This motherboard supports AMD AM3 multi-core processors with unique L3 cache and delivers better overclocking capabilities with less power consumption. It features dual-channel DDR3 1333 memory support and accelerates data transfer rate up to 5200MT/s via HyperTransport 3.0 based system bus. This motherboard also supports AMD CPUs in the 45nm manufacturing process.NVIDIA nForce 980a SLI media and communications processors (MCPs) power the most feature rich, high performance motherboards for AMD AM3 CPUs. As a premier enthusiast platform, nForce 980a features SLI technology for maximum graphics performance and are specifically designed to harness the power of GeForce GPUs for gaming and beyond.NVIDIA SLI (Scalable Link Interface) makes use of the PCI Express 2.0 bus architecture's increased bandwidth and features intelligent hardware and software that allows two GPUs to efficiently work together to deliver earth-shattering, scalable performance. For some applications, this translates into nearly double the performance!This motherboard supports the latest PCIe 2.0 devices for double speed and bandwidth which enhances system performance.
HyperTransport 3.0 technology provides 2.6 times more bandwidth than HyperTransport 1.0, radically improving system efficiency to create a smoother, faster computing environment.This motherboard supports DDR3 2000(O.C.) that provides faster data transfer rate and more bandwidth to increase memory computing efficiency, enhancing system performance in 3D graphics and other memory demanding applications.Hybrid SLI technology is a unique hybrid multi-GPU technology. It turbo-charges performance of discrete graphics cards when combined with the motherboard GPUs.To fully unleash the latest generation AM3 CPU's potential, the ASUS M4 Series motherboards have adopted an 8-phase VRM power design. It delivers high power efficiency and supreme overclocking ability. Furthermore, high quality power components can effectively lower system temperature to ensure longer component lifespan. This series also features an extra 1 phase power dedicated to integrated memory/HT controller to provide independent power to vital components.
This motherboard uses all long-life capacitors onboard for durability, improved lifespan, and enhanced thermal capacity.The ASUS EPU (Energy Processing Unit) provides total system power management by detecting current PC loadings and intelligently moderating power in real-time. It automatically provides the most appropriate power usage for the CPU, VGA card, hard drives, and CPU/chassis fans- helping save power and money!ASUS Core Unlocker simplifies the activation of a latent AMD CPU - with just a simple switch or hot key. Enjoy an instant performance boost by simply unlocking the extra cores, without performing complicated BIOS changes.MemOK! quickly ensures memory boot compatibility. This remarkable memory rescue tool requires a mere push of a button to patch memory issues. MemOK! determines failsafe settings and dramatically improves your system boot success.
