The PCIe Gen3 x4 Ultra M.2 interface pushes data transfer speeds up to 32Gbps. In addition, it's also ready for higher capacities and even faster Type 22110 M.2 NVMe SSDs to fulfill the need for best performance.
Intel® LAN provides the best throughput performance, lower CPU utilization, enhanced stability and is able to deliver ultimate network experience to users!
No one has time for weak WiFi signals and sluggish internet! That's why this motherboard comes with a 802.11ac WiFi (2.4G/5G WiFi) module which supports wireless networks and Bluetooth v4.2.
These ASRock motherboards support Intel® Optane™ memory technology and Intel® Optane™ storage technology to redefine a new standard of high performance and responsiveness.
Compared to traditional chokes, ASRock's premium 50A power chokes effectively make the saturation current up to three times better, thus providing enhanced and improved Vcore voltage to the motherboard.
Dual-Stack MOSFET (DSM) is another innovative MOSFET design by ASRock. The silicon-die area is increased by stacking two dies into one MOSFET. The larger the die area, the lower the Rds(on). Compared to traditional discrete MOSFETs, the DSM with a larger die area provides extreme lower Rds(on) 1.2 mO, so the power supply for the CPU Vcore is more efficient.
A new, mysterious matte-black and copper-color scheme match the prestigious components of ASRock's high-end motherboards.
The High-Density Glass Fabric PCB design reduces the gaps between the PCB layers to protect the motherboard against electrical shorts caused by humidity.
Graphics, graphics and even more graphics! You've demanded more eye candy, so this motherboard supports Triple Monitor. You may choose up to three display interfaces from the rear I/O to connect monitors and use them simultaneously without installing another graphics card.
Complete with all three types of most used connectors! Packed with a DisplayPort + DVI-I + HDMI combo.
Unlike traditional motherboards that use analog power, this motherboard uses a next-generation digital PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation) design, which provides CPU Vcore voltage more efficiently and smoothly, so that the stability and lifespan of the motherboard is greatly enhanced.
A-Tuning is ASRock's multi purpose software suite with a new interface, more new features and improved utilities.
Some sensitive digital components on the motherboard are vulnerable to power surges that can cause your system to malfunction immediately. ASRock Full Spike Protection includes various technologies to prevent your motherboard's components from being damaged by these unexpected voltage spikes.
