Asus has released a special new motherboard for overclockers, the ASUS P5K3 Premium. This LGA775 motherboard comes with the latest technologies and delivers a brand new innovation – the Turbo D3 Onboard Memory feature. With this cutting-edge feature, users are guaranteed DDR3 overclocking speeds of above 1500 and reduced clock cycle timings by 50% for random data access.
Hot on the heels of ASUS's Native Support for DDR3 1333, ASUS has yet again come up with another groundbreaking technology. The P5K3 Premium provides exceptional functions and utilizes Turbo D3 – superb onboard memory features that guarantee overclocking above DDR3 1500. The Turbo D3 Design includes the Perfect T-Tree Design, ASUS's exclusive Super Memspeed Technology and the revolutionary Hyper PCB Design.
The P5K3 Premium motherboard utilizes the cutting-edge Perfect T-Tree Design to provide users with simultaneous random data access on every memory chip. What this means is that data access to each memory chip occurs at the same time, instead of conventional DDR3 Fly-by Topologies that require time to be spent waiting for one by one random data access. This reduces clock cycle timing by 50% for random data access – thereby ensuring faster memory speeds.
Additionally, an innovative Hyper PCB Design provides good power delivery and cleaner signals with less crosstalk. It also provides more ground layers to provide better heat dissipation for thermal purposes – allowing users to enjoy faster speeds for better overclocking.
