Product Features

  • Flexible and 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • SSD speed with HDD capacity
    Intel smart response technology boosts overall system performance. It uses an installed fast SSD 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.
  • Energy efficiency all around
    Tap into the world's first real-time PC power saving chip through 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!
  • Easy, real-time O.C. tunings
    Feel the adrenaline rush of real-time OC-now a reality with the ASUS TurboV. This easy OC tool allows you to overclock without exiting or rebooting the OS; and its user-friendly interface makes overclock with just a few clicks away. Moreover, the ASUS OC profiles in TurboV provide the best O.C. settings in different scenarios.
  • S/PDIF out connector at the back I/O
    This motherboard provides convenient connectivity to external home theater audio systems via the optical S/PDIF (SONY-PHILIPS Digital Interface) out connecor at the back I/O. The S/PDIF transfers digital audio without converting it to analog format and keeps the best signal quality.
  • 100% all high-quality conductive polymer capacitors
    This motherboard uses all high-quality conductive polymer capacitors for durability, improved lifespan, and enhanced thermal capacity.
  • USB 3.0 support
    Experience ultra-fast data transfer at 4.8 Gbps with USB 3.0 - the connectivity standard. Built to connect easily with components and peripherals, USB 3.0 transfers data 10 times faster and is also backward compatible with USB 2.0 components.
  • True Serial ATA 6 Gb/s support
    The Intel Z68 express chipset natively supports the Serial ATA (SATA) interface, delivering up to 6.0 Gb/s data transfer. ASUS provides extra SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports with enhanced scalability, faster data retrieval, and double the bandwidth of current bus systems.
  • Green ASUS and ErP ready
    The motherboard is European Union's Energy-related Products (ErP) ready, and ErP requires products to meet certain energy efficiency requirements in regards to energy consumptions. This is in line with ASUS vision of creating environment-friendly and energy-efficient products through product design and innovation to reduce carbon footprint of the product and thus mitigate environmental impacts.
