The new boards looks insane, amazing! Beautiful.

Sad part is you don't do sponsorships tongue.gif So in my case it will be MSI's new M7 board smile.gif


All brands make "OK" ATX boards, but Asus is definitely a clear winner when it comes down to ITX and M-atx boards, they have no competition at all.

That's the thing, you keep holding on to one guy. You don't give anyone else the chance... There are more talented people out there if you (as a company) just cared to look wink.gif



Although, a big applause to the design team of Asus! They sure do know what they are doing! Look at the past 5-6 years compared to this, I can't even imagine what the years after 2020 can give us ohno-smiley02.gif

Thanks for the feedback.

You'd need to talk to ASUS Sweden, as sponsorship is regional, not international. Not a region I cover wink.gif

Looks like a great line up of boards, with some real innovation at places I think. Particularly interesting to see that U.2 port seems dead, in favour for M.2.

As to the big question... will there be an Impact board? And is Gryphon abandoned? I liked the more earthy look of the previous TUF boards, as well.

Thanks for starting this thread, the Apex looks very intriguing for sure, I bet it's a beast
I really like the Extreme board myself
Do you have release dates for any of these boards?
