Note

*1 Due to CPU limitation, AMD 7th Generation A-series/Athlon™ Processors support AMD® 2-Way CrossFireX™ Technology only.
The PCIEX8_2 slot shares bandwidth with M.2_2. SLI will not work if both slots are activated at the same time. Deactivate M.2_2 slot to run PCIEX8_2 at x8 and activate SLI.
*2 The PCIEX4_3 slot shares bandwidth with the PCIEX1_1, PCIEX1_2, PCIEX1_3 slots
*3 Support for the Bluetooth specification depends on the Windows version. Win7/8.1 support up to Bluetooth 4.0.
*4 Due to limitations in HDA bandwidth, 32-bit/192kHz is not supported for 8-Channel audio and due to Windows 7 limitations, 32-bit playback is unavailable for Windows 7.
*5 ROG GameFirst Technology is only available for Windows 10/8.1 64-bit
