Go Faster with PRO Clock technology
A dedicated base-clock (BCLK) generator designed for 6th-generation Intel® processors that extends overclocked base clock frequencies up to 400MHz*. This custom solution works in tandem with the ASUS TurboV Processing Unit (TPU), to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control — providing an exciting new way to boost performance to extreme heights.
Advantages of ASUS Pro Clock：
Reduced boot up time
Lower jitter under extreme conditions for higher overclocks
Increased stability under heavy overclocking
* BCLK overclocking range will vary according to CPU capabilities, cooling, motherboard support and tuning options.
DDR4 overclocking strength in numbers
Second-generation ASUS T-Topology enables DDR4 memory overclocking to reach new heights: over DDR4-3400MHz with all memory slots populated. Featuring a customized trace layout for reduced crosstalk and coupling noise, our second-generation T-Topology ensures time-aligned signal transfer for improved memory stability and compatibility.
One-stop performance-optimization panel
AI Suite 3 is an exclusive ASUS dashboard-style control panel that lets you fine-tune almost every aspect of your Z170 Pro Gaming-based system for the best balance between performance, stability, efficiency and aesthetics — all via a simple and intuitive interface.
