  • BIOS FlashBack™
    Users can place a BIOS file onto a FAT32-formatted USB drive and simply plug it into the USB BIOS FlashBack™ port and press a button to update the (UEFI) BIOS. Updates can be made even if memory or CPU aren't present

ROG Gives You More

ROG-exclusive software utilities deliver intuitive audio tuning and gaming enhancements that allow you to configure your gaming build the way you want.

5 Way Optimization
Take care of complex tuning with just one click. ASUS 5-Way Optimization is a system-wide tuning utility that overclocks the processor and tunes fan speeds to ensure the best balance between cooling and acoustics. The automated CPU tuning feature of 5-Way Optimization leverages the same onboard intelligence as AI Overclocking, but goes further by running a Prime95-based stress test that continually monitors the system.

  • TPU Insight
  • EPU Guidance
  • Fan Xpert 4
  • DIGI+ Power Controls
  • Turbo App

AI Networking
The proprietary ROG GameFirst VI utility is designed to help all users — beginners, experts, and everyone in between — optimize network settings to ensure smooth online gameplay. New to this generation, GameFirst VI features AI-enhanced identification and boost technology to ensure faster and smarter network optimization.

How AI Networking Works

  1. Identification
    GameFirst VI analyzes your usage patterns and the digital signatures of your applications and compares them to a database of over 200,000 apps. The database is regularly updated to ensure that apps are recognized
  2. Boost
    GameFirst VI intelligently switches application priority and adjusts bandwidth accordingly, depending on the situation. When gaming, it accelerates and prioritizes game packets to give you supersmooth online gameplay — even when you're streaming high-quality video to your audience or transferring large files
  3. Visualization
    An intuitive graph gives you an overview of the network in real time. Simply click on the tab to view current bandwidth usage of each application, geolocation status of each network connection, and an analysis of each WiFi channel

Armoury Crate
Armoury Crate is a new software utility designed to give you centralized control of supported gaming products, making it easy to tune the look and feel of your system. From a single intuitive interface, Armoury Crate lets you easily customize RGB lighting and effects for compatible devices and synchronize them with Aura Sync to create a unified lighting scheme across your system.

You can also use Armoury Crate to download the user manual, drivers and software. In addition, Armoury Crate features a dedicated product registration page as well as a news feed to help you stay in touch with the gaming community.

RAMCache III
RAMCache lll software turns milliseconds into microseconds to boost game-load times. Fully compatible with the latest NVM Express® storage options, its uniquely intelligent technology effectively caches an entire storage device so that favorite games and apps launch at breakneck speeds.
