A mainstream motherboard with a brand new AMD 970/SB950 chipset. Supports high-clocked RAM modules and parallel connection of two AMD Radeon graphics cards. The board is aimed at computer gamers and people building high-performance PC systems, who are planning to build a new machine with the upcoming high-end octa-core AMD FX series processors.
The motherboard construction uses only capacitors with high dielectric, which provide longer service life and more stable power supply under high temperature compared to conventional electrolytic capacitors. Another interesting feature of this model is its unique OC Genie II function, allowing you to perform automatic overclocking in a single second and promising to increase performance by up to 248%! It also unlocks the hidden cores in the current-gen processors that are backwards compatible with the board.
Owners of smartphones and tablets will also appreciate the unique i-Charger function that enables quick charging of selected USB devices via a USB port. Then there is APS (Active Phase Switching), a smart and handy feature that automatically monitors the processor performance load and regulates the power supply to match it, raising its energy efficiency. Last but not least, there is also 3TB+ Infinity, which breaks the current BIOS limits and allows 64-bit operating systems to boot from a 3 TB HDD.
