Looks like a Sound Card, I am not really intrested though, onboard audio is more than enough for me.

It's a complete gaming system on a single slot card. ;)

Would be pretty nice, but also expensive :)

looks like a sound card with a hidden 15pin joystick connector.

My guess, it's either an ROG branded Sound card much like the Xonar Xense with the Headphone AMP with full 7.1 support and maybe THX TruStudio Pro too?

Or it's a combo card, which will be like the Thunderbolt card found on the R3BE, with the headphone amp and killer NIC which will finally be able to buy now separately?

Either way I was in the market for a soundcard but if this is better than what the new creative Recon3D Fatal1ty has to offer, I'll hold out and get the ROG soundcard that is if this is really an ROG soundcard in the works.

sounds that came from that lil nymph.................

the temptations of the evil msi and evga pythons......hmmmmm...

I googled it today, only because I thought CES started and usually people posted stuff about stuff they haven't yet announced at CES.

There's a pic but I'm not sure if I can post it or anything, so i'm not.
Apparently it's called the "ASUS Xonar Phoebus"
From the pic of what I see, I'm in love with it. The EMI shield is like the coolest looking one ever made IMHO not being a fanboy or anything.
And it does have the Headphone amp from what I see, lots of connections to it so I'm pretty sure it'll support 7.1 sound too.

I will be holding out for this as my sound card over the Creative Recon3D.

I wouldn't mind seeing this as an optional package to be packaged with the Vulcan headsets too, but no mater I'll probably get those later when I get this too.

There's also a detachable remote for headphones that you can connect a mic and headset too, that has a dial that you can increase either the amp or the volume of the sound. It looks pretty bad ass and apparently it's attached from the back of the sound card from one of the sources I've read and it sits on your desk.

EDIT: LOL just saw this on the main site. The external device pictured earlier this week as for the ThunderFX a external amp and splitter and will be packaged with the Rampage IV Formula. Pretty sweet.

Here's a pic of the Phoebus:
