Product Description

The world’s first Dual Intelligent Processors from ASUS pioneered twin on-board chips - TPU (TurboV Processing Unit) and EPU (Energy Processing Unit). Third generation Dual Intelligent Processors with New DIGI+ Power Control provides a total CPU, memory and SMART DIGI+ Key profile tuning digital power solution, which includes two digital voltage controllers allowing ultra-precise DRAM tuning in addition to ultra-precise CPU voltage control - a first on the AMD platform. It's upgraded with one-click extreme performance optimization with the user-friendly AI Suite II utility. This evolution of innovative and industry-leading ASUS technology provides super-accurate voltage tuning for better efficiency, stability and performance.

The New DIGI+ Power Control design with two digital voltage controllers upgrades motherboard power delivery to an overall solution on AMD AM3+ motherboards, including all-new DRAM controllers that offers ultra-precise memory tuning in addition to ultra-precise CPU voltage control. This evolution of innovative, industry-leading ASUS technology provides the best in class control for better efficiency, stability and performance<P> Always at the forefront of power design, ASUS propels you into the future standard of power management again by giving you a complete CPU, memory and new SMART DIGI+ Technology with profile tuning digital power solution, which works with the TPU to ramp up performance to its maximum. Enable the all-new SMART DIGI+ Key profile with a single click and adjust CPU ratios manually in the TPU to increase CPU frequency up to an incredible 100%!

With programmable digital controllers onboard, users can adjust CPU and DRAM voltage and VRM switching frequencies for various overclocking scenarios. New DRAM tuning possibilities make the most of DDR3 memory for better performance with CPU/NB load line calibration and 30% more DRAM current capacity. Thanks to a slew of power options teamed with an extensive and intuitive UEFI BIOS, overclocking very large memory setups is no more difficult than mainstream motherboards.

Unleash your performance with ASUS AI Suite II utility. The TPU chip offers precise voltage control and advanced monitoring through Auto Tuning and TurboV functions. Auto Tuning offers a user friendly way to automatically optimize the system for fast, yet stable clock speeds, while TurboV enables unlimited freedom to adjust CPU frequencies and ratios for optimized performance in diverse situations.

Energy Efficiency All Around Tap into the world's first real-time PC power saving chip through AI Suite II utility. Get total system-wide energy optimization by automatically detecting current PC loadings and intelligently moderating power consumption. This also reduces fan noise and extends component longevity!

New ASUS USB 3.0 Boost technology supports UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol), the latest USB 3.0 standard. With USB 3.0 Boost technology, a USB device's transmission speed is significantly increased up to 170%, adding to an already impressive fast USB 3.0 transfer speed. ASUS software automatically accelerates data speeds for compatible USB 3.0 peripherals without the need for any user interaction.

USB BIOS Flashback offers the most convenient way to flash the BIOS ever! It allows overclockers to try new UEFI BIOS versions easily, without even entering their existing BIOS or operating system. It even works without key components such as the CPU and memory installed. Just plug in any USB storage and push the dedicated button for 3 seconds. The UEFI BIOS is automatically flashed using ATX standby power. Worry-free updating for the ultimate convenience!

A Dedicated Button to Access the BIOS Directly Designed for users requiring frequent BIOS access, you can easily enter the BIOS automatically when the PC is on standby power with a press of a button. It saves you time during boot-up from having to repeatedly press the DEL key. Convenience and ease at its best!.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! 11 July 2013
By Fraggle
I picked this up for 104 and it is fantastic.

Firstly, the Asus AI Suite that comes on the installation CD is excellent and words from your desktop like any other application, and automatically overclocked my new AMD FX8350 processor safely to 4.5ghz. No fiddling about in the bios (which you can still do), which is quite daunting for most people. It also allows you to control the speed of the fans from the desktop. When you first install the motherboard, the fans are going like the clappers so they are quite load. Click it onto silent mode and the noise level drops to a much more acceptable level, and you can set the speed of the fans lower if you want to. The built in temperature monitor which you can again access via AI Suite tells me that the temperature of my CPR and case are still in the mid-thirties.

The manual is also really helpful and guides you through installation well.

The only issue I had which left me stratching my head is that my PCI-E cards, such as my graphics card and sound card, were not automatically detected. They were in, and with other systems Windows would detect them and try to install drivers. They also did not show up on Device Manager.

More oddly, my PCI wireless network card was detected and the drivers installed by Windows automatically when I did my clean install of Windows. I didn't need to do anything, it was just there, working from the off.

Anyway, I took a punt and installed the AMD Catalyst drivers anyway from the AMD website, knowing that they would refused to install if there was no AMD card. The drivers installed and the graphics card was there and works brilliantly. I did the same with my sound card and ditto. Very strange.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Motherboard around!!!!! 29 April 2013
By Maurice
Verified Purchase
Offers fantastic performance, future proof with the next set of AMD CPU's! I think it is better than my Sabertooth 990fx as it costs less and performs the same. My sabertooth has been sent back multiple times where this is just solid and is now used in my high performance pc instead of the over priced sabertooths which are the exact same board but in brown and with a fancy name! get this board asus are the best and this board offer value and the best performance on the affordable market!
