ASUS Computer Motherboards
If the processor is the brain of your computer, then the motherboard is the rest of the nervous system. Everything connects to your motherboard, from your processor to RAM, graphics cards and storage solutions. It not only provides the interface between all your components; it also determines which components you can install on your computer. ASUS provides motherboards for everything from the devoted gamer to crypto-currency miners.
Intel vs. AMD
The first question to ask when buying a motherboard is whether it is for an Intel or AMD based computer. While both companies make processors that are fully compatible with Windows, they are completely incompatible on the motherboard level. Not only do the electrical connections not match; the processors don't physically fit, either. All your other components can work on any supporting motherboard regardless of processor brand, but not the computer processor, or CPU.
ASUS uses the Republic of Gamers line to market its gaming motherboards. These motherboards are optimised for performance and overclocking to meet the needs of some of the most demanding consumers in the marketplace. These motherboards support the most powerful graphics cards, while offering clean and stable power for those users seeking to push the limits with overclocking.
ASUS TUF motherboards feature thermal armour to protect your computer motherboard no matter what components you install. More power means more heat, but heat is the arch-enemy of all computer components. ASUS TUF motherboards protect components against heat, so they can run all day and all night.
