21 July 2011 – ASUS and AMD came down to Ngee Ann Polytechnic to give a product talk on their latest lineup of motherboards and processors respectively. AMD introduced their latest A-series APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) processors while ASUS introduced their latest motherboards for AMD’s AM3+ and FM1 sockets.
Following that, Ginli from ASUS presented the latest AMD A-series chipset motherboards with the FM1 socket.
As expected, ASUS implemented their award-winning features on the new motherboards, starting with the DIGI+ VRM, EPU and TPU Processors, offering the highest system stability, power efficiency and optimised performance respectively for hardware enthusiasts and ordinary users alike. The exclusive UEFI BIOS offers a graphical interface, mouse control and supports HDDs above 2.2TB in size. The innovative MemOK! allows even ordinary users to troubleshoot boot failures easily with an LED light to show the problem area and a one-button rescue tool which automatically fixes the problems with the DRAM instantly. No wonder ASUS is the number 1 in brand and market share for motherboards.
A lucky winner of the day received an AMD Phenom II 6-core processor for answering multiple questions posed by both AMD and ASUS correctly.
The event ends with a group photograph of some of the attendees with the representatives from ASUS and sums up this interesting event.
