blitz extreme ASUS Launched Blitz Extreme & P5K Premium

In order to cater to increasing demands of gaming enthusiasts for an
outstanding gaming performance motherboard, ASUS has today released the brand
new ROG Blitz Extreme motherboard. State-of-the-art technologies like Crosslinx
overcome bottlenecks in performance while the revolutionary Fusion Block System
allows the Blitz Extreme to operate at cooler temperatures. All these advantages
add up to provide gamers with a better gaming and overclocking experience.

Crosslinx Technology Enables Full Graphics Potential

Built for extreme gaming, the ROG Blitz Extreme motherboard provides excellent
graphical support with multiple GPU support – the standard for power gaming
users. Traditional Intel P35 motherboards can only support PCIe x16 and x4 lanes
– limiting performance outputs. The ROG Blitz Extreme on the other hand, is able
to utilize ASUS’s exclusive Crosslinx technology that features a dedicated
graphics controller to optimizes PCIe allocation with dual x8 lanes. This
enhanced dual x8 graphics resolves bottlenecks in performance and exceeds x16
and x4 solutions – providing higher frame rates for better gaming experiences.

Better Thermal Performance with Dual Path Cooling Solution

The ASUS Fusion Block System works by utilizing a sophisticated heatpipe system
with a waterblock cooling solution that connects the waterblock to the
watercooling circuit without requiring the purchase of an extra chipset
waterblock. Not only does this save the user money, it also provides users with
47% lower temperatures in comparison to pure heatpipe cooling designs. Building
on the ROG’s unique heatpipe system, the Fusion Block System provides a dual
path cooling system; with just one extra connect to the Fusion Block System,
users will be able to cool down MOSFET, Northbridge & Southbridge at the same
time – allowing gamers to achieve maximum performance while keeping their PCs
cool.

The ASUS ROG Blitz series of motherboards also comes in two other versions – the
ROG Blitz Formula and the ROG Blitz Formula (Special Edition). Both versions
will come with Crosslinx, however only the ROG Blitz Formula (Special Edition)
will contain the Fusion Block System.
