Asus Republic of Gamers announces Rampage IV Black Edition E-ATX gaming motherboard to break all limits
Asus Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced Rampage IV Black Edition, an E-ATX gaming motherboard designed to unleash the full power of Intel LGA 2011 Core i7 (Ivy Bridge-E) processors. Based on the Intel X79 Express chipset, Rampage IV Black Edition boasts loads of the best ROG technologies and the latest innovations to improve gaming and maximize overclocking possibilities — all served up in an attention-grabbing black design that’s complemented by gorgeous silver and red highlights.
Rampage IV Black Edition has eight DIMM sockets for up to 64GB of DRAM (DDR3 2800MHz+, overclocked), supports up to 4-way graphics card (multi-GPU) setups, includes Extreme Engine DIGI+ III voltage-regulator module (VRM) for ultra-stable power delivery and benefits from SupremeFX Black, for audio that’s as great as a high-end dedicated sound card. Bundled with a free copy of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag , it is a truly formidable package.
Rampage IV Black Edition has been modeled to delight overclockers. The motherboard is bundled with OC Panel, a real-time system-monitoring and tuning console that’s great for gamers and a huge advantage for overclockers. It can be mounted internally for everyday monitoring of temperatures, base clock and fan speeds with one-click CPU Level Up for an instant speed boost, or used externally for hardcore tweaking to monitor and control multiple parameters via on-machine buttons in real-time. Extreme overclocking has never been easier.
Rampage IV Black Edition has plenty of room for multi-GPU setups, with support for both 4-way NVIDIA SLI and AMD CrossFireX — so gamers can also unleash the full power of the latest graphics technologies. As well as looking fantastic, Rampage IV Black Edition’s new UEFI BIOS is brilliantly easy to use with tons of powerful tuning options and the ability to set up overclocking profiles. Built in to the UEFI BIOS is Secure Erase, a feature that lets users quickly restore SSDs to a factory-fresh condition for the best possible performance.
