Mumbai, India, January 20, 2015: ASUS announces the A88X-Gamer in India – targeted specifically at the gamers. It is equipped with the latest Intel Gigabit Ethernet networking for fast, lag-free online-gaming experiences, exclusive SupremeFX technology for flawless gaming audio and exclusive Gamer’s Guardian components for exceptional durability and reliability. It also includes the ASUS-exclusive AI Suite 3 software to unleash the true power of AMD accelerated-processing units (APUs).
A88X-Gamer players benefit from exclusive SupremeFX technology for near-lossless audio with a remarkable signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 115dB — so gamers hear every sound detail.
The advanced audio chipset is isolated from electromagnetic interference (EMI) by a protective shield, preserving the integrity of the audio signals. Exclusive ‘red-line shielding’ horizontally separates SupremeFX audio components from the rest of the motherboard. This unique combination effectively eliminates analog interference to ensure flawless sound quality. Premium ELNA audio capacitors are added to the mix to deliver a warmer, natural sound to complete the audio experience.
SupremeFX also has a built-in amplifier that drives high-quality headphones — all the way up to 300ohm impedance — for sound quality that’s as great as a dedicated sound card.
A88X-Gamer’s networking is powered by Intel Gigabit Ethernet. This has the advantage of communicating directly with Intel processors to offer exceptionally-high Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) throughput, lowering overall processing demands and improving efficiency — releasing more power for games and gameplay.
Gamer’s Guardian components
A88X-Gamer is engineered with high-quality, highly-durable Gamer’s Guardian components for exceptional real-world protection.
Gamer’s Guardian includes onboard resettable fuses that protect the connection ports and DRAM against overcurrent and short-circuit damage, while exceptionally high-quality, Japanese-made 10K black-metallic capacitors offer greater temperature endurance and improved lifespans.
Gamer’s Guardian ESD Guards on the USB ports, audio connectors and Ethernet (LAN) port ensure that A88X-Gamer is actively protected against sudden electrostatic discharge (ESD). The result is that the components last much longer.
A88X-Gamer also has the ASUS-exclusive Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) to enhance performance, increase efficiency and ensure reliability, and a stainless-steel back input/output (I/O) panel that’s chromium-plated and corrosion-resistant to last up to three times (3X) longer than traditional panels.
Envelope-pushing APU performance with AI Suite 3
A88X-Gamer includes AI Suite 3, an ASUS-exclusive dashboard-style control panel that lets gamers fine-tune almost every aspect of A88X-Gamer-based systems for the best balance between performance, stability and efficiency — all via a simple and intuitive interface.
Pricing and Availability
The ASUS A88X-Gamer is priced at Rs 8,750 and will be available starting February. The motherboard will also carry a 3-year warranty.
