ASUS Striker Extreme Motherboard Incorporates nForce 680i SLI Chipset

ASUS, the worldwide motherboard leader, today introduced the Striker Extreme, a motherboard specifically designed to simplify the DIY process and add style to gaming systems.

As the newest member of the popular Republic of Gamers (ROG) series, the nForce 680i SLI-based Striker Extreme supports an Intel Quad-Core processor and NVIDIA's Quad-SLI technology, and is ready for the new 1,333MHz FSB specification. Made for gamers and tweakers, the ASUS motherboard provides the power needed for smooth video and extreme performance.
The Striker Extreme series incorporates the following features:

LCD Poster - Easy System Tweaking with Style
LCD Poster is an excellent feature for system tuning and upgrades. Most hardcore users and engineers install a debug card, which displays a two-digit code that enables them to recognize which part of the system is responsible for hanging the system during boot-up. LCD Poster, located at the back I/O, displays the names of each boot-process instead of using codes. When the system hangs due to a faulty connection or configuration, the LCD Poster will freeze on the displayed process name that caused the hang up, allowing users to know exactly what needs to be fixed.

EL I/O and Onboard LED - Easy connection even in the dark
With LAN parties and e-sport tournaments growing in popularity, many gamers and tweakers are finding out that assembling or fine-tuning their computers in dark environments is quite a hassle.  The Striker Extreme incorporates EL I/O to simplify connecting devices by lighting up the back I/O panel, meaning no more jamming devices into the wrong connectors. An onboard LED offers strategically placed LEDs to provide illumination to motherboard labels. Users can turn on the LEDs from a switch on the back I/O. This switch also cuts all other circuits on the motherboard to ensure safety during system tweaking. In addition to allowing easy DIY, the two features jazz up your system's appearance.

Onboard Switch - Turn system on/off, reset and clear CMOS with the push of a button
A power user typically builds a system outside of the case. Hence, he needs to short the front panel pins to power up or restart the system, switch jumpers and pop the battery to clear the CMOS. With the Striker Extreme, that is all accomplished with just the push of a button.

SupremeFX - Great Sounds
The SupremeFX audio card with 24bit/192kHz sampling in all surround channels provides high-quality audio, either through headphones or 7.1 surround sound speakers. The bundled array microphone comes with a background noise filter that detects repetitive and non-voice signals like computer fans and air conditioners, then eliminates them in the incoming audio stream while recording.

Bundled with 3D Games, 3DMark® 06 Advanced Edition, Kaspersky® Anti-Virus
Striker Extreme comes with software that serious gamers will love.  Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter supports advanced physics effects and is currently one of the most popular games. 3DMark is the most popular and authoritative 3D benchmark application used by professionals. 3DMark06 is the latest version in the popular 3DMark series, and includes advanced SM2.0 and HDR/SM3.0 Shader graphics tests and now includes single, multiple core and multiple processor CPU tests. Kaspersky® Anti-Virus Personal offers premium antivirus protection for individual users and home offices. It is based on advanced antivirus technologies. The product incorporates the Kaspersky® Anti-Virus engine, which is renowned for malicious program detection rates that are among the industry's highest.
