ASUS launches Intel Thunderbolt 2-Certified Motherboard

27th August 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, August 27, 2013: ASUS today launched Z87-Deluxe/Quad, a motherboard with Thunderbolt 2 technology certified by Intel. Based on the new Intel Z87 chipset and ready for the latest 4th generation Intel Core processors, the ASUS Z87-Deluxe/Quad ATX motherboard has two Thunderbolt 2 ports for connecting up to 12 devices at once. Each port has up to 20Gbit/s transfer rate and is backwardly compatible with Thunderbolt 1.

ASUS Corporate Vice President and General Manager of the Motherboard and Desktop System Business Unit Joe Hsieh, said, “Z87-DELUXE/QUAD has been subjected to tremendous compatibility, BIOS validation, video/audio and other tests to verify its quality and design. Being the world’s first certified motherboard for Thunderbolt 2 technology also means setting the standard for all of the upcoming products, which is something that ASUS has always done.”

The original Thunderbolt standard has four separate transfer channels — two upstream and two downstream — with a maximum transfer rate of 10Gbit/s per channel. Thunderbolt 2 combines these four channels into two 20Gbit/s bi-directional channels, which are 4X faster than USB 3.0. Together with DisplayPort 1.2 support, this enables Thunderbolt 2 to simultaneously deliver extremely high-resolution video to the latest 4K/2K (4096 x 2160) displays and communicate with other bandwidth-hungry devices, such as hard drives. With the onboard HDMI port, ASUS Z87-Deluxe/Quad can drive three 4K UHD displays at once.

Thunderbolt 2 also supports daisy-chained connections with up to six devices on each port. With two Thunderbolt 2 ports, ASUS Z87-Deluxe/Quad can connect to up to 12 devices at once, reducing the need for separate hubs and helping maintain a clutter-free workspace.

ASUS Z87-Deluxe/Quad  is available in the market at Rs. 29,750 (including taxes).
