The domicile for the latest and revolutionary Intel new flagship CPU in LGA 2011 packaging, the ASUS P9X79 comes with the industry leading specifications and a wealth of ASUS innovative technology making it an ideal foundation for your new dream system. The world's first Dual Intelligent Processors 3 with New DIGI+ Power Control allows precise DRAM tuning and CPU voltage control for better platform stability and ample overclocking margin. Support for up to 4-channel, 64GB of system memory with an 8-DIMM design maximizes the memory bandwidth to match the amazing CPU processing capability.

Features like UEFI BIOS for full-scale performance tuning with easy BIOS Interface, Power eSATA 6Gb/s, and USB BIOS Flashback for easy, worry-free BIOS update or recovery guarantee an incredible performance, easy functionality tweaking and effortless system maintenance. Quad-GPU SLI and Quad-GPU CrossFireX support in combination with the PCIe 3.0 capabilities boosts the graphics performance to a new level.

  • newegg Dual Intelligent Processors 3 with New DIGI+ Power Control The world’s first Dual Intelligent Processors from ASUS pioneered twin onboard chips - TPU (TurboV Processing Unit) and EPU (Energy Processing Unit). Third generation Dual Intelligent Processors with New DIGI+ Power Control include three digital voltage controllers, allowing ultra-precise DRAM tuning in addition to ultra-precise CPU voltage control. This evolution of innovative and industry-leading ASUS technology provides super-accurate voltage tuning for better efficiency, stability and performance.
  • newegg 8 DIMM in Quad Channel Design - X79 Done Right Support for up to 64GB of system memory with an 8-DIMM in 4-channel configuration on ASUS X79 motherboards provides the capacity for users to make full use of modern 64-bit software, ideal for rendering detailed images or manipulating large files without the bottlenecks of conventional storage. It also allows users to set up big RAM disks and speed up frequently accessed programs, minimizing the impact of storage transfer delays while maximizing user benefit.
  • newegg PCIe 3.0 Ready The latest PCI Express bus standard delivers improved encoding for twice the performance of current PCIe 2.0. Total bandwidth for an x16 link reaches a maximum of 32GB/s, double the 16GB/s of PCIe 2.0 (in x16 mode). PCIe 3.0 provides users unprecedented data speeds, combined with the convenience and seamless transition offered by complete backward compatibility with PCIe 1.0 and PCIe 2.0 devices. It’s a must-have feature for PC users aiming to improve and optimize graphics performance, as well as have the latest, most future-proof technology.
  • newegg UEFI BIOS ASUS UEFI BIOS offers the first mouse-controlled graphical BIOS designed with selectable modes, providing a user-friendly interface that goes beyond traditional keyboard-only controls. It also natively supports fully-utilized hard drives larger than 2.2TB in 64-bit operating systems. EZ Mode displays frequently-accessed info. Users can choose system performance settings and drag and drop boot priorities. Advanced Mode for performance enthusiasts includes detailed DRAM settings via a dedicated memory info page for complete insight.
  • newegg Power eSATA 6Gb/s Ready and Complete USB 3.0 Integration with USB 3.0 Boost In addition to the standard SATA 6Gbps ports, powered eSATA 6Gb/s that combines data and power connectivity are also provided. Users enjoy 2X faster transfer rates, and can use external SATA 6Gb/s devices with no additional power adapters. A new ASUS USB 3.0 Boost technology which supports UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol), the latest USB 3.0 standard, is introduced. With USB 3.0 Boost technology, a USB device's transmission speed is significantly increased up to 170%, adding to an already impressive fast USB 3.0 transfer speed. ASUS software automatically accelerates data speeds for compatible USB 3.0 peripherals without the need for any user interaction.
  • newegg Quad-GPU SLI and Quad-GPU CrossFireX Support P9X79 brings you the multi-GPU choice of either SLI or CrossFireX. The motherboard features the most powerful Intel X79 platform to optimize PCIe allocation in multiple GPU configurations. Expect a brand-new gaming style you’ve never experienced before!
