ASUS gets set to give X58, R.O.G treatment

 

ASUS' Rampage II Extreme will apparently be one of the elite motherboard solutions touting for the attention of enthusiasts and overclockers alike, boasting a myriad of features to help end-users tap into the potential of Intel's Nehalem microarchitecture.

 

Alongside 16-phase CPU power delivery and 3 phase QPI/VTT bus power delivery (enabled via a nifty plug-in module), intensive gaming will not be neglected either, with mention of three PCI-Express slots apparently supporting all forms of CrossFire and SLI.

 

Whilst launch and pricing information is understandably unavailable at the time of going to press, $300 upwards is the expected price point to aim for.
