Axiz has announced the arrival of the ultimate in gaming experiences – the
ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) Maximus ll Formula series motherboard.
Equipped with an Intel P45 chipset and supporting DDRll memory, this
cutting-edge piece of hardware provides exceptional gaming performances and
outstanding audio quality.
Axiz Product Manager for Motherboards and Chassis Glenn Ferreira explains
that the superior audio is delivered through an innovatively-designed
SupremeFX X-Fi audio card. The inclusion of ground-breaking CPU Level Up
technology allows gamers to obtain flexible CPU boosts – without any
complicated setups. Additionally, the Extreme Engine power design provides
stable voltages for reliable operations.
"In the ROG Maximus II Formula, the bundled new SupremeFX X-Fi audio card
provides gamers with life-like sound effects and 3D surround sounds to fully
immerse them into their games," Ferreira says. "With an emphasis on
high-quality design, the Supreme FX X-Fi utilises the ADI 2000B audio codec,
Creative X-Fi suite, CMSS3D and Crystaliser technologies, and authentic EAX
sound effects to produce top-notch virtual 3D surround sounds to bring
gamers one step closer to 'really being there'."
CPU Level Up allows gamers to easily obtain CPU boosts to suit their needs
through selecting their preferred model from a list in the BIOS. Once it is
chosen, the system will do the rest of the work and fine-tune the original
processor to run at the speed of the desired CPU.
ASUS' engineering expertise has culminated in the new ROG Extreme Engine, a
next-generation multi-phase power design that provides additional
overclocking headroom for extreme user experiences.
"Comprising of a 16-phase power design for the CPU, two-phase for memory and
three-phase for the north bridge, Extreme Engine will provide users with
additional voltage options in the BIOS for higher performances," Ferreira
says. "With only the best quality components used, stable power to
components provides reliable operations; while a power efficiency of up to
96% and automatic power management ensure less energy is wasted and less
The Maximus ll Formula will be on the shelves by the end of July, at a
