ASUS Brings Haswell Processor Overclocking to H87 and B85 Motherboards

UEFI BIOS update for ASUS motherboards based on Intel H87 and B85 chipsets unlocks overclocking features for new 4th generation Intel Core K Series chips

Manila (23 July, 2013)ASUS today announced that the latest UEFI BIOS for its motherboards based on Intel® H87 and B85 chipsets unlocks previously inaccessible overclocking features for 4th generation Intel Core™ processors.

Before this update, the overclocking features of new Haswell ‘K Series’ processors could be enjoyed only with motherboards based on the Intel Z87 chipset. Now, however, performance enthusiasts can exploit the power of Haswell K Series processors using ASUS 8 Series motherboards like the ASUS H87M-PRO and B85-PRO.

Extra performance — no extra cost

The BIOS update is a free download for 10 ASUS motherboards — the H87-PRO, H87-PLUS, H87M-PRO, H87M-PLUS, H87M-E, H87I-PLUS, B85-PRO, B85-PLUS, B85M-E and B85M-G.

Once installed, the update enables frequency multiplier-based overclocking in one simple step for unlocked Intel K Series processors such as the Intel Core i7-4770K and Core i5 4670K. The BIOS also includes several features to make life simpler for PC users. A ‘Last Modified’ log makes it easy to determine when and how a particular setting was changed, and custom settings can be saved to a ‘favorites’ list for rapid switching to suit different applications.

All-around protection for superior reliability

All ASUS motherboards based on Intel 8 Series chipsets feature high-endurance 5X Protection technology for the ultimate in reliability and durability. DIGI+ VRM voltage regulation ensures precise digital control over power delivery to the processor for reduced energy consumption and enhanced stability, while resettable fuses protect I/O ports and DIMM slots from short circuits and voltage spikes.

Electrostatic-discharge guards also protect sensitive components from electromagnetic interference and high-quality solid capacitors that are industry-rated for a lifespan for over 50 years of continuous use under typical operating conditions (at 65 degrees Centigrade) — over twice as long as traditional electrolytic capacitors.

The newly enabled overclocking features for Intel Haswell K Series processors and the superior reliability of 5X Protection technology reaffirm the ASUS commitment to giving customers the best in PC performance at a price they can afford.

ANC, YAHOO! PHILIPPINES INK NEWS CONTENT PARTNERSHIP

The Philippines’ most trusted 24/7 news channel ANC, the ABS-CBN News Channel, and Yahoo! Philippines, country’s leading online news site, are joining forces to provide premium news content to online users in the region, and Filipinos around the world.

In a first of its kind collaboration in Southeast Asia between two powerful media voices, the partnership is a step towards making the daily habits of online users around news consumption inspiring and delightful.

The partnership enables Yahoo! Philippines, which has a daily average user base of 2.1 million, to build a strong presence on TV. The move makes ANC its top content partner, providing its network with the latest news and information culled directly from the live on air feed of the award-winning news channel.

Similarly, ANC will have its own section on Yahoo! Philippines News. It will serve as the digital hub of the news channel where users can find online articles, photos, and video clips of news reports, features and interviews aired on ANC.

ANC has been front and center in television news reporting since its launch in 1996. ANC solidified its reputation as the gold standard of news channels in the Philippines by being first-in, last-out in the coverage of all major historical events over the past 17 years. It was also the first Philippine news channel to engage netizens through social networking sites. By partnering with Yahoo!, ANC will be able to leverage Yahoo!’s scale and technology to bring the Philippines’ most trusted source of news to today’s mobile generation of Filipinos.

ANC’s Chief Operating Officer Cilette Liboro-Co said, “The partnership will cement ANC’s position as the most trusted and reliable news source in the country not only on television but also online. With Yahoo! Philippines as our digital hub, we will be able to bring ANC’s expertise in news delivery and analysis to a wider audience.” Liboro-Co added “ANC has a very strong following among digital news consumers that rely on it for credible up-to-the-minute news and we will deliver that and more on the ANC Yahoo! site.”

The partnership demonstrates how Yahoo! is building scale, reaching more targeted audiences, and partnering to deliver the most innovative news content.

