ASUS today launched the M4A89GTD PRO Series motherboard that delivers added core processing power by enabling the instant unlocking of latent AMD CPUs.
Incorporating the latest AMD 890GX chipset with an AMD graphics core, the M4A89GTD PRO Series also supports both ATI CrossFireX and Hybrid CrossFireX technologies.
The M4A89GTD PRO Series natively supports next-generation SATA 6Gb/s throughput from its SB 850 chipset. It also includes two external USB 3.0 ports.
Equipped with an exclusive Core Unlocker feature, the M4A89GTD PRO Series allows users to enjoy an instant performance boost by simply turning on a switch on the motherboard. Doing so activates the latent AMD CPU cores and maximizes processing to triple- or quad-core for extreme performance?especially useful for supporting multitasking or intensive processing. By increasing the processing cores, users can also achieve up to 103% better overclocking performance, Asus claims.
Users can turn up the system performance by using Turbo Key II to auto-tune the system to an extreme yet stable state. To unleash extra processing capabilities, users simply need to turn on the dedicated Turbo Key II switch on the motherboard to activate intelligent optimization.
The M4A89GTD PRO Series includes a GPU Boost tool that instantly overclocks the integrated GPU in real time. Its interface also facilitates flexible frequency and voltage adjustments for more control over graphics optimization. Additionally, GPU Boost has the ability to store and load overclocking profiles.
