AUDIO

SUPREMEFX, SHIELDED AUDIO, SUPERIOR SOUND

ROG Strix's SupremeFX audio technology has levelled up, delivering an exceptional 113dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection for best-ever recording quality - and 120dB on line-out for crystal-clear sound! We've also added a low-dropout regulator for cleaner power delivery to the SupremeFX S1220A codec, plus Texas Instruments® RC4580 and OPA1688 op-amps for high gain with low distortion. It all adds up to audio that envelops you as never before!

ALL-ROUND ENERGY EFFICIENCY

With the Energy Processing Unit (EPU) you'll enjoy real-time, system-wide power savings - for gaming kicks that won't cost the earth! EPU automatically detects and adjusts power consumption according to your rig's needs, so you save money without compromising on thrills. EPU will also reduce CPU wattage to a set level and deliver even more savings with Away mode, creating an extreme energy-saving scenario that shuts down unused extra I/O controllers and reduces the power level of the graphics card. That means full power for your gameplay - and then total energy efficiency when you step away!
