Singapore (April 8, 2012) — In its fifth successivegeneration, ASUS ROG has launched its Maximus V Series motherboards withthe Maximus V GENE. This micro ATX powerhouse is built using the latestIntel® Z77 chipset, which supports Intel 3rd and 2nd Generation LGA1155processors and PCI-Express Gen-3 for single or multi-GPU. The Republic ofGamers team has endeared the black and red styled Maximus V GENE withexclusive features such as the Extreme Engine DIGI+ II™, SupremeFXIII™ gaming audio, Intel® Ethernet with ROG GameFirst and thenewly added mPCIe Combo™ card.

Give Your PC A Power Up With The ROG Exclusive mPCIe Combo™Card

The mPCIe Combo card is a new innovation by the ROG team, combining thetwin functions of mPCIe with mSATA into a single, extensible add-in cardthat still allows full use of the PCI-Express slots for multi-GPU graphics.With the addition of an mSATA SSD for use with Intel® Smart ResponseTechnology or simply installing the entire OS, this frees up standard SATAports for other uses. The combination of a standard mPCIe socket on theother side allows unique upgrades such as WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G/4G, GPS andother connectivity.

Achieve Better Overclocking From Premium Hardware With An OptimizedDesign

The Maximus V GENE is true to the Republic of Gamers core, as amotherboard built for overclocking. Featuring the upgraded Extreme EngineDIGI+ II™ that includes 8+4+2 phase (CPU, iGPU, DRAM) and precisedigital power control from two DIGI+ controllers combined with ROG UEFIBIOS functions, such as the new pre-configured memory IC profiles, yield afantastic overclocking experience for enthusiasts.

Its 10k Black Metallic capacitors offer a 5x longer lifespan with 10khours at 105C, and 20% better low temperature endurance –specifically selected for extreme cooling scenarios. The DRAM trace layouthas also been further optimized over the previous Maximus IV generation toallow even higher frequencies as well.

SupremeFX III™ Sound – Premium Gaming Audio That TakesSNR To The 110dB Redline

Designed to bring gamers the best possible integrated audio, theSupremeFX III™ sound is a wholly separate sound PCB, identified byits ‘redline’ adjoining the main GENE motherboard. SupremeFXShielding technology maximizes the audio quality by further isolating theaudio processing from EMI, encasing the chipset under an aluminum cap.Combined with a large 1500uF buffer capacitor to provide sufficient energyto even the loudest sounds, SupremeFX III™ attains a lossless audioof up to 110dB SNR.

The addition of X-Fi Xtreme Fidelity, EAX Advanced HD 5.0, CreativeAlchemy and THX TruStudio PRO complete the lineup of audio technologies onoffer.

Intel Ethernet, ROG GameFirst and LucidLogix Virtu MVP

Intel® Ethernet and ROG GameFirst software combines up to 35% savingin CPU usage with network traffic prioritizing, while LucidLogix Virtu MVPsupport enables a new hybrid graphics mode that boosts overall GPUperformance by up to 60%.
