The battlefield is a cacophony, so the clearest audio ups your kills-deaths (K/D) ratio. ROG's awesome audio expertise is the result of extensive R&D, and SupremeFX is the crystal-clear result — onboard audio that you have to hear to believe.

SUPREMEFX 2015
Jacked-up audio, inside and out

ROG provides you with the very best gaming-audio inputs and outputs, with special shielded designs, and a collection of carefully selected professional-grade audio components, including an ESS ES9023P digital-to-analog converter (DAC) with Hyperstream™ technology, ultra-low-jitter clock, Nichicon capacitors, 2Vrms headphone amp, and Sonic SenseAmp that automatically detects and optimizes any headset (32-600 ohms) for purest sound quality. SupremeFX 2015 also features intuitive Sonic Studio II for you to apply and enjoy different audio effects for perfect entertainment, plus Perfect Noise noise-cancellation technology for team conversations with total clarity.

SONIC STUDIO II
Intuitive audio-tuning suite

One-click virtual-surround function emulates 7.1 channels, even through a stereo (2.0-channel) headset. It offers five more superb audio controls, including Reverb, Bass Boost, Equalizer, Voice Clarity and Smart EQ — ensuring that everything you hear sounds just amazing.

Casting Enhancer improves both streaming and recording audio quality, reducing noise artifacts and stabilizing overall voice volume. It also improves all the rich details and boost bass effect of in-game sounds and music playback.

Perfect Voice reduces noise for both incoming and outgoing communications during in-game chat so every teammate is heard and no command is missed.

Greater performance means smoother gameplay — and that means more chance to win. With the best overclocking (OC) design, UEFI BIOS and intuitive OC utility, you'll enjoy unmatched performance — coupled with an exclusive cooling design ensures your system never breaks a sweat.
