ASUS continues its innovation leadership by adding new features to unlock the full potential of AMD 890FX Motherboards.
ASUS is proud to announce two boards based on AMD’ latest 890FX
chipset, the Republic of Gamers Crosshair IV Formula and the M4A89TD
PRO. These boards are produced with the philosophy that design matters,
ensuring the best in performance, features, safety and reliability.
Continuing with the award winning Core Unlocking technology first
introduced in our M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 motherboard, ASUS announces Turbo
Unlocker technology allowing for the best possible performance out of
the AMD Phenom II Black Edition and 6-core processors.
Speaking on the inclusion of these two unique tools, Joe Hsieh, General
Manager of Motherboard Business with ASUS, said: "ASUS will never stop
developing the friendliest and most performance-boosting features
available to consumers, whether enthusiasts, beginners or anyone else.
Both Core Unlocker and Turbo Unlocker realize CPU potential, making
them ideal for users looking for the best value on the best performance
Real Time Core Boost on All Phenom II Black Edition and Six-Core CPUs
Turbo Unlocker technology represents the next evolution in performance
tuning for the AMD Phenom II Black Edition and Six-Core processors.
Only a one-click input within the exclusive ASUS TurboV Evo software is
required to attain even more computing power as Turbo Unlocker*
intelligently adjusts CPU core clock speeds based on application
workload. When running optimized single-core applications, Turbo
Unlocker dynamically adjusts clock speed on a single processor core to
ensure maximum performance. For multi-threaded applications, all
processor core speeds are dynamically increased to attain the highest
performance available. Performance enhancements via Turbo Unlocker
occur instantly based on actual system conditions, so system operation
is always safe, reliable, and stable.
ASUS is the Best AMD Choice for the Gamer, Enthusiast, or Overclocker
Both new 890FX solutions, the ROG Crosshair IV Formula and the M4A89TD
PRO offer unrivaled flexibility and system performance. The ROG
Crosshair IV Formula offers the best overclocking and gaming experience
with dedicated hardware, software, and BIOS design for the hard-core
enthusiast or serious gamer while the M4A89TD PRO features an
affordable high performance platform intended for the computing
enthusiast. For users looking for the next level in performance ASUS
has refined our award winning TurboV Evo auto-tuning hardware and
software implementation to easily provide enhanced system performance
while ensuring stability and reliability.
Unrivalled CPU Unlocking Leadership
ASUS is proud to continue its award winning Core Unlocking innovation
first introduced in AMD’s 700 series chipsets. ASUS’ unique hardware
based unlocking technology remains the most reliable and successful way
to unlock additional cores for performance improvements on motherboards
using the AMD 800-series chipset. Now unlocking is easier, quicker, and
more reliable than competing solutions. By pressing one key at system
startup, ASUS Core Unlocker* then intelligently scans the supported CPU
for functional cores and cache and automatically implements the safest
yet highest performing setting without further user intervention.
Next Generation Connectivity
The ROG Crosshair IV Formula and the upcoming M4A89TD PRO/USB3 feature
next generation technologies like native SATA 6Gb/s performance along
with USB 3.0 connectivity. These super-fast connections bring users
into the HD era with the speed and reliability needed to handle large
file transfers quickly. Both motherboards feature two USB 3.0 ports,
transferring data at up to ten times the speed of USB 2.0. SATA 6Gb/s
offers twice the throughput of its predecessor ensuring the best
performance possible from cutting edge Solid-State drives (SSD).
