One of the highlights at ASUS booth is certainly Blitz Extreme and Blitz
Formula boards, part of their successful R.O.G line-up. The Blitz Extreme board
features a Fusion Block System that allows a combination of watercooling with
heatpipes to cool down the VRM, NB and SB. There is an interesting Crosslinx
Technology that allows x8/x8 equal PCIe lanes on P35 chipset to remove x16/x4
bottlenecks for better graphics performance. We heard that it is pretty
challenging to implement this technology as circuitry needs to be re-routed and
additional components have to be added to ensure signal integrity. ASUS has also
step up to 2-phase power for memory which suppose to enhance memory
overclockability. The boards come with free STALKER and 3DMark2006 Advanced
Edition too.
