ASRock locally launches Intel 9 series Super Alloy motherboards

ASRock has just held its local launch of its latest Intel 9 series motherboards. Packing Intel’s Z97/H97 chipsets, ASRock’s new boards provide great compatibility and support for Intel’s current Haswell, Haswell Refresh, and upcoming Broadwell processors. Following the same approach, this latest generation also has three series, namely the Extreme series for high-end PCs, the Fatal1ty Killer Gaming series for gamers, and the OC Formula series for overclockers.

Designed with stability and reliability in mind, ASRock includes its Super Alloy technology that includes 12K platinum capacitors that offer a longer life span, NexFET MOSFET for better power control and ESD protection, dual-stack MOSFETs for cooler temperatures and more efficient power delivery, premium alloy chokes for better stability and reliability, and XXL aluminum alloy heatsinks for better heat dissipation.

Not only does ASRock improve the onboard components, it also brings in new storage technologies such as the Ultra M.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 socket and next-gen SATA Express connectors for increased data transfer speeds. Aside from that, flagship boards such as the Z97 Extreme 9 packs a PLX PEX 8747 chip to fully support 4-way SLI and CrossFireX. Onboard audio isn’t left out with ASRock’s Purity Sound 2 which brings in superb 7.1-channel HD audio, 115dB SNR DAC, EMI shield, PCB isolated shielding, DTS connect, and Nichicon capacitors. 

In terms of bundled software, ASRock also includes its own cloud technology (ASRock Cloud) that’s bundled with a 1-year subscription to Orbweb.ME Professional. There’s also the HDD Saver technology, which lets users switch on and off their HDDs via software for better privacy, energy efficiency, life span.
