ASUS plans to ship GPU supports with next generation motherboards

 
ASUS has revealed their new ROG themed GPU supports, which the company plans to bundle with their next generation Republic of Gamers motherboard designs. 
 
These new GPU supports will help users create a sturdy system and prevent GPU sag by giving their GPU additional support from underneath. As you can see this new support can be moved up and down the user's PCIe mounts to support GPUs with varying cooler thicknesses, though users will need to be careful as the bracket could interfere with the fans on certain GPU designs. 

  

ASUS plans to ship GPU supports with next generation motherboards

 

Looking at the image above we expect this new bracket to ship first with Intel's new X299 Strix and ROG motherboards, which should be officially revealed later this week.

I am currently planning a Ryzen build with the Crosshair VI (AC-WiFI) and a Asus Strix Gtx 1080 ti. It would be nice " customer service " for them to offer that GPU bracket as well considering every single pic I see with their 1080 ti Sags. Or at least offer free shipping to those with proof of purchase. Just 2 Asus parts will cost over $1,450 CANQuote

Or...just don't make them so darn heavy and filled with iron shrouds. I had one made and it didn't work much. It was very well built from that custom shop in Portugal but cards can get too heavy sometimes.

In short, this one looks nice however I remain skeptical for the time being.Quote

it could help, but it's the other end of the GPU that suffers mostly from GPU sag. INWIN supply their 303 with a GPU support for the correct end that actually worksQuote

MNPCTech have a solid aluminium GPU support bracket you can buy. It supports the GPU at the end that usually sags.Quote
