The ROG team has developed not one but two new Matrix cards, built on the fastest chips AMD and Nvidia have to offer: meet the Matrix R9 290X and Matrix GTX 780 Ti.
See inside for the photo gallery and first details on its new features!
Fitting the gap between R9 280X and R9 270X, the R9 280 (note that’s sans-X) is AMD’s performance-mainstream fighter in the graphics card market. The ASUS R9 280 DirectCU II has upgraded the stock card with its custom PCB and cooling; a dual-slot DirectCU II cooler that includes the ASUS exclusive CoolTech fan, while the Super Alloy Power hardware adds DIGI+ VRM and extremely hard-wearing POSCAP’s (polymerized organic-semiconductor capacitors) to simultaneously extend the life of the card, and increase overclocking performance.

Hot on the heels of ROG’s two CES 2014 Design Awards, the Maximus VI Formula has received a 2014 iF Design Award (among 10 others from ASUS products), with iF highlighting the CrossChill hybrid thermal design, ROG Armor and SupremeFX technology key reasons behind the award.

If you own any ASUS, ROG or TUF Z87, H87, B85 or H81 motherboard there will soon be BIOS updates for upcoming new 4th Gen Intel Core CPUs. Most boards feature ASUS’ exclusive USB BIOS Flashback that can update the BIOS with only the ATX power connector attached – no CPU or memory required. When the new CPUs arrive, your ASUS board will be ready with the update from the support pages. Hit the PR button inside for the full list of motherboards and upcoming minimum BIOS version that provides new support.
At the other end of the scale from the new ultra-powerful Titan Black, the new GTX 750 and GTX 750 Ti are also launching today, and provide some great value gaming. Built using the new ‘Maxwell’ architecture (‘GM107′ core specifically), it is designed to be incredibly efficient. As you’d expect, ASUS DirectCU II OC versions of the GTX 750 and 750 Ti are significantly upgraded from the reference design to provide greater overclocking headroom with a revised PCB design, Super Alloy Power hardware and DirectCU II cooling.
Regarding recent discussions about the default security settings of the AiCloud and FTP features in some ASUS routers, updated firmware that modifies these settings is now available on the ASUS website (and, actually, has been for some time).
Please see inside for more details and a link to firmwares.
Have you been pining for a the full GK110 experience, but with double memory size of the 780 Ti to accomodate 4K or Surround setups? Well, the Titan Black is your new go-to graphics card. It benefits from Nvidia’s GPU Boost 2.0 and supports G-Sync for those planning on the Swift PG278.
