ASUS India has announced the launch of P5K3/P5K series motherboards on 3 July ’07 which have outstanding features for the user in terms of overclocking and performance. With innovative technologies like the ASUS exclusive Super Memspeed Technology, AI-Gear2 and AI Slot Detector, they are able to provide users with easy overclocking choices to break through the overclocking limit, assist in proper installation for PCIe/PCI Devices, and great energy savings. According to Vinay Shetty, Product Manager, Components, ASUS India, “These motherboards offer a range of features, whose applications go beyond the realm of conventional computing. The P5K3/P5K is targeted towards enthusiasts and regular consumers alike, but more so towards the enthusiasts. The Gamers are going to enjoy the overclocking feature. The Feature rich solution like Super Memspeed Technology will truly unleash the power of DDR3 to the benefit of Gamers. Moreover, the power saving feature also results in cost efficient PC usage.” All of the ASUS P5K series motherboards support Super Memspeed Technology – a technology that provides outstanding performance regardless of different DRAM specifications and overclocking margins. By breaking through current FSB and DRAM ratio proportions with full support of native DDR3 1333 to match CAS Latency from 7 to 10, these motherboards keep users one step ahead by protecting user purchase investment. With native DDR3 1333 support, these motherboards already have an edge over other technologies that run at reduced frequencies of DDR3 1066 or require overclocking to even reach DDR3 1333. With better overclocking options, the P5K3 Deluxe is thus able to overclock up to 2032MHz for DDR3 memory – an enhancement of up to 90.6%, while the P5K Deluxe is able to reach 1400MHz for DDR2 memory. ASUS’s AI Slot Detector lets users know if their PCIe/PCI devices are properly inserted into the slots while they are installed. By just plugging in the power cable; even without switching on the PC or entering the operating system, ASUS’s innovative on-board LEDs provide an efficient way to identify the correct way to set up the PC. AI Gear2 allows users to choose from four profiles (Maximum Performance, High Performance, Medium Performance and Max Power Saving) to adjust CPU frequency and vCore voltage to minimize system noise and power consumption. With all these technologies, the ASUS P5K3/P5K series motherboards provide users with decreased temperatures, stable overclocking, lowered noise levels and energy savings to suit their overclocking and performance needs.
