Reign supreme with the latest and finest Intel motherboards that feature support for enhanced memory profiles, overclocking, cooling, and easy installation

KEY POINTS
  • Exclusive new overclocking technology: ASUS Enhanced Memory Profile II enables up to 37.5% higher speeds than baseline DDR5-4800 specs 1
  • Select Z790 motherboards feature ASUS AI Overclocking that boosts CPU clocks for both lightly threaded and all-core workloads with just one click
  • Exclusive new cooling feature: AI Cooling II automatically monitors CPU temperatures and dynamically adjusts fans to optimal speeds
  • ASUS Q-Design takes the pain points out of installing, troubleshooting and upgrading graphics cards, M.2 drives and memory modules

ASUS today announced a comprehensive lineup of Intel® Z790 motherboards across the ROG Maximus, ROG Strix, TUF Gaming, and Prime product families―all built to support the latest 13th Gen Intel Core™ processors. Thanks to exclusive technologies like AEMP II, AI Overclocking and AI Cooling II, plus user-friendly features such as Q-Design, ASUS Z790 motherboards are ideal solutions for users aiming to build a next-gen machine or upgrade their existing system.

AEMP II: Easy memory optimization

When ASUS first launched the previous-gen Z690 models, DDR5 memory modules had only recently hit the market. Many builders looked for assurance that their new memory would work as advertised in their new motherboards—and ASUS went above and beyond to make that happen. It collaborated closely with a wide range of industry partners to offer ASUS Enhanced Memory Profile (AEMP), which ensures better and wider compatibility with popular brands of RAM.

Now that the DDR5 market has matured, and a wide range of memory kits are available at increasingly enticing prices, builders are rightly thinking more about performance than compatibility. Once again, ASUS has gone above and beyond. For every Z790 motherboard that supports DDR5, ASUS is introducing AEMP II profiles that offer up to 37.5% faster RAM speeds than baseline DDR5-4800 specs.  Built through a flexible training method, these profiles make it easy for users to tune their memory above baseline settings while maintaining stable system operation. With AEMP II, optimized memory settings are just a click away―whether one is getting the most out of an entry-level module or priming a high-speed kit for ultimate performance.

AI Overclocking: Easy CPU optimization

ASUS AI Overclocking is powered by exhaustive research and characterization of the performance potential of thousands of actual CPUs in ASUS testing labs. This tool leads the industry for overclocking performance and ease of use. It boosts CPU clocks for both lightly threaded and all-core workloads with just one click. AI Overclocking's sophisticated intelligence also monitors CPU cooler efficiency and changes in a PC's operating environment to tune parameters over time for the best performance with each system's unique set of components. Users will have access to AI Overclocking on all ROG Maximus and ROG Strix Z790 motherboards.

AI Cooling II and FanXpert: Comprehensive thermal solutions

When users first enable ASUS AI Cooling II though FanXpert in the Armate app, it uses a machine learning algorithm to gather data about their system during a brief stress test. From then on, AI Cooling II monitors the CPU and uses the data from its stress test to calculate the lowest fan speed required to effectively cool the system—while minimizing noise levels. This fan control system can reduce system fan noise by up to 5.7 dB under sustained loads. Through this self-adaptive system, users always have cooling power when they need it and quiet operation when they want it. ASUS has also taken the opportunity to update FanXpert with the full set of fan calibration and control options. Users get temperature input mapping and fan response mapping―all inside Windows through the convenient Armoury Crate app.

ASUS Q-Design: User-friendly PC building

The ASUS PCIe® Slot Q-Release button lets users easily release a graphics card from the slot with a simple press of a finger. ASUS first debuted this convenient feature on the highest-end Z690 motherboards, and now it is proud to offer this even on the mainstream TUF Gaming and Prime Z790-A WiFi boards.

Similarly, traditional DIMM slot designs require users to lock in both sides of the memory stick, and it was not always easy for those with larger fingers to unlock the latch closest to the graphics card. That is why ASUS has also implemented its single-sided Q-DIMM latching design on all its Z790 motherboards. With this arrangement, users do not have to worry about a latch that may be too close to a graphics card. A single latch on the easier-to-access side of the DIMM slot is all it takes to hold a memory stick firmly in place. Installing RAM—and upgrading it down the road—is much easier.

ASUS has also simplified the process of installing an M.2 drive. The ASUS M.2 Q-Latch gives users the peace of mind that they will never have to handle another tiny, easily lost M.2 screw ever again. Now they can secure or loosen an M.2 drive with just their fingertips. The M.2 Q-Latch is offered on every ROG Maximus, ROG Strix and TUF Gaming Z790 motherboard—and it is even included on the mainstream Prime Z790-A WiFi.

Images and more details about specifications for the entire lineup of ASUS Z790 motherboards can be found in the Edge Up Buyer's Guide , or visit the ASUS Z790 landing page for first-look videos of each series.

ASUS Z790 motherboards will be available for pre-order starting from 9/27 in the United States and Canada .

Girls Who Code Launches Digital Experience to Change the Future of Women in Gaming

In this culture-shifting campaign, "Girls Who Code Girls" invites users to code the characters they want to see in games

The experience, in partnership with Mojo Supermarket, celebrates Computer Science Education Week.

