ASUS DIP5 software - Introduction

ASUS Dual Intelligent Processors 5 (DIP5) combines the function of TPU, EPU, DIGI+ Power Control, Fan Xpert, and Turbo App to push the system performance to its optimal potential. It automatically balances the system performance, power saving, levels, and fan settings via the user-friendly AI Suite 3 utility.


I. 5-Way Optimization

The 5-Way Optimization function dynamically optimizes your PC based on real-time usage to provide the best system status. It covers the essential areas such as CPU performance, energy saving, stable digital power, cool and quiet fan control, and includes tailored setting for your apps to ensure your PC is ready for gaming, entertainment, productivity, or any other task.

 * Do not remove the fan during adjustment.


II. Turbo Processing Unit (TPU)

TPU allows you to manually adjust the CPU frequency, CPU cache, core frequencies, DRAM frequency, and related voltages for an enhanced system stability and a performance boost.

Please refer to the CPU documentation before adjusting CPU voltage settings. Setting a high voltage may damage the CPU permanently, and setting a low voltage may lead to an unstable system.

For system stability, the TPU settings are not saved in the BIOS and are not loaded during system bootup. Save your overclocking settings as a TPU profile and manually load this profile after system bootup.


Using TPU

CPU Frequency

* Set the CPU Ratio setting item in BIOS to [Auto] before using the CPU Frequency in TPU.

* The CPU Frequency bars show the status of the CPU cores, which vary with your CPU model.


GPU Boost

 CPU Strap

1. Click or tap or to adjust the CPU Strap’s BCLK frequency

2. Click to load the saved profile

3. Click to save the adjustment into a profile

4. Click to enable the default settings

5. Click to undo the adjustments

6. Click to apply the adjustments


III. Energy Processing Unit (EPU)

EPU is a real-time system power-saving chip that automatically detects the current system loading and intelligently moderates power usage. It offers a total system-wide energy optimization, reduces fan noise, and extends the lifespan of your hardware components.


Using EPU

* When you enable Configured Max CPU Power for advanced energy saving condition, the CPU frequency may display as 800 MHz in the Windows OS information of your computer. However, the true CPU frequency varies from the wattage that you manually set. You can adjust and set the CPU wattage at the lowest base on your preferred default value.

* Configured Max CPU Power may decrease the total power delivery to CPU and affects the CPU performance under system heavy load. To restore your system to its default setting, reboot your computer.


IV. DIGI + Power Control

ASUS DIGI+ Power Control features the revolutionary and innovation digital VRM and DRAM Voltage controllers. These controllers offer ultra-precise memory and voltage tuning for optimal system efficiency, stability and performance.


1. CPU Power Phase Control

Increase the phase number under a heavy system loading to get more transient and better thermal performance. Reduce the phase number under a light system loading to increase the VRM efficiency.

2.  CPU VRM Switching Frequency

Enables spread spectrum to enhance system stability

3. CPU Power Thermal Control

A higher temperature brings a wider CPU power thermal range and extends the overclocking tolerance to enlarge the overclocking potential.

4. CPU Current Capability

CPU Current capability provides a wider total power range for overclocking. A higher value brings a wider total power range and extends the overclocking frequency range simultaneously.

5. CPU Load-line Calibration

It allows you to adjust the voltage range to control the CPU Load-line. Adjust to a high value for system performance or to a low value for power efficiency. 

6. CPU Power Duty Control

CPU Power Duty Control adjusts the current of every VRM phase and the thermal conditions of every phase component.

7. Active Frequency Mode

Active Frequency Mode is used to increase the CPU energy saving state. Click ON to get faster transient response when saving CPU power.


Adjusting the DRAM Power



1. DRAM Voltage Frequency

Allow you to adjust the DRAM switching frequency to stabilize the system or to increase the overclocking range.

2. DRAM Current Capability

DRAM Current Capability provdes a wider total power range while simultaneously extending overclocking frequency range.

3. DRAM Power Phase Control

Select Extreme for full phase mode to increase system performance or select Optimized for ASUS phase tuning profile to increase the DRAM power efficiency.


V. Fan Xpert

ASUS Fan Xpert provides customizable settings of your fans for a cooler and quieter computing environment. With its fan Auto Tuning feature, ASUS Fan Xpert automatically tweaks the settings of CPU and chassis fans to achieve their best cooling performance. ASUS Fan Xpert  also supports hardware level PWM/DC combo mode for the CPU and chassis fans. You can also reduce the CPU fan speed below the default minimum for a noiseless operation during light loads.


Custom fan Settings

4. Click to switch between the CPU and chassis fan screens

5. Click to select different thermal sensor onboard for chassis fan’s speed control

6. Click to undo the changes

7. Click to apply the changes


VI. Turbo App 

Turbo App allows you to customize the system performance, network priority, and audio setting of an application.

When an application is on the Turbo App List, you can allocate the CPU frequency, assign a network priority, and define audio setting of the selected application.

1. Applications List pane

Displays all the running applications on your screen

2. Turbo App List pane

Displays the applications added to the Turbo App List

3. Performance pane
