Product Description:

Asus A88XM-E AMD A88X Socket FM2 Matx Motherboard

• FM2+ socketed motherboard features high-endurance 5X Protection and new UEFI BIOS on the A88X chipset
• ASUS 5X PROTECTION - All-round protection provides the best quality, reliability, and durability
• New UEFI BIOS – Friendlier, easier, and more intuitive with helpful info added
• USB 3.0 Boost (UASP Support) - 170% faster transfer speeds than traditional USB 3.0
• AI Suite 3 - One-Stop Access to Innovative ASUS Features


5X Protection:
ASUS motherboards guard your PC with 5X Protection. We use quality components like DIGI+ VRM digital power design for precise APU power on demand, ESD units tested to strict standards that eliminate electrostatic interference, and resettable fuses around DRAM slots to prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. We also use corrosion-resistant back I/O shields, all examples of ASUS providing the best possible reliability and durability.

Media-renowned UEFI BIOS from ASUS provides the smoothest mouse-controlled graphical BIOS, and now features more intuitive functions to quickly take you to favorite BIOS pages and frequently-accessed settings through custom shortcuts. You can even write quick notes in-BIOS for future reference, view an activity log of setting changes and modifications, and rename SATA ports. EZ Mode has a whole new look, upgraded with extra-friendly capabilities like detailed fan controls, D.O.C.P profile settings, SATA information, and fast clock adjustment. Together, these perfect your BIOS experience.

Performance Optimization:
ASUS USB 3.0 Boost technology supports UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol) in Windows 8. With USB 3.0 Boost technology, a USB device's transmission speed is significantly increased up to 170%, adding to already fast USB 3.0 performance. ASUS software automatically accelerates data rates for compatible USB 3.0 peripherals without any user interaction.

Press the Q-Slot clip lightly, and graphics cards just pop out. The large winged clip is easy to reach so you don’t have to struggle with installing or removing even the biggest graphics cards.
