Asustek Computer has unveiled the first motherboard under its new TUF series (The Ultimate Force), the Sabertooth 55i.

The Sabertooth 55i is incorporated with Intel's P55 chipset and is equipped with the new CeraM!X heatsink. The heatsink features a ceramics-based composition -- commonly used in the aerospace industry for heat insulation -- that dissipates heat rapidly to achieve cooling effort, while its rough surface functions as an expanded area for heat to induct into the surrounding air, the company said.

The motherboard also includes a fan frame that is compatible with most of the standard 40mm or 50mm computer fans and is positioned directly below the memory module for cooling the related section.

The motherboard's capacitors and VRM MOSFETs have also already been certified for military-level purpose through stringent testing, the company said.
