ASUS today announced the launch of a new motherboard series based on the Intel® H57 and H55 chipsets. The ASUS P7H57D/P7H55 Series supports the new Intel® Core™ i7, Core™ i5, Core™ i3, and Pentium® processors with three ATX and four mATX models to provide the best value for the new LGA1156 platform. Featuring exclusive GPU Boost technology, the series delivers a rich visual experience for enhanced HD gaming. Built with Xtreme Design features, the P7H57D/P7H55 Series delivers optimized and energy-efficient performance. The P7H57D-V EVO also supports next-generation USB 3.0 and SATA 6G technology for faster data throughput and better storage performance.

 

Powerful Graphics Acceleration with GPU Boost Technology

The P7H57D/P7H55 Series features GPU Boost technology designed to kick visual performance into overdrive. This graphics acceleration feature delivers an instant 50% performance boost to the onboard Intel® HD Graphics processor to support high-definition frame rates that add realism to a user’s gaming experience. GPU Boost also includes advanced overclocking options—easily accessed through an intuitive user interface—for users to control graphics acceleration parameters to achieve an even more stunning visual performance. Additionally, GPU Boost helps lower energy consumption through the use of the ASUS Energy Processing Unit (EPU) engine—a comprehensive power saving system. The EPU detects the onboard HD graphics processor load and intelligently moderates power output in response to varying requirements.

 

Fastest Data Throughput with True USB 3.0 and SATA 6G Technology

Users can expect ultra-fast data transfers with the latest bandwidth technology support. A Unique PCIe X4 Bridge Chip delivers true SATA 6G and USB 3.0 performance that maximizes the transfer rates of SATA 6Gb/s hard drives and delivers data transfer speeds ten times that of current USB 2.0 standards. Such significant improvements enable users to transfer a 25GB HD movie file in 70 seconds or save a 4MB song in less than 0.01 seconds.

 

Optimized Performance with Xtreme Design Hybrid Features

With Xtreme Design innovations such as Hybrid Processors, the P7H57D-V EVO/P7H55-M Series delivers intuitive and real-time overclocking as well as automatic performance tuning. Additionally, an enhanced CPU Level Up feature enables users to instantly upgrade their processor via a simple click. This upgrade does not involve the purchase of additional hardware or software—giving an instant performance boost at no extra cost.
