ASUS Rate Your Gear: Leveraging real-world user experiences to drive our product development

ASUS thrives on user feedback, and is passionate about leveraging these real-world experiences to help us to both shape and improve our products. We also hope that the insight offered by users of ASUS products will help guide other consumers in their own appraisal processes and purchasing decisions. That’s why we have created the ASUS Rate Your Gear campaign. The promotion runs from May 22 2020, until August 31, 2020 inclusive, and is open to participants around the world. To enter and stand a chance to win a prize, participants must write an original review of an eligible ASUS product and post it on one or more eligible platforms. There are numerous eligible platforms, including social-media services such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, as well as forums and other online platforms – such as online retailers. The serial number for an eligible product can be used only once, for a single review on a single eligible platform. Eligible products include the brand-new range of ASUS Z490 motherboards, plus a variety of ASUS and ASUS ROG-branded graphics cards, monitors, routers and peripherals. Details of the campaign, including the full lists of eligible products and platforms, can be found on the dedicated ASUS Rate Your Gear microsite – at ASUS Rate Your Gear Global Campaign

ASUS Z490 motherboards: Powered by AI technology, and ready for Rate Your Gear

The launch of the ASUS Rate Your Gear coincides with the availability of the all-new ASUS Z490 motherboards – and these refreshed models are eligible for reviews submitted during the campaign.

Engineered to support the latest 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors, the next-generation ASUS motherboards pack loads of cutting-edge AI technologies, including AI Overclocking and AI Cooling, plus AI Networking with ROG GameFirst VI technology.

ASUS AI Overclocking utilizes a proprietary algorithm to predict optimal clock speed and voltage settings for the motherboard, helping users push their CPU to the limits with a click of a button. ASUS AI Cooling automatically manages and control motherboard-connected fans to ensure optimal settings based on current system load and temperature. Last but not least, AI Networking with GameFirst VI employs AI technology to optimize network settings for smooth online gameplay. Specifically, and new to the ASUS Z490 generation, GameFirst VI features AI-enhanced identification and boost technology to ensure faster and smarter network optimization.
