By adopting digital Pulse-width modulation
(PWM), the ASRock motherboard can provide
CPU Vcore voltage more efficiently and
smoothly.
Designed with a 8 + 2 Power Phase Design, this
motherboard features sturdy components and
completely smooth power delivery to the CPU.
Plus, it offers unmatched overclocking
capabilities and enhanced performance with the
lowest temperature for advanced gamers as well.

M.2 Socket (PCIe Gen2 x4 & SATA3)
Socket
The onboard M.2 socket is a new interface for
connecting Next Generation Form Factor (NGFF) solid
state drives or other devices. ASRock supports M.2
SATA3 6.0 Gb/s modules and M.2 PCI Express modules
up to Gen2 x4 20 Gb/s, which is 4X faster compared to
other M.2 Gen2 x1 solutions that are limited to 5 Gb/s. It
pushes your NGFF SSDs to their limits while reducing
tons of loading time and boosting overall performance.
