    Along with built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 for super-fast and flexible wireless connectivity, X79-Deluxe also includesASUS SSD Caching II technology to significantly improve the performance of traditional hard disk drives (HDDs).X79-Deluxealso introduces a stunning gold-and-black design — so it looks just as great as it performs.

    Overclock Ivy Bridge-E with confidence

    ASUSX79-Deluxeis designed to unleash the full power ofFuture Intel Core i7-49xx/48xx processors and includes numerous exclusive ASUS technologies to allow users to overclock with confidence.Dual Intelligent Processors 4 with 4-Way Optimization is an easy-to-use tuning tool that dynamically adjusts ASUS TPU (TurboV Processing Unit), EPU (Energy Processing Unit), Digi+ Power Control and Fan Xpert 2 technologies to reduce noise and increaseefficiency with a single click. With X79-Deluxe and Dual Intelligent Processors 4 with 4-Way Optimization, a 3.4GHz processor’s clock speed can be easily and reliably cranked to over 4.8GHz — truly incredible performance.


    Exceptional DRAM-overclocking performance is also achieved swiftly and simply. X79-Deluxe is able to overclock up to eight DIMMs to speeds that represent a 30% improvement on previous ASUS X79 motherboards , allowing users to set up very large RAM disks to benefit from super-fast access to favorite applications and everyday storage operations.

    Super-fast Wi-Fi and advanced SSD caching

    ASUSX79-Deluxeis fitted with an upgraded ASUS Wi-Fi GO! module that provides both 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 for extremely fast, stable and flexible wireless connectivity. With 802.11ac Wi-Fi built in, X79-Deluxedelivers wireless speeds of up to 867Mbit/s — that’s up to three times faster than the 802.11n standard. A bundled dual-band (2.4GHz/5GHz), two-stream (2T2R) antenna ensures wide coverage, so a wireless network can be extended quickly and easily.
