ASUS Utilizes New Processors and Built-in Parallel Computing Support to Deliver Incredible Performance

Taipei, Sept 8, 2009 - (ACN Newswire) - ASUS, the leading provider of innovative motherboard solutions, today unveiled the ASUS P7P55 WS SuperComputer motherboard. Built around the Intel P55 Express chipset, it features the new LGA1156 socket for next-generation Intel Core i5 processors and DDR3-2133 (O.C.) memory for outstanding yet cost-effective performance. To enable multiple-GPU rendering, the motherboard supports both 3-way and 2-way graphics card configurations based on SLI or CrossFireX technology. Additionally, it leverages the NVIDIA CUDA parallel computing architecture to support three NVIDIA Tesla cards and one NVIDIA Quadro card for 250* times more computing power.

Stunning Graphics with Flexible Multi-GPU Capabilities Powered by SLI or CrossFireX Technology

The ASUS P7P55 WS SuperComputer motherboard provides incredible graphics flexibility by supporting either 3-way or 2-way multi-GPU solutions via both SLI and CrossFireX technology. Users can install up to three SLI-capable GeForce graphics cards at x16, x8, and x8 connection speeds, or two graphics cards at true x16 connection speeds. Alternatively, users can also use CrossFireX for a multi-GPU setup. These flexible options give users incredible graphics performance and enhanced scalability from asingle motherboard platform.

Massive Computing Power with CUDA Parallel Processing

With NVIDIA Tesla GPU support, the ASUS P7P55 WS SuperComputer provides the foundation for users to build a cost-effective personal supercomputer. The systemleverages the NVIDIA CUDA parallel computing architecture for a massive performance boost from four graphic cards: three NVIDIA Tesla cards and one NVIDIA Quadro card. This generates four teraflops of computing power 50 times of a standard PC-from 960 parallel processing cores. Thus, the P7P55 WS SuperComputer is suited for virtualization and heavy workload computing in the life sciences, engineering, financial modeling, and electronic design automation fields.

Extra Performance Boost with TurboV EVO-enhanced Overclocking

With ASUS TurboV EVO-a user-friendly hardware utility-both novice and hardcore overclockers can easily unleash the full potential of the CPU. Only a few easy adjustments are required to increase performance. Additionally, the TurboV Easy mode automatically optimizes voltage settings for users to achieve the most extreme yet stable performance gains. Features such as Auto Tuning also accelerates CPU speeds by up to 22.2% and memory access rates by up to 14.8% with just a button press and no additional investments.

Optimized Efficiency with Xtreme Phase and T.Probe Technology

With unique ASUS Hybrid Phase technology-comprising Xtreme Phase power delivery and dynamic T.Probe phase balancing-the P7P55 WSSuperComputer motherboard gives users a stable and ultra-cool platform to run extreme workloads. Xtreme Phase features auto-frequency switching and breakthrough 16+3 power management with independent VRM for enhanced power efficiency and phenomenalheat dissipation, while the intelligent T.Probe microchip detects and actively balances phase temperatures around the active core-for the ultimate in cool operations.

Improved Memory Compatibility with MemOK!

The MemOK! microchip eliminates possible memory issues by improving compatibility with different memory. To ensure a smooth bootup, users simply press an easy-to-access button whenever an indicator alerts them of an incompatible memory installation. This initiates the loading of safesettings that facilitates bootup with basic functionality.

Hybrid OS for Rapid Online Access and Windows 7 Support

The P7P55 WS SuperComputer features Hybrid OS which comprises ASUS Express Gate and Microsoft Windows. Express Gate integrates with Internet utilities, serving as a one-stop gateway to online applications. Users can Skype, play online interactive games, view photos or instant message their friends from a single platform and rapidly get online within 5 seconds** after boot up.Express Gate also supports 14 languages for better usability. The P7P55 WS SuperComputer also comes with Windows 7-compatible drivers for an easy Windows 7 upgrade.
