    ASUS today launches the ROG TYTAN CG8480 - a gaming desktop with an Intel Core i7-3770K processor with Turbo Gear function that enables full 4-core CPU instant overclocking to reach a maximum speed of 4.2 GHz. It comes equipped with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 2 GB GDDR5 graphics card that supports up to four monitors, while the 128 GB SATA3 SSD delivers greater data access speeds than generic HDDs. Audio quality is further enhanced by an ASUS Xonar DX sound card, providing up to 35 times clearer audio than onboard audio codecs, giving gamers an audio advantage over their opponents. All this powerful hardware is housed within an intricately designed polygonal chassis with built-in indicators that glow from blue to red depending on the overclocking mode it is in.

    ROG quality infused for ultimate stability
    ROG is dedicated to providing stable performance for gamers. Numerous hours are spent on stringent pre-testing, and key components undergo a strict selection process. The intelligent chassis cooling is designed in such a way that cool air will be directed into the system from front grill and hot air will be exhausted out. The additional intricately-designed venting holes along the chassis aid in the overall cooling while the integrated liquid cooled CPU offers efficient and silent heat dissipation. With its intelligent thermal design, integrated liquid cooling and hours of strict pre-testing, the CG8480 is an excellent gaming desktop for gamers.

    Ohhh I loved the Turbo button on my 386. Had to press it if I wanted to play Doom. Nice to see it returning.
