Based on Intel’s X79 chipset, the ASRock X79 Extreme4-M supports the state-of-the-art Intel Sandy Bridge-E Core i7 processor in LGA2011 packaging to unlock the full potential of Intel’s PC. The premium gold capacitors cooperate with Digi Power to provide buttery smooth, efficient and stable power solution. There's also ASRock's exclusive XFast family including XFast USB, XFast LAN, XFast Charger and the newest member – XFast RAM, which remarkably buffs up the system's performance while extending your HDDs or SDDs lifespan at the same time. In addition, NVIDIA 3-Way SLI and AMD 3-Way CrossFireX technology guarantees eye popping visuals, making X79 Extreme4 a motherboard full of wins.
- Next-Gen PCI-E 3.0 SupportThe ASRock X79 Extreme4-M supports the Next-Gen PCI-E 3.0! PCI Express 3.0 can maximize the bandwidth for the next-gen PCI Express 3.0 VGA cards, provide ultimate graphics performance.( (Note: To run the PCI Express 3.0 slots in Gen 3 speed, CPU supporting PCI Express 3.0 is required. If you install the Sandy Bridge CPU, the PCI Express 3.0 slots will run only at Gen2 speed.)
- XFast RAM - Fully Optimize Memory UsageASRock XFast RAM is a new function that is included into ASRock Extreme Tuning Utility (AXTU). It fully utilizes the memory space that cannot be used under Windows 32-bit OS. ASRock XFast RAM also shortens the loading time of previously visited websites, making web surfing faster than ever. And it also boosts the speed of Adobe Photoshop 5 times faster. Another advantage of ASRock XFast RAM is that it reduces the frequency of accessing your SSDs or HDDs in order to extend their lifespan.
- XFast LAN TechnologyASRock XFast LAN is a smart productivity tool to help you manage your priorities of internet applications, simplify your digital life and accomplish more. The innovative features include Internet Application Prioritization, Lower Latency in Game, Traffic Shaping and Real-Time Analysis of Your Data. It's the smartest way to control your web programs.
- ASRock XFast USB Technology - Faster Than Your Imagination!ASRock XFast USB Technology redefines the new standard in high performance computing. Proving once again to be the pioneer in motherboard industry, ASRock XFast USB Series Motherboards integrate with the latest XFast USB Technology which delivers the world's fastest USB data transfer speed-boosting USB 3.0 performance up to 5X faster! (The performance boost percentage may vary with different configuration.)
- Premium Gold Caps with Digi Power and 6 + 2 Power PhaseThese 100% Japan-made solid capacitors are sleek, high gloss caps with a premium gold coating representing long life and stable performance. Combing Digi Power with digital pulse-width modulation (PWM), the ASRock motherboard can provide CPU Vcore voltage more efficiently and smoothly. Compared to analog PWM, digital PWM can optimize the CPU power solution and provide a proper and stable Vcore for the processor. And the advanced 6+2 Power Phase features sturdy components and completely smooth power delivery to the CPU. It offers unmatched overclocking capability and enhanced performance with the lowest temperatures for PC gaming enthusiasts.
- X-FanGreater air flow, faster heat dissipation! ASRock X-FAN allows the motherboard to breathe smoothly. It will be automatically activated only when the system rises to a certain temperature under heavy-loading. Normally, ASRock X-FAN will remain deactivated to give users the quietest computing experience.
