A foundation for a high-performance gaming system or workstation. The board is based on a first-class AM3+ chipset, offers not just one, but a pair of PCI Express 2.0 slots with all 16 lines, is ready for high overclocking and provides advanced audio support (DTS Ultra PC II, DTS Connect, ASUS Noise Filter ).
The key feature of a board suitable for overclocking is a precise digital power supply system, which is just what this board features under the name of New DIGI+ Power Control. This innovative technology uses two digital voltage controllers. One controller is used for very accurate CPU powering, the other takes care of DRAM memories.
The standout features of the board are also two well-known chips: TPU (TurboV Processing Unit) and EPU (Energy Processing Unit), used to increase performance and reduce energy consumption. You will also find the Remote GO! feature for easy pairing your PC with your mobile devices (tablets, smartphones) or TV, USB BIOS flashing and many other useful features.
This is a 2.0 revision of the motherboard, which guarantees compatibility with the new Microsoft Windows 8 operating system.
