Fulfilling demand for users that require a motherboard able to achieve high overclocking capability, Asus has unveiled the new ASUS P6T DELUXE motherboard.
The motherboard utilizes Intel's latest platform, and features the exclusive ASUS Super Hybrid Engine concept that encompasses the TurboV and EPU technologies to deliver the twofold benefits of overclocking and power efficiency. TurboV is an overclocking application that enables easy overclocking without the need to exit or reboot the operating system; while the EPU automatically provides users power efficiency.
The P6T DELUXE adopts the usage of TurboV-an advanced overclocking tool that utilizes a micro-controller to provide precise overclocking adjustments, and allow users to adjust the CPU ratio (multiplier) for instant CPU upgrades for real-time performance enhancements. TurboV can also provide adjustments to the NB voltage, NB-PCIe voltage, CPU PLL voltage and DRAM voltage in 0.02V micro-intervals. Furthermore, TurboV is able to do all this without exiting the operating system or rebooting.
In lieu of the current trend towards power efficiency, the P6T DELUXE also utilizes the ASUS EPU technology. This hardware-based feature controls 6 major components: the CPU, VGA card, memory, chipset, hard drives, and the CPU cooler/system fan. Equipped with a database containing all of the Intel CPU profiles, the EPU intelligently identifies and selects the correct CPU profile and calibrates the best possible settings to ensure the best power management.
In terms of the Chipset and Memory, the EPU provides enhanced power efficiency improving thermal capabilities, enhances system stability to provide longer component lifespan and higher overclocking capability. As for VGA cards, the EPU automatically detects system loading and adjusts the VGA card's voltage and frequency - saving up to 37% VGA power during everyday computing. With clever monitoring of the hard disk and fans, power wastage is reduced during periods of idling data access?helping to minimize hard drive and fan noise for quieter acoustics.
The 16+2 phase VRM design present on the P6T DELUXE encompasses 16-phases for the vCore and an added 2-phase for QPI/Memory controller inside the CPU. Another helpful feature comes in the form of OC Palm, which provides real-time overclocking even during gameplay or 3D design applications without the requirement to exiting their currently open programs. Last but not least, the P6T DELUXE will adopt the SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) controller to allow users to utilize SAS hard disks. These hard disks will provide higher data transmission speeds and better data storage reliability in comparison to current SATA interfaces.
