PostSubject: ASUS ROG Crosshair V Formula, SABERTOOTH 990FX and M5A99/97 motherboards   Wed Aug 17, 2011 2:18 pm

ASUS has brought motherboards to Computex as well as tablets and notebooks,
with several new AMD 9 Series models offering things like AMD
CrossFireX, NVIDIA SLI and Intel ThunderBolt connectivity depending on
‘board. The ASUS M5A99/97 Series, the TUF SABERTOOTH 990FX and the ROG
Crosshair V Formula all support 990FX/990X/970 chipsets and AM3+ CPUs,
with the Republic of Gamers ‘board having a ThunderBolt audio/LAN combo
expansion card.

It also offers both NVIDIA and AMD’s multi-card graphics support, onboard SupremeFX X-Fi 2 audio, Bigfoot Networks Killer E2100 networking
with game traffic prioritizing and the option of 4-way NVIDIA SLI with a
ROG XPANDER add-on board. There’s the usual overclocking support too,
along with USB 3.0 connectivity and more.

The ASUS M5A99/97 Series, meanwhile, uses DIGI+ VRM to allow owners
to tinker individual power settings, including DRAM power control, with
the ASUS UEFI BIOS for GUI based overclocking. Finally, the
ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX uses CeraM!X, a nifty cooling material that not
only looks good but helps reduce heat more efficiently, just like on the

That’s paired with ten heat sensors embedded in the ‘board itself –
ASUS calls it “Thermal Radar” – which can be used for fan speed
fine-tuning. No word on pricing or availability at this stage.

Press Release:

ASUS Launches New AMD 9 Series Motherboards offering Superior Performance, Reliability and Features

– New AM3+ based motherboards offer a class leading DIGI+ VRM digital
power design and innovative UEFI BIOS that is a first for the AMD
platform –
Fremont, California (May 30th, 2011) ― Continuing its leadership in innovation, design and performance,
ASUS the number #1 and most awarded motherboard brand is excited to
announce a new lineup of innovative AMD based motherboards that support
the 990FX/990X/970 chipsets and AM3+ CPUs. The models available are the
M5A99/97 Series, the TUF SABERTOOTH 990FX and the ROG Crosshair V
Formula. Featured models offer ASUS’s award winning UEFI BIOS and the
second generation of Dual Intelligent Processors (DIP2), comprised of
the award winning TurboV Processor Unit (TPU) and Energy Processor Unit
(EPU) for superior performance and energy management. The new
motherboards will be the first on the AMD chipset based platform to
support DIGI+ VRM (Digital power design) and both multi-GPU
technologies, AMD’s CrossFireX™ and NVIDIA’s® SLI™.

ASUS M5A99/97 Series feature Dual Intelligent Processor 2 with DIGI+ VRM
The ASUS M5A99/97 Series motherboards offer unsurpassed compatibility
with new AMD AM3+ socket CPUs, while also being backwards compatible
with the previous generation AM3 processors. The M5A99/97 core series is
equipped with DIP2, which features DIGI+ VRM technology in addition to
the TPU and EPU processors that offer enhanced performance and power
management. DIGI+ VRM power delivery allows a user to precisely adjust
and control power settings digitally for precise power control and
flexible tuning of their system.

Unlike older analog designs, DIGI+ VRM is perfectly suited for the
AM3+ CPU specification’s new power demand requirements that benefit from
precise power flow adjustment, enhanced power efficiency
and extra DRAM power control for stability. Also included on the
M5A99/97 Series motherboards is the intuitive and feature laden ASUS
UEFI BIOS menu interface. UEFI BIOS allows a user to control and adjust
their motherboard settings through the use of a mouse-enabled interface
for a superior user-friendly experience that BIOS and Hybrid-EFI
solutions do not offer.

SABERTOOTH 990FX has CeraM!X aerospace-grade cooling technology
The newest addition to the TUF Series motherboards is the SABERTOOTH
990FX. Known for their unrivaled quality and reliability in extreme
conditions, the SABERTOOTH 990FX features the use of CeraM!X, an
exclusive aerospace-grade cooling material that is extremely effective
in conducting heat away from vital system components. Also onboard is
ASUS’ Thermal Radar technology that consists of ten sensors located on
vital motherboard components, which provides users the ability to
actively monitor each one individually and automatically adjust fan
speeds to ensure a high level of system stability without overheating.

The SABERTOOTH 990FX features TUF components, which are comprised of
military-certified alloy chokes, solid state capacitors and MOSFETs
built to withstand the most extreme usage conditions possible for
greater system stability and longevity. A TUF motherboard built with high-end
components ensures quality and tested server-grade reliability and are
certified TUF only after a series of extreme stress tests including
maximum temperature and humidity tolerance, so users are ensured of
owning the best and most reliable motherboard on the market.

ROG Crosshair V Formula redefines AMD Performance
The Crosshair V Formula with AMD 990FX chipset-based is not only the
first ROG motherboard with AM3+ CPU support, but it is also the first
AMD motherboard to support both 3-Way NVDIA® SLI™ and AMD CrossFireX™ as
well as offering an advanced UEFI BIOS and DIGI+ VRM design not
available on competing solutions. A wide array of advanced ROG
overclocking tools are on hand too, while onboard SupremeFX X-Fi 2
delivers the most intense and immersive gaming audio experience. Better
still, high-performance
Intel® Ethernet with GameFirst technology creates a LAN connection that
is fast enough to keep up with the pace of modern multiplayer gaming
over an internet connection that is also used being used for other
online tasks.

To really make it the ultimate gaming motherboard, the Crosshair V
Formula/ThunderBolt also comes with the ThunderBolt audio/LAN combo
expansion card. The class-leading XONAR™ audio technology provides
dramatically better sound quality than any standard audio card, while
its built-in headphone amplifier with adjustable impedance settings
makes it perfect for competitive gaming or enjoying the latest media
titles. The Crosshair V Formula/Thunderbolt* also incorporates the
award-winning Bigfoot Networks™ Killer™ E2100 networking platform with
exclusive Advanced Stream Detect™ technology that automatically
classifies and prioritizes traffic for online games, HD
video and audio streams for optimum performance, even when performing
these tasks simultaneously. ASUS’ innovative design and performance
trend continues as the Crosshair V Formula features advanced support for
4-way NVIDIA SLI via the use of the exclusive ROG XPANDER add-on board.
