Four new Intel® X79-based LGA 2011 Socket motherboard series have been launched by ASUS: the P9X79 Series, ROG Rampage IV Extreme, TUF SABERTOOTH X79, and P9X79 WS. All feature Dual Intelligent Processors 3 technology with New DIGI+ Power Control, which includes triple dedicated overclocking and energy management controllers for all-digital power and voltage tuning on both the CPU and DRAM. The design leads to greater precision, better stability, improved reliability and efficiency, plus enhanced overclocking potential for ultimate performance. They all continue the award-winning tradition of ASUS motherboards.
 

Total control, absolute performance
All P9X79 motherboards from ASUS ship with an 8-DIMM memory design supporting up to 64GB of quad-channel DDR3. They also possess exclusive technologies and features that create a perfect platform for flexible and powerful computing:

ASUS SSD Caching: provides solid state drive speeds with traditional hard drive capacities for three times faster performance at a click – no reboot needed!
UEFI BIOS: newly-upgraded with an F12 BIOS snapshot hotkey, F3 system info shortcut, and DRAM SPD (Serial Presence Detect) memory info for faulty DIMM detection and POST troubleshooting.
BT GO 3.0!: Consists of an onboard Bluetooth v3.0 + HS module that offers Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n support, adding instant access point detection and setup for Wi-Fi everywhere.

 

The home of true overclocking
The ROG Rampage IV Extreme comes with several added value and overclocking features PC enthusiasts have been asking for:



X-Socket™: an easy transition to LGA 2011, as CPU coolers and LN2 containers from LGA 1366 boards can be carried over hassle-free.
OC Key™: a device that connects to the DVI port of any graphics card and displays performance info and menus on screen independent of system resources without any extra software needed for monitoring and overclocking on-the-fly.
Subzero Sense™: onboard custom design for subzero cooling systems, able to verify actual system temperatures as low as -193゚C while helping you save on the cost of a digital thermometer.

 

Fearless heat resistance
The new TUF SABERTOOTH X79 ships with an intelligent thermal design, military grade-tested TUF components, and exclusive cooling features for enhanced system stability.


Thermal Armor: smart airflow channeling with dual fans for effective heat removal and shielding of critical board components, which results in an 11% cooler system
Thermal Radar: uses 12 sensors to report temperatures in real time and control fan speeds based on actual heat levels.

 
  Workstation powerhouse
The P9X79 WS brings X79 to workstations in a complete package for professionals. It optimizes multi-GPU performance with 4-Way NVIDIA® SLI™ and AMD CrossFireX™ offering ultimate graphics performance. Online performance is accelerated with the inclusion of dual Intel® hardware LAN controllers, providing small businesses, professionals, and intensive application users the speed and power they need to get the job done.
