PCIe Gen2 x4 M.2
The PCIe Gen2 x4 interface pushes data transfer
speeds up to 20Gb/s. In addition, it also supports
SATA 3 6Gb/s M.2 modules, and is compatible with
ASRock’s U.2 Kit for installing some U.2 SSDs.
Intel® LAN provides the best throughput performance,
lower CPU utilization, enhanced stability and is able
to deliver ultimate network experience to users!
Dual Band 802.11ac WiFi
No one has time for weak WiFi signals and sluggish
Internet! That’s why this motherboard comes with a
802.11ac WiFi (2.4G / 5G WiFi) module which supports
wireless networks and Bluetooth v4.0.
Super Alloy Motherboard
Premium 60A Power Choke
Compared to traditional chokes, ASRock’s premium 60A
power chokes effectively make the saturation current
up to three times better, thus providing enhanced
and improved Vcore voltage to the motherboard.
Dual-Stack MOSFET (DSM)
Dual-Stack MOSFET (DSM) is another innovative MOSFETs
design by ASRock. The silicon die area is increased
by stacking two dies into one MOSFET. The larger the
die area, the lower Rds(on). Compared to traditional
discrete MOSFET, DSM with larger die area provides
extreme lower Rds(on) 1.2 mΩ, so the power supply
for the CPU Vcore is more efficient.
Sapphire Black PCB
Pure black PCB appearance. The new Sapphire Black PCB
represents rock-solid quality and gives the motherboard
a more mysterious touch.
High Density Glass Fabric PCB
High Density Glass Fabric PCB design that reduces
the gaps between the PCB layers to protect the
motherboard against electrical shorts caused by humidity.
3 Graphics Outputs
Complete with all three types of most used connectors!
Packed with a DisplayPort + DVI-I + HDMI combo.
Unlike traditional motherboards that use analog power,
this motherboard uses a next generation digital
PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation) design, which provides
CPU Vcore voltage more efficiently and smoothly, so
that the stability and lifespan of the motherboard
is greatly enhanced.
ELNA Audio Caps
Who says high quality audio is only available on
high-end motherboards? ASRock applied ELNA audio
capacitors on mainstream and entry-level motherboards!
Compared with traditional solid caps, the leakage
current of ELNA audio caps is merely 3uA. This is
the key to reduce noise level significantly and
satisfy even the pickiest audiophiles.
A-Tuning is ASRock’s multi purpose software suite
with a new interface, more new features and improved
Full Spike Protection
Some sensitive digital components on the motherboard
are vulnerable to power surges, the excessive current
may cause your system to malfunction immediately.
ASRock Full Spike Protection includes various
technologies to prevent your motherboard’s components f
rom being damaged by these unexpected voltage spikes.
Live Update & APP Shop
ASRock Live Update & APP Shop is designed for your
convenience. We provide various apps and support
software for users to download. You can also easily
optimize your system and keep your motherboard up
to date with ASRock Live Update & APP Shop.
