ASUS Dual Intelligent Processors 4 with Four-Way Optimization ASUS's exclusive Dual Intelligent Processors 4 with Four-Way Optimization integrate features that enhance the ways customers control their PC. The TPU performance-tuning chip, EPU energy consumption manager, DIGI+ Power Control, and Fan Xpert 2 can all be activated with one click to ensure real-time performance optimization, better energy efficiency, precise digital power control, and detailed case fan management for reduced noise and improved cooling. When users are away from the PC, the design intelligently shifts to Away Mode, allowing customers to download and stream content, or backup data, with minimal power draw.
OC Panel The exclusive ROG device features two modes of operation, Normal and Extreme, resulting in superb overclocking and monitoring capabilities. It can be used as an external module, providing on-the-fly voltage, frequencies tuning as well as access to Subzero Sense, VGA Hotwire, Slow Mode, and more. Navigation buttons are intuitive and match the aesthetics of the module. It can also be integrated into the chassis to display important info essential for overclocking, as well as quick access to CPU Level Up and CPU Fan Speed Control.
Extreme Engine Digi+ III The Extreme Engine Digi+ III has been upgraded and equipped with NexFET MOSFET for greater efficiency and durability, 60A BlackWing Choke for lower temps, and Japanese 10K Black Metallic capacitors for longer life. The digital VRM design allows you to achieve ultimate performance with adjustable CPU and memory power management frequencies. Precise adjustments create greater efficiency and stability, increasing lifespan and performance for your system.
mPCIe Combo II The unique mPCIe card attaches to the motherboard near the rear I/O. A dual-band 2.4/5 GHz Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth v4.0 card, bundled into its mini PCI Express 2.0 port on one side, along with the M.2 socket, which supports a SSD add-on, save valuable space on the motherboard. It gives users the best of both worlds: better connectivity and expandability, without the sacrifice of essential features.
ROG SSD Secure Erase Secure Erase is the best removal method: it completely overwrites all data on a SSD, recovering lost performance on systems with inefficient unused/discarded file clearance. Erasing SSD is accomplished in BIOS; no extra in-OS app is required.
ROG RAMDisk ROG RAMDisk utilizes high-speed RAM as a virtual drive to significantly speed up loading times of any game. Faster than an SSD, with no size limitation, and with an intuitive UI, it provides seamless interaction and the best performance while gaming.
