ASUS Introduces Maximus VI Formula Gaming Motherboard


ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced Maximus VI Formula, an ATX gaming motherboard ready for the latest 4th generation Intel Core processors and packed with ROG features.

The motherboard, which is based on the new Intel Z87 chipset, features CrossChill hybrid air and water-cooling for efficient heat dissipation under overclocking, SupremeFX Formula onboard audio with a dedicated 600ohm headphone amplifier, while a mini-PCIe Combo II card adds dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi for next-generation wireless networking. Maximus VI Formula also features Extreme Engine DIGi+ III technology and high-quality electronic components.

With exclusive ROG CrossChill technology onboard, Asus tests showed that it can achieved up to 23-degree Centigrade-lower temperatures in the critical MOSFET area. The CrossChill internal cooling channel is lined with fins to maximize the surface area for heat transfer and, because CrossChill uses standard G?-inch threaded fittings, it will easily accommodate existing cooling equipment.

Wraparound ROG Armor also helps Maximus VI Formula keep its cool. A tough ABS plastic top cover keeps from the graphics cards away from the motherboard, while a SECC (Steel, Electro-galvanized, Cold-rolled Coil) backplate with thermal pads both improves cooling in the MOSFET area and prevents the motherboard bending, even under the weight of heavy components.

Maximus VI Formula also features built-in SupremeFX Formula audio, which promises to offer sound quality on a par with high-end discrete sound cards. ELNA audio capacitors and German-made WIMA film capacitors deliver audiophile- grade performance, while high-fidelity op-amps (operational amplifiers) and a Cirrus Logic CS4398 DAC (digital/analog converter) deliver lossless audio and a 120dB SNR (signal-to-noise ratio). A Texas Instruments TPA6120A2 600ohm headphone amplifier boosts sound details.

ROG Sonic Radar is an on-screen overlay that gives a leg-up to fans of first- person shooter (FPS) games by displaying the precise location of in-game sounds such as gunshots and footsteps, making it much easier to pinpoint an enemy's position.

Intel Ethernet with ROG GameFirst II technology optimizes network traffic, too, keeping latency to minimum and reducing all-important 'ping' times. Similarly, the ROG RAMDisk utility allows up to 80% of a computer?s available RAM to be dedicated as a high-speed virtual drive that accelerates game loading times and extends SSD lifespan by reducing the number of write operations.
