The Republic of Gamers (RoG) has come out firing on the Intel Z77 chipset once again with the Asus RoG Maximus V Formula.
As if the price hadn't given it away, Asus' Republic of Gamers Xonar Phoebus is a very high end soundcard.
Small in stature, the Maximus V Gene packs a very hefty punch, delivering great stock performance and impressive auto-OC too.
The Rampage IV Formula is the first of the Republic of Gamers boards we've seen tailored to Intel's X79 specs and we were hoping for something a little more impressive. Especially given that £300+ price tag.
The Crosshair V has got just about everything you could wish for to build a high end system around. It's fast, endlessly teakable and even has a decent on board sound chip. The price isn't terrible either, unless you're a die hard bargain hunter that it.
If you are in the market for a new gaming laptop, then you may well be intrigued by the news that Asus has revealed the world's first glasses-free 3D laptop at Computex in Taipei this week.
Asus has announced a slew of additions to its Republic of Gamers range - including the Rampage III Black Edition motherboard, a gaming headset , monitor, router and the ROG Matrix GTX 580 graphics card.
Can this excellent flagship Republic of Gamers board revive hardcore interest in HydraLogix technology?
