With the official launch of the Intel(r) X48 chipset drawing ever closer,
ASUS, producer of the world痴 leading motherboards, has announced the release of
the ASUS P5E3 Premium WiFi-AP @n motherboard. This powerful motherboard is the
newest member in the ASUS EPU family of motherboards, and is equipped with the
latest Intel(r) X48 chipset; and showcases the exclusive EPU Technology to
combine vigorous performance with superb energy efficiency. Additionally, this
outstanding motherboard supports DDR3 2000MHz dual-channel memory, dual PCI
Express 2.0 x16 lanes, 802.11n WiFi specifications and the innovative ASUS
Express Gate for Internet access in just 5 secs.

ASUS Exclusive EPU Saves Up to 80.23%CPU Power

Through the exclusive EPU automatic energy saving chip, the ASUS P5E3 Premium
WiFi-AP @n is able to provide users with CPU power savings of 80.23%. Able to
digitally monitor and automatically fine-tune the CPU power supply with improved
VRM efficiency under any loading, the EPU offers total control and attains the
best possible power efficiency when the PC is running low intensity programs.
Coupled with the innovative AI Gear3 Plus ・which features a new user interface
that shows users exactly how much electricity and CO2 is being saved, the ASUS
EPU can provide users with up to 50% enhanced power efficiency.

Access the Internet in 5 Secs with Express Gate

With only 5 seconds boot-up time, the ASUS Express Gate offers an optional
boot-up selection screen that allows you to instantly surf the Internet without
entering Windows. This convenient application will now allow users to enjoy
Skype, IM, YouTube, and webmail access quickly without the need to wait for the
operating system to load.

Innovative Built-in Features

The ASUS P5E3 Premium WiFi-AP @n comes equipped with numerous innovative
technologies like the onboard IEEE 802.11n draft technology support. This
standard allows for wider network coverage and data transmissions of up to 6
times faster than 802.11b/g standards. Another feature is the industry-leading
Third Generation 8-phase Power Design, which is a VRM design that can provide
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.

The ASUS P5E3 Premium WiFi-AP @n, together with the ASUS Rampage Formula, form
part of ASUS・new X48 chipset family of motherboards.
