H97-PRO GAMER confounds expectations. It's an ATX motherboard that packs loads of innovative gaming technologies into a package accessible to everyone. From Hi-Fi-quality audio technology to blazing-fast networking, advanced integrated graphics, and faster gaming with M.2 & SATA Express, every aspect of H97-PRO GAMER is designed to help you to speed up your fun. Precision-engineered components, hand-chosen for the fun gaming experience, are protected by exclusive ASUS Gamer's Guardian for exceptional reliability and longevity. With an arresting red-and-black theme H97-Pro Gamer steals attention. It is built for your game— H97-PRO GAMER!
The difference between defeat and victory can be measured in milliseconds. That's why we've equipped H97-PRO GAMER with networking technology that puts your frags first!
The very latest Intel® Gigabit Ethernet means faster, smoother gaming — always. Intel's LAN has the serious double advantage of communicating directly with Intel CPUs and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput. This significantly reduces the processor's workload, so there's more power for your game and your gameplay!
ASUS engineers used IxChariot, an independent network-assessment test tool, to determine just how much quicker Intel Gigabit Ethernet deals with the UDP data packets that are vital for responsive gaming. The results are in — and with H97-PRO GAMER your game-data packets flow up to two times (2X) faster!
GameFirst II with cFosSpeed traffic-shaping technology adds even more lag-reducing support, with an EZ Mode that lets you lower lag with no expert knowledge – by up to eight times (8X)! If you're a tweaker, use Advanced Mode for hardcore controls.
Greatly reduce latency, even during heavy downloading and uploading
ASUS H97-PRO GAMER explodes the myth that dedicated sound cards are always better, with integrated SupremeFX technology that achieves near-lossless audio quality with a remarkable signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 115dB — meaning you hear every sound detail. And with exclusive Sonic Radar technology pinpointing the precise direction of in-game sounds you even get a leg up in the game!
SupremeFX is an exclusive ASUS technology that's designed for one purpose — to deliver audio that's in a class of its own.
Horizontally separates SupremeFX audio components from the rest of the motherboard, effectively eliminating interference to ensure flawless sound quality
H97-PRO GAMER drives some of the very best headphones available — up to 300Ω load impedance. H97-PRO GAMER assures you great compatibility and more impactful output than standard onboard audio hardware. You demand superb effects and superior surround sound for truly immersive gaming experiences, and H97-PRO GAMER delivers!
A carefully-engineered protective shield isolates the advanced audio chipset from electromagnetic interference (EMI), preserving the integrity of the audio signals.
Added to the mix to deliver a warmer, natural sound to complete the audio experience.
Designed for first-person shooters (FPS), Sonic Radar II displays a stealthy overlay that shows what opponents and teammates are up to. See the precise direction and origin of in-game sounds such as gunshots, footsteps and call-outs, and practice your enemy-pinpointing skills — and exclusive Audio Enhancement further improves in-game sound for superb hearing awareness. The all-new Sonic Radar II includes a redesigned control panel with customizable game list!
Every part of your PC contributes to gaming speed and with both M.2 and SATA Express connectivity on board, H97-PRO GAMER drives data transfers at lightning speed — and that means faster gaming fun for you!
SATA Express provides up to 10Gbit/s data-transfer speeds from two PCI Express 2.0 lanes, so you're all set for the next generation of super-fast SSDs. Existing SSDs consume up to 550MB/s of bandwidth, which is close to the saturation point for SATA 6Gbit/s connections — but H97-PRO GAMER's SATA Express interface smashes this through this speed barrier. Backwardly compatible with up to two SATA drives, SATA Express is the next-generation connectivity standard that ensures you and your game won't get left behind.
H97-PRO GAMER includes an M.2 socket with two native PCI Express 2.0 lanes for data-transfer speeds of up to 10 Gbit/s. This is the perfect choice for an operating system drive to make every gaming experience faster and more fun. H97-PRO GAMER also supports Intel® Rapid Storage Technology to ensure even faster access to data, refresh applications automatically and awake from sleep in just seconds!*
*Refer to model specifications for Intel® Rapid Storage Technology support.
While you protect your back in the game, H97-PRO GAMER protects all sides in the real world. Great motherboard design is all in the detail, which is why ASUS engineers kitted out H97-PRO GAMER with loads of brilliant protective features. Individually they're tough, together they're unstoppable.
Crafted from chromium-plated, corrosion-resistant stainless steel, H97-PRO GAMER's input/output (I/O) panel is super-strong — and last up to three times (3X) longer than ordinary panels!
H97-PRO GAMER DIGI+ VRM voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, ensuring ultra-smooth and ultra-clean power delivery to the CPU at all times!
H97-PRO GAMER's connection ports and DRAM are protected against overcurrent and short-circuit damage by onboard resettable fuses, extending your motherboard's life.
Exceptionally high-quality Japanese-made (Nichicon GT series) solid-state capacitors offer 20%-greater temperature endurance and lifespans that are up to five times (5X) longer that generic equivalents.
