ASUS Announces New Generation P5N-T Deluxe Motherboard with 3-Way SLI Technology

ASUS has announced the release of the ASUS P5N-T Deluxe motherboard that supports the NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI chipset, which, in turn, supports ESA (Enthusiast System Architecture), the open-standard PC monitoring and control protocol for real-time communication and control of system thermal, electrical, acoustic and operating characteristics. It also provides extreme performance with support for the latest 3-Way SLI technology and Dual PCI Express 2.0 x16 lanes; while the world's first ASUS EPU (Energy Processing Unit) digitally monitors CPU power supply and fine-tunes it with improved VRM efficiency in heavy or light loadings to attain the best possible power efficiency and energy savings to help save the environment. The P5N-T Deluxe also comes with Precision Tweaker 2 that offers super-fine adjustments to voltages for breaking brand new O.C records.

The NVIDIA 3-Way SLI (Scalable Link Interface) takes advantage of the increased bandwidth of the PCI Express 2.0 bus architecture and features intelligent hardware and software that allows three graphics cards to efficiently work together to deliver earth-shattering, scalable performance.

The ASUS-developed EPU is the first hardware-based on-demand power saving IC controller. This new generation automatic energy saving chip utilizes an innovative power technology to digitally monitor and fine-tune the CPU power supply with improved VRM efficiency in heavy or light loadings. By having real-time automatic detection of the CPU current, it can provide total control under any loading and attain the best possible power efficiency and fantastic energy savings to help save the environment automatically providing users with more power for higher loadings, and saving up to 58.6% CPU power when the PC is running low intensity applications.

The industry-leading ASUS 3rd generation 8-phase VRM design provides up to which provides 7% enhanced power efficiency by utilizing high quality power components that include low RDS (on) MOSFETs for minimum switching loss & lower temperature, Ferrite core chokes with lower hysteresis loss, and high quality Japanese-made conductive polymer capacitors for longer component life and lower power loss that prolongs CPU lifespans.

Precision Tweaker 2 allows the user to adjust the NB Voltage, FSB termination Voltage, CPU PLL Voltage and the DRAM Voltage in 0.02v steps to finetune voltages to achieve the most precise setting for the ultimate customized overclocking configuration.
