ASUS fortsätter att visa sin kärlek för microATX-marknaden genom att lansera ett andra moderkort i sin Gene-serie. ASUS Maximus II Gene är till skillnad från sitt syskon, Rampage II Gene, riktat mot Intels äldre Core 2-plattform och Sockel 775 processorer. Med Intels P45 styrkrets är Maximus II Gene utrustat till tänderna för både överklockare och spelfantaster, vilket man väntar sig av kort i ASUS Republic of Gamers familj. Bland finesserna hittar vi stöd för CrossFireX, EAX4.0 stöd, samt stöd för upp till 16GB DDR2-minne.

ASUS Expands Its GENE Pool with Second mATX

P45-based ROG Maximus II GENE Offers Souped-up, Space-saving
Performance to Users with Intel® Core™2 Quad and Duo Processors

Taipei, Taiwan, April 14, 2009 – ASUS, the world’s leading
producer of motherboards, today added an integral GENE to its lauded lineup of
ROG (Republic of Gamers) motherboards. Based on the Intel® P45 Express Chipset,
the Maximus II GENE delivers ROG’s legendary stability, overclockability and
flexibility to gamers, case-modders and overclocking enthusiasts with an
affinity for the Intel® Core™2 Extreme/Quad/Duo platform and the mATX form
factor. As with the preceding GENE—the ROG Rampage II GENE—the Maximus II GENE
offers a wealth of high-end features including MemOK!, CPU Level Up, and
SupremeFX X-Fi.

Size Doesn’t Matter

The Rampage II GENE proved that a petite mATX system could outgun a full ATX
tower rig. With the Maximus II GENE, Intel® Core™2 Extreme/Quad/Duo processor
users now have access to the same bragging rights. Despite its compact size, the
Maximus II GENE packs a feature set that surpasses that of many full-sized ATX
motherboards. One such feature is CPU Level Up, a handy utility that boosts CPU
performance to match that of a better, more expensive processor with just a
click or two.

MemOK! Any Memory is A-Okay!

MemOK! was developed to provide users with a worry-free memory upgrade
experience. In the event of a boot failure after installing new RAM, all the
user has to do is press an easily accessible button on the motherboard and
MemOK! will automatically load the failsafe settings needed to ensure a
successful system boot. MemOK! is able to rapidly detect and resolve memory
issues—even if bad or unstable memory is used!

Supreme In-game Audio with SupremeFX X-Fi

SupremeFX X-Fi solution delivers crisp audio and incredibly realistic in-game
sound effects. Official EAX sound effects from EAX 1.0 to EAX HD4.0 allow gamers
to enjoy total immersion in supported games. X-Fi CMSS3D’s groundbreaking
positional audio gives gamers a distinct in-game advantage, while Crystalizer
enhances overall audio quality dramatically.
