3X Faster Charging for All Smart Devices
With a dedicated onboard controller, quick-charge all your smart devices such as iProducts, smartphones, tablets and more, all up to 3X faster, even when the PC is powered off, in sleep or hibernation modes.
Faster USB 3.0 Transmission with UASP
It supports UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol), the latest USB 3.0 standard. 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.
Easy. Worry-Free. Failsafe.
The most convenient way ever to update to a new UEFI BIOS version, even without CPU or DRAM in the system. Just plug in a USB flash drive containing the BIOS file,
and press the BIOS Flashback button for 3 seconds with the power supply connected. The UEFI BIOS will then
automatically update without requiring further interaction.
Intuitive and Flexible

Media-renowned UEFI BIOS from ASUS offers the first mouse-controlled graphical BIOS designed with selectable modes.

-Intuitive mouse-controlled graphical interface
-Natively supports hard drives larger than 2.2TB
-F12 BIOS snapshot hotkey and F3 shortcut
-SPD memory timing adjustment and faulty DIMM detection.
3X Faster Performance at a Click
Only ASUS SSD Caching delivers SSD speeds at hard drive capacities with 3X faster performance, one click setup and no rebooting required.
The latest PCI Express bus standard delivers improved encoding for twice the performance of current PCIe 2.0. Total bandwidth for a x16 link reaches a maximum of 32GB/s, double the 16GB/s of PCIe 2.0 (in x16 mode). PCIe 3.0 provides users unprecedented data speeds, combined with the convenience and seamless transition offered by complete backward compatibility with PCIe 1.0 and PCIe 2.0 devices. It's a must-have feature for PC users aiming to improve and optimize graphics performance, as well as have the latest, most future-proof technology.

*This motherboard is ready to support PCIe 3.0 SPEC. Functions will be available when using PCIe 3.0-compliant devices. Please refer to for updated details.

SSD Speed with HDD Capacity
It boosts overall system performance by using an installed fast SSD (min 18.6GB available capacity required) as a cache for frequently accessed data. Key benefits include reduced load and wait times, and lower power consumption through the elimination of unnecessary hard drive spin. This technology combines SSD performance with hard drive capacity, operating up to 6X faster than a hard drive-only system.
Instant Awake your PC from Sleep Mode
Allows your computer to quickly resume from a low-power hibernate state in seconds. Saving your system memory to the designated SSD, it provides your computer a faster wake-up response time, while still keeping the energy use low.
Auto Application Refresh. Less Waiting Time.
Your computer can receive web updates with fresh content for selected applications, even when the system is in sleep mode. This means less time waiting for applications to update and sync with the cloud, leading to a more efficient computing experience.
