ASUS EPU Motherboards Provide World’s First Hardware-based

Energy Saving Solution for Maximum Performance while Saving Energy


Catering to users who require motherboards that provide stable, robust performance while helping to save energy for a cleaner environment, ASUS, worldwide leader in motherboard production, has announced a brand new series of ASUS EPU motherboards. Recognizing the importance of green computing, ASUS’ EPU motherboards not only provide a hardware-driven energy saving solution that is more stable than other purely software-driven solutions, a whopping 80.23% CPU power savings and enhanced energy efficiency ratings of up to 96% is achieved – helping users in the cause to save energy for a greener environment.

ASUS Exclusive EPU Saves Up to 80.23%CPU Power

The new ASUS exclusive EPU is the world’s first intelligent hardware-based on-demand power saving microprocessor. This intelligent automatic energy saving chip is more stable than software-driven solutions (where stability can be an issue), and provides users with superior performance while in energy-saving mode in comparison to other solutions. By utilizing an innovative power technology, the EPU is able to digitally monitor current CPU usage levels and automatically fine-tune the CPU power supply with improved VRM efficiency to suit any loading. The EPU is thus able to provide users with the ability to moderate power for higher performance if required, or save up to 80.23% CPU power under low processing periods for the best possible performance with the least amount of power.



Unrivaled Enhanced Power Efficiency of up to 96%

ASUS EPU motherboards also come with the innovative AI Gear3+, which is an application that aids users in adjusting CPU frequency and vCore voltages according to their needs. Being a digital solution, and working hand in hand with the ASUS EPU, the AI Gear3+ helps users obtain an astoundingly high enhanced power efficiency rating of up to 96%! What’s more, the AI Gear3+ features a user interface that allows users to keep track in real-time exactly how much electricity and CO2 is being saved.



ASUS’ constant drive for green computing performance has produced motherboards that are both energy saving and power efficient. At the same time, ASUS places its utmost attention into providing high quality, top-notch motherboards that are far more stable and dependable than any other solution – giving users the peace of mind of utilizing the world’s best motherboards.



Innovative Features for User Convenience

With only 5 seconds boot-up time, the ASUS Express Gate offers an optional selection screen that allows you to instantly surf the Internet without entering Windows. This convenient application will now allow users to enjoy Skype, IM, YouTube, and webmail access quickly without the need to wait for the operating system to load. Another great feature for ASUS motherboard users is the onboard IEEE 802.11n draft technology support. This standard allows users to enjoy wider and stronger network coverage, and up to 6 times faster data transmissions than current 802.11b/g standards – making wireless connections more reliable and quicker. Both of these innovations are found on the ASUS P5E3 Premium/WiFi @n motherboard.
