P9X79 PRO, Intel X79 Motherboard, ATX, Intel® Socket 2011 for 2nd
Generation Intel® Core i7 Processor Extreme Edition.
At the very top end of
motherboard performance, the P9X79 series from ASUS brings you complete
power, enhanced with unmatched flexibility and boundless tuning
possibilities. These new boards launch with the world's first digital
power controls for both the CPU and memory, thanks to exclusive ASUS New
DIGI+ Power Control Technology. They further put power right in your
hand via UEFI BIOS, the most detailed and accessible BIOS ever, allowing
you to tune your system to its full performance potential. While
user-friendly from the ground-up, the P9X79 Series ships with the latest
features, including exclusive ASUS SSD caching for one-click performance
boosting through the benefits of solid state drive technology. You also
get USB BIOS Flashback for the easiest ever BIOS modification - all it
takes is a USB stick and one button press! Sign up for total power and
performance insight with the new ASUS P9X79 Series.
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
include two digital voltage regulator modules (VRMs). An all-new digital
controller now allows ultra-precise DRAM tuning. EPU provides system
energy saving and real time power management. TPU delivers a second
micro-processor to free CPU resources as well as easy O.C. and an
instant performance boost through an on-board switch or the easy O.C.
