UEFI BIOS (EZ Mode)

 

Flexible & 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.


LucidLogix® Virtu

 

Universal Switchable Graphics Technology
LucidLogix® Virtu is designed for the Intel® Sandy Bridge platform's powerful integrated graphics. Its GPU virtualization dynamically assigns tasks to the best available graphics resources based on power, performance and system load on Windows® 7 based PCs. It allows users to fully utilize the unique capabilities of advanced Sandy Bridge multimedia features alongside the high end 3D rendering performance provided by installed graphics cards. When no discrete graphics are needed, the graphics card is put in idle mode to lower utilization, heat, fan speed and power draw down to near zero, making the system more environmentally-friendly. For users with diverse needs, LucidLogix® Virtu GPU virtualization provides great flexibility and efficiency.
Universal Switchable Graphics
LucidLogix® Virtu's GPU virtualization technology assigns tasks to the best available GPU, allowing dynamic graphics switching between integrated graphics and NVIDIA® or AMD graphics cards.
3X Faster Video Conversion
With switchable graphics, all ASUS P8Z68 Series motherboards leverage the transcoding power of Sandy Bridge, allowing users to enjoy three times faster video conversion with Intel® Quick Sync Video technology.

Intel® Smart Response Technology

SSD Speed with HDD Capacity
Intel® Smart Response Technology boosts overall system performance. It uses an installed fast SSD (min 18.6GB available capacity) as a cache for frequently accessed data. Harness the combination of SSD-like performance and response with hard drive capacity, that's 4X faster than a HDD-only system.

DIGI+ VRM

Dual Intelligent Processors 2

Herald the Arrival of a New Digital Power Design Era

  • Faster sensing and response: ASUS DIGI+ VRM acts as a digital controller to perfectly match digital power signal (SVID) requests from the CPU, eliminating digital-to-analog conversion lag.
  • Better cooling: exclusive dual driver and MOS design doubles the heat dissipation area with expanded cooling surfaces for improved thermal performance. Spacing components out over a wider area speeds up cooling to enhance reliability and stability.
  • 2X CPU power supply: the same exclusive dual driver and MOS design also provides twice the CPU power supply with two complete power stages. This results in far greater phase load tolerances, so the CPU never has to wait for power to arrive, increasing performance and overclocking potential.

TPU - The 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.

EPU - 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!

Perfect

Not had a problem at all with this board, overclocked my Intel Core i7 easily with the bios, set up 2 GFX cards in SLI, which I had never tried before, user friendly

Very happy with it

Solid All Rounder

Grabbed this without too much research - happy to discover it's a good, reliable board all round. Very overclocking friendly, and if you're lazy or nervous you can just leave all the settings on auto and pump the multiplier up; though it's a bit more aggressive with voltage than it needs to be when you do this!

Got my i5 to 4.5GHz with an offset voltage of ~0.01, giving about 1.32 vcore unloaded and keeping speedstep working as intended, idling ~32 degrees. V-droops to about 1.26 under full load, but a more aggressive LLC setting might fix that.

Very stable when you're not experimenting with it. Nice big heatsinks on the VRMs. Boots to Windows surprisingly fast. New BIOS enables Ivy Bridge support.

Decent software tools, including in-windows monitoring, overclocking, and BIOS flashing. The last will scare the pants off you because it'll take about 2 minutes to POST afterwards, but normal ops will resume!

Wouldn't hesitate to recommend :)

Quality Board

I built a system using this board, a 2500k and 8 gig of Kingston Hyper X ram. It's been very stable for a month just using the auto overclocking feature, the Efi bios is a breeze to use. The counter staff are extremely knowledgeable, efficient and friendly.
