Ultimate Gaming Experience
The Sound Tracker is a visual indicator that points out the directions from which predominant sounds are coming. Each sound is properly positioned in 360 on a radar for a full immersion during the game.
Works on any devices!
Enjoy the vibrant and high-quality Surround Sound on all your favourite audio devices: Jack, USB, Bluetooth, HDMI, S/PDIF. Nahimic is compatible with all of your favourite audio tools and ensures the best sound with any of them. Nahimic measure and improve to optimize our technology and offer you the best experience.
In addition to the built-in RGB illumination, it also features onboard RGB headers and an addressable RGB header that allow motherboard to be connected to compatible LED devices such as strip, CPU fans, coolers, chassis and so on. Users may also synchronize RGB LED devices across the Polychrome RGB Sync-certified accessories to create their own unique lighting effects.
High Speed M.2 Solution
This motherboard is capable of accommodating multiple PCI Express 4.0 M.2 SSDs, which is capable of performing twice the speed compared to previous 3rd generation, giving a lightning fast data transferring experience.
Dragon 2.5 Gb/s LAN
The intelligent 2.5Gb/s LAN platform is built for maximum networking performance for the demanding requirements of home networking, content creators, online gamers and high-quality streaming media. Boost networking performance up to 2.5X the bandwidth compared to the standard gigabit Ethernet, you'll enjoy the faster and uncompromised connectivity experience for gaming, file transfers and backups.
Base Frequency Boost (BFB) Technology
BFB Technology allow the use of increasing TDP to enjoy the base frequency boost with the hidden power of processors with users' non K series CPUs and ASRock's selected 600 series motherboards
While ASRock BFB breathes life into non K series CPUs, the boost frequency currently still depends on the cooling system applied on your rig.
Dual USB 3.2 Gen2 (Type-A + Type-C)
This motherboard has a pair of onboard Type-A and Type-C USB 3.2 Gen2 ports built on the rear i/o for supporting next generation USB 3.2 Gen2 devices and to deliver up to 10 Gbps data transfer rates.
Get the most convenient BIOS flashing with just a simple click. Users can easily achieve the latest BIOS support with a USB and power supply, No CPU, RAM or other components required.
