ASUS Republic of Gamers Introduces Maximus VI Formula Gaming Motherboard with Intel Z87 Chipset
Packed with such exclusive features as CrossChill Hybrid cooling and SupremeFX Formula audio, ROG gives gamers the premium performance they demand
Taipei, Taiwan (25 July, 2013) — 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 exclusive ROG features.
Based on the new Intel Z87 chipset, Maximus VI Formula is brimming with the kind of innovative and exclusive features that ROG fans expect. CrossChill hybrid air and water-cooling gives efficient heat dissipation for extreme overclocked performance, SupremeFX Formula onboard audio with a dedicated 600ohm headphone amplifier ensures immersive high-quality audio and 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 for precise power delivery with stable performance.
Incredible cooling, reliable overclocking and no-compromise components
With exclusive ROG CrossChill technology onboard, the Maximus VI Formula gaming motherboard boasts cooling performance that’s great on air and even better with water. Tests show that it can achieve up to 23-degree Centigrade-lower temperatures in the critical MOSFET area for more reliable overclocking. The CrossChill internal cooling channel is lined with fins to maximize the surface area for heat transfer and, because CrossChill uses standard G¼-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.
ROG has focused on the highest quality throughout the Maximus VI Formula design. The ROG Extreme Engine DIGI+ III voltage-regulator module (VRM) ensures precise and stable power delivery by employing NexFET MOSFETs, 60A BlackWing chokes and Japanese-made 10K black metallic capacitors. Maximus VI Formula also includes an award-winning and upgraded UEFI BIOS.
Hear like you’ve never heard
Maximus VI Formula features built-in SupremeFX Formula audio for sound quality on a par with high-end discrete sound cards. Premium components such as 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 brilliant 120dB SNR (signal-to-noise ratio). A Hi-Fi-quality Texas Instruments® TPA6120A2 600ohm headphone amplifier boosts every sound detail with personal listening, too.
A variety of shielding technologies also ensure sound purity, including physical isolation from the PCB (printed circuit board), grounding separation and a cover shield to protect against EMI (electromagnetic interference).
Get on top of the game
Maximus VI Formula is designed for winners and features exclusive ROG utilities to help gamers join the elite. 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.
Ultra-fast 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.
AVAILABILITY & PRICING
Maximus VI Formula will be available worldwide from DATE. Please contact your local ASUS representative for further information.
