Microphone and Router
There are loads of motherboards that form part of the ROG Z270 range, but we've looked at most of them in our recent Kaby Lake round up, and we're bound to review the others in time, so for the moment let's focus on a couple of little things that might find a home on your desk.
Firstly there is the ROG Strix Magnus microphone. With three studio level condenser microphones, environmental noise cancelling and the all important AURA lighting, it is the first ROG microphone and guaranteed to prove popular amongst the streaming community.
Lastly ASUS are taking on the mighty Netgear with the first ROG Router. Triple band WiFi, 8 Gigabit ports, two USB 3.0 ports and built around a 1.8GHz Quad Core CPU. Two of the eight ports are designed to prioritise gaming network traffic above all other things, whilst there is hardware gaming protection allowing you to disable your firewall and antivirus during gaming whilst the GT-AC5300 prevents unwarranted intrusion. You gain valuable CPU cycles during gaming without compromising your security.
