Compared to the P8P67 PRO, some components may have moved about printed circuit board (PCB) and a few more were added, but the expansion slots offered and connector placements are unchanged.

The Firewire and Super I/O controllers are now placed near the front of the board. The MOSFET heatsinks for the processor’s voltage regulation module (VRM) have been slightly re-designed as well.

The EPU is a real-time power saving and monitoring chip that can detect workloads and intelligently moderate power consumption, while the TPU will overclock the system for you by raising the BCLK and processor multiplier automatically.

Memory power supply is regulated via a 2-phase VRM. There are two pairs of DIMM slots for dual-channel memory configuration.

Power is fed to the processor through a 12+4 phase VRM design. ASUS uses what they call the DIGI+ VRM, which provides better precision and more control. Users can adjust load-line calibration for both the processor core and the integrated graphics portion, change VRM frequency and control the number of working phases through the BIOS.
