ASUS Ai Overclock Tuner enables to use of memory profiles and manual adjustments to the CPU reference clock.
You can enable reference clock adjustments by either setting Ai Overclock Tuner to manual or selecting one of the memory profile options. The memory profile options depend on your platform and memory sticks. The profiles are largely based on AMD EXPO and Intel XMP technologies, though there are other variants.
- AEMP stands for ASUS Enhanced Memory Profiles and is an ASUS technology allowing for automatic memory overclocking when the DDR5 memory has no EXPO or XMP profile
- DOCP stands for Direct Over Clock Profile and is an ASUS technology that aims to replicate the Intel XMP feature we know from Intel platforms. It is usually available on AMD platforms that don’t have official XMP support
- EXPO stands for Extended Profiles for Overclocking and enables ubiquitous memory overclocking profiles for AMD platforms supporting DDR5 memory.
- XMP stands for Extreme Memory Profile and is an Intel technology that lets you automatically overclock the system memory to improve system performance.
Below you can find a list of memory profile options:
- AEMP I tightens the memory timings to improve memory latency
- AEMP II increases the memory operating frequency to improve the memory bandwidth
- D.O.C.P. loads an available XMP profile
- EXPO I loads only the EXPO profile primary timings, frequency, and voltage. The secondary timings are adjusted by the motherboard auto-rules
- EXPO II loads the complete EXPO profile, including the primary and secondary timings, the memory frequency, and the voltage.
- XMP I loads only the XMP profile primary timings, frequency, and voltage. The secondary timings are adjusted by the motherboard auto-rules
- XMP II loads the complete XMP profile, including the primary and secondary timings, the memory frequency, and the voltage.
- XMP Tweaked loads the complete XMP profile and makes further adjustments to various timings if possible
