Computex: ASUS Display Sabertooth and Gryphon Haswell Z87 TUF Motherboards

/ 6 years ago

ASUS hasn’t launched the Republic of Gamers series motherboards yet for Haswell Z87 so the TUF (The Ultimate Force) series motherboards are the best that they had on display at Computex 2013. The TUF series currently features the Sabertooth ATX Z87 motherboard and the Gryphon Z87 micro-ATX motherboard while ASUS have already hinted that we can expect more models to be added to the TUF series soon.

The main feature of the Z87 TUF series is the new thermal armor design with temperature sensors scattered underneath the thermal armor, ASUS call this Thermal Radar 2. ASUS has tweaked and tuned these motherboards for maximum stability and durability and they have things such as 10K rated black metallic capacitors which provide up to 5 times longer life span compared to rival motherboards.

Interestingly ASUS has also added a reinforced backplate to prevent motherboard flex and this gives a level of structural rigidity to the TUF series motherboards that I have seen on very few motherboards in the past.

These motherboards launched just 4 days ago and are currently available for $259.99 for the Sabertooth and $169.99 for the Gryphon. You can get more details on the ASUS Z87 TUF series here.
