[Computex 2014] When it comes to gaming peripherals as well as computers, you know for sure that hardcore gamers do take their “tools of the trade” very, very seriously. And by that, I mean actually sourcing just which is the best part for a particular gaming set up, and most of the time, a stock motherboard will not do. ASUS knows this, which is why they have taken the opportunity to roll out the ASUS Maximus VII Formula, being the Republic of Gamers’ (ROG) flagship Z97-based ATX gaming motherboard.
Sporting an all-new CrossChill Copper design that will boast of a full copper cooling core which is touted to be extremely efficient and effective when it comes to removing heat, the Maximus VII Formula will also boast of ROG’s celebrated SupremeFX Formula 2014 technology for audio purposes that is said to be able to stand up on its own as a dedicated sound card.
Apart from that, the Maximus VII Formula will arrive pre-fitted with mPCIe Combo III + 802.11ac / Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, which would let users enjoy the latest in wireless technologies, accompanied by mini PCI Express (mPCIe) and M.2 (10Gbit/s PCIe x2 and 6Gb/s SATA) slots and the ROG KeyBot and FanExpert 3. No idea on pricing, but such details ought to be revealed pretty soon.
