ASUS P8Z68-V PRO Motherboards In Photos

Although Intel Z68 Express is slated for May 8, major motherboard makers already have samples at the ready. Our Chinese colleagues photographed the ASUS P8Z68-V PRO board, and in much detail at that.

So, the board supports 2nd generation Intel Core processors for the socket LGA 1155. It offers four DDR3 sockets and a 16-phase DIGI+ VRM.

DIGI+ VRM is a part of the Dual Intelligent Processors design that includes the Energy Processing Unit (EPU) and TurboV Processing Unit (TPU). It's called to improve performance and provide the maximum power efficiency.

Expandability is provided by three PCIe x16 slots, two of which (white and grey) work in the x4 mode, as well as the PCIe and PCI slots.

Storage drives can be connected to two SATA 3Gbps ports (cyan) and two SATA 6Gbps ports (white and blue).

The back panel features six USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ones, optical S/PDIF, eSATA, Bluetooth, as well as HDMI, D-Sub and DVI.

The logo indicates support for the LucidLogix Virtu technology that dynamically switches between the discrete graphics card and the graphics core integrated into processor.

No pricing data has been disclosed yet.
