Asus Maximus - X38 Republic of Gamers

Asus Maximus - X38 Republic of Gamers

It's not just one click ordering any more...

I Will Call You... MAXIMUS!

<insert operatic music with a wide angled panning shot from above. Possibly some 300-esq slow motion in between. Everyone loves needless slow motion emphasis>

So Asus has named its next Republic of Gamer motherboard the Maximus. In the same vein as the P35 Blitz board, there will be the Formula DDR2 and Extreme DDR3 varieties to choose from.

No word yet on features, cooling or just about anything other than a name and the availability will be "early September". When we enquired about the possibility of the manual being written in Latin or whether you had to fight to the death in order to be worthy of purchasing one, we got a worrying reply: "Yep, I'm getting my gladiator costume ready as we speak;".

Time to stop playing Bioshock, borrow (find?!) a Chariot and get practising, I think. Or, just hop into our forums.

SPAAARRTAAA.. oh hang on, wrong movie.

Well at least they have a sense of humour about such a ridiculously named board. Just wondering what it will offer compared to other boards that will relieve it of the curse that is its name.

Anyway it will be quite expensive and it is outta my league.

P.S. Hi there I am new to the forum. I come from Europe - Bulgaria - nice to meet you British people :). I read this web site often - since about 1-2 years. I just couldn't resist posting so I joined the forums ;)

my name is maximus decimus meridius commander of the armies of the north, general of the felix legions loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.
