ASUS Receives Six Innovation Awards at CES 2012 James White January 12, 2012 Press Release ASUS managed to received six of these awards for a range of products they released to the market in 2011. These devices all bring something to their relative markets that has never been seen before. The Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF201 is a Nvidia Quad-core Tegra powered tablet, but can be attached to a docking station to become a well equipped netbook. The ASUS Padfone is a wireless handset running the Android operating system that separated itself from the pack with a docking station that seamlessly turns it into a tablet. Also released in 2011 is the Xonar Essence One Hi-Fi DAC that features an 8x symmetrical upsampling. It can transform your 48/96/192 kHz audio input to 384 kHz with a 120 dB SNR (signal to noise ratio). This could dramatically improve audio quality for that flawless studio sound. Then on the area of personal computer components we have the ASUS ROG Mars II based on two Nvidia GTX 580 with 3 GB of video memory. It has 21-phase Super Alloy Power technology, DirectCU II thermal cooling, and a very well built GPU tweaking tool. This was one GPU that proved GPU manufacturers can do far more than just solder chips onto pre-designed PCBs. Then two motherboards from ASUS were awarded for their innovative approaches. The Rampage IV with its exclusive OC Key brings all of your overclocking options to your screen via an OSD (On Screen Display) for quick, easy access to these controls at all times. It also boasts the ability to use either a LGA 2011 or LGA 1366 cooling bracet for simple CPU cooling solution transitions. The ASUS P9X79 Deluxe is honored for its unparalleled UEFI BIOS. It is very clear ASUS is some talent in their development department and I can’t wait to see what else they bring to the table for CES 2012. Share This With The World!
