ASUS Dual x16 SLI Graphics with A8N32-SLI Deluxe and P5N32-SLI Deluxe
With exclusive technologies - dual x16 PCI Express SLI graphics (a total of
32 PCI Express Lanes!), the 8-Phase Power design and fan-less cooling, the
recently unveiled ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe and P5N32-SLI Deluxe motherboards
deliver superior video performance, cool and quiet computing and stable and
efficient power supply.
True Dual x16 SLI - More performance now.
SLI-ready motherboards that come with two x8 PCI Express slots, two
full-bandwidth, 16-lane PCI Express links ensure maximum graphics performance
for next-generation GPUs and games. Compared with dual x8 SLI solutions, the
dual x16 platform delivers up to 10% efficiency improvement.
Current 3D games have just begun to experience the performance limitations of
current dual x8 SLI systems. The next generation games will present more
detailed and higher resolution textures that stress the necessity for even
higher graphics bandwidth.
8-Phase Power Design
With 8-Phase Power Design, power
modules operate at 15°C lower than conventional power solutions to provide a
cool computing environment. Lower temperature also results in lower fan speed
for peace and quiet and better stability for overclocking.
8-Phase Power Design reduces input ripple current and output ripple voltage,
keeping the CPU and power modules from high power stress to increase component
lifespan. Furthermore, it has the advantage of quick transient response. It acts
faster than 4-phase power designs to stabilize output current and voltage. This
is especially critical when the CPU requires immediate current support when
under heavy workload.
Fanless Design - Stack Cool 2 and Copper Heat Pipe
Fanless Design brings effective and noiseless cooling to counter the heat
generated by components. Watch movies, listen to music and play games, and enjoy
the peace and quiet. System damages from fan failure is also a thing of the
The copper Heat Pipe directs heat generated by the chipsets to the heatsink
near the back I/O ports, where it can be carried away by existing airflow, while
Stack Cool 2 effectively transfers heat generated by the critical components to
the other side of the specially designed PCB (printed circuit board) for fast
Optional fan bundle for water-cooling systems
optional fan is specifically designed to provide sufficient airflow over the CPU
power modules and chipset area when water-cooling and passive cooling are
utilized, ensuring effective heat dissipation for the entire system. Optional
fan is included in product package. Use only when water-cooling or passive CPU
cooler is installed.
A8N32-SLI Deluxe and Corsair XMS-3500LL PRO
XMS-3500LL PRO is the industry's first high-density memory that delivers blazing
performance at CL2-1T low latency. Available in a matched pair of 1GB modules,
it is shipped with SPD programmed at 2-3-2-6-1T for the AMD platform. The
A8N32-SLI Deluxe and the memory are optimized for each other to reach maximum
performance, and are validated for stability and compatibility.
DIMM modules are not included in ASUS motherboard package
Four models are currently available:
