GPU Boost

- Unlock integrated graphics performance for up to 30% boost

Exclusive GPU Boost is able to unlock any APU for overclocking integrated graphics. Even non-Black Edition APUs can be boosted – for an integrated graphics performance increase of up to 30%! Gaining this unique power is as simple as flipping an onboard switch or using ASUS AI Suite 3 utility. It easily delivers stable system-wide upgrades for every use.

ASUS 5X Protection

- All-round protection provides the best quality, reliability, and durability

ASUS motherboards guard your PC with 5X Protection. We use quality components like DIGI+ VRM digital power design for precise APU power on demand, ESD units tested to strict standards that eliminate electrostatic interference, and resettable fuses around DRAM slots to prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. We also use corrosion-resistant back I/O shields, all examples of ASUS providing the best possible reliability and durability.

New UEFI BIOS – friendlier and more intuitive

- Exclusive EZ Mode adds useful info to become even easier

Media-renowned UEFI BIOS from ASUS provides the smoothest mouse-controlled graphical BIOS, and now features more intuitive functions to quickly take you to favorite BIOS pages and frequently-accessed settings through custom shortcuts. You can even write quick notes in-BIOS for future reference, view an activity log of setting changes and modifications, and rename SATA ports. EZ Mode has a whole new look, upgraded with extra-friendly capabilities like detailed fan controls, D.O.C.P profile settings, SATA information, and fast clock adjustment. Together, these perfect your BIOS experience.

Fan Xpert 2

- Comprehensive controls for the perfect cool and quiet balance

Seeing an opportunity for more fine-tuned control, hardware-level ASUS Fan Xpert 2 featuring Fan Auto Tuning, providing an tailored fan speed setting for each fan with the exclusive, automatic fan speed detection to achieve the best balance of cooling performance and low noise. It even provides a "RPM Fixed Mode" for users who wish to reduce noise levels to near 0dB with a specific fan speed control.

The Latest Transfer Speed

- PCI Express 3.0

PCI Express 3.0 uses improved encoding that provides twice the performance of PCI Express 2.0. Total bandwidth for an x16 link reaches 32GB/s, delivering unprecedented data speeds combined with the convenience and seamless transition offered by complete backward compatibility.

Complete USB 3.0 integration

- Double USB access, double the convenience

ASUS facilitates USB 3.0 accessibility for both the front and rear panel. Experience the latest plug n play connectivity at speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0. Our motherboards afford greater convenience with high speed connectivity.

SATA 6.0 Gb/s

- Twice the speed

ASUS provides SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports with enhanced scalability, faster data retrieval, and double the bandwidth of SATA 3Gb/s.

MemOK!

- Enhanced memory compatibility: save time on trial and error

Memory issues can be difficult to diagnose and even harder to fix or work around. If RAM problems are preventing your system from booting, MemOK! helps by automatically loading failsafe settings to enable basic functionality with a simple push of a button on the motherboard. This troubleshooting feature saves you time and annoyance, and adds to the confidence of DIY builders.

ASUS Boot Setting

- Multiple startup options

Thanks to ASUS Windows 8 hardware optimization, ASUS Boot Setting provides better flexibility in customizing your PC’s startup process. You can shorten system boot-up time to 2-seconds* for a smoother user experience under Windows 8, and even previous versions of Windows. Also, you can enter the BIOS directly with one click through a user-friendly interface, and quickly select your preferred system boot up method: either get to the OS in seconds or opt for regular boot up. Whatever your choice, settings are saved and persistent, with no need to choose every time you power on.

AI Suite 3

- One-stop access to innovative ASUS features

ASUS AI Suite 3 offers a brand new user experience through a clearer and more attractive interface with support for larger monitors. It consolidates all exclusive ASUS features into one simple-to-use package, allowing you to supervise overclocking, energy consumption, fan speeds, voltages and more. This all-in-one app offers diverse and easy to use functionality, with no need to switch back and forth between different utilities.
