The dual intelligent processors from ASUS pioneered the use of two onboard chips - EPU (Energy Processing Unit) and TPU (TurboV Processing Unit). The next generation of dual intelligent processors 2 with DIGI+ VRM provides precise Vcore PWM, integrated graphics voltages and frequency module adjustments with minimal power loss through BIOS tuning and an exclusive user interface to increase the board's overclocking range while performance reaches its full potential. ASUS DIGI+ VRM digital power design empowers users with superior flexibility and perfect precision to ensure optimized performance, extreme system stability and greater power efficiency.
VRM, or voltage regulator modules, is considered among the most essential motherboard design components. They supply the voltage demanded by the CPU, and a good VRM must intelligently detect actual CPU power draw to provide precise power accordingly. ASUS DIGI+ VRM features a digital programmable microprocessor onboard to perfectly match digital power signal (SVID) requests from the CPU, eliminating digital-to-analog conversion lag. The precise power delivery minimizes power transfer loss to provide highest power efficiency, greater performance, and rock solid stability with the most flexible power adjustment than traditional analog power design.
