TPU - Turbo Processing Unit
TPU stands for Turbo Processing Unit, and is responsible the amalgamation of user-friendly overclocking and unlocking features present on ASUS’ recent ROG series motherboards.
Auto Tuning is an intelligent tool that automates overclocking to achieve a total system level up. This tool also provides stability testing. Even beginners can achieve an extreme yet stable overclock.
GPU Boost overclocks the integrated GPU in real time for the best graphics performance. A user-friendly interface offers flexible frequency and voltage adjustments. Its ability to deliver multiple overclocking profiles also provides rapid and stable system-level upgrades.
Turbo Key II
Turbo Key II allows you to overclock your processor to an extreme yet stable state at the flick of a switch, literally. There is a dedicated switch on the motherboard to activate the feature.
ASUS Core Unlocker simplifies AMD CPU core unlocking on capable CPU’s by having a dedicated onboard switch, just like Turbo Key II. Enjoy an instant performance boost by simply unlocking the extra cores, without even entering the BIOS.
CPU Level UP
CPU Level UP! is basically a free processor upgrade for systems running at stock speeds. Simply pick the processor you want to OC to, for example overclocking an i7 920 to i7 940 speeds, and the motherboard will do the rest, applying the settings instantly.
This is already explained on page 2, but as part of the TPU it’s worthy of a mention here too.
Turbo unlocker has to be one of the most interesting aspects controlled by the TPU. All it takes is one click in the TurboV EVO interface and Turbo Unlocker automatically and dynamically adjusts each core frequency to speed up performance based on actual system load.
Turbo Unlocker gives you more performance exactly when you need it, adaptively overclocking the individual cores to boost performance in single threaded, multi threaded (2 or more threads) and highly threaded (using all available cores) applications.
