ASUS ROG Dominus Pictured, Core i9 XCC Confirmed to Feature 6-channel Memory

This Tuesday at its Computex presser, Intel unveiled an unnamed 28-core/56-thread HEDT (client-segment) processor that's capable of being bench-stable at 5.00 GHz. The chip is a client-segment implementation of the Skylake XCC (extreme core count) silicon, which features 30 Mesh Interconnect "tiles," of which 28 are cores and two integrated memory controllers. The XCC silicon features a 384-bit wide (6-channel) DDR4 memory interface, and it turns out that whatever SKU Intel is planning, will require a different motherboard from your X299 board that can handle up to 18 cores and 4-channel memory. It will require a client-segment variant of the LGA3647 enterprise socket from the Purley platform. One of the first of these is the ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) Dominus.

Clearly bigger than ATX, in being either E-ATX or SSI form-factor, this board draws power from two 24-pin ATX, two 8-pin EPS, and three 6-pin PCIe, and has a gargantuan 16-phase VRM with two fan-heatsink blocks. Six DDR4 DIMM slots flank the socket, three on either side, each with its dedicated 64-bit wide path to the socket. The XCC silicon features a 48-lane PCI-Express gen 3.0 root complex, and so the board could feature at least two PCI-Express 3.0 x16 capable of full bandwidth, among a boat load of PCIe based storage connectivity, and onboard devices.

Update: This motherboard may have been a quick modification of the WS C621E SAGE, by removing one of its sockets, and modifying the rest of the board accordingly. Prototyping a board like that, for a company with ASUS' resources, would barely take 2-3 weeks by our estimate.

ASUS Enters the Premium PSU Market with the ROG THOR 1200W Platinum

ASUS this Computex expanded its Republic of Gamers (ROG) family with not just AIO liquid CPU coolers, but also high-end power-supplies (PSUs). The company showed off its ROG THOR 1200W Platinum, a fully-modular PSU with a design focus on practicality, software interface, 80 Plus Platinum rating, and high-grade components. We hear that under the hood, the OEM is SeaSonic, and that for the most part, this PSU is identical to the Prime Platinum 1200W, with the added digital interface, and aesthetic makeover.

Update: We went hands-on with the ASUS ROG THOR 1200W Platinum, and have more details. To begin with, the PSU features several RGB LED accents all over its body, including an ROG logo, which you control over Aura Sync RGB (for which there's an addressable RGB LED header). The PSU features up to twelve 6+2 pin PCIe connectors, two 4+4 pin EPS, and an OLED display that gives you real-time power-draw readouts. The cooling fan is IP5X dust-proof, and stays off under a load/temperature threshold. You can override the 0 dB mode at the push of a physical button at the back.

ASUS Enters Liquid PC Cooling with the ROG RYUO 120 and RYUJIN 240 AIO Coolers

ASUS added to the very long list of Republic of Gamers (ROG) branded hardware that can make up your gaming PC, with its first directly branded all-in-one liquid CPU cooler, the ROG RYUO 120 and the RYUJIN 240/360. Now, you might be thinking "hey look, it's yet another AIO cooler plastered with an ROG logo, a dash of RGB lighting, and a price-premium to make up for the brand," but pay close attention to the pump-block. It's studded with an actual 1.77-inch full-color OLED display, which shows the ROG logo out of the box, but when interfaced with software over a USB 2.0 header, it displays a host of things such as RPMs, coolant temperature, CPU temperature, a personalized logo, or even an animated GIF! This, besides an addressable RGB ring along the perimeter on the RYUO 120, and a polygonal element on the RYUJIN 240/360. If your interest is only piqued 99% by this point, allow the included Noctua IndustrialPPC fans, and M.2 SSD cooling to make up for the remaining 1% for the RYUJIN series. Not all Asetek-sourced AIO coolers are equal.

ASUS Intros H370 Mining Master Motherboard - Those Aren't USB Ports

ASUS rolled out one of its first crypto-currency miner-friendly motherboards based on the Intel 300-series chipset platform, now that cheaper Pentium Gold and Celeron processors for this platform are available. The H370 Mining Master puts out all 20 PCI-Express gen 3.0 lanes of the H370 Express chipset as x1 slots. It does this in a space-saving way - wiring out each PCIe "port" as USB 3.0 physically (using its 9 pins), which you wire out using USB 3.1 type-A male-to-male cables into open-ended PCIe x1 risers. You can plug in 20 graphics cards over risers, besides a 21st card on the board's PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slot.

The rest of the board is pretty spartan, which is what miners need. The LGA1151 socket is powered by a simple 4+2 phase VRM. Power is drawn from three 24-pin ATX, and one 8-pin EPS. The CPU socket is wired to two DDR4 DIMM slots, supporting up to 32 GB of dual-channel memory, the x16 slot, and the H370 Express chipset. Storage connectivity includes just two SATA 6 Gbps ports. You get six USB 3.0 ports (four on the rear panel, two via headers). Display outputs include DVI and HDMI. Legacy connectivity includes PS/2 combo, and one serial COM header. 6-channel HD audio, and one 1 GbE interface, driven by an Intel i219-V, makes for the rest of it. ASUS threw in onboard power/reset buttons, and POST debug display to sweeten things.

