 13.11.2014   ASUS annuncia la motherboard TUF Sabertooth Z97 Mark S

ASUS ha annunciato la motherboard in edizione limitata TUF Sabertooth Z97 Mark S, una soluzione high-end che implementa il form factor ATX ed è basata sul chipset Z97 Express di Intel ed è compatibile con i processori socket LGA-1150 appartenenti alle linee commerciali Intel Core i3, i5 e i7 di quarta e quinta generazione, e Intel Pentium e Celeron.

La TUF Sabertooth Z97 Mark S, come tipicamente accade per i prodotti TUF di ASUS, è in grado di esibire una vera e propria armatura di colore bianco (Thermal Armor) che migliora la circolazione dell'aria e quindi il raffreddamento dei componenti posizionati sul PCB.

Ma non soltanto: questa scheda madre include anche un chip (TUF ICe), che monitora e controlla le temperature e le velocità delle ventole, e la tecnologia Thermal Radar 2, con cui l'utente può massimizzare le performance delle ventole, quando è necessario.

La TUF Sabertooth Z97 Mark S di ASUS può vantare la dotazione di uno stadio di alimentazione digitale a 8 + 2 fasi ed è equipaggiata con 4 DIMM che sono in grado di gestire fino a 32GB di RAM DDR3 a 1866MHz e supportano la tecnologia Intel Extreme Memory Profile (XMP).

La TUF Sabertooth Z97 Mark S di ASUS supporta le tecnologie grafiche multi-gpu NVIDIA Quad-SLI e CrossFireX a 4 vie: più in dettaglio, essa include due slot PCI Express 3.0 x16 (che lavorano a 8x se entrambi sono utilizzati, o a 16x in caso contrario), uno slot PCI Express 2.0 x16, che lavora fino a 4x, e tre slot PCI Express 2.0 x1.

Sono infine 8 le porte USB 3.0/USB 2.0 e altrettante quelle USB 2.0/USB 1.1 mentre la connettività di rete wireline viene realizzata con i controller LAN Gigabit denominati Intel I218-V e Realtek 8111GR.

ASUS today announced TUF Sabertooth Z97 Mark S, a Z97 ATX motherboard with a strikingly-white, irresistibly-tough arctic-camouflage design and a limited-edition production run.

The latest ASUS masterpiece features multiple renowned TUF features. These include TUF camouflage-white Thermal Armor with Flow Valve to optimize airflow, Thermal Radar 2 for intuitive fan tuning, a TUF ICe microchip to intelligently monitor and control system temperatures and fan speeds, reinforced camouflage-white TUF Fortifier backplate, high-durability TUF Components and TUF Dust Defenders to prevent airborne particles entering via external ports.

Strikingly white, irresistibly tough and exclusively rare
Sabertooth Z97 Mark S made its first appearance at Computex 2014, where it was exhibited as a concept board bearing the codename 'Sabranco' - a portmanteau of saber and 'branco', the Portuguese word for 'white'.

Responding to the hugely-positive visitor feedback, our engineers refined the design to produce the Sabertooth Z97 Mark S, the very first all-white motherboard in the ASUS TUF series with an extra-special dimension that we know enthusiast PC-builders will love. Innovative printing technology means that Sabertooth Z97 Mark S retains its strikingly-white hue for its lifetime, without discoloring.

Adding to the aesthetic appeal are two traditional Chinese characters adorning the rear side of Sabertooth Z97 Mark S. Carrying the meaning 'tiger spirit', they signify that Sabertooth Z97 Mark S is made with unwavering endurance to survive the most extreme conditions.

Sabertooth Z97 Mark S also has exclusive limited-edition rarity, and every single board will be individually numbered.

The motherboard that keeps as cool as it looks
Sabertooth Z97 Mark S is equipped to keep as cool as its strikingly-white looks. TUF's Thermal Armor with Flow Valve technology is an exclusive arctic-camouflage-style cover with dual fans to boost airflow across the system for maximum heat dissipation. The new board comes with TUF's easy-to-use Thermal Radar 2 software to make quick work of fan tuning for complete system cooling, enabling users to enjoy the perfect balance between quietness, cooling and performance.

Sabertooth Z97 Mark S also has an onboard TUF ICe microchip, which delivers incredibly precise temperature monitoring and fan control whether adjusting settings manually or via Thermal Radar 2's one-click optimization feature.

TUF by name, tough by nature
Sabertooth Z97 Mark S offers great strength and cooling, with exclusive TUF Fortifier technology. This reinforced backplate ensures that the motherboard doesn't buckle under the weight of heavy graphics cards and CPU coolers, minimizing the risk of damaged circuitry from bowing and bending. TUF Fortifier also includes a thermal pad that efficiently directs heat away from the back of the 8+2-phase Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) and other critical components - an innovation that reduces operating temperatures by up to 7°C.

TUF Components ensure that Sabertooth Z97 Mark S is tough enough for the most demanding situations. Japanese-made 10K black metallic capacitors offer 20%-better temperature endurance for a lifespan that's up to five times (5X) longer, and TUF's New alloy chokes are manufactured using high-grade anti-oxidization materials to provide better heat dissipation and unbeatable durability.

Sabertooth Z97 Mark S even includes color-matched white TUF Dust Defenders to cover unused slots, protecting the PC against minuscule particles and environmental contamination - further extending the lifespan of sensitive components.

Server-grade stability that's guaranteed to endure
Sabertooth Z97 Mark S is an enthusiast-level motherboard that delivers server-grade reliability - and that's guaranteed. ASUS engineers put the new motherboard through extensive thermal-shock and stability tests, so users are assured that it will endure even the toughest conditions. Sabertooth Z97 Mark S also benefits from TUF ESD Guards that protect various ports, including USB sockets and audio connectors, from sudden electrostatic discharge.
