The ASUS RoG Rampage IV Black Edition motherboard announced at IDF 2013 is a thing of beauty. Why? Because it is black. I think that deep within my dark little gamer’s heart is a little goth dancing with joy at the idea of gaming in black and black and black.

It isn’t actually an entirely black motherboard. Obviously. It’s just that the colour seems to embody the power of the component as much as there are, well, black bits on it. You will find within the folds of all this gorgeous technology that is described on the official RoG site as the ultimate LGA2011 motherboard.

Actually, their introduction is a must read, especially if you think twerking is quite possibly the stupidest thing you’ve ever seen.

The ASUS RoG Rampage IV Black Edition has Ivy Bridge-E optimised design with an all-black colour scheme (and some dashing splashes of red just to keep things interesting), and SupremeFX Formula with WIMA and ELNA capacitors, OpAmp headphone amplifier and 120dB SNR with Sonic Radar software.

There is the 802.11ac Wi-Fi, eight USB 3.0 slots, USB BIOS flashback, Extreme Engine DIGI+ III, 12 SATA with eight at 6Gbps and an entirely revised and optimised layout for superior performance. The 2013 UEFI updates are also included such as Secure Erase and RoG Pulse (you can find out more about these here) and it looks incredible.

A substantial amount of work has gone into making sure that the ASUS RoG Rampage IV Black Edition motherboard delivers something new and powerful to the market. It’s not just a gimmick painted in black, there has been serious engineering thrown into the design to make sure it is optimised for performance. You can find out loads more on the RoG site and I’ll be sure to update you if I find out anything more!
