As the Formula motherboards are aimed at high-performance PC gamers rather than pro-benchmarkers, like the Extreme, the ROG team decided on a game theme in its official video for the Rampage IV Formula.
Let us know what you think, if you like it and if you have ideas for
the Maximus V *ahem* future ROG boards in our forums.
Since this is also an ‘official’ Rampage IV Formula post – here’s the ASUS PR below for a specification reference too.

Taipei, Taiwan—23 November, 2011
ASUS Releases Republic of Gamers Rampage IV Formula Motherboard
Latest Intel® X79 based motherboard features the latest SupremeFX III™ audio, Intel® Gigabit Ethernet with GameFirst for a powerful gaming performance
Taipei, Taiwan (November 23, 2011) — With the success of the Rampage III Black Edition, ROG has unveiled the next generation of gamer centric motherboards, the Rampage IV Formula and Rampage IV Formula/Battlefield 3 bundle; formulated to provide the best gaming experience possible. The Rampage IV Formula series features the new Intel® X79 chipset along with an exclusive audio and LAN gaming solution– the SupremeFX III™ and Intel® Gigabit Ethernet with GameFirst technology, all designed to give users the fastest and most immersive gameplay ever. 4-Way NVIDIA® SLI™ and AMD CrossFireX™ are also supported for maximized graphics performance and overclocking unrivaled by other gaming motherboards*. As an added bonus, specially marked boxes of the Rampage IV Formula come bundled with a full version of EA™ Game’s latest award winning first person shooter, Battlefield 3™.
Audio onboard the Rampage IV Formula is powered by the new SupremeFX III™ audio engine, featuring 8-channel HD surround sound equipped with a carefully selected 1500uF capacitor setup to provide clean, ripple-free audio power that is perfect for producing enveloping gaming environments. A metallic EMI cover, special layout design on the PCB and advanced SupremeFX Shielding™ technology isolates analog audio signals from any potential interference for exceptional clarity and high fidelity, while gold-plated 3.5mm jacks ensure rich notes reach gamers ears with minimal distortion. As a result, a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 110dB was achieved during testing, yielding almost lossless audio. Audio industry standards such as EAX® Advanced HD 5.0, Creative® ALchemy and THX® TruStudio™ PRO are also supported, so the same great audio experiences found in live performances, films and recording studios are reproduced faithfully right on the PC. When bundled with the Sound Blaster® X-Fi MB2 suite, the SupremeFX III™ is the perfect choice to provide an exceptional gaming experience with realistic sound effects.
4-way NVIDIA® SLI™, AMD CrossFireX™ and Intel® Gigabit LAN
To go along with an excellent audio solution, the Rampage IV Formula also gives gamers the best choice when it comes to support for multiple graphics cards. With enough space to support up to 4-way NVIDIA® SLI™ and AMD CrossFireX™ configurations, gamers have the ultimate choice in what GPU vendor powers their high-end graphics setup for the next generation of games.
For the smoothest online gameplay, the Rampage IV Formula is equipped with Intel® Gigabit Ethernet optimized with ROG GameFirst technology for lightning fast connectivity. GameFirst technology intelligently optimizes network traffic to ensure that gaming data is prioritized, even when downloading or streaming other content on the same computer.
Features that save
The Rampage IV Formula features the new Extreme Engine DIGI+ II with 10K Black Metallic Capacitors that enables gamers to push systems to their maximum, yet remains reliably stable to ensure they don’t miss any action when gaming. Another innovative feature is the X-Socket™, which enables users to swap out the CPU bracket around a LGA2011 board with one that is designed for an LGA1366 cooler. For gamers who are upgrading from a previous generation X58 motherboard, this can save them quite a bit of money, as higher end heatsink and cooling solutions can be an expensive repurchase.
Battlefield 3 Bundle
Bundled with specially marked versions of the Rampage IV Formula is a full version of EA™ Game’s newest first person shooter, Battlefield 3™. Users can engage in all-out vehicle warfare with Battlefield 3’s award-winning multiplayer on vast maps, or team up with a friend in a unique co-op campaign. Add to this an intense single player campaign and you have the most expansive shooter yet in the series. With over 60 industry awards, Battlefield 3™ is the most anticipated first person shooter of the year.
