ASUS was founded in 1989. Its ancestors were brilliant engineers who were able to design the first motherboard without access to the processor. For several years, ASUS was a dynamically developing company - new products appeared, production volumes grew, the staff increased proportionally. Many technologies were developed, many of which later became the de facto standard in the IT industry. Quite soon, under the leadership of the charismatic leader of the company, Joni Shea, who is its president to this day, ASUS, thanks to a creative approach to market problems, has become a world leader in the quality and quantity of boards manufactured. It is worth noting that the foundation of any system is primarily high-quality motherboards, therefore,

In 1997, the first laptop appeared under the company’s brand - after which ASUS made a special emphasis on a new category of consumer devices and brought to the market many models in all price segments. It is also curious that ASUS laptops, for example, were the first to go into space and work without fail at Mir station. Further, in accordance with the needs of the market, the company successfully introduced smartphones and tablets of the Zen line, and today it is actively developing gadgets of the Internet of Things segment and is aimed at robotics.

Since its founding, ASUS has always paid particular attention to gaming products. The desire of engineers to create powerful uncompromising solutions for enthusiasts and fans of computer games led to the founding of the branded sub-brand ASUS Republic of Gamers in 2006. The rapid development of the gaming market contributed to the formation of the ROG brand, whose products became an example for many manufacturers to follow. ROG is more than just innovative and ultra-reliable devices, this brand today takes an active part in the global gaming community, helping to develop the gaming industry by organizing e-sports events around the world. The Republic of Gamers brand has become a leader in the segment of the best devices for computer games and extreme overclocking, having won many awards and positive reviews from specialized media around the world.

ROG brand mission

Today, the Republic of Gamers line includes computer hardware - motherboards, video cards, sound cards, game monitors, high-performance laptops, desktops, as well as gaming peripherals - keyboards, mice, headsets. ASUS ROG products provide unrivaled performance for the most demanding users. All this made it possible to create a whole army of fans around the brand around the world.

⇡#ROG brand evolution
The Republic of Gamers brand was created in 2006, and since then, when creating products, ASUS engineers began to work closely with leading world gamers and overclockers, making very non-standard at first glance decisions. There is a fundamental rule in the industry: in order to bring to the market a successful line of new products, designers and engineers must have a complete picture of their customers.

At the end of 2004, the motherboard ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe, which in fact was the prototype for future ROG products, was released. It was the first motherboard to support the installation of two video cards working in a bunch of NVIDIA SLI. This solution, when using two relatively inexpensive models of the GeForce 6600 GT, exceeded in terms of speed in games and the top-end GeForce 6800 Ultra graphics card at that time.

In addition, the high overclocking potential of the ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe made this motherboard the best choice for overclockers and enthusiasts for the current generation of processors, which was confirmed by numerous records in gaming tests and benchmarks.

But the team of engineers did not stop there - they sought to achieve record performance and overclocking indicators, such as no one else has ever achieved. They dreamed of creating a community of PC gamers, computer enthusiasts and overclockers. But what should they call themselves? Extreme teams? Too common. Extreme gaming? Too easy. G Group? Not breathtakingly cool. After lengthy discussions, the interim name Project G was approved, and soon the motherboard of this series, code-named Pluto, was developed.

This board supported exclusive technologies for overclocking the system: for example, in the first tests with the help of ASUS Crosshair we were able to overclock the AMD Athlon FX-62 processor from the standard 2800 MHz to 3658.3 MHz. This achievement has contributed to the international recognition of the Republic of Gamers brand and the emergence of the slogan “Champions Choice”.
