ASUS has announced A88X-Gamer motherboards in India. Targeted specifically at the gamers, A88X is equipped with the latest Intel Gigabit Ethernet networking, SupremeFX technology gaming audio and Gamer's Guardian components for exceptional durability and reliability. It also includes the ASUS-exclusive AI Suite 3 software to unleash the true power of AMD accelerated-processing units (APUs).
A88X-Gamer players benefit from exclusive SupremeFX technology for near-lossless audio with a remarkable signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 115dB — so gamers hear every sound detail.
The advanced audio chipset is isolated from electromagnetic interference (EMI) by a protective shield, preserving the integrity of the audio signals. Exclusive 'red-line shielding' horizontally separates SupremeFX audio components from the rest of the motherboard. This combination effectively eliminates analog interference to ensure flawless sound quality.
SupremeFX also has a built-in amplifier that drives high-quality headphones — all the way up to 300ohm impedance — for sound quality that's as great as a dedicated sound card.
A88X-Gamer's networking is powered by Intel Gigabit Ethernet. This has the advantage of communicating directly with Intel processors to offer Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) throughput, lowering overall processing demands and improving efficiency — releasing more power for games and gameplay.
A88X-Gamer is engineered with high-quality, highly-durable Gamer's Guardian components for exceptional real-world protection.
Gamer's Guardian includes onboard resettable fuses that protect the connection ports and DRAM against overcurrent and short-circuit damage.
The A88X-Gamer also includes AI Suite 3, an ASUS-exclusive dashboard-style control panel that lets gamers fine-tune almost every aspect of A88X-Gamer-based systems for the best balance between performance, stability and efficiency — all via a simple and intuitive interface.
Priced at Rs 8,750 the ASUS A88X-Gamer motherboard will be available starting February. The motherboard will also carry a 3-year warranty.