Visit www.girlswhocodegirls.com

Today, Girls Who Code, a nonprofit working to close the gender gap in tech, launched Girls Who Code Girls a desktop and mobile gaming experience empowering girls to create personalized video game characters with code. Right now, 77% of video game developers are men and only 20% of all characters are women. The platform aims to disrupt this imbalance and challenge a gaming culture marked by misogyny by inspiring users of all backgrounds to envision a gaming experience that's more reflective of themselves and their communities.

Girls Who Code Girls was designed to celebrate the diversity of the Girls Who Code community while teaching computer science fundamentals. The experience provides infinite code-able combinations, from hair texture to skin specificity to body size, and coders will be able to code their avatars with unique and underrepresented attributes. The learnings from the experience will be collected and shared with the intention of impacting the future of female characters in games. The library of characters will also be licensable and offered to gaming companies to inform their game development.

"Though almost half of all gamers are women, we don't see them represented in game development. As a result, what we do see is a gaming experience catered to the white, male gaze that alienates some of its most passionate and diverse fans," said Tarika Barrett , CEO of Girls Who Code. " That's why we created Girls Who Code Girls . By turning users into creators, we're empowering our community to use coding to upend the status quo and imagine a future where they can harness their passion and creativity into a career in tech. We want our students to know that they deserve to take up space in gaming and game development, and can create characters that reflect the best parts of who they are."

Mojo Supermarket – the creative company behind previous Girls Who Code campaigns including the Cannes Lions Award and Clio Award-winning Doja Code – partnered with an interactive production studio, Make Me Pulse, to make Girls Who Code Girls a reality.

"With Girls Who Code Girls, we set out to accomplish two goals. First, provide girls and young women with a fun, creative entry point to trying out code. And second, to draw attention to the fact that if more women coded video game characters they would look more like real women. Our ambition is that with every line of code you type you can influence the future of women in gaming.," said Kate Carter , Group Creative Director, Mojo Supermarket. "We saw how much girls enjoyed DojaCode as an interactive experience, so we wanted to give them another fun one, while showing the world, and gaming companies, why it's so important that we invest in getting more young women into the tech and gaming fields."

HOW DOES GIRLS WHO CODE GIRLS WORK?

  1. Gamers visit GirlsWhoCodeGirls.com, where they can code and customize their own gaming characters.
  2. Users are introduced to four coding languages featured on the site.
  3. As the experience continues, users are guided through the process with clear instructions on what to input and how -- making it easy and seamless for a beginner.
  4. Users watch as their characters change in real-time based on the coding alterations they have written.
  5. As the experience wraps, fans leave Girls Who Code Girls and share the characters they have coded and created.

"As a woman in STEM, I am so excited and humbled to be partnering with Girls who Code on this campaign," said Ainul Md Razib , a software developer & tech influencer based in Singapore (@ainlovescode). " Our global community still has much work to do in boosting women and non-binary people in gaming. That's why I believe Girls Who Code Girls is and will be a crucial piece to expanding the diversity of people in gaming for the long term!"

Girls Who Code Girls was created with generous support from Lyda Hill Philanthropies.

"We are proud to see another innovative way more perspectives are being incorporated into gaming that young people consume in the Girls Who Code Girls experience," Nicole Small , CEO and President of Lyda Hill Philanthropies said. "Closing the gender gap in technology spaces like video game design means a more inclusive and inspiring world for the next generation of young women."

Build a school and catch truant students in this new pixel School-sim

- Pathea today announced the release of its new simulation game, Let's School which will be released in 2023, made by a small team led by producer, Lanka.

In this game, the player will return to their alma mater as the new headmaster. Through great efforts and management skills, the player can restore the now worn-out school building to its former glory and beyond, even becoming a school known all around the world for its excellent education and stellar curriculum.

But the process of building the school is bound to be a painstaking one - in addition to realizing your vision, you will also have to contend with a variety of disorderly students - bullies who harass their peers, 'opportunists' who sneak contraband into the school, students who complain about the lack of recreational facilities and drop out, and many more. For the sake of the students and the future of the school, you as the headmaster will have to take decisive measures to rectify these malpractices.

For example, you can pick up a student who has dozed off in class and punish them with a standing order. For the smugglers, you can start checking for and confiscating prohibited items at the school gate. As for students who blatantly skip school, you may have no choice but to send teachers outside the school to track them down. It's not easy managing teenagers!

Of course, for those headmasters who long for some reminder of their own youth, you'll find it in Let's School: the game offers many customization options. Design your uniforms based on your own experiences, or perhaps your favorite high school anime. Decorate and color the rooms to your heart's desire.

The school may be deserted when you first join, but you can change that by designing the uniforms, repairing the classrooms, recruiting teachers, establishing clubs and more until soon enough, your school is teeming with life. As your school grows, you will then start to experience a rich and beautiful story of youth, slowly watching the adolescent lives of your students unfold.

The developers of Pathea are taking a step outside of the My Time series with the release of My Time at Portia on Steam in 2018, which has gone on to sell over 2.7 million copies and receive a 92% positive feedback rate in the years since.

After nine months of independent development, the producer's demo of Let's School attracted a lot of praise and encouragement from its audience. Support and suggestions from the players have also helped to bring Let's School from idea to reality, and the addition of more team members has helped to enrich the content of Let's School greatly as well.

The project is currently in steady development by a small team and is scheduled to be released on Steam in 2023.
