Quad-Core APU
Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) is the unique
combination of CPU and GPU computing
technologies. The onboard A4-5000 can provide
up to 40% more power efficient than AMD’s
previous generation Brazos APU motherboards. It
not only provides excellent computing capability
with its four cores, but also vastly improves today's
Internet, video processing, playback, and gaming

FAN-Tastic Tuning
Configure different fan speeds for respective
temperatures using the graph. The fans will
automatically shift to the next speed level when
the assigned temperature is met.
Just plug in the USB Key and let your computer log
in to windows automatically without having to type
your username and password!
UEFI Tech Service
Contact ASRock Tech Service by sending a support
request form from the UEFI setup utility if you are
having trouble with your PC.
Users may prevent motherboard damages due to
dampness by enabling “Dehumidifier Function”.
When enabling Dehumidifier Function, the
computer will power on automatically to dehumidify
the system after entering S4/S5 state.
Easy Driver Installer
For users that don’t have an optical disk drive
to install the drivers from our support CD, Easy
Driver Installer is a handy tool in the UEFI that
installs the LAN driver to your system via an USB
storage device, then downloads and installs the
other required drivers automatically.
ASRock OMG technology allows you to establish
an internet curfew or restrict internet access at
specified times. Administrators are able to schedule
the starting and ending hours of internet access
granted to other users.
Fully Optimize Memory Usage
XFast RAM creates a virtual disk from the system
memory to fully utilize the memory space. Shortening the loading time of visited websites and
boosting the speed of applications such as Adobe
Photoshop 5 times faster!
* Lower is better
Faster Internet Access
ASRock XFast LAN provides faster internet
access with LAN application prioritization, so
that users may lower the latency in games or
watch Youtube videos and download
