ASUS Intros P5Q PRO Turbo and P5Q Turbo Motherboards with Xtreme Phase Power Design





Xtreme Phase Power Design for Peak Power Efficiency
The ASUS Xtreme Phase Power Design automatically utilizes more phases to deliver more power. Utilizing more phases actually results in lower average power loading for each phase, allowing more stable power to obtain higher overclocking performance. The ASUS Xtreme Phase Power Design is also able to automatically switch power phases in relation to current loading-ensuring that overall power efficiency is increased. With such increased power efficiency, enhanced stability and smoother operations can be obtained under any loading-as well as the added benefit of reduced power loss-helping lower operating temperatures. The ASUS Xtreme Phase Power Design can thus automatically maximize power, achieve better performance and more stability, enhance power efficiency, and lower temperatures under any loading. Furthermore, the Xtreme Phase Power Design utilizes top quality VRM components available in all ASUS motherboard models, which include: Low RDS (on) MOSFETs, Ferrite core chokes and high quality conductive polymer capacitors-allowing users to enjoy greater component durability and longer lifespans.

Turbo Key and TurboV for Easy and Precise Overclocking
The ASUS Turbo Key is an exclusive feature that transforms the PC power button into a physical overclocking button. Completing the easy setup provides users with the ability to boost performance levels with just a push of a button-presenting users with faster, more powerful performance without interrupting ongoing work or games. For hardcore users, the ASUS P5Q PRO Turbo and P5Q Turbo also feature TurboV, an advanced overclocking tool that utilizes a micro-controller to provide precise 0.02V voltage adjustments. Furthermore, users can save their preferred O.C. profiles and easily apply the best O.C. settings for different scenarios. Now anyone can enjoy performance boosts-without needing to exit the operating system or rebooting.

User-centric Exclusive Technologies
The P5Q PRO Turbo and P5Q Turbo motherboards also feature exclusive technologies that provide power saving options and instant Internet fun. With the ASUS EPU, total system power management is achieved via automatic selection of pre-existing power profiles. The ASUS Express Gate is a new and exciting one-stop gateway to instant fun, and utilizes an alternative operating system that bypasses long boot-up times without entering the default OS.

One thing,it says 2x PCI-E 2.0 16x slots.

Does it refer to crossfire mode?Don't know if they added it to the P45...

The Intel P45 can support Xfire if the board maker wants to add the second PCIe slot. Only thing is that it does not run at full 16x and 16x.

I was wondering that myself. Honestly, the P5Q-E already does rival the EP45-UD3 (anand has them pretty much neck and neck) so I guess this is aiming for that price segment right below the P5Q-E/EP45-UD3? If they were smarter they would just drop the cost on the P5Q-E. The plain P5Q heatsinks are a bit ugly in my opinion and the Pro version still seems to be lacking a bit as well. Maybe it's just because I <3 my P5Q-E

Unless they are significantly cheaper than Gigabyte UD3P and UD3R respectively, they are pointless. I had an asus P5Q Deluxe and while a decent board, not even close to what the UD3's will do.

And the Gigabyte's are much... cheaper

No it doesn't have 16x/16x, I only see a nb and sb. Foxconn on the other hand has 16x/16x p45's.
