Asus Unveils Three New Pro Gaming Motherboards With Support for DDR4 Memory and M.2 SSDs
Asus has unveiled three new small form-factor gaming motherboards that come packed with the latest technologies and exclusive features. Based on the Intel B150 chipset, all three Pro Gaming boards support the high-speed DDR4 memory, and include the newest NVM Express (NVMe) M.2 connectivity for transfer speeds of up to 32Gbps.
The mini-ITX ASUS B150I Pro Gaming/WiFi/Aura and B150I Pro Gaming/Aura come with the all-new Aura RGB lighting effects, including Comet, Flash and Dash, Rainbow Wave, Starry Night and Glowing Yo-Yo. B150I Pro Gaming/WiFi/Aura features built-in 2×2 (2T2R) 802.11ac Wi-Fi with Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) for better range and reliability.
The Pro Gaming/Aura board, though won’t offer wireless option, you can still make use of the Intel Gigabit Ethernet with LANGuard for surge-protection. The B150M Pro Gaming on the other hand is available in a slightly larger and more upgradeable micro-ATX form-factor.
Other key features of these new boards from Asus are:
- Aura RGB lighting: Integrated LEDs to create all-new illumination effects with B150I Pro Gaming/WiFi/Aura and B150I Pro Gaming/Aura