ASUS Intros ROG Aura Terminal

ASUS introduced the Republic of Gamers (ROG) Aura Terminal, an RGB LED control module that puts out four addressable RGB LED channels. This box plugs into one of your motherboard's USB 2.0 headers to interface with Aura Sync RGB software, and power is drawn either from a 4-pin Molex connector (if installed inside your case), or from a 45W power brick (if installed externally).

The ROG Aura Terminal supports up to 90 LEDs per channel, and up to 210 LEDs in all, working out to up to 4.2 meters in addressable RGB LED strips. The package includes two 30 cm and one 60 cm RGB LED strips, a 45W power adapter, a Molex to 2-pin DC adapter, a 9-pin USB 2.0 header to USB type-A adapter, stickers, and cable ties. ASUS Aura Sync RGB software is used to control all outputs from the box, including its glowing ROG logo. You also get ROG Halo, a feature that lets you task RGB LED strips stuck behind your monitor to work as ambient mood-lighting. The company didn't reveal pricing.

ASUS Intros ROG Swift PG27UQ Monitor with G-SYNC HDR

ASUS today introduced the Republic of Gamers (ROG) Swift PG27UQ, a 27-inch monitor with 4K Ultra HD resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels), a staggering 144 Hz refresh-rate, and support for NVIDIA G-Sync HDR. Under the hood is an IPS Quantum-Dot panel with DCI-P3 Color Gamut support, 4 ms response time, 178°/178° viewing angles, and 10-bpc (1.07 billion colors) support. 300-1000 cd/m² maximum brightness, and 20,000:1 static contrast ratio, make for the rest of the panel specifications.

The monitor features (and requires) DisplayPort 1.4 to sustain 4K @ 144 Hz with 10-bpc color. It also features HDMI 2.0. Also featured are GamePlus (OSD goodies), GameVisual (genre-specific display presets), a and 2-port USB 3.0 hub. The stand and the back-side of the display features RGB LED elements that can be controlled by Aura Sync RGB. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Where AREZ Thou, GPP? ASUS 180's, Announces ROG Branding is Here to Stay

Well, if doubts ever existed, those have been somewhat dispelled in recent times, but this must be the final nail in the GPP coffin. Hopefully, it's also the proverbial nail to show customers Green, Red and Blue (seldom-remembered Intel was also a target) of what exactly NVIDIA's program entailed. NVIDIA found itself in a rather embattled field against tech publications and consumers alike when the first match was lit on what GPP was and what it forced NVIDIA partners to do with their brands. Turns out exclusively aligning them with NVIDIA products would give incredibly relevant advantages compared to partners who didn't, forcing an otherwise healthy ecosystem to converge on the dominant market player.

After around two months of story coverage, NVIDIA terminated the GPP program - begrudgingly so, and seemingly forgetting everything about the way things are meant to be played. However, some AMD partners had already announced some exclusive AMD-branded graphics cards, with new, market recognition-absent brands such as ASUS's AREZ and (it all seems to point that way) MSI's MECH 2 series of graphics cards. What were they to do in the wake of GPP's earlier-than-expected burial? These companies spent marketing and design funds to come up with new brands and designs, after all.
UPDATE (22/05): ASUS informed us that the tweet which was the basis of the original report is not operated by ASUS. The company stated that it will continue to sell ASUS ROG and AREZ branded graphics cards side-by-side. ASUS is in the process of getting Twitter to take down the impersonating handle.

Jonsbo Intros NC-2 Memory Heatsink for RGB Heathens

The price-gap between basic DDR4 memory modules that even lack heatspreaders, and "premium" modules with RGB LED-studded heatspreaders, can be rather big. For those who'd prefer to pick up cheaper memory modules and light them up on the cheap, Jonsbo has come up with its second-generation RGB LED custom memory heatspreaders, with the NC-2, a successor to the NC-1 series from last year. A pack includes two units, for dual-channel memory setups. Each heatspreader consists of two brushed aluminium plates meeting on top, through which a chunky RGB LED diffuser peeks out.

The NC-2 features 256-color RGB LEDs, and comes in two variants based on control. The first variant is a "color" variant, or the "dumb" variant, which gives you limited manual control over pre-loaded lighting presets. The second, slightly pricier variant, is the "smart" variant, which takes input from ASUS Aura Sync RGB, over a standardized 4-pin header, giving you software control. Measuring 141 mm x 8.5 mm x 43 mm (WxDxH), each heatspreader weighs roughly 114 g. The NC-2 series starts around 80 RMB ($13 USD) for the basic variant, and around 120 RMB ($20 USD) for the Aura Sync-capable variant, which is a bargain, when you consider that RGB-enabled memory kits can be 20-30% pricier than basic ones that lack RGB lighting.
