OC Design - ASUS PRO Clock technology

A dedicated base-clock (BCLK) generator designed for 6th-generation Intel® processors that allows overclocked base clock frequencies up to 400MHz*. This custom solution works in tandem with the ASUS Turbo Processor Unit (TPU), to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control — granting an exciting new way to boost performance to extreme heights.

  • Advantages of PRO Clock
    • Less boot up time
    • Lower jitter under extreme conditions.
    • More stable under heavy overclocking.
