Asus Marine Cool: Concept Motherboard with emergency battery, backup memory and huge cooling
At the Cebit Asus will introduce the possibly most stable and crash safe desktop motherboard: Even during a power blackout or if the memory causes problems, the system is said to keep running. PC Games Hardware got details on the Asus Marine Cool concept motherboard.
The Asus Marine Cool is a concept motherboard - so it won't hit the markets in this form. But as it had been the case with the last Asus concept board, the Asus Pinotnoir, some ideas could make it to the mass production. In our picture gallery you can find detailed information about the Asus Marine Cool.
The most obvious feature of the Marine Cool is the huge cooling solution with metal heatpipes and ceramic plates. Thus the heat is said to be transferred at twice the speed. Furthermore the Asus Marine Cool has a Lithium Polymer battery that is supposed to power the system during blackout. The third feature is the "Failover Memory” feature. This actually is a set of onboard DRAM chips that can bypass compatibility problems of the discrete memory.
Cebit takes place on March 03 to March 08 in Hannover, Germany. PC Games Hardware will be on site of course and provide first hand information.
