Does this motherboard have on-board audio?
The on-board SupremeFX audio technology produces near-lossless audio quality with a remarkable signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 115dB, so you can enjoy every little detail. The technology comprises of components including an illuminated red line shielding, EMI cover, 300-ohm headphone amplifier and Japanese-made capacitors.

How have ASUS optimised this motherboard for gaming?
Enjoy unmatched performance and smoother gameplay through features such as AI Suite 3, Pro Clock technology, second-generation ASUS T-Topology and RAMCache. AI Suite 3 allows you to tune almost all parts of your system and, at the a click of a button, you can use ‘five way optimisation’ to ensure your PC is perfect for gaming, entertainment, productivity or just about anything else. PRO Clock technology allows you to extend overclocked base-clock speeds of compatible CPUs by up to 400MHz*. T-Topology lets you overclock DDR4 memory modules, with up to 3400MHz rated RAM supported. RAMCache allows you to allocate some of your RAM as a cache for games and apps so that they launch at breakneck speeds.

*Please note that an unlocked Intel processor is required, sold separately

What other features are there?
To ensure that lag is kept to a minimum, an Intel I219V controller is embedded into this ROG motherboard – alongside a Gigabit Ethernet port and LANGuard. Together, these provide you with a reliable connection that also has surge protection. GameFirst III can be installed, and this software prioritises game related packets and allocates more bandwidth to games, eliminating laggy gameplay, streaming stutters and file-sharing slowdown.
