So, if you have an idea for a mouse, just lay that out to spec. Be as detailed as you can. Same goes for monitors, motherboards, GPUs, etc.

You are only going to get ideas for small and very specific niche products here...

Your marketing department should be targeting your consumer base and not this small cove for insight...

Mookster has the right idea. Either hire a consultant or keep it inhouse and have your marketing department conduct product research...

Call me when you offer MXM 3.0a/b or rPGA / LGA enclosed systems

Otherwise I could care less what you offer.

We've already been there done that... I'm eager to open things up, even if it's small or limited.

Not sure about that. Last time I spoke to the teams about it, there was some reluctance due to burn-in. If things change, Im sure we'd do it.

That's kind of a longshot suggestion though, as I know y'all like in-house multi-driver designs, but I also know the audio buffs here on OCN would recommend an orthodynamic ROG headset in a heartbeat.

I've seen some interesting third-party options for HRTF. We currently have HRTF within the sonic studio audio package. I'm open to pitching some of the third-party solutions to the team, though.

I haven't tested Atmos for headphones fully, yet. It's certainly technically better than Dolby Headphone. My current drug of choice is Out of your head, which is '7.1 channel.'

Most of the digital products one would attach to PCs use USB... Haven't seen anything new that uses S/PDIF, but I know it can be easier/cheaper to get S/PDIF right than USB for audio.

Some of the latest boards to quote the line-in SNR, but yes, it's the mic input that matters more...

Ah yes, out of your head is excellent! Haven't compared it to Dolby Atmos myself actually, I'm not sure how it stacks up.

As for SPIDF, yeah, I only mentioned it because some USB devices tend to have buggy drivers, whereas SPIDF just always seems to work, on any OS. More and more powered speakers are getting digital input (both USB and SPIDF), and I think I've seen it on some headset input boxes too. Not really a big deal though, as all your mobos have internal headers anyway.



Can't wait for the OLEDs to come, whenever it happens.

Raja I'd love proper driver support from Asus you guys have great hardware but the software area is lackluster at times. Also quality control at times leaves to be missing I got a mg279q took 2 + panels to not have too many dead pixels

A motherboard like the Maximus IX Apex for the new HEDT (x299) stuff. And each upcoming Z and X chipsets biggrin.gif

And maybe a AM4 equivalent would be bonkers too.

In general, thanks for making true OC focused products like the Apex thumb.gif

I think the main area Asus (at least USA) needs to work on is customer service. Getting ahold of someone competent whether by email or phone is important, and the warranty claims process is like a relic from the 90s.

Advanced RMA on an Asus "rapid eplacement" monitor should be a simple webpage to fill out. Instead, you have to get transferred through 10 people before finding someone who knows what it is, and then they want to fax you a 10 page form to fill out. It's just a mess.

Otherwise, a no compromise overclocking oriented (high memory frequency!) X299 board like the Z270 Apex please. smile.gif
