ROG hits the road with mini ITX - Size is no longer any indicator of performance
They said it couldn’t be done, but ROG’s devoted crew of designers and engineers has finally delivered on the dream of a proper mini ITX gaming board. New IMPACT gets its name from the strong impression it leaves wherever it goes: mostly LAN parties and gaming tournaments. Even more compact than GENE boards, IMPACT balances great performance with excellent stability, power efficiency, and thermal innovation. It fits in highly elegant and portable slim-form HTPC and shuttle PC cases, but at the same time retains ROG luxury, so that being a traveling or couch-bound living room champion becomes easier than ever.
SupremeFX Impact - Blade of sound adds striking game audio
ROG upscales audio on mini-ITX, bringing you best-in-class 115dB SNR sound with the included SupremeFX Impact sound card.
Exclusive differential circuit design plus four Op-Amps for the back I/O and front panel headphone-out ensure lossless multi-channel gaming audio with exceptional clarity and fidelity regardless of which port you choose to use. The audiophile-grade TI LM4562 Op-Amp also boosts high-end headphone enjoyment with up to 600ohm impedance, finer detail, and stronger bass. SupremeFX shielding technology physically blocks digital signals from interfering with analog sources, while an added metallic cover placed over the SupremeFX chip deflects EMI. ELNA premium audio capacitors are added to the mix to deliver heart-pumping gaming performance with warmer, more natural sound to complete sonic experiences.
Newly-developed Music PnP allows you to enjoy stereo audio stream forwarding to speakers with your PC turned off by directly connecting audio devices to the front panel MIC-IN, thus saving power while still tuned in to favorite tracks and making your Impact board a true home entertainment media center.
Sonic Radar - Scan and detect to dominate
Sonic awareness can make or break online combat, so we've developed a stealthy overlay that shows you what opponents and teammates are up to. Gunshots, footsteps, and call outs appear with precise directioning on the on-screen radar, which gives you the advantage of better intelligence and avoiding sneaky opponent surprises. Even snipers can't get away that easy!
Impact Power - Compact dynamo of full-scale power
ROG engineers reshape Extreme Engine Digi+ III with Impact Power vertical architecture without sacrificing stability, overclocking, and precision on mini-ITX – you get the same vaunted overvolting and overclocking flexibility you expect from any ROG board.
Impact Power also utilizes the best components for precise CPU/memory digital power control. BlackWing chokes can handle as much as 60A of power, or double generic chokes! A special fin design results in 3-5C lower choke temps for added stability, which is increased exponentially by use of highly conductive and efficient gold-treated coating, translating into minimal-loss power delivery. Super-premium 10K Black Metallic solid state capacitors are forged for overclocking and the most extreme demands, lasting up to 5X longer than generic capacitors with 20% wider temp tolerance.
mPCIe Combo II + Wi-Fi 802.11ac/Bluetooth 4.0 - Extra connections with new gen support
The next evolution of the mPCIe Combo card gives you even better expandability with the latest standards in connectivity. You get mini PCI Express 2.0 plus USB 2.0 with an included dual-band 2.4GHz/5GHz Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.0 module. It’s an instant upgrade to the fastest wireless right on your desktop.
The compact but versatile mPCIe Combo II further future-proofs your build with M.2 (NGFF) connectivity for SSDs. M.2 is a fast and power-efficient standard that aims to replace mPCIe and mSATA, designed to optimize SSD performance. mPCIe Combo II works with your high speed M.2 SSDs and makes the most of their potential, helping you reduce load times to run your OS and games even faster.
