    ASUS today released the ASUS P5N72-T Premium motherboard. Equipped with the ASUS exclusive EPU technology for astounding energy savings, this high performance motherboard supports enhanced specifications of the front side bus and memory – able to reach an FSB of 1600MHz (originally 1333MHz) and 1200MHz (originally 1066MHz) respectively.

    It is also able to provide amazing graphical performances with the NVIDIA 3-Way SLI support; and includes the ROG SupremeFX II audio card for realistic and exceptional sound effects – making playing games more engaging. What's more the well-known Kaspersky anti-virus software package with 1-year license is included in the giftbox – providing protection against malicious viruses.

    ASUS EPU for Outstanding CPU Power Savings
    The new ASUS exclusive EPU is the world's first intelligent on-demand power saving microprocessor. This intelligent automatic energy saving chip is more stable than software-driven solutions, and provides users with superior performance while in energy-saving mode in comparison to other solutions. By utilizing an innovative power technology, the EPU is able to digitally monitor current CPU usage and automatically fine-tune the CPU power supply with improved VRM efficiency to suit any loading. The EPU is thus able to provide users with the ability to moderate power for higher performance if required, or save CPU power under low processing periods for the best possible performance with the least amount of power – achieving industry-leading power savings.

    Great Gaming Experiences with 3-Way SLI and HD Audio
    The P5N72-T Premium allows enthusiast gamers to fully immerse themselves into their gaming worlds with support for NVIDIA’s 3-Way SLI technology in PCI-E 2.0 mode. With a 3-way SLI setup that consists of three high-end video cards running with full x16 lanes to deliver smoother, scalable 3D performances, higher 3DMark world records and smoother gameplay with higher frame rates and better antialiasing will result for a better gaming experience.

    On the audio side, the ROG SupremeFX II audio card delivers an excellent high definition audio experience to gamers. Featuring unique virtual surround audio innovations that work with gamers' headphones – this audio card allows gamers to easily spot enemies in 3D environments during game play – allowing them to fully enjoy their gaming environments. SupremeFX II also provides gamers a special tool to emphasize human voices in games – helping make dialogues clearer and more audible.

    I hope they have ironed out most of the problems that the Formula II had.

    The 790i has some generic problems also such as data corruption and SLI freezing while 3D gaming. Maybe they don't have a fix, or DDR3 prices are still too expensive not attracting enough customers?

    To me the board looks like a SLI version of the Max board... Not the color, but the layout with everything...

    Meh, it's just a PCB revision of the Striker II Formula with that EPU thingy thrown in.

    All the NF 7x0 chipsets currently have a video corruption bug when used with nvidia cards. Only current solution is to use an OpenGL renderer like VLC. The longest thread on the EVGA boards currently has found no other solution. It annoys me because VLC won't play my wmv 1080p vids.

    Well either AMD or Intel have the best chipset imho but only for crossfire no SLI, Nvidia need to sort the chipset probs they seem never ending, Cos im nearly ready for a new rig ( after a minor set back few weeks ago ) and Intel are looking the best for me.
    But Asus really know how to make attractive boards well done.

    As Cold Storm said..looks initially like the Maximus Formula..
    Now I'm waiting for reviews and wondering why I went with this Formula; I hope the 4870 drivers make it worth the CF

    poor timing on my part, as usual :laugh:

    Looks great. But that power saving sh*t is what I am staying away from. Also theres still no boards doing PCIe 2.0 16X yet.
