ASUS is the world’s largest motherboard manufacturer and is one that the gaming and general computing enthusiasts are certainly familiar with. ASUS is well known for its motherboards, but it manufacturers a number of other items; small electronics, video cards, and many others. Still it is most recognizable for its motherboard brands. To differentiate its gaming line from its regular board brand ASUS created the “Republic of Gamers” (ROG) brand. Generally these boards have more features and nicer packaging than ASUS’ more contemporary motherboards.
