ASRock’s made a big push today at the recently concluded Philippine leg of their Fatal1ty Global tour held in the EDSA Shangri-La with the release of their Gen3 motherboard series, which included the Fatal1ty branded version that’s going to be marketed towards competitive gamers.
The company is particularly proud of the new tech in the boards which they say will be the first such board to work with PCI Express 3.0 specification, offering more bandwidth to enable faster communication between components inside a system.
Also present during the event was Jonathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel, who has collaborated with ASRock to release motherboards aimed at competitive gamers.
His Fatal1ty line of boards which include the Fatal1ty Z68 Professional Gen3 and the Fatal1ty 990FX Professional have all the bells and whistles that you’d expect from a high-end, gaming board which include hi-end components and construction.
Noteworthy features of the new boards include XFast Lan, which ASRock helps in reducing latency in games by prioritizing gaming traffic, XFast USB which boosts the access speeds for USB and NVIDIA’s NF200 chip which generates more PCI-E lanes for SLI and CrossFireX setups. Unfortunately, there’s no word on pricing and availability yet.
