ASUS really need no introduction but to keep things consistent across our reviews, here goes. ASUS is a worldwide leader and manufacturer of computer motherboards, graphics cards, tablets, laptops, monitors, desktops/ AIO PCs and even peripherals. Their brand represents quality and their ROG division is a favourite among gamers. ROG, which stands for Republic of Gamers use a easily identifiable logo which looks like a pair of eyes and the products follow a red and black colour scheme which fans and general consumers can easily point out and recognize that they are looking at an ASUS product.
Today I will be taking a look at one of their latest ROG motherboards in the form of the Crossblade Ranger. The Crossblade Ranger is the first ROG AMD board designed for the FM2+ socket which uses the A88X chipset. The Crossblade Ranger features all of the thing we have come to know and love from ROG based boards. Compatible with windows 8.1 (IF that’s your type of thing) it also features SupremeFX, Intel Ethernet, LanGuard and KeyBot just to name a few things. It also comes with a nice selection of utilities and applications to help users get the most from their hardware.
