APS - Active Phase Switching
Active Phase Switching, or APS, technology is an intelligent design that helps to save energy on MSI's motherboards. The underlying idea is to switch off the power supply as soon as no electricity is needed, and when the system needs more resources again, APS will automatically adjust electricity supply accordingly. APS will automatically detect your processor's loading at any given time and save energy accordingly. This is only possible by means of a very advanced power controlling technology. Other than software-based solutions, APS technology stands out from MSI's own research. The specially developed IC chip can operate automatically depending on the demands of the power supply, which is to reduce the total power usage.
Compared to common motherboards which need extra BIOS chips, MSI's M-Flash has a double advantage - first, it doesn't need extra components, and second, all your BIOS data will be saved in the USB drive.
