ASUS recently launched E3 Pro Gaming V5, an ATX motherboard based on the latest Intel C232 Express chipset and packed with game-enhancing exclusive features for superior gaming experience, powered packed with gaming-grade SupremeFX and Sonic Radar II audio, gaming-grade Intel Gigabit Ethernet with ASUS LANGuard and GameFirst technologies for fast, safe and lag-free online play.
E3 Pro Gaming V5 offers desktop gamers the unique opportunity to benefit from the performance, stability and ready availability of the latest server-grade Xeon E3-1200 v5 processors based on Intel’s high-efficiency 14nm ‘Skylake’ architecture. It also supports the newest high-speed DDR4 memory modules, for cooler, faster and more efficient performance.
The new motherboard is equipped for superior cooling with a dedicated water-pump header, plus intuitive Fan Xpert 3 controls. It also offers the very latest connectivity, with USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A, reversible USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C and NVM Express (NVMe) M.2 all built in.
E3 Pro Gaming V5 includes exclusive RAMCache technology to accelerate game loads, and has durable Gamer’s Guardian components to ensure longevity. The new ASUS motherboard is engineered with ASUS-exclusive SupremeFX audio technology for in-game sound that’s alive with realism. The purity and stability of the remarkable 115dB signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is assured, with a shielded design, electromagnetic-interference (EMI) cover and voltage-protected 5V power supply.
Supreme FX’s superior components, including the trusted Realtek ALC1150 codec, maximize acoustic performance and eliminate interference — so only the very best audio is enjoyed through either gaming headsets or speakers.
The motherboard also enables gamers to become hunters rather than the hunted with Sonic Radar II, a stealthy overlay that shows what opponents and teammates are up to on the battlefield — all managed via a simple control panel and customizable game list. Sonic Radar II shows both the direction and origin of key in-game sounds, enabling ASUS gamers to practice enemy-pinpointing skill. It even includes Audio Enhancement technology to clarify every sound detail — providing an audible heads-up to vital events.
Multiple advanced networking technologies to ensure E3 Pro Gaming V5 gamers are victorious, including tournament-level Intel Gigabit Ethernet, ASUS-exclusive LANGuard and GameFirst technologies to keep the connection fast and free from lag.
All-new and exclusive GameFirst technology prioritizes game-related packets and allocates more bandwidth to games, eliminating laggy gameplay, streaming stutters and file-sharing slowdown. GameFirst also includes Multi-Gate Teaming to team all available networks for maximum bandwidth and the smoothest-ever gameplay.
E3 Pro Gaming V5’s integrated onboard water-pump header makes the best water-cooling efficiency instantly accessible, and Fan Xpert 3 ensures that every fan maximizes cooling performance while minimizing noise.
The new gaming motherboard is protected by multiple self-defenses called Gamer’s Guardian, including the Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) for ultra-clean power delivery, DRAM Overcurrent Protection with resettable fuses to prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage, superior chokes, durable and high-temperature-resistant capacitors, and a corrosion-resistant stainless-steel input/output (I/O) back panel. It also has ASUS ESD Guards to actively protect against sudden electrostatic discharge (ESD).
E3 Pro Gaming V5 is the first ASUS consumer motherboard to support Xeon E3-1200 v5 processors. It will be followed in 2016 by multiple additions to the popular ASUS Signature series, including the ATX E3-Pro V5 and micro ATX (mATX) E3M-ET V5 and E3M-Plus V5. Every ASUS Signature motherboard is engineered with multiple advanced hardware safeguards and LED-illuminated audio.
