Asus conducts tech seminar, outs Maximus IV Gene-Z, Crosshair V Formula and Matrix GTX 580


So last week amid the fury of Tropical Storm Falcon, Asus conducted a technical seminar for the press and several members of the PC enthusiast community in Mandaluyong, with the aim of familiarizing everyone concerned with their newest motherboards from their ROG, Intel and AMD lineup, as well as introducing the absolutely monstrous Matrix GTX 580.

Included in the seminar were the ROG branded Maximus IV Gene-Z and the Matrix GTX 580 which we found contained in an acrylic case sporting a water cooled cooling system.

The event was also Asus’ opportunity to flaunt three more motherboards – the Crosshair V Formula, The Ultimate Force Sabertooth 990 FX and the P8Z68 V-PRO.

The event also highlighted some of the features of the boards that enthusiasts crave, including Intel’s Smart Response Technology for SSD caching, Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) that allows users to use the BIOS via a graphical UI and Dual Intelligent Processors 2 (DIP 2) with Digi+VRM.
