    Elevata capacità di controllo e performance eccezionali su piattaforma Intel X79

    Architettura Dual Intelligent Processors con nuova tecnologia DIGI+ Power Contro
    La terza generazione ASUS di architettura Dual Intelligent Processors con il nuovo controllo DIGI+ Power Control include tre tipi di controller digitali del voltaggio, che rendono possibilie una regolazione finissima dei microvoltaggi di DRAM e della CPU. Questa evoluzione dell'architettura in uso permette di migliorare ulteriormente l’efficienza e la durata nel tempo dell’hardware.

    Nuovo Controllo DIGI+

    Nuova tecnologia Digital Power Control per CPU e DRAM
    La serie P9X79 include la nuova tecnologia DIGI+ VRM Digital Power Control sviluppata da ASUS per il circuito di alimentazione delle schede madri, volta a migliorare ulteriormente l’efficienza e la durata nel tempo dell’hardware e la resa della memoria di sistema.

    Efficienza e stabilità da primato
    Il sistema digitale di erogazione della potenza in base alle richieste della CPU regolato dai limiti digital power signal (SVID) garantisce la mancanza totale di imprecisioni nel voltaggio e mantiene stabile le prestazioni di CPU e memoria.

    CPU e DRAM con spettro di overclock ampliato
    Le nuove opzioni per la regolazione del voltaggio della memoria permettono agli utenti di trarre il massimo della velocità dalla memoria DDR3, con un miglioramento delle prestazioni grazie alla regolazione della linea di carico VCCSA. In questo modo, le normali prestazioni della DRAM aumentano di circa il 30%, facilitando più che mai l’overclocking della memoria.

    * VCCSA (system agent voltage) relates to the CPU DRAM controller. ASUS power control now provides more VCCSA options to facilitate extreme DRAM overclocking.

    8 DIMM Design - X79 Done Right
    Support for up to 64GB of system memory with an 8-DIMM design on ASUS X79 motherboards provides the capacity for users to make full use of modern 64-bit software, ideal for rendering detailed images or manipulating large files without the bottlenecks of conventional storage. It also allows users to set up big RAM disks and speed up frequently accessed programs, minimizing the impact of storage transfer delays while maximizing user benefit.

    ASUS Exclusive Features


    ASUS UEFI BIOS offers the first mouse-controlled graphical BIOS designed with selectable modes, providing a user-friendly interface that goes beyond traditional keyboard-only controls. It also natively supports fully-utilized hard drives larger than 2.2TB in 64-bit operating systems.

    ASUS exclusive interface
    EZ Mode displays frequently-accessed info. Users can choose system performance settings and drag and drop boot priorities. Advanced Mode for performance enthusiasts includes detailed DRAM settings via a dedicated memory info page for complete insight.

    New upgrade! Quick and easy info for enhanced system control

    • F12 BIOS snapshot hotkey for sharing UEFI setup info and troubleshooting
    • New F3 Shortcut for most accessed info
    • ASUS DRAM SPD (Serial Presence Detect) Information for accessing memory info, detecting faulty DIMMs and helping with difficult POST situations

    USB BIOS Flashback

    Easy, worry-free USB BIOS Flashback
    USB BIOS Flashback offers the most convenient way to flash the BIOS ever! It allows overclockers to try new UEFI BIOS versions easily, without even entering their existing BIOS or operating system. It even works without key components such as the CPU and memory installed. Just plug in any USB storage and push the dedicated button for 3 seconds. The UEFI BIOS is automatically flashed using ATX standby power. Worry-free updating for the ultimate convenience!
