ASUS rolls out motherboards that the company touts has set a new standard in total motherboard protection. The ASUS Protect 3.0 designed motherboards based on Xtreme Design helps to protect the earth, the PC and its users as it is equipped with intelligent anti-radiation shielding.

The Protect 3.0 technology lowers the generation and transmission of harmful radiation by up to 50%—offering the lowest electromagnetic emissions from a motherboard in the industry. This lowers the adverse health impact to users and delivers more stable system operations. Additionally, active anti-surge protection helps enhance component and system longevity. Protect 3.0 also includes the ASUS EPU (Energy Processing Unit) chip to reduce system-wide power consumption by up to 80.23% and to ensure a more environmentally sustainable operation.

About the launch of these latest motherboards, Vinay Shetty, country head, component business, ASUS (India) said, "The ASUS Protect 3.0 designed motherboards are a radical step in the conceptualizing, development and production of motherboards. After making some of the best motherboards in the world today, we needed to come up with something that went beyond the traditional realms of what people think a good motherboard should be. With unique benefits like lower radiation levels, lower power consumption and increased system stability due to Anti-Surge technology these motherboards are designed to not only benefit the PC that they are installed in but also its user and the environment. These are the first motherboards in the world that actually protect you, your PC and the earth."

Significant elimination of harmful electromagnetic rays with low radiation design
On an average, users are exposed to about eight hours of electromagnetic radiation daily from computer usage. Protect 3.0 effectively reduces this radiation exposure by up to 50%—achieving the lowest radiation emission levels in the industry. This technology is able to meet more stringent radiation limits by employing intelligent design features including the use of low-radiation components to minimise radiation generated. Additionally, a low radiation circuit design reduces the radiation produced by electrical components by intelligently positioning oppositely-charged electrical flows across each other to cancel out the fields generated. Finally, a radiation moat design effectively eliminates radiation leakage to surrounding components by confining it to a small region around the active area.

Enhanced component and system longevity with anti-surge design
With its anti-surge design, Protect 3.0 detects under or over voltage conditions in components and prevents electrical surges from spreading. Whenever surges occur especially during a thunderstorm or periods of unstable grid power delivery, anti-surge will immediately shut off the electrical supply and prevent potential component damage—thus enhancing total system longevity.

Increased efficiency and eco-friendly operations with EPU energy saving design
For enhanced efficiency and more earth-friendly operations, Protect 3.0 includes the ASUS EPU (Energy Processing Unit), an energy-saving chip that intelligently reduces power consumption by up to 80.23%. EPU automatically fine-tunes the power channelled to components such as the CPU in real time for superb efficiency. To further reduce energy consumption, EPU also automatically delivers the most appropriate power via intelligent acceleration and overclocking. Such enhanced efficiency results in less CO2 released to the atmosphere from lower power generation.
