ASUS Republic of Gamers has just announced that the ROG Crosshair VIII Impact is now available in the Philippines. The ROG Crosshair VIII Impact is the company’s compact gaming motherboard that breaks the 6GHz barrier for CPU and memory.

asus-rog-crosshair-viii-impact-1This is the first Impact in the ROG Cross series and it is based on the Mini-DTX form factor while maintaining compatibility with most Mini-ITX cases.

The new motherboard features an array of 8+2 paired TDA21472 power stages, each rated to handle 70 amps. To prevent throttling, it includes a unique actively cooled VRM and chipset-heatsink combo with dual custom Delta Superflo fans.
