Contents (maximize to view)

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) has just announced new generation Intel-based motherboards, power supplies, monitors, and more during its Break All Limits event.

The new Z690 ROG motherboards offer up to 24+1 power stages, support DDR5 memory modules, and PCIe 5.0 devices.

Additionally, they are armed with an exclusive new feature called ASUS Extended Memory Profiles (AEMP). AEMP is a simple setting in the BIOS that can boost DDR5 memory module clock speeds and timing beyond the official limits. This is made possible by unlocking voltage management on the Power Management Integrated Circuit (PMIC).

Stay tuned for our full article on the Z690 ROG motherboards. But now with the motherboards out of the way, here are the rest of the products that ROG launched.

ROG Thor 1600W Titanium and Thor 850W, 1000W, 1200W Platinum II PSUs

The ROG Thor 1600W Titanium presents a new pinnacle of ROG PSU design, while the Thor Platinum II series boasts several enhancements that make the PSUs better.

The ROG Thor 1600W delivers on the Titanium certification thanks to a digital control design infused with precise regulation required by a gaming PC or workstation. In addition, it has solid-state gallium nitride components. The combination of these leads to a 93.54% efficiency at 100% load.

The ROG PSUs are also designed to run fanless at up to 50% load. But as the threshold is crossed, the 1600W, 1200W, and 1000W models use a new 135mm fan built with the latest axial-tech design to circulate air through highly-swept blades, a compact fan hub, and an outer barrier ring. This generates quiet cooling at a given rotational speed.

Meanwhile, large ROG heatsinks help chill discreet ICs and components with more mass and surface area than average, extending the life of those heat-sensitive parts.

The trademark ROG OLED power gauge makes a return across all models this time with an arresting mirrored border. It also has addressable Aura RGB LED lighting also shines through the ROG logo. Aura Sync can seamlessly integrate the display into the rest of a system’s design vision.

It features a 1ms GTG response time and up to 200Hz refresh rate bolstered by ASUS ELMB (Extreme Low Motion Blur) Sync. ELMB enables the simultaneous use of the technology and variable-refresh-rate technology.

It also offers a USB Type-C port which allows you to connect it to a laptop and use it as a secondary display. Additionally, it lets you to use the monitor to act as a USB hub for keyboards, mice, and other peripherals.

The monitor features an integrated KVM switch so keyboards and mice can control two separate PCs that are connected to the monitor with just a switch to toggle input control.

It features an integrated tripod on the stand, which you can use to mount a webcam or microphone for setting up your streaming setup or for your virtual meetings.
