This motherboard supports the Intel Ivy Bridge processors in the LGA1155 package, with memory and PCI Express controllers integrated to support 2-channel DDR3 memory and 16 PCI Express 2.0 lanes. This provides great graphics performance. Intel Ivy Bridge processors are among the most powerful and energy efficient CPUs in the world.
The PCI Express bus standard delivers improved encoding for twice the performance of current PCIe 2.0. Total bandwidth for a x16 link reaches a maximum of 32GB/s, double the 16GB/s of PCIe 2.0 (in x16 mode). PCIe 3.0 provides users unprecedented data speeds, combined with the convenience and seamless transition offered by complete backward compatibility with PCIe 1.0 and PCIe 2.0 devices.
