ASUS 5X Protection II SeriesIndustry-leading 5X Protection II employs the finest components, excellent circuit design, and exacting standards to guarantee quality and long-term durability of your motherboard with all-round protection. For you, that means exceptional protection and stability for your build — the result of decades of engineering experience from the world's leading motherboard brand.
Intel 6th Generation CPU Support (Socket 1151)This motherboard supports 6th-generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3/Pentium and Celeron processors in the LGA1151 package. The latest generation of processors from Intel not only out perform the last in their compute power but also feature award winning integrated graphics for faster gaming, multimedia and web browsing.
Intel Z170 Express ChipsetIntel Z170 Express is a single-chipset design that supports 6th-generation Intel LGA1151 Core i7/i5/i3/Pentium and Celeron processors. Z170 provides a maximum ten USB 3.0 ports, six SATA 6Gbit/s ports, 32Gbit/s M.2 and PCIe 3.0 lane speed support for faster data retrieval. Intel Z170 Express also supports integrated-graphics (iGPU) functions, so you'll enjoy the very latest Intel integrated graphics performance.
Dual-Channel DDR4 3466+(OC) MHz SupportThe motherboard supports up to 32GB DDR4 memory that features data transfer rates of 3466+(OC) MHz to meet the higher bandwidth requirements of the latest 3D graphics, multimedia and Internet applications.
ATXThis motherboard is an ATX motherboard with the dimensions of 30.5cm x 24.4cm. It will fit in any case that supports motherboard sizes of ATX or higher such as a Mid Tower case or larger.
M.2 32Gb/sM.2 supports up to 32Gbit/s data-transfer speeds. It is the perfect choice for an operating system drive, making your whole PC work that much faster. It supports Intel Rapid Storage Technology to ensure even faster access to data, refresh applications automatically and awake from sleep in just seconds!
SATA Express 16Gb/sSATA Express provides up to 16Gbit/s data-transfer speeds resolving the higher bandwidth request in the near future. Current SSDs consume up to 550MB/s, which is close to saturation point for SATA 6Gbit/s connections. Backwardly compatible with up to two SATA drives, SATA Express is the next-generation connectivity standard — and ensures that you and your system won't get left behind.
USB 3.1 10Gb/sCompared to the 5Gb/s provided by traditional USB 3.0, the all-new USB 3.1's 10Gb/s offers twice the transfer bandwidth, so transferring a Blu-ray movie takes less than 30 seconds.
Intel NetworkingIntel GbE LAN features cFosSpeed, a network traffic management application which helps to improve network latency, maintaining low ping times to deliver better responsiveness in a crowded LAN environments.
DVI-D Dual Link SupportThis motherboard supports high definition digital graphics via a Digital Video Interface (DVI-D) adapter. The DVI-D adapter supports a maximum resolution of [email protected]
HDMI SupportThis motherboard supports ultra high definition (4KUHD) digital graphics via a High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) adapter. The HDMI adapter supports a maximum resolution of [email protected]
AMD CrossfireX Multi-GPU SupportAMD CrossFireX is the ultimate multi-GPU performance gaming platform. Enabling game-dominating power, AMD CrossFireX technology enables two or more discrete graphics processors to work together to improve graphics performance.
