PCIe 2.0
Double Speed; Double Bandwidth
This motherboard supports the latest PCIe 2.0 devices for double speed and bandwidth which enhances system performance.

NVIDIA nForce®780a SLI™ Chipset
The NVIDIA nForce®780a SLI™ chipset supports the NVIDIA® Scalable Link Interface (SLI™) technology that allows three graphics processing units (GPUs) in a single system. It's designed for enthusiast, extreme overclocking capability, ultimate gaming performance with SLI technology support. It's definitely one of the fastest platform in the world. The NVIDIA nForce®780a SLI™ chipset also supports six (6) Serial ATA 3 Gb/s devices, PCI Express™ x16 slots with NVIDIA® SLI™ support at dual x16 mode or at tripple x8 mode, and up to 10 USB 2.0 ports.

Native DDR2 1066 Support
This motherboard is the AMD® platform with native DDR2 1066 support. It provides faster data transfer rate and more bandwidth to increase memory data transfer rate and computing efficiency, enhancing system performance in 3D graphics and other memory demanding applications. *DDR2 1066 is supported by some of the AM2+ CPUs only.

Hybrid SLI™
GeForce® Boost
- Boosted Performance with Onboard GPU and Discrete Graphics Card

- Intelligent Graphics Power-Savings and Quiet Operations
Hybrid SLI™ technology is a unique hybrid multi-GPU technology. It includes two primary features: GeForce Boost and HybridPower™. GeForce Boost turbo-charges performance of discrete graphics cards when combined with the motherboard GPUs. HybridPower™ unleashes graphics performance for demanding 3D applications and enables low-power operation for everyday computing needs.
- GeForce® Boost and HybridPower™ are independent on select GeForce GPUs.

3-Way SLI Provides Scalable Performance
NVIDIA 3-Way SLI™ (Scalable Link Interface) makes use of the PCI Express 2.0 bus architecture's increased bandwidth and features intelligent hardware and software that allows three GPUs to efficiently work together to deliver earth-shattering, scalable performance. For some applications, this translates into nearly triple the performance!
