ASUS Leads the PC Hardware Industry with a New Motherboard Series Featuring Optimized Designs Innovative Design Delivers Ultimate Performance, Uncompromising Reliability, and Superior Operating Safety Standards Mumbai, Maharashtra, July 20, 2009 /India PRwire/ -- ASUS today announced the Xtreme Design series motherboards featuring ground-breaking design innovations and offering the best in performance and reliability. The Xtreme Design series motherboards deliver exceptional overall system compatibility and enhanced reliability by proficiently managing and reliably controlling core processes operating in the PC. Drawing on two decades of engineering excellence, ASUS believes a genetically superior motherboard DNA will provide the winning formula to surpass current user expectations and industry benchmarks. ASUS leads the industry with designs that optimize overall performance and reliability of PC hardware. In the new Xtreme Design series motherboards, ASUS further raises the bar in motherboard designs for the ultimate in performance, reliability, and safe operations.
Commenting on the new series of motherboards, Mr. Vinay Shetty – Country Head – Component Business, ASUS (India) said, “The Xtreme Design concept recognizes the utmost important part of any product – its design – something that is an ASUS hallmark. Special circuit design and ideal material selection combined with optimized board layout and best integrated design ensure the best final result in these series of motherboards. The Stack Cool3+ technology deployed in these boards is an advanced version of the 2oz PCB design which offers 17% more cooling than reference designed boards.” Xtreme Reliability for Extended Component Lifespan Xtreme Design features innovative Stack Cool3+ to enhance motherboard component longevity. It is a feature that was re-engineered from the original copper cooling innovation of the ASUS P5E64 WS motherboard. With the perfect cooperation with Xtreme Design, Stack Cool3+ effectively cools motherboards with an enhanced PCB layer to provide a stable and low operating temperature for optimized data transmissions. By substantially improving heat dissipation, the new series offers users exceptional reliability. This innovation builds on ASUS’ pioneering achievement as the first adopter of innovative cooling technology—which transformed the way motherboards were designed. Xtreme Performance for Enhanced Power and Throughput For the ultimate experience in performance, Xtreme Design features Xtreme phase to ensure the most stable and optimized power delivery; and Turbo V for a real-time, dynamic processing boost. Both features allow motherboard enthusiasts to experience optimal power performance under various loading conditions as well as an overwhelming boost of up to 51% in processing throughput. Xtreme Safety Standards for Minimized Health Impact Unsurpassed safety standards are incorporated in the Xtreme Design series motherboards for safer operations. By passing stringent Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) testing that is 30% more rigorous than industry benchmarks; the new motherboards have exceptionally low EMI emissions. Together with a low Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) and an I/O bracket called Q-Shield, these features help to significantly reduce any negative health impact and potential damage to components. Launching Soon: Xtreme Design Series Motherboards with Superior Performance ASUS will be launching a range of Xtreme Design series motherboards. Among them is the P6TD Deluxe, an enhanced version of the record-breaking, high-performance, X58-based P6T Deluxe motherboard. With an “Xtreme Design” DNA, the new series will appeal to the performance-demanding market and gain more fans by offering superior capabilities and exceptional reliability—traits that discerning users have come to expect from ASUS, the leading name in technology innovation.
