Speaking on the inclusion of these two unique tools, Joe Hsieh, General Manager of Motherboard Business with ASUS, said: "ASUS will never stop developing the friendliest and most performance-boosting features available to consumers, whether enthusiasts, beginners or anyone else. Both Core Unlocker and Turbo Unlocker realize CPU potential, making them ideal for users looking for the best value on the best performance motherboards around."

Real Time Core Boost on All Phenom II Black Edition and Six-Core CPUs
ASUS Turbo Unlocker technology represents the next evolution in performance tuning for the AMD Phenom II Black Edition and Six-Core processors. Only a one-click input within the exclusive ASUS TurboV Evo software is required to attain even more computing power as Turbo Unlocker* intelligently adjusts CPU core clock speeds based on application workload. When running optimized single-core applications, Turbo Unlocker dynamically adjusts clock speed on a single processor core to ensure maximum performance. For multi-threaded applications, all processor core speeds are dynamically increased to attain the highest performance available. Performance enhancements via Turbo Unlocker occur instantly based on actual system conditions, so system operation is always safe, reliable, and stable.

ASUS ROG Crosshair IV Formula
ASUS is the Best AMD Choice for the Gamer, Enthusiast, or Overclocker
Both new 890FX solutions, the ROG Crosshair IV Formula and the M4A89TD PRO offer unrivaled flexibility and system performance. The ROG Crosshair IV Formula offers the best overclocking and gaming experience with dedicated hardware, software, and BIOS design for the hard-core enthusiast or serious gamer while the M4A89TD PRO features an affordable high performance platform intended for the computing enthusiast. For users looking for the next level in performance ASUS has refined our award winning TurboV Evo auto-tuning hardware and software implementation to easily provide enhanced system performance while ensuring stability and reliability.

ASUS M4A89TD PRO
Unrivalled CPU Unlocking Leadership
ASUS is proud to continue its award winning Core Unlocking innovation first introduced in AMD’s 700 series chipsets. ASUS’ unique hardware based unlocking technology remains the most reliable and successful way to unlock additional cores for performance improvements on motherboards using the AMD 800-series chipset. Now unlocking is easier, quicker, and more reliable than competing solutions. By pressing one key at system startup, ASUS Core Unlocker* then intelligently scans the supported CPU for functional cores and cache and automatically implements the safest yet highest performing setting without further user intervention.

Next Generation Connectivity
The ROG Crosshair IV Formula and the upcoming M4A89TD PRO/USB3 feature next generation technologies like native SATA 6Gb/s performance along with USB 3.0 connectivity. These super-fast connections bring users into the HD era with the speed and reliability needed to handle large file transfers quickly. Both motherboards feature two USB 3.0 ports, transferring data at up to ten times the speed of USB 2.0. SATA 6Gb/s offers twice the throughput of its predecessor ensuring the best performance possible from cutting edge Solid-State drives (SSD).
* Core unlocking and Turbo Unlocker results may vary with the CPU utilized and system conditions.
