ASUS Announces New Graphics Performance Enhancement Technology for 915P- and 925X-Based Motherboards


ASUSTeK Computer Inc. (ASUS), announced an exclusive innovation for graphics performance enhancement on its 915P- and 925X-based motherboards.

This latest technology, PEG (PCI Express Graphics) Link Mode, is a unique feature that enables users to boost graphics card performance for superior video quality.

ASUS introduced the P5AD2 Premium and P5GD2 Premium motherboards, which have received unparalleled testing reviews from world-renowned IT media including AnandTech.com. Many competitors marveled at how the two new ASUS motherboards achieved such excellent results. Let's take this opportunity to take a look at several exclusive features that made ASUS the number 1 choice among overclockers over the years.

The CPU, memory and graphics support are the three most important factors in determining system performance. With superior engineering, ASUS motherboards incorporated a wide range of innovations to unleash the true potential of the three main components mentioned above.

The best graphics

Let's begin with PEG Link Mode, which has received a lot of interest recently. This feature, found only on ASUS 915P- and 925X-based motherboards, allows users to raise GPU and VGA memory throughput via the motherboard BIOS the same way system bus and memory bus are tweaked. PEG Link Mode enables powerful video performance on DX8 and DX9 applications. ASUS engineers carefully fine-tuned the parameters for every single PCI-Express card to provide system stability during high-speed graphics operation.

Under PEG Link, there are five settings for this unique function: Auto, Slow, Normal, Fast and Faster. The default setting is Auto, which means the motherboard will automatically adjust for the correct frequency according to system configuration. For advanced users who demand more precise overclocking, they can select the other four settings to achieve the most suitable graphics card performance.

Tap into the real power of CPU and memory

ASUS motherboards offer several innovations to raise the performance of the CPU and memory as well.

Breaking limitation of 915/925

The ASUS P5AD2 Premium and P5GD2 Premium are the most overclockable 915P/925X motherboards. They enable FSB overclocking up to 278MHz while others can't even break the 12% limitation of 224MHz.

Hyper Path 2

It shortens the latency between the CPU and memory, enhancing memory performance by another 2%. It can work simultaneously with PAT (Performance Acceleration Technology) of the Intel 925X chipset.

AI NOS

This intelligent overclocking system detects CPU loading through CPU power consumption, unlike mechanisms on other motherboards that rely on monitoring temperature changes. Based on processor operation, AI NOS raises FSB frequency without delay. It won't be affected by high-performance cooling systems that lower temperature when CPU is actually running at full power.

DDRII 600 Native Support

The P5AD2 Premium & P5GD2 Premium are the only motherboards in the world that can run DDRII 600 while maintaining FSB at 800MHz. No need to overclock the CPU to enjoy high-speed DDRII 600

AI Overclocking

A BIOS option that enables quick overclocking of CPU and memory. It automatically detects and optimizes every relevant parameter to provide both performance and stability.

Cool and Silent Computing

High performance and high temperature go hand in hand. ASUS motherboards provide powerful computing without compromising system stability.

Stack Cool

A patented technology that utilizes a second PCB stacked underneath the motherboard to dissipate heat generated by MOSFETs, chokes, and large capacitors. It effectively reduces component temperature by 10˚C without adding a second fan that often causes noise

Copper power MOS Heatsink

The P5AD2 Premium and P5GD2 Premium use copper (an excellent heat conductor) heatsinks to efficiently absorb heat from power MOSFET, and the result is superior reliability during overclocking
