ASUS has announced the launch of their new Intel B75 chipset-based P8B75-M motherboard. It supports the Intel 3rd/2nd generation processors in the LGA1155 package, with iGPU, memory and PCI Express controllers integrated to support onboard graphics output with dedicated chipsets, 2-channel (4 DIMM) DDR3 memory and 16 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 lanes that provides great graphics performance. The pricing for the new series is as follows:
- P8B75-M – Rs.6,590
- P8B75-M LE – Rs.6,153
- P8B75-V – Rs.7,015
Designed for the business segment
"We are happy to offer our customers B75 chipset-based motherboard focused on SMB/SME segment. The board has Intel SBA (Small Business Advantage) which is a combination of hardware and software that provides unique security and productivity capabilities designed for small businesses,” said Mr. Vinay Shetty - Country Head - Component Business, ASUS India. “With ASUS DIGI+ VRM, users can ensure a more efficient and stable system with digital power design for both the CPU and iGPU. Also the motherboard meets Protect 3.0 Standard which includes Anti-Surge Protection, 50% less radiation and EPU energy saving design to further provide a robust energy efficient system. Having ASUS Network iControl, users can manage network bandwidth in real time prioritizing programs, setting up profiles, and schedules all through an easy to use user-friendly interface.”
The ASUS P8B75 board features PCI Express 3.0 (PCIe 3.0) that is the latest PCI Express bus standard with improved encoding schemes that provides twice the performance of current PCIe 2.0. Total bandwidth for an x16 link reaches a maximum of 32GB/s, double the 16GB/s of PCIe 2.0 (in x16 mode). As such, PCIe 3.0 provides users with high data speeds, combined with the convenience and seamless transition offered by complete backward compatibility with PCIe 1.0 and PCIe 2.0 devices. PCIe 3.0 will become a must-have feature for users who wish to improve and optimize graphic performance, as well as have the latest technology available to them. With the Intel B75 Chipset natively supporting next-generation Serial ATA (SATA) storage interface, this motherboard delivers up to 6.0 Gb/s data transfer rates. Additionally, users get enhanced scalability, faster data retrieval, double the bandwidth of current bus systems. With ASUS USB 3.0 Boost, USB devices benefit from the enhanced read/write performance using one of the two available modes (UASP, Turbo). ASUS UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) BIOS with EZ Mode offer a graphical interface that is user-friendly for both typical and advanced users to make necessary adjustments and update BIOS easily.
The board also features the latest Lucid Virtu MVP with HyperFormance Technology optimizing graphics performance by providing outstanding gaming responsiveness, sharper visual quality and improved frame rates all with low power consumption. This latest hybrid graphics boost technology fully utilizes fast-computing iGPU and discrete graphics cards in your system for a graphical performance boost up to 60 percent. Also with the newly designed Virtual Sync, users can enjoy a smoother gaming experience by eliminating tearing artifacts. LucidLogix Virtu MVP could also dynamically assign tasks to the best available graphics resource, based on power, performance and system load. This allows users to fully utilize 3x faster video conversion with Intel Quick Sync Video 2.0 technology while retaining high-end 3D rendering and gaming performance, provided by both NVIDIA and AMD graphic cards. When the discrete graphics card is not required, power consumption goes automatically down to near zero, making the system more environmentally-friendly. For users searching for perfection, LucidLogix Virtu MVP provides great graphical performance and the best flexibility and efficiency.
