Thunderbolt Onboard An industry first, Asus has placed Thunderbolt I/O technology onboard, and is set to revolutionize the speed at which peripherals and displays operate. Featuring a maximum bi-directional speed of 10 Gbps, Thunderbolt is two times faster than USB 3.0, and an incredible 20 times faster than USB 2.0. And with the ability to daisy-chain up to six devices without the need for a hub or switch, that means less overheard for a clutter-free computing experience. For example, users can connect multiple native Thunderbolt storage devices, an HD video capture device, and even an HD display to a single Thunderbolt chain while maintaining maximum throughput. You can also connect a DisplayPort, DVI, HDMI, or VGA display with an existing adapter.

Just plug in a USB flash drive containing the BIOS file, and press the BIOS Flashback button for three seconds with the power supply connected. The UEFI BIOS will then automatically update without requiring further interaction. With its new, complementary Windows application, users can regularly check for UEFI BIOS updates and download the latest BIOS automatically. Hassle-free updating for the ultimate convenience!
DTS Connect and DTS UltraPC II To get the most out of your audio entertainment, DTS Connect combines two enabling technologies. DTS Neo:PC™ upmixes stereo sources (CDs, MP3s, WMAs, internet radio) into as many as 7.1 channels of incredible surround sound. Consumers can then connect their PC to a home theater system. DTS Interactive is capable of performing multi-channel encoding of DTS bitstreams on personal computers, and sending encoded bitstreams out of a digital audio connection (such as S/PDIF or HDMI) designed to deliver audio to an external decoder. DTS UltraPC II delivers exceptional 7.1 surround through the most popular PC audio setups – your existing stereo speakers or headphones. In addition to virtual surround, it upgrades original sound to new levels with Audio Restoration, recreating the dynamic range of audio files. Symmetry mode improves the balance of perceived loudness across different input sources, and Enhance boosts audio quality through high- and low-frequency equalization.
