These new motherboards not only look the part, but they play the part too, with Wifi 7 support, AI overclocking, cooling, and redesigned Q-LED error reporting to make troubleshooting easier. Not only that, but all motherboards come with a re-designed ASUS Q Wifi antenna.

This is also the first time that a more affordable ASUS TUF motherboard has shipped with AI features built in.

ASUS also introduced the ASUS ROG Rapture GT-BE98.

Corsair

Not only has ASUS been innovating, but Corsair has been pushing boundaries of its own during Gamescom 2023 by releasing something we didn’t really see coming, although, in hindsight, the TC100 gaming chair was a bit of a giveaway.

Corsair introduced the Corsair Platform:6 during Gamescom 2023, a stylish, fully modular desk that allows for dual monitor setups. However, no Flex’s unfortunately.

The desk is designed to come in either static or adjustable configurations that allow for electrical operation. Its modular design means you can accessorize as you please, and it comes in a gorgeous wood finish. You’d be the envy of everybody with this desk in your gaming room.

The Platform:6 will be available to purchase around Q4 this year if all goes well.


Philips

Philips has been busy too, manufacturing one of the meanest-looking monitors we have seen from them in a long time. The Philips Evnia 49M2C8900 is on its way. A new 49″ SuperWide QD-OLED display.