Commenting on the partnership, Kate Delos Reyes, Country Manager and Country Editor, Yahoo! Philippines said, “This partnership is a true online and on-air collaboration that aims to reinvent how consumers access news across screens. It will enable us to bring together cutting edge developments in news creation and delivery by combining ANC’s first class journalism and Yahoo!’s enormous scale and technology.” She added, “Every day, millions of Filipinos turn to Yahoo! Philippines for their daily dose of news and we want to continue being a trusted source of news and information for them. Yahoo! is committed to bringing the most personalized and relevant information to our users and this partnership helps us to deliver on that promise.”

Yahoo! is a leader in online news around the world. It has pioneered many content partnerships, such as with ABC News in the USA. Yahoo! creates highly personalized experiences for users, keeping people connected to what matters most to them, across devices and around the world.

ANC Yahoo! goes live on Monday, July 22, 2013.

ASUS Launches GeForce® GTX 760 DirectCU Graphics Card Lineup

GeForce® GTX 760 DirectCU II, GTX 760 DirectCU II OC, and GTX 760 DirectCU Mini bring sweet spot performance and cooling to all PC form factors

Manila (July 17, 2013) — ASUS today announced the GeForce® GTX 760 DirectCU II, GTX 760 DirectCU II OC, and GTX 760 DirectCU Mini graphics cards, based on the latest 28nm NVIDIA® GPU technology. They use 1152 CUDA cores, and have 2GB GDDR5 on a 256-bit memory interface. Exclusive DirectCU coolers ensure up to 20% lower temperatures and twice quieter operation compared to a reference GTX 760.

PR ASUS GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU Mini with box

The DirectCU Mini design has been created especially for small form factor PCs and other situations where gamers have to consider interior chassis spacing while demanding fully-fledged performance. It uses the CoolTech fan for wider heat dissipation and lower in-case temperatures.

All cards feature exclusive Super Alloy Power components to enhance high load endurance and extend graphics card lifespan. They also use Direct Power architecture to increase stability, lower impedance and power delivery latency, and reduce PCB heat levels. For user-friendly overclocking, the GPU Tweak utility enables intuitive adjustment of graphics card settings.

ASUS GeForce® GTX 760 DirectCU II OC: adding to the sweet spot range

Powering the latest DirectX® 11 PC gaming, the GeForce® GTX 760 DirectCU II OC offers customers excellent value. It runs 1072MHz maximum boost on the core and for video memory uses 2GB of 6008MHz GDDR5.

The exclusive DirectCU II cooler has direct GPU-contact copper heatpipes to speed up heat removal, and maintains up to 20% cooler performance than reference. Its dual 80mm fans have been carefully tested to ensure minimized noise, running up to twice quieter than reference requirements. The fans are also dust-proof to reduce debris accumulation. They retain peak performance over a longer lifespan than generic fans.

The card employs exclusive Direct Power architecture, which widens power delivery to offer greater graphics card stability and improved performance with diminished power latency and impedance. The PCB also operates at lower temperatures thanks to better heat spreading, with power routed through more channels than on traditional graphics card designs.

Super Alloy Power components include solid state capacitors, concrete-core chokes, and MOSFETs that use durable materials to easily withstand high temperatures and heavy compute loads. They extend average graphics card longevity by 2.5 times compared to reference.

The ASUS-exclusive GPU Tweak utility brings customers a unified and intuitive control center for overclocking and other tuning needs. Users can set up performance profiles for favorite games, change GPU and memory speeds, regulate fan operation, and define power consumption and heat thresholds.

ASUS GeForce® GTX 760 DirectCU Mini: first small form factor GTX 760

Custom ASUS engineering brings the latest NVIDIA® GPU technology to small form factor gaming PCs. The new card follows the successful ASUS GeForce® GTX 670 DirectCU Mini, ensuring unabridged performance in a space-saving design. At only 17cm x 12cm x 4cm, the GeForce® GTX 760 DirectCU Mini can easily fit even very crowded cases, and presents an optimal choice for mini-ITX discrete graphics. The core runs 1072MHz, with 6008MHz 2GB GDDR5.

Its DirectCU shroud uses a vapor chamber thermal design with flattened heatpipes for faster and more even heat dissipation. The proprietary CoolTech fan combines axial and flower-type blower operation, ensuring wider multi-directional airflow and lessened noise emissions.

Direct Power, Super Alloy Power, and GPU Tweak are included with the GeForce® GTX 760 DirectCU Mini, giving customers the full complement of ASUS-exclusive features.
