The board will have Asus Super Hybrid Engine (S.H.E). This is actually a combination of Asus Turbo-V Extreme overclocking solution and the already known money and energy saving EPU-system level power saving solution.
The Extreme Overclocking design will consist out of: Turbo-V
Turbo-V is a software solution that will allow you to overclock real time and allow you to even change the multiplier trough Windows on unlocked processors.
It will also control the voltage of the mainboard. The Cpu PLL, Dram, Chipset and NB-PCIe voltage in very accurate steps of 0.02 Volt. Oc palm
The OC Palm is a USB device, looks a bit like a GPS system that will also allow you to overclock real time. This can be useful for example in 3DMark 06, where during the CPU test frequency could be lowered a bit and raised during the less cpu taxing tests. A few extra buttons will allow you to program profiles that can be with one click activated.
