With USB 3.0 Boost technology, USB transfer speeds increased up to 1.3 times, enhancing an already impressive USB 3.0 transfer rate. ASUS software automatically accelerates data speeds for compatible USB 3.0 peripherals, without the need for any further user configuration.
ASUS Fan Xpert 2 with Optimum Fans Speeds for a Cool and Quiet System
Hardware-level ASUS Fan Xpert 2 features an Auto Tuning mode. It provides a tailored fan speed setting for each fan to achieve the best balance between cooling performance and fan noise. It even provides a “Silent” Mode for users who wish to reduce noise levels to near 0dB with a specific fan speed control.
Network iControl for Real-time Network Bandwidth Control
With a single-click, the current application can have its data and network bandwidth prioritized over other applications. Moreover, you can prioritize your favorite software easily by configuring profiles through the intuitive user interface. Within the profiles, programs can be pre-scheduled to run in a specific time period to avoid network congestion and long-waits on downloads. Auto PPPoE network connection provides a one-step setup for enhanced online convenience. Overall, it's an intuitive network bandwidth control center.
