ASUS Launches Motherboard For Gamers

Last October 16, ASUS Philippines has launched their Gamer Series motherboards at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

The leading motherboard brand showcased three of its gaming oriented motherboards; H97-Pro Gamer, B85-Pro Gamer, and A88X-Gamer. Present at the launch was Cherry Credits (the publisher of the hit MMORPG Dragon Nest) who were excited on the new line of motherboards as well as the invited gamers and the press for the capabilities of the latest motherboards. There were test units for attendees to experience the sheer power of the ASUS products.

The Gamer Series Motherboards promises to be long lasting thanks to ASUS’ strict process on quality testing and using durable components, offering five times more protection from the usual motherboards. The motherboards will also include the ASUS AI Suite 3, a control panel exclusive for ASUS boards where you can tune the board’s performance and efficiency in a much simpler interface.

Aside from the Motherboards, the newest line of Strix video cards were revealed, namely the Strix GTX 750Ti and Strix GTX 980 OC. These cards are overclocked to provide the most powerful performance for your visual-hungry games. Installed with the DirectCU II cooling system to ensure your video cards won’t overheat during extreme load. And not to mention the cards will ensure to have 0 dB noise to fully enjoy noise-free playing experience.
