1800(OC) memory support and greater energy efficiency.
Rounding off the package is the inclusion of a SupremeFX X-Fi sound card. SupremeFX X-Fi utilizes established X-Fi technologies such as CMSS-3D and EAX to deliver multichannel audio both during gaming and while enjoying other forms of multimedia entertainment.
