Both the Vulcan PRO and Xonar Phoebus are bundled with a free copy of Assassins Creed 3 at the moment in the Asia-Pacific Region, so now’s the perfect time to get your hands on one!
The ASUS Master DIY Tour of 2012 hit Malaysia last week, with ROG power users gathering to see the technical seminar, tech discussion and of course, plenty of overclocking. Attending the event were renowned Malay overclockers coolice, bob(nz), louislkw, owikh84, ktek, hilmiangah, lengchai86, kelvinchen and ah_khoo.
ROG originally revealed the ROG Xonar Phoebus back at CES, and now after a few months of tweaking it’s finally ready for your PCs!
The Xonar Phoebus is more than just a premium soundcard, with software specifically tweaked for gamers rather than the usual Xonar mix, and the bundled hardware control box combines volume control with environmental noise cancellation (ENC) microphones so it bridges the gap between a Vulcan headset and your PC. We’ll be detailing the full product specs, its design and how to use it in the coming weeks, so please add us to your RSS feeder or bookmark list and keep an eye out!
Last year saw the release of the ROG ThunderBolt bundled with the Rampage III Black Edition and the Crosshair V Formula to rave reviews. However, the card was only available bundled with the motherboards, and not as a standalone product, much to the chagrin of many a hardcore gamer. The demand was enough to design the first standalone ROG soundcard dubbed the Xonar Phoebus.
Please note: this is only an announcement (as opposed to launch) of the ROG Xonar Phoebus as is due in the coming months.
The Rampage III Extreme has had a bit of a makeover – the Black Edition is, well, a lot darker than before as all the ports and sockets now don a black and dark grey coat, rather than a dash of red as well.
Firstly you’ll notice the heatsinks have also been upgraded to match the Maximus IV Extreme. If you look carefully at the VRM heatsink there’s even an ROG logo stealthily incorporated too.
