This feature is implemented owing to support for the digital content protection technology, which lets certified iintel players channel the audio stream to a graphics card with HDMI or any other expansion card without quality losses.

Besides, the advanced BIOS mode is enabled by an on-board jumper. Thank you for your feedback.

Look with the video card manufacture if they can a new firmware updated you can try. This discussion is locked. Speaking of motherboard design, long meditation over the published photo works better than words here.

This service was discontinued in October On the other hand, a top motherboard simply must maintain a certain level even if a purely populist oneor it risks disappointing potential users and, consequently, sale drops.

SATA Serial Advanced Technology Attachment is a high speed standard for connecting storage devices such as hard disk drives and optical drives to a motherboard. What concerns bundled utilities, we can mention only Desktop Control Center, which is responsible for system monitoring, detailed information on CPU and memory, as well as control of voltages, fan speed, and on-the-fly overclocking.
