ASUS to include external power card in ROG line

ASUS to include external power card in ROG line

Overclocking brings more performance across the table and this is a well-known fact around the world but as the saying “there’s no free lunch” goes to overclock well you need expensive, stable and powerful hardware. Sometimes, however, no matter which overclocking motherboard you choose, it cannot provide enough power to the overclocked CPU or GPU, which definitely ruins the fun of overclocking.

Don’t get desperate so fast – EVGA and Gigabyte have started providing external power cards that fix this limitation and now ASUS joins the company too. The new ASUS external power card will belong to the company’s high-end Republic of Gamers (ROG) line and will be known as ASUS ROG Power Card. Once released the card will provide its users with single 8-phase output, output voltage of 0-2.5V, output current up to 500A, on-board voltage control/monitoring, 6x hotwire connectors for auxiliary VRMs and the capability to upgrade the firmware. Furthermore there are output voltage setting/monitoring, output voltage offset switches (+0.4V, +0.3V, +0.2V, +0.1V), a safety switch (limits the voltage to maximum 1.4V), output current monitoring, VRM temperature monitoring, load-line calibration (0%, 60%, 80%, 100%) and hotwire setting/monitoring. As you can see there are tons of features and options.

The new ASUS card will be released sometime in 2015. No word on pricing as of now.
