Note

*1 DisplayPort1.2 supports HDCP2.2 and HDR. HDMI 1.4 supports HDCP2.2.


*2 The PCIe x4_3 slot shares bandwidth with PCIex1_3. The PCIe x4_3 is default set at x2 mode.

*3 When the M.2_1 Socket 3 is operating in SATA mode, SATA port 1 will be disabled.

*4 When the M.2_2 Socket 3 is operating in PCIe 3.0 x4 mode, SATA ports 5 and 6 will be disabled.

*5 This function will work depending on the CPU installed.

*6 Due to limitations in HDA bandwidth, 32-bit/192kHz is not supported for 8-Channel audio
