ASUS Launches TUF Sabertooth 990FX AMD Motherboard


ASUS today announced the TUF Series SABERTOOTH 990FX/GEN3 R2.0, the first AMD-based motherboard to feature PCI Express 3.0.

Through PCI Express 3.0, up to three DirectX 11 graphics cards can be used via NVIDIA SLI or AMD CrossFireX to create desktop PCs with formidable graphics performance.

SABERTOOTH 990FX/GEN3 R2.0 also features ASUS TUF Series thermal design, TUF-certified alloy chokes, solid state capacitors and MOSFETs. Both the Northbridge and Southbridge use dual-heatpipe heatsinks with CeraM!X micro-ridged coating that increases the effective heat dissipation surface area by around 50%, according to Asus. In addition, four DIMM slots support up to 32GB DDR3 memory at frequencies up to 2400 MHz, aided by an eight-layered PCB that promotes faster memory performance.



SABERTOOTH 990FX/GEN3 R2.0 also features TUF Thermal Radar, which uses multiple heat sensors across the motherboard for real time temperature monitoring. Independent and automatic fan speed control then allows components to be cooled individually.

The ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX/GEN3 R2.0 motherboard will be available in the middle of March and it is backed by a five-year warranty.
