Dual Intelligent Processors 2 with DIGI+ VRM
The world's first dual intelligent processors from ASUS pioneered the use of two onboard chips - EPU (Energy Processing Unit) and TPU (TurboV Processing Unit). The dual intelligent processors 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.

Comprehensive controls for the perfect cool and quiet balance
For more fine-tuned control, hardware-level ASUS Fan Xpert 2 features Fan Auto Tuning, providing a tailored fan speed setting for each fan with exclusive automatic fan speed detection. This achieves the best balance of cooling performance and low noise. It even provides an RPM Fixed Mode for users who wish to reduce noise levels to near 0dB using a specific fan speed setting.

Exclusive EZ Mode adds useful info to become even easier
Media-renowned UEFI BIOS from ASUS provides the smoothest mouse-controlled graphical BIOS, and now features more intuitive functions to quickly take you to favorite BIOS pages and frequently-accessed settings through custom shortcuts. You can even write quick notes in-BIOS for future reference, view an activity log of setting changes and modifications, and rename SATA ports. EZ Mode has a whole new look, upgraded with extra-friendly capabilities like detailed fan controls, XMP profile settings, SATA information, and fast clock adjustment. Together, these perfect your BIOS experience.

170% faster transfer speeds than traditional USB 3.0
ASUS USB 3.0 Boost technology supports UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol) USB 3.0. With USB 3.0 Boost technology, a USB device's transmission speed is significantly increased up to 170%, adding to already fast USB 3.0 performance. ASUS software automatically accelerates data rates for compatible USB 3.0 peripherals without any user interaction.

One-stop access to innovative ASUS features
ASUS AI Suite 3 offers a brand new user experience through a clearer and more attractive interface with support for larger monitors. It consolidates all exclusive ASUS features into one simple-to-use package, allowing you to supervise overclocking, energy consumption, fan speeds, voltages and more. This all-in-one app offers diverse and easy to use functionality, with no need to switch back and forth between different utilities. Quad-GPU CrossFireX Support Brings you multi-GPU support using AMD CrossFireX. The Z87 chipset optimizes PCI Express allocation in multiple graphics card configurations, so you can expect brand-new gaming like you've never experienced before!

Dedicated direct BIOS access button
Designed for those requiring frequent BIOS access, users can easily enter the BIOS when the PC is on standby power with a simple press of a button. It saves you time during boot-up as you don't have to repeatedly press the DEL key. Convenience and ease at their best!

Precise power control and long-lasting stability
Voltage regulator modules (VRMs) are among the most essential motherboard components. A good VRM intelligently delivers CPU power based on actual needs at any given time. ASUS was first with digital power design featuring faster sensing and response to deliver precise CPU power on demand. This great accuracy reduces energy waste and of course improves system stability thanks to more consistent delivery.

Discover future visual experiences
Following up on popular 1080p full HD, 4K Ultra HD is the next big thing, and you're ready for the upgrade thanks to integrated graphics that natively support up to 4096 x 2160 via HDMI or DisplayPort. That's four times the pixel count of 1080p (1920 x 1080), offering incredible visual clarity, detail, and realism.

Intel Z87 Express Chipset
The Intel Z87 Express Chipset is a single-chipset design that supports socket LGA1150 4th generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3/Pentium /Celeron processors. It provides improved performance by utilizing serial point-to-point links, allowing increased bandwidth and stability. Additionally, Z87 provides a maximum 6 USB 3.0 ports and 6 SATA 6 Gb/s ports for faster data retrieval. Moreover, the Intel Z87 Express Chipset also supports iGPU functions, letting users enjoy the latest Intel integrated graphics performance.
