Message Text: Asus Maximus VI Formula and Maximus VI Impact motherboards, Poseidon water-cooed graphics card, G750 notebook and Tytan G30 desktop all showcased at Computex, along with the Sonic Radar audio visualization utility for enhanced gaming.

Maximus VI Formula with CrossChill cooling

ROG Maximus VI Formula is a gaming motherboard, with a ROG Armor cover and a SECC (Steel, Electro-galvanized, Cold-rolled, Coil) backplate with thermal pads for added strength and cooling. Maximus VI Formula features the CrossChill hybrid thermal design, which offers the option of both air and liquid cooling. Integrated 'Pin-finned' heatsinks improve heat dissipation with an increased surface area, while twin G1/4-inch threaded sockets support any standard liquid cooling loop. ROG testing has shown that a liquid-cooled Maximus VI Formula motherboard with CrossChill operates at temperatures up to 23 degrees Celsius lower than air-only cooling.



Overclocking performance is also enhanced by Extreme Engine Digi+ III power delivery, featuring 60A BlackWing chokes, 90% efficiency NexFET MOSFETs and 10K Black Metallic capacitors. A bundled mPCIe Combo II card also provides 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless, plus an M.2 interface for ultra-compact NGFF (Next Generation Form-Factor) SSDs.

Maximus VI Formula also supports the SupremeFX onboard audio. This features 120dB SNR headphone output with a 600ohm headphone amplifier, and WIMA and ELNA audio capacitors. Differential signal processing with OpAMP and EMI shielding reduce electromagnetic interference, too.

Mini-ITX Maximus VI

Maximus VI Impact is the first ROG mini-ITX motherboard. Suitable for small form factor enthusiasts, it includes the Impact Power add-on card with 8+2 phase digital power for the CPU and memory, along with the SupremeFX Impact sound card, which features ELNA audio capacitors and 115dB SNR, plus a headphone amplifier. An mPCIe Combo II card with 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 is also included.



ROG Poseidon graphics card with hybrid DirectCU H2O cooling

The new ROG Poseidon graphics card features an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 700 Series GPU and a hybrid DirectCU H2O thermal design that supports both air and liquid cooling. Developed by ASUS, its CoolTech fan combines blower and axial fans in one design, forcing air in multiple directions over the heatsink. Liquid cooling reduces operating temperatures by up to 31 degrees Celsius for cooler running with even greater overclocking potential. ROG Poseidon also features a red pulsing ROG logo.



Sonic Radar audio visualization

The Sonic Radar audio positioning engine was developed by ASUS audio teams as a way to visualize in-game sound. Sonic Radar helps players detect opponents even without direct line of sight, by displaying an on-screen overlay that shows the relative position of gunshots, footsteps and other sound effects. Sonic Radar will be offered with all ROG gaming sound cards (including Xonar Phoebus and Xonar Phoebus Solo) and Maximus VI Series motherboards with SupremeFX from summer 2013.

Tytan G30 desktop and G750 notebook

The ROG Tytan G30 gaming desktop uses automatic case ventilation control and liquid CPU cooling. The performance of its 4th generation Intel Core i7-4770K processor can be fully exploited with one-click overclocking of all four cores on the fly, while NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 graphics ensure smooth gameplay.



The 17-inch G750 is the latest in the ROG G Series of gaming notebooks. Powered by a 4th generation Intel Core processor and NVIDIA GeForce? GTX 700M Series graphics, the G750 has a gamer-focused design with a backlit keyboard, isolated directional key cluster and large multi-point touchpad. It als ocomes equipped with a dedicated headphone amplifier.

Tytan G30 and G750 both feature exclusive ASUS SonicMaster audio technology. SonicMaster and the ROG AudioWizard sound tuning utility offer five modes to match different gaming genres, all controlled through a user-friendly interface.

Orion for Consoles headset

For universally accessible gaming sound, ROG presented the Orion for Consoles headset. Compatible with PC, Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3, Orion for Consoles has large padded ear cushions and 50mm neodymium magnet drivers for deep bass and detailed audio reproduction. The headset offers passive noise cancellation that blocks up to 30dB of ambient noise.

ROG Armor keyboard & Nomad backpack Designed specifically for gamers, the ROG Armor keyboard features mechanical key switches for continued performance and backlit keys for use in low-light environments.

The ROG Nomad backpack caters for larger gaming notebooks like the ROG G750 with an internal suspension system and padded pockets that ensure everything is well protected when on the move. Ventilated padding keeps the wearer cool and comfortable, while the water-resistant ballistic nylon design keeps the cargo dry.

OC Panel demo with legendary overclockers

ROG team members and overclockers Andre Yang and Shamino demonstrated the overclocking prowess of the Maximus VI Extreme motherboard with a 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor and a 32GB four-DIMM RAM configuration. Using the Asus OC Panel utility and extreme liquid nitrogen cooling, they achieved upwards of 7GHz processor and 4200MHz memory speeds.
