ASUS has made a name for itself when it comes to laptops and even desktops. In fact, the company has become one of the go to brands when it comes to computers. That sentiment rings true even when it comes to computer components. ASUS has some of the most robust and reliable components in the market.
A year from the announcement of six new Coffee Lake Processors by Intel together with the Z370 chipsets, Intel has announced a new update. The new Intel Z390 chipset supports the new ninth generation of Intel processors. The new processors support higher clock speeds and have even more cores for higher processing loads; ideal for content creators.
Hot off the heels of Intel’s announcement, ASUS is announcing a new line up of motherboards. The new motherboards which are based on the Intel Z390 chipset are hitting the marketplace with features for every price point. The company new motherboards span their many sub-brands from the popular Republic of Gamers (ROG) to their new The Ultimate Force (TUF).
The Prime Z390-A, WS Z390-PRO and all ROG models aside from the ROG Strix Z390-H Gaming are equipped with ASUS AI overclocking. This will enable users to push the performance of their processors seamlessly without needing the technical knowledge. The AI overclocking adjusts the clock speeds, voltages and even checks stability before pursuing higher frequencies. Lower end models will still have OC Tuner to help squeeze more performance without the 5 point overclocking.
The new Z390 motherboards also come with an AIO pump header for better cooling. This will help the motherboards better handle the increased heat from the overclocked CPUs. Aside from this, the motherboards are also Aura Sync enabled which will let you play with colours and lighting as you see fit. Just don’t induce seizures with the flashing lights.
ROG Gaming Motherboard Call of Duty®: Black Ops 4 Edition:
The upcoming ROG motherboard will support the latest Intel chipset and is the perfect foundation for a Call of Duty gaming rig, as it combines substantial power, smart cooling and faster memory support under a stealthy skin. Loaded with renowned ROG features, from one-click overclocking and cooling to attention-grabbing AURA Sync illumination, this special edition is crafted for the battle ground and will let you become the hero. The soon-to-be-announced motherboard will include a game code allowing access to the Digital Standard Edition for PC
