-- Fresh design reflects ASUS’ commitment to the highest standards in quality, performance, reliability, and innovation --
Fremont, CA (May 15th, 2013) - ASUS announces a new design theme for its lineup of mainstream motherboards based on the upcoming Intel® Z87 chipset. Replacing the previous blue-accented color scheme, a distinctive gold application on custom-designed heatsinks serves to highlight the ASUS philosophy of industry leading motherboard design and continuous innovation.
“ASUS-branded motherboards keep evolving and always offer the gold standard in quality, performance, and durability. The new gold color scheme symbolizes this and our insistence on delivering the highest level of innovation and reliability. ASUS motherboards are fully-featured and provide an attractive visual style for a great system building experience”, said Jackie Hsu, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of Worldwide Sales, ASUS Open Platform Business Group.
Elegant color choice makes component matching easier
For nearly a quarter of a century, ASUS has been leading in motherboard design and development while maintaining close ties to the global PC DIY community. Accommodating the needs of system builders the elegant gold color palette works in synergy with black color schemes available in most PC cases. Multi-faceted and multi-tiered, the new gold imbued heatsinks have bigger surface areas for better heat dissipation and improved cooling. As such, ASUS Z87 motherboards are as visually pleasing as they are industry-leading in stability, reliability, and exclusive features.
Do not settle for less
While often imitated but never duplicated, ASUS motherboards offer class leading designs, feature sets and quality that truly sets them apart from competing brands. All ASUS, ROG, TUF, and WS Z87 motherboards feature a rigorous validation process that guarantees the highest quality and compatibility in the industry.
ASUS tests every motherboard series with hundreds of memory, expansion card, and external device combinations from almost every supplier in the market to ensure launch compatibility that continues throughout the life cycle of the product. ASUS motherboards also pass the most demanding stress testing process in the industry, verifying their stability, reliability, and longevity for users now and into the future.
