  • Introducing the latest motherboard from the award-winning TUF (The Ultimate Force) series the SABERTOOTH X79. This board features the Intel X79 chipset supporting the Intel LGA2011 2nd Generation Intel Core i7 Processors. ASUS 8-DIMM Design provides maximum performance and versatility of memory configuration.

    The TUF Series delivers preeminent stability, all-around compatibility, and extreme durability, providing the most reliable computing experience. Exclusive TUF features make this motherboard unique and innovative. ASUS implements cutting-edge thermal solutions with the new TUF Thermal Armor and TUF Thermal Radar to provide better air flow and thermal design to assure stable system operation, durability and longevity. The new TUF Thermal Armor improves air flow with an innovative vent design and integrated turbo fan on two focal points. TUF Thermal Radar is a unique solution that embeds 12 hardware sensors on the motherboard to provide real-time thermal detection with detailed information for every critical component, as well as fan speed and voltage monitor on-demand.

    In line with the entire X79 lineup, this TUF series motherboard still includes USB BIOS Flashback which enables BIOS flashback with one simple step, UEFI BIOS which simplifies platform settings for users with an EZ tuning mode, while offering advanced users an easy to use graphical interface that offers unparalleled performance enhancement options. Additionally, ASUS will introduce 2 more features in X79 platform DRAM SPD information & F3 shortcuts, further expanding friendly usability of UEFI BIOS. ASUS redesigned AI Suite II consolidates system functionality, tweaking and monitoring into one sleek and elegant software package designed with the user in mind.
