With the release of their new Intel X79 motherboards, ASUS shows the overclocking community that it leads the way in terms of memory speed. The ASUS P9X79 DELUXE is the first X79 board to be certified with Intel's XMP or Extreme Memory Profile technology, which allows the motherboard to support 2400MHz DDR3 memory. This speed was reached with Kingston HyperX quad-channel memory modules. 

Other members of ASUS' X79 family have reached even greater speeds. The ASUS ROG Rampage IV Extreme holds the RAM speed record of 2700MHz, which was achieved with a setup that involved 16GB of G.Skill Ripjaws Z DDR3-2400 (4GB x4) at 1.65V. Both the P9X79 DELUXE and the ROG Rampage IV Extreme have 8-DIMM design that can support up to 64GB of quad-channel DDR3 memory.

ASUS X79 motherboards will be available in the Philippines this month. Below are the prices:

ASUS Rampage IV Extreme/BF3 - PhP 25,990
