Windows 8 Exclusive Features

Fast Boot

Instant OS Login
ASUS has released new hardware and software designs to shorten system boot-up time to 2-seconds* for a smoother user experience that removes annoying delays under Windows 8, and even previous versions of Windows. Faster system boot and restart means Windows starts quicker and higher efficiency - No more waiting around.

Windows 8 Experience
ASUS Boot Setting

Multi-startup Options 
Thanks to ASUS Windows 8 hardware optimization, ASUS Boot Setting provides better flexibility in customizing your PCs startup process. You can enter the BIOS directly with one click through a user-friendly interface, and quickly select your preferred system boot up method: either get to the OS in seconds or opt for regular boot up. Whatever your choice, settings are saved and persistent, with no need to choose every time you power on.

LGA1155 socket for Intel® Third Generation Processors

This motherboard supports the latest Intel® Ivy Bridge processors in the LGA1155 package, with memory and PCI Express controllers integrated to support 2-channel DDR3 memory and 16 PCI Express 3.0 lanes. This provides great graphics performance. Intel® Ivy Bridge processors are among the most powerful and energy efficient CPUs in the world.

H61

The Intel® H61(B3) Express Chipset is the latest single-chipset design to support the new 1155 socket Intel® 3rd/2nd generation processors. It provides improved performance by utilizing serial point-to-point links, allowing increased bandwidth and stability.

PCIe 3.0

The latest PCI Express bus standard delivers improved encoding for twice the performance of current PCIe 2.0. Total bandwidth for a x16 link reaches a maximum of 32GB/s, double the 16GB/s of PCIe 2.0 (in x16 mode). PCIe 3.0 provides users unprecedented data speeds, combined with the convenience and seamless transition offered by complete backward compatibility with PCIe 1.0 and PCIe 2.0 devices.

Dual-Channel DDR3 2200(O.C.)/2133(O.C.)/2000(O.C.)/1866(O.C.)/1600/1333/1066 support

The motherboard supports DDR3 memory that features data transfer rates of 2200(O.C.)/2133(O.C.)/2000(O.C.)/1866(O.C.)/1600/1333/1066 MHz to meet the higher bandwidth requirements of the latest 3D graphics, multimedia, and Internet applications. The dual-channel DDR3 architecture enlarges the bandwidth of your system memory to boost system performance.

GPU Boost

GPU Boost overclocks the integrated GPU in real time for the best graphics performance. User-friendly UI facilitates flexible frequency and voltage adjustments. Its ability to deliver multiple overclocking profiles also provides rapid and stable system-level upgrades.

ASUS Anti-Surge Protection

Protect Your Device Anti-Surge Protection Design detects overvoltage conditions and prevents voltage surges from spreading in real time. It also actively cuts off the overvoltage supply to protect the system. 

1. Real-time over voltage detection.
2. Active protection against potential damage to your motherboards and systems
