ASUS Announces A88X-Gamer

 

ASUS has announced their A88X-Gamer motherboard, a new AMD A88X chipset-based ATX gaming board engineered with exclusive technologies to deliver absolute fun.

A88X-Gamer is equipped with the latest Intel® Gigabit Ethernet networking for fast, lag-free online-gaming experiences, exclusive SupremeFX technology for flawless gaming audio and exclusive 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).

 

 

 

Gaming audio

 

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 unique combination effectively eliminates analog interference to ensure flawless sound quality. Premium ELNA® audio capacitors are added to the mix to deliver a warmer, natural sound to complete the audio experience.

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.

 

Gaming networking

 

A88X-Gamer’s networking is powered by Intel Gigabit Ethernet. This offers exceptionally-high Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) throughput, lowering overall processing demands and improving efficiency — releasing more power for games and gameplay.

Gamer's Guardian components

 

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, while exceptionally high-quality, Japanese-made 10K black-metallic capacitors offer greater temperature endurance and improved lifespans.

Gamer’s Guardian ESD Guards on the USB ports, audio connectors and Ethernet (LAN) port ensure that A88X-Gamer is actively protected against sudden electrostatic discharge (ESD). The result is that the components last much longer.

A88X-Gamer also has the ASUS-exclusive Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) to enhance performance, increase efficiency and ensure reliability, and a stainless-steel back input/output (I/O) panel that’s chromium-plated and corrosion-resistant to last up to three times (3X) longer than traditional panels.

 

Envelope-pushing APU performance with AI Suite 3

 

A88X-Gamer 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.

Nice review, I had wondered when the H-97 was going to get the AMD treatment I still love the styling of this H97 (A88X) board.Quote

Review? Its a press release fella

It will be good for the likes of the Athlon 860K, hopefully it will be a real budget competitor against the Intel Pentium K.Quote

GOD BLESS they didn't put "cross" in the name

If this motherboard manages to be cheaper than Asrock's Fatal1ty A88x competitor and still achieve the same OCs then it's going to win the budget "gaming" marketQuote

and after officially asking this is what I got :

Dear customer,

According to the further information received from the responsible department does not exist official information about the support of the CPU's. Please you must consider that the 2 CPUs will not be supported from the MB.

is this possible? the 860 is the best candidate for this mobo...I can't belive they are just ignoring him when almost every other motherboard supports him.Quote
