ASRock Fatal1ty Z77 Professional-M: 30 facts and highlights

1. RAM speed

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
1600MHz
ASRock Z270 Taichi: 21233MHz

2. overclocked RAM speed

The motherboard supports overclocking the RAM to a higher speed. By increasing the speed at which the memory runs, you can boost the performance of your computer.
2800MHz
ASRock X299 OC Formula: 4600MHz

3. Signal-to-Noise ratio (DAC)

When an audio chipset converts a digital audio signal to an analogue one (for example when playing an MP3 on your speakers), a certain amount of noise is added. A higher SNR means that there is less added noise and the audio quality is better.
110dB
Gigabyte G1.Sniper 5: 123dB

4. maximum memory size

The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.
32GB
Asus Z10PE-D16 WS: 1024GB

5. PCIe 3.0 x16 slots

PCIe slots allow you to connect peripherals to the motherboard, most commonly graphics cards but also others such as sound cards and network cards. The ‘x16’ represents the number of lanes it has, with more lanes supporting higher data transfer rates. PCIe 3.0 offers higher transfer rates than PCIe 2.0, and can give increased performance.

6. Supports RAID 1

RAID is a storage technology that combines multiple disks into one unit. RAID 1 mirrors the data across the drives. This gives you greater data security as if one drive fails, the data will still be accessible from another.

7. PCIe 2.0 x16 slots

PCIe slots allow you to connect peripherals to the motherboard, most commonly graphics cards but also others such as sound cards and network cards. The ‘x16’ represents the number of lanes it has, with more lanes supporting higher data transfer rates.

10. height

244mm
Asus Tinker Board: 53.3mm

11. Supports USB charging boost

This feature allows you to charge your devices (such as smartphones and tablets) faster than a regular USB port. Some implementations also let you charge through the USB port even when the computer is in sleep mode or off.

13. Supports RAID 5

RAID is a storage technology that combines multiple disks into one unit. RAID 5 stripes the data across the drives, giving increased performance compared to a single disk. It also provides greater data security as if one drive fails, the data will still be accessible from another due to the use of parity.

20. Supports RAID 10 (1+0)

RAID is a storage technology that combines multiple disks into one unit. RAID 10 (1+0) stripes and mirrors the data across the drives. It gives increased capacity and performance compared to a single disk. It also provides greater data security as if one drive fails, the data will still be accessible from another.
