The world’s first Dual Intelligent Processors from ASUS pioneered twin onboard chips - TPU (TurboV Processing Unit) and EPU (Energy Processing Unit). Third generation Dual Intelligent Processors with New DIGI+ Power Control provides a total CPU, memory and SMART DIGI+ Key profile tuning digital power solution, which includes two digital voltage controllers allowing ultra-precise DRAM tuning in addition to ultra-precise CPU voltage control - a first on the AMD platform. It's upgraded with one-click extreme performance optimization with the user-friendly AI Suite II utility. This evolution of innovative and industry-leading ASUS technology provides super-accurate voltage tuning for better efficiency, stability and performance.
TPU with the All-New SMART DIGI+ Key for a Blazing Performance Boost
Always at the forefront of power design, ASUS propels you into the future standard of power management again by giving you a complete CPU, memory and new SMART DIGI+ Technology with profile tuning digital power solution, which works with the TPU to ramp up performance to its maximum. Enable the all-new SMART DIGI+ Key profile with a single click and adjust CPU ratios manually in the TPU to increase CPU frequency up to an incredible 100%!
Increased CPU and DRAM Overclocking Range
With programmable digital controllers onboard, users can adjust CPU and DRAM voltage and VRM switching frequencies for various overclocking scenarios. New DRAM tuning possibilities make the most of DDR3 memory for better performance with CPU/NB load line calibration and 30% more DRAM current capacity.
The Ultimate Turbo Processor
Unleash your performance with ASUS AI Suite II utility. The TPU chip offers precise voltage control and advanced monitoring through Auto Tuning and TurboV functions. Auto Tuning offers a user friendly way to automatically optimize the system for fast, yet stable clock speeds, while TurboV enables unlimited freedom to adjust CPU frequencies and ratios for optimized performance in diverse situations.

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!
A Dedicated Button to Access the BIOS Directly
Designed for users requiring frequent BIOS access, you can easily enter the BIOS automatically when the PC is on standby power with a press of a button. It saves you time during boot-up from having to repeatedly press the DEL key.
