Digital power design: the new standard
The dual intelligent processors 2 with DIGI+ VRM provides precise Vcore PWM, integrated graphics voltages and frequency module adjustments with minimal power loss through BIOS tuning and an exclusive user interface to increase the board's overclocking range while performance reaches its full potential. ASUS DIGI+ VRM digital power design empowers users with superior flexibility and perfect precision to ensure optimized performance, extreme system stability and greater power efficiency.

Herald the arrival of a digital power design era
VRM or voltage regulator modules are considered among the most essential motherboard design components. They supply the voltage demanded by the CPU, and a good VRM must intelligently detect actual CPU power draw to provide precise power accordingly. ASUS DIGI+ VRM features a digital programmable microprocessor onboard to perfectly match digital power signal (SVID) requests from the CPU, eliminating digital-to-analog conversion lag. The precise power delivery minimizes power transfer loss to provide highest power efficiency, greater performance, and rock solid stability with the most flexible power adjustment than traditional analog power design.

TPU- ultimate turbo processor
Unleash your performance with ASUS' simple onboard switch or 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.

Energy efficiency all around
Tap into the world's first real-time PC power saving chip through a simple onboard switch or AI Suite II utility. Get total system-wide energy optimization by automatically detecting current PC loadings and intelligently moderating power consumption. This also reduces fan noise and extends component longevity!

Auto system level up
Achieve extreme yet stable overclocking results automatically with Auto Tuning! With built-in stability testing, Auto Tuning allows beginners to easily upgrade their CPU performance at no extra cost.

Flexible and easy BIOS interface
Exclusive to ASUS motherboards, its UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) is the first ever mouse-controlled graphical BIOS interface designed with dual selectable modes. It delivers a user-friendly interface that goes beyond traditional keyboard-only BIOS controls to enable more flexible and convenient input with quick scrolling. Users can easily navigate the UEFI BIOS with the smoothness of their operating system. Quick and simple overclocking and setup sharing is facilitated by the F12 hotkey BIOS snapshot feature. The exclusive EZ mode displays frequently-accessed setup info, while the Advanced Mode is for experienced performance enthusiasts that demand far more intricate system control, including detailed DRAM information.

One-stop access to innovative ASUS features
With its user-friendly interface, ASUS AI Suite II consolidates all exclusive ASUS features into one simple-to-use package. It allows users to supervise overclocking, energy management, fan speed, voltage, and sensor readings. This all-in-one software offers diverse and easy to use functions, with no need to switch back and forth between different utilities.

SATA 6 Gb/s support
AMD SB950 southbridge natively supports Serial ATA (SATA) storage interface, this motherboard delivers up to 6.0 Gb/s data transfer rates. Additionally, get enhanced scalability, faster data retrieval, double the bandwidth of current bus systems.

Double USB access, double convenience
ASUS facilitates strategic USB 3.0 accessibility for both the front and rear panel - 4 USB 3.0 ports in total. Experience the Plug and Play connectivity at speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0. The M5A99X EVO affords greater convenience to high speed connectivity.

Supports AMD AM3+/AM3 multi-core processors
M5A99X EVO supports AMD AM3+/AM3 multi-core processors with unique L3 cache and delivers better overclocking capabilities with less power consumption. It features dual-channel DDR3 1866 memory support and accelerates data transfer rate up to 5200 MT/s via HyperTransport 3.0 based system bus. This motherboard also supports AMD CPUs in the 32 nm manufacturing process.

AMD 990X chipset
AMD 990X chipset is designed to support up to 5.2 GT/s HyperTransport 3.0 (HT 3.0) interface speed and dual PCI Express 2.0 x16 graphics. It is optimized with AMD latest AM3+ and multi-core CPUs to provide excellent system performance and overclocking capabilities.

Flexible multi-GPU solutions
M5A99X EVO brings you the multi-GPU choice of either SLI or CrossFireX. The motherboard features the most powerful AMD 990X platform to optimize PCIe allocation in multiple GPU configurations. Expect a gaming style you've never experienced before!

Green ASUS and ErP ready
The motherboard is European Union's Energy-related Products (ErP) ready, and ErP requires products to meet certain energy efficiency requirements in regards to energy consumptions.
