Asus ROG launches Maximus V GENE motherboard (LGA1155) in India

Asus Republic of Gamers (ROG) has launched its first fifth-generation Maximus motherboard, called the Maximus V GENE, a micro ATX based on the Intel Z77 chipset, with support for Intel 3rd and 2nd Generation LGA1155 processors and PCI-Express Gen-3 for single or multi-GPU. It has been priced at Rs. 15,350 (excluding taxes), and will ship with a three-year warranty.

The Asus ROG Maximus V GENE comes with Extreme Engine DIGI II, SupremeFX III gaming audio, Intel Ethernet with ROG GameFirst, and LucidLogix Virtu MVP, which enables a new hybrid graphics mode that boosts overall GPU performance by up to 60%.
The Maximus V GENE motherboard supports the newly added mPCIe Combo card, which combines the twin functions of mPCIe with mSATA into a single, extensible add-in card that still allows full use of the PCI-Express slots for multi-GPU graphics. This, coupled with Intel Smart Response Technology, will free up standard SATA ports and standard mPCIe sockets for other uses, such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and other connectivity.
Vinay Shetty, Country Head, Component Business, Asus (India), spoke on the launch: “The Asus ROG Maximus V GENE features the Extreme Engine DIGI II power control design, SupremeFX III gaming audio, Intel Ethernet with ROG GameFirst software and the newly added mPCIe Combo card and has nearly all the connectivity of larger ATX motherboards and yields a fantastic overclocking experience for overclockers and enthusiasts. Designed for gamers, this board provides great graphics performance and we're pleased to offer this motherboard to our customers in India.”
