Asus G-Surf365 - a low-end ROG motherboard

Posted on Monday, December 03 2007 @ 12:21:44 CET by

Asus' lineup of Republic of Gamers (R.O.G.) motherboards consists of fairly highly-priced motherboards but the new Asus G-SURF365 motherboard seems to be an exception.

FUD Zilla reports this is a quite odd low-end motherboard with limited features and connectivity that has been specifically designed for LAN gamers. The motherboard uses the GeForce 7050P + nForce 630 chipset (although this is still subject to change) and features only two memory slots, a single PCI Express x16 and two PCI slots.

The motherboard uses the ATX form factor but has a very limited amount of connectors on the back.
However, this isn't the selling point here, as the board is meant to appeal to those that are looking to build an affordable, secure, LAN party system. Secure you ask? Yes indeed, if you look closely next to the RAM slot, there are two red squares as well as that odd red connector on the back, guess what those are for.

Asus has added some special plastic brackets and screws with the board that allows you to lock your memory modules into place. The red connector around the back will allow you to secure your mouse and keyboard or anything else you've got connected to the system, although we're not quite sure how that will work. Not a bad idea and it's the first time we've seen such a concept, but we'd liked to have seen it on a slightly better board.
