The core of your powerful workstation
Robust power design
16+1 teamed power stages
Rated for 70 amps and combining high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, these stages deliver power and efficiency tailored for the latest 13th & 12th Gen Intel Core processors.
Digi+ power control
The ASUS Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry and ensures ultra-smooth power delivery to the CPU.
ProCool II power connector
Built to tight specifications to ensure flush contact with PSU power lines. The resulting lower impedance helps to prevent hotspots and connector failure.
Chokes & capacitors
Superior alloy chokes and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperatures, providing a higher level of performance than the industry standard.
Tuning is now faster and smarter than ever before. ASUS AI Overclocking profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration and push the system to its limits. Predicted values can be engaged automatically or used as a launching ground for further experimentation.
Dynamic OC Switcher
Lightly-threaded tasks get fantastic uplift using AMD Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO), but all-core frequencies can be pushed higher via traditional overclocking. The Dynamic OC Switcher lets you have the best of both worlds by engaging the better system for each job based on the CPU current or temperature.Learn more about Dynamic OC Switcher >>
Core Flex empowers you to smash limits farther than ever before by letting you control power and thermals in creative new ways. In its simplest form, you can let your system run unrestricted during lighter loads and set breakpoints to gradually reduce power consumption as temperature increases. But the system is extremely adaptable, supporting multiple user-controlled functions that can manipulate parameters independently so that you can bend CPU performance to your will.
AMD Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) pushes the CPU current and voltage budget to opportunistically increase performance. By aggressively tuning the PBO parameters, AMD’s algorithm can leverage the motherboard’s robust power solution to ramp up performance even higher.
As the first foray of AI Overclocking on an AMD architecture, the set of parameters has changed substantially, but voltage and clock speeds are still the primary targets for adjustment.
Predictive settings in the utility are designed to work in tandem with Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO), but they go one step further by enhancing the values for EDC, TDC, and PPT, as well as tuning the curve optimizer.
Finally, by enabling the Dynamic OC Switcher, AI Overclocking ensures that the CPU is using ideal settings whether in single- or multi-threaded workloads.
By managing the Electrical Design Current (EDC) in tandem with the total current, this CPU can gain extra performance for short, demanding bursts.
During lightly threaded workloads, below 35A, the Level 1 EDC is set to a low value, in this case 60.
As more cores are needed, the EDC is set to 120, which was found by this user to be a sweet spot for performance.
Once the CPU passes 70A, it is in multi-threaded territory, where it was found that a high EDC of 250 gave optimal performance.
In order to let the CPU cool off if its temperatures go too high, this user constrains the Package Power Target (PPT) when thermals increase. Specifically the short-term value (“Fast”) is used.
Until the CPU reaches 70°, it can run at full performance, so 350W is set to give plenty of overhead.
At that point, the power limit reduces to 220W, to let the CPU start reducing heat.
If it is still under sustained load and keeps getting hotter, then a more stringent 165W PPT is set at 85°.
Unleash DDR5 with AEMP II
ASUS Enhanced Memory Profile II is an exclusive firmware feature for PMIC-restricted memory modules. AEMP II is based on a CPU and memory module’s ability to train the memory chips on your kit, and it presents an optimized clock speed that can effortlessly unleash performance.
Built through a flexible training method, AEMP II makes it easy to not only tune the memory above baseline settings but also maintain the stability of system operation, whether getting the most out of an entry-level module or priming a high-speed kit for ultimate performance.
⦁ Results may vary according to the capabilities of your CPU and memory modules.
⦁ The comparison chart is based on a test with an Intel i9-13900K processor and 2x16 GB SK Hynix DDR5-4800 non-ECC UDIMMs, model HMCG78MEBUA081N
⦁ Please ensure all memory modules are from a single validated kit. Do not combine DIMMs from multiple kits—even if they are the same make and model. Mixing and matching DIMMs can result in failure to boot, and compatibility cannot be guaranteed.
⦁ Always install DIMMs with the same CAS latency. For optimal compatibility, we recommend that you install memory modules of the same version or date code (D/C) from the same vendor. Check with your retailer to get the correct memory modules.
ASUS Enhanced Memory Profile (AEMP) is an exclusive firmware feature for PMIC-restricted memory modules. AEMP automatically detects the memory chips on your kit and then presents optimized frequency, timing and voltage profiles that you can effortlessly apply to unleash performance.
