Virtu Universal MVP - Uncompromised Game Response Performance

Z77 Extreme4
ASRock motherboard supports Lucid Virtu Universal MVP technology which improves your PC's visuals with faster response times, improved video processing, and smoother media playback, all with low power consumption. Brilliantly designed for gaming, Virtu Universal MVP™ switchable graphics software assigns tasks dynamically to the best graphics resource and features two exciting techniques – HyperFormance™ and Virtual Vsync™.

1. HyperFormance™ - Optimized Game Responsiveness:

Game responsiveness is all about how fast your eye → brain → mouse click → game response behaves. When interacting with your computer, the responsiveness is a key factor to your productivity and overall systems experience. When it comes to playing games, especially fast moving ones like First Person Shooters, responsiveness becomes critical for both mastering the game and enjoying and immersive experience.

HyperFormance intelligently removes redundant rendering tasks within the graphics pipeline, the CPU-GPU-Display system.

Z77 Extreme4

  • Boosts responsiveness and FPS of any game
  • Improves gaming frame rates 30-70%
  • Increases Vsync frame rates - 120 FPS+
  • Sharpens visual quality without tearing
  • Works seamlessly with hundreds of games

2. Virtual Vsync™ - Resolve the Everlasting Debate Between Quality and Performance:

Lucid's Virtual Vsync technology takes visual quality and performance to the next level. A proprietary solution for Virtu Universal and Virtu MVP, Virtual Vsync enables games to run at any FPS, with no image tearing, stuttering, lags and latency artifacts.

  • Enhanced performance - when system has dGPU and iGPU
  • Unlimited frame rates - beyond traditional in-game Vsync
  • Flawless visual quality without tearing
  • Up to 250% better responsiveness vs. standard Vsync

2 out of 5 eggsCrossfire Issues

Pros: Pretty cheap, most basic things work, good BIOS.

Cons: Crossfire does not work with my dual HD 7950s. Either card will boot in either spot, but when I boot with both it will not initiate boot OS like it cannot detect the HD with both cards in. The best part is, they do not offer the same level of RMA service like most companies. They will not send you a replacement while putting a hold on your credit card. You have to be without a computer for up to 2 weeks. I will never buy another ASRock product for this reason. Their customer service also sends vague emails in broken english. Go with a brand with a decent RMA program, this one is the worst I have encountered with any part I've used.

Other Thoughts: buy a brand with real RMA support for real users.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

Sorry to hear that mainboard having issue with dual HF 7950.
Please reseat the VGA cards firmly with its PCIE power.
Check if the power supply meets the requirement wattage for 2 x VGA cards.

However, we will be more than happy to replace the mainboard if it’s malfunctioned.
For the returning product, please refer to RMA policy at " http://www.ASRock.com/support/index.asp?cat=Policy ".

Pros: worked great while it lasted.

Cons: started having usb problems and then usb 2.0 ports died and 3.0 ports do not recognize 2.0 devices. i have owned almost every other board out there and never had a problem with a motherboard before. do not buy this board. i will not use asrock boards ever again. i dont care if they gave me a new one i would throw it in the trash. its not worth the headache.

Other Thoughts: newegg should stop selling this trash. asrock is trash save your money and time

Pros: This MB has a really easy to use BIOS, and a lot of nice add on features available in the software package instead of just useless bloatware.
I've had this MB since 2012 and it it still chugging along great with the many upgrades I've done along the way.

3 out of 5 eggsUSB Fails

Pros: I've had this board just over a year now. For me, it has been fine, until that last month or so both the USB 2 and USB 3 ports are starting to die.

Cons: The USB 2 and USB 3.0 ports are dying. I will be right in the middle of something and my mouse and keyboard freeze (until reboot), and I lose everything. Happens every couple of days now. Did a fresh reinstall (went from Windows 7 x64 to Windows 8.1 x64) in order to determine if it was a software/driver problem, and the problem came back instantly. Tried 2 different mice and one different keyboard with no luck. It is absolutely the motherboard. All BIOS updates and other such options have been tried with no luck. Plain and simple, these motherboards have great accessories, but are just flaky. I believe it is a physical design issue rather than firmware. I was a pc tech for 6 years. The motherboard is at fault here.

Other Thoughts: At least it wasn't DOA. However, it is a real pain in the keester to have all your software and OS installed and have to replace a motherboard. Other things can be replaced far more easily (no os reinstall, etc). A motherboard needs to be solid. I would advise choosing a different board.

5 out of 5 eggsJust One Additional Thought

Pros: See my earlier review.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Just one additional thought--After reading a number of the negative reviews here, I have to agree with one of the commentators who noted that almost all of the problems listed are easy to fix for someone with more tech experience. If you are buying ANY motherboard, it is presumed that you are going into it understanding that "some assembly is required" and have the basic technical skill and knowledge to accomplish the task. Don't buy into the negative reviews of a bunch of hacks who don't really know what they are doing. Especially troubling are the negative reviews from people who can't even write in coherent sentences with proper spelling and punctuation (e.g., the guy who claims to have 30 years of computer building experience and repeatedly misspells "heatsink" as "heat-sync.")

If you really DO have a board with a defect (and this goes for all manufacturers, not just ASRock), don't complain about the lack of customer support when you aren't even willing to make the effort to reach out to them. The number of people on here who have complained about bad boards and made no effort to contact tech support is simply astounding.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome LGA1155 Choice

Pros: Overclocking capability. High performance memory support. Full UEFI functionality. SLI support. ASRock customer support.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This is the perfect choice for someone with a working 3rd generation Intel processor who wants UEFI and PCIe 3.0 support. I switched to this board from a Gigabyte board when it became readily apparent that Gigabyte's Hybrid EFI bios was causing some significant stability issues with Windows 8.1 and Nvidia drivers. If you have run into similar issues with your Gigabyte board and want to continue to make use of your other compatible hardware, this board is the perfect choice.

Customized overclocking is a breeze with this board. I currently have my Intel Core i7 3770K running at 4.8 Ghz using a Corsair H100i liquid cooling system. At full bore, the 3770K runs at about 70-75C at that clock speed and 20-25C at idle. The 32 gig G.Skill TridentX 2400 Mhz RAM kit I installed is fully supported and syncs perfectly with the 3770K when it is overclocked to double the speed of the RAM. I have one Nvidia GTX970 in one of the two PCIe x16 slots and will be adding a second one soon. SLI is fully supported. Benchmarks with this setup blow every other 4 core processor configuration away. No doubt the latest 6 and 8 core configurations will do somewhat better, but at a much cost. The improvement in stability and performance for gaming and video editing is simply ridiculous when compared to my Gigabyte build.

ASRock customer support is also outstanding. When I have needed their help, that have always been very responsive and eager to help. The US support team in California is particularly accommodating.

Finally, boot up times are the fastest I've seen on any machine. The bios is configurable with three boot up options--1) Standard; 2) Fast; and 3) Ultra Fast. If you are running Windows 8.1 and a current generation video card, the Ultra Fast option will get you to the logon screen in about 2 seconds from a cold dead start. With a Samsung 500 gig SSD as my OS drive, I get to a usable desktop in about 2 more seconds from logging on. Mind you, I'm not talking about from a sleep state, this is all from a cold dead start.

All-in-all, this is simply an outstanding board.
