Over at the ASUS booth, they have some impressive displays of motherboards and video cards. Some of the highlights were of course the NVIDIA GTX 295 and GTX 285 cards, as well as some cards designed with overclocking and monitoring features from the ASUS Republic of Gamers series. When it comes to motherboards, there are some real nice products coming out. For all of you who just picked up the new AMD Phenom II processor, or are thinking of getting one, ASUS has designed the new M4A79 Deluxe 790FX chipset board that incorporates an 8+2 Phase design, which allows for more stability and better overclocking. For you Intel lovers there is a nice selection for you as well with the P6T Deluxe/OC Palm Edition. This board is based on the X58 chipset and has a real-time overclocking controller for on-the-go overclocking without having to shut down and reboot. Another nice X58 board ASUS has on display is the Rampage II Extreme. This board supports Triple-SLI and also has an overclocking controller, but with a lot more control over your board than usually found, and the ability to constantly monitor it for stability. Lastly, ASUS has some portable computers on display, including the Eee PC T91 and the Bamboo Series PC, the latter of which has a case made from, you guessed it, bamboo.
