"In the quest to cut down on shipping waste Taiwan's Asus has a novel idea: What if the shipping container became the PC case? That's the idea behind a box the company will begin using from June to ship one of its Mini ATX motherboards. It holds the motherboard snug for shipping and is constructed so additional components required to make a PC can be added, said Debby Lee, a spokeswoman for the Taipei-based company."
USB 3.0 onboard
ASUS has launched its new ASUS P7F7-E WS SuperComputer motherboard.
The motherboard maximises transmission speeds by integrating USB 3.0, SATA 6G storage interface, and IEEE 1394b FireWire standard. It comes equipped with the LGA1156 socket and the latest Intel 3450 chipset with onboard graphics.
No before you start to stress -- it simply means that motherboard manufacturing would become outsourced rather then self (in-house) made. Anyway, xbitlabs is reporting that Asustek decided to completely spin off its mainboards and graphics cards manufacturing arm Pegatron Technologies, the company said this week.
ASUS, today unveiled the first motherboard in its newly-developed "TUF" (The Ultimate Force) Series, the SABERTOOTH 55i. The TUF Series is specially developed to meet the heavy computing demands of power users and perform well even under extreme conditions. Such computer enthusiasts often demand high-quality motherboard components and the most stable computing platforms. To achieve uncompromising stability, TUF Series motherboards have undergone a more stringent testing program than what most motherboard producers currently undertake.
