ASUS facilitates strategic USB 3.0 accessibility for both the front and rear panel - 6 USB 3.0 ports in total. Experience the Plug and Play connectivity at speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0. The P9X79 PRO affords greater convenience to high speed connectivity.
Digital power control for both CPU and DRAM
ASUS X79 motherboard includes DIGI+ power control with three digital voltage controllers, including DRAM controllers that offers ultra-precise memory tuning in addition to ultra-precise CPU voltage control. This powerful ASUS technology provides excellent control for better efficiency, stability and performance.
Excellent power efficiency and stability
Two critical components work perfectly together to match digital power signal (SVID) requests from the CPU, with ultra-fast sensing and response to efficiently deliver the right level of power on demand. Accurate power reduces wasteful voltage imprecision, and provides more a stable CPU and memory setup.
8 DIMM design - X79 done right
ASUS X79 motherboard is ideal for rendering detailed images or manipulating large files without the bottlenecks of conventional storage. It also allows users to set up big RAM disks and speed up frequently accessed programs, minimizing the impact of storage transfer delays while maximizing user benefit.
3x faster performance at a click
SSD caching from ASUS is easier than ever. At 3x faster, this feature boosts system performance by using an installed SSD with no capacity limitations as a cache for frequently accessed data. Harness a combination of SSD-like performance and response and hard drive capacity with just one click, no rebooting needed and instant activation for complete ease of use, and even prevent data loss with included backup functionality.
ASUS exclusive interface
EZ mode displays frequently-accessed info. Users can choose system performance settings and drag and drop boot priorities. Advanced mode for performance enthusiasts includes detailed DRAM settings via a dedicated memory info page for complete insight.
Easy, worry-free USB BIOS flashback
USB BIOS flashback offers the convenient way to flash the BIOS! It allows overclockers to try more 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.
Customizable speeds with independent fan control
Hardware-level ASUS fan Xpert+ allows users to independently adjust both CPU and case fan speeds with multiple dedicated controllers based on different ambient temperatures, climate conditions and system loads. Built-in profiles offer flexible automatic and manual fan speed controls to achieve a quiet and cool computing environment.
Faster USB 3.0 transmission with UASP
ASUS USB 3.0 Boost technology supports UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol). With USB 3.0 Boost technology, a USB device's transmission speed is significantly increased up to 170%, adding to an already impressive fast USB 3.0 transfer speed. ASUS software automatically accelerates data speeds for compatible USB 3.0 peripherals without the need for any user interaction.
Double USB access, double convenience
ASUS facilitates strategic USB 3.0 accessibility for both the front and rear panel - 6 USB 3.0 ports in total. Experience Plug and Play connectivity at speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0. The P9X79 PRO affords greater convenience to high speed connectivity.
2x faster with fully charged power
Powered eSATA 6 Gb/s combines data and power connectivity. Users enjoy 2x faster transfer rates, and can use external SATA 6 Gb/s devices with no additional power adapters. ASUS provides two extra ports with enhanced scalability, faster data retrieval, and double the bandwidth of current bus systems for extra speed and accessibility.

To get the most out of your audio entertainment across all formats and quality levels, DTS connect combines two enabling technologies. DTS Neo: PC upmixes stereo sources (CDs, MP3s, WMAs, Internet radio) into as many as 7.1 channels of incredible surround sound. Consumers can then connect their PC to a home theater system. DTS interactive is capable of performing multi-channel encoding of DTS bitstreams on personal computers, and sending encoded bitstreams out of a digital audio connection designed to deliver audio to an external decoder.
