Asus used High Quality Mosfets. Two Philips 5030AL MOSFETs act on the low-side, and a single 7030AL 70A is used as the high-side. These MOSFETs have very low RDS(ON) which means they will have lower temperature as they are switching on and off.

Those Logic Mosfets using Level N-channel enhancement mode Field-Effect Transistor, which result High efficiency due to low switching and conduction losses.
