A Sneak Peek at This Summer’s Latest Releases

As the summer of 2024 unfolds, tech enthusiasts and PC builders alike have much to look forward to, thanks to the latest innovations in motherboards and memory modules being showcased at Computex 2024. At KC Computers LTD in Hastings, we are excited to highlight two groundbreaking releases from ASUS and MSI that promise to revolutionize PC building: the ASUS ROG Maximus Hero BTF motherboard and the MSI Z790 PROJECT ZERO PLUS.

ASUS ROG Maximus Hero BTF: A Next-Gen Marvel

ASUS continues to lead the charge in motherboard innovation with its upcoming ROG Maximus Hero BTF, designed to be compatible with next-gen Intel processors, including the much-anticipated Arrow Lake family set to release in the latter half of 2024.

Key Features:

  • BTF Design: The ROG Maximus Hero BTF features a unique Back-To-Front (BTF) design where connectors are hidden on the back side of the board. This thoughtful design keeps cables and wires out of sight, resulting in a cleaner and more aesthetically pleasing build.
  • High-Power Graphics Slot: It includes a high-power slot specifically for BTF graphics cards, such as the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4090 BTF, ensuring optimal performance and compatibility.
  • PCIe Slot Q-Release Slim: ASUS introduces the PCIe Slot Q-Release Slim, a revolutionary feature that simplifies the process of installing and removing graphics cards. Users no longer need to fumble with latches or buttons; instead, they can simply tilt the card to automatically unlock it from the PCIe slot, making upgrades and maintenance a breeze.

MSI Z790 PROJECT ZERO PLUS: Compact and Clean

MSI is set to make waves with its innovative Z790 PROJECT ZERO PLUS motherboard, which aims to redefine the PC building experience by focusing on a more compact and streamlined design.

Key Features:

  • Clean Build Design: Following the PROJECT ZERO initiative, this motherboard moves power and most other connectors to the back, achieving a super clean build. This new orientation helps maintain a sleek and tidy appearance, which is perfect for enthusiasts who prioritize aesthetics.
  • CAMM2 Memory Modules: The Z790 PROJECT ZERO PLUS supports the latest CAMM2 memory modules. These modules are not only thinner but also lie flat against the motherboard, reducing the overall build size. This compact memory form factor enhances connection stability and speeds, resulting in faster performance and lower latencies.

The Future of PC Building

Both ASUS and MSI are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in motherboard design. With the ASUS ROG Maximus Hero BTF, users can enjoy a clutter-free, high-performance experience, while the MSI Z790 PROJECT ZERO PLUS offers a compact, efficient, and visually appealing alternative.
