It was a bit too big a press release to go in the usual marketing section - I did mention it was Asus' blurb but I've highlighted this fact now

the boards all look very nice nothing compelling for an upgrade if you have a formula vi unless the vi can squeeze more from the 4790k than the vi lets see some Benchmarks soon

On the front of styling, someone needs to stop watching Transformers.

The Impact VII looks great but I'll wait for the review to see what the price is going to be as I think it is going to be over the 150 mark and it will be very hard to justify it against the performance of other Z97 ITX boards. I long to be surprised.

I'd like an even further scaled down version of the GR8 marketed as a "SteamOS streamer" with hardware just fast enough to receive 1080p streaming...

As someone who needs a powerful notebook but not really for gaming, the ROG GX500 gaming notebook could be a serious Apple MBP rival depending on price and build quality. I look forward to seeing more on this.

I hope they lose the red though (I know it is the ROG colour, bit it just looks better in white), the one thing that has always appealed to me about Asus' gaming laptops is that they don't look like gaming laptops.

Some of these actually do have me quite excited. As said, the laptop could potentially be fantastic if the build quality is of that of the MBP, and it's priced right. I can't see it being anything close to cheap with that display! Likewise, the monitor also looks pretty damn awesome to me!

The last Impact was 220 when launched, and took a while to drop below 200. The new one is likely to be the same, which I find slightly bonkers as it requires less materials to make and doesn't add features found in other ATX boards of the same series.

Heh. I just picked up the ASUS Z97i-Plus and couldn't love it more. The Impact I was looking at, but I don't need LN2 nor the higher price tag...
