ASUS P8P67 and P8H67 Series motherboards come to India
ASUS today announced a range of motherboards featuring full support for Intel’s ‘Sandy Bridge’ second generation Intel® Core™ processors, all improved through ASUS innovation. The new P8P67 and P8H67 Series motherboards are based on the new Intel® P67 and H67 chipsets. The class leading P67 based motherboards incorporate the future of motherboard technology today with the introduction of DIGI+ VRM. This exclusive ASUS architecture offers revolutionary digital CPU voltage regulation for improved reliability, stability and performance not available with yesterday’s analog technology.
The new motherboards also feature Dual Intelligent Processors 2 technology, which consists of twin embedded co-processors that ensure optimized energy consumption and enhanced performance controls not available in other motherboards. Additional ASUS exclusives include the mouse-controlled EFI BIOS interface, BT GO! Bluetooth management and the AI Suite II application center that is the pinnacle of user functionality and control.
In addition to the P8P67 Series, ASUS has developed a complete array of new motherboards based on the P67 chipset that include the Republic of Gamers (ROG) Maximus IV Extreme and the heavy-duty TUF Series SABERTOOTH P67 motherboard. Truly innovative from the ground up, the new ASUS P67 series of motherboards is the first and only choice for performance, stability and reliability.
“The new ASUS motherboards based on the P67 and H67 chipsets employ several new features like DIGI+VRM, DIP2 , EFI BIOS and BT GO!, to give users increased functionality and performance. We have brought an extensive portfolio of products based on this new platform across various price segments to cater to all users - from casual to high end - so that everyone can fully utilize the benefits of this new platform. We are confident that users looking at migrating to the new P67 and H67 chipsets will find these new motherboards from ASUS best suited for their needs.” commented Mr. Vinay Shetty – Country Head – Component Business, ASUS (India) about the launch of the new motherboards.
Setting a new standard: ASUS Dual Intelligent Processors 2 with DIGI+ VRM
Consisting of the Energy Processing Unit (EPU) and TurboV Processing Unit (TPU), this unique technology delivers a potent combination of streamlined system-wide energy consumption and enhanced PC performance. Second-generation Dual Intelligent Processors 2 technology adds the innovative DIGI+ VRM design to set a new standard in digital power management. DIGI+ VRM replaces analog voltage regulator module (VRM) controllers with a digital programmable microprocessor that fully integrates Intel’s VRD 12 CPU power delivery system to eliminate digital-analog conversion. Since it works at such a fundamental level, DIGI+ VRM improves PC performance from the ground up, improving overclocking capabilities while increasing power efficiency, system stability and reliability.
Putting power control in the user’s hands
DIGI+ VRM includes a user-friendly interface that makes digital power control immediately accessible. Five fine-tuning modes offer increased precision for loadline, CPU current, VRM frequency, power-phase and duty control settings. Enhanced digital controls allow users to make extremely precise adjustments for increased efficiency and overclocking potential. By enabling VRM frequency mode spread spectrum, DIGI+ VRM lowers CPU power and cuts EMI radiation by half for enhanced system stability.
The degree of flexibility and reliability offered by the exclusive DIGI+ VRM design gives users access to a new standard of digital power control and delivery. Combined with the Dual Intelligent Processors 2 architecture, it ensures ASUS P8P67 series motherboards are the ideal platform for the second generation Intel® Core™ processors and P67 chipset.
All-new Intuitive Controls
All P8P67 and P8H67 series motherboards include ASUS exclusive EFI, giving users’ access to a BIOS that features intuitive mouse control and an extremely user friendly graphical interface. Unlike the old text-based interfaces of traditional BIOS versions, EFI BIOS makes it easy to manage a PC’s resources and offers support for future technologies that traditional BIOS’ are unable to provide.
Based on extensive ASUS research and user feedback, the most frequently-accessed functions of the BIOS have been integrated into the EFI BIOS EZ Mode, which enables expedited system supervision, performance settings and even drag-and-drop boot priority management.
Full range of added features
ASUS innovation and forward thinking extend to every aspect of crafting a new motherboard, and so the P8P67 Series includes the exclusive BT GO! Bluetooth manager. This enables fast and easy connectivity with Bluetooth devices and offers users seven functions — folder sync, BT Transfer, personal manager, shoot and send, BT to Net, music player and the unique BT Turbo Remote. The latter is especially unique, as it turns synced Bluetooth devices into a remote control for PC-based media player software. With BT Turbo Remote, users can even reset and shutdown their systems via Bluetooth device without having to be near the PC itself.
AI Suite II, another ASUS exclusive, offers one-stop access to a whole host of system management, monitoring and enhancement utilities, giving users a convenient and logical way of making the most of their PC experience. Users also benefit from the inclusion of super-fast USB 3.0, SATA 6Gb/s and hardware-accelerated Intel® Gigabit LAN, resulting in motherboards that offer the latest technological innovation for a truly spectacular computing experience.
The new ASUS P8P67 and P8H67 motherboards will be distributed nationwide by Rashi Peripherals Pvt. Ltd.
