ASUS ROG Blitz Extreme motherboards launched

Posted on Thursday, July 05 2007 @ 21:27:08 CEST by


Asus unveiled its new Republic of Gamers Blitz Extreme motherboard which has interesting new features like Crosslinx and a Fusion Block System which keeps the board cooler.
Crosslinx Technology Enables Full Graphics Potential
Built for extreme gaming, the ROG Blitz Extreme motherboard provides excellent graphical support with multiple GPU support – the standard for power gaming users. Traditional Intel P35 motherboards can only support PCIe x16 and x4 lanes – limiting performance outputs. The ROG Blitz Extreme on the other hand, is able to utilize ASUS’s exclusive Crosslinx technology that features a dedicated graphics controller to optimizes PCIe allocation with dual x8 lanes. This enhanced dual x8 graphics resolves bottlenecks in performance and exceeds x16 and x4 solutions – providing higher frame rates for better gaming experiences.

Better Thermal Performance with Dual Path Cooling Solution
The ASUS Fusion Block System works by utilizing a sophisticated heatpipe system with a waterblock cooling solution that connects the waterblock to the watercooling circuit without requiring the purchase of an extra chipset waterblock. Not only does this save the user money, it also provides users with 47% lower temperatures in comparison to pure heatpipe cooling designs. Building on the ROG’s unique heatpipe system, the Fusion Block System provides a dual path cooling system; with just one extra connect to the Fusion Block System, users will be able to cool down MOSFET, Northbridge & Southbridge at the same time – allowing gamers to achieve maximum performance while keeping their PCs cool.
There are three different versions: the Blitz Extreme, Formula and Formula (Special Edition).

Let's just hope it's not another Stinker, err, Striker Extreme.
