Asus KGPE-D16 compatibility review

The Asus KGPE-D16 uses the AMD Socket G34 CPU socket. Any compatible AMD CPU will have the same socket entry.

The SSI-EEB Asus KGPE-D16 uses a less common standard than the traditional ATX you most often see. As such, you should be wary of its compatibility with other cases, as well as the compatibility of PSUs with the case you choose.

The Asus KGPE-D16 has 6 SATA 3.0 hard drive slots. These allow for theoretical data transfer speeds of up to 6GB/s, as opposed to the 3GB/s of SATA 2.0. Generally speaking, only high performance hard drives, specifically solid-state drives, will be able to take advantage of the bandwidth potential of SATA 3.0 ports, though it is backwards compatible, so you do not have to take advantage. This motherboard also has 6 SATA 2.0 slots, so numerous SATA hard drives can be connected if desired.

The Asus KGPE-D16 supports onboard graphics. This allows for integrated graphics when paired with a compatible CPU that supports them. Integrated graphics are a cheap alternative to using a graphics card, but should be avoided when frequently using modern applications or games that require intense graphical processing. There are 2 PCIe x16 slots on this motherboard. This means it is perfectly capable of accommodating the latest graphics cards, although it is important to try and use a graphics card with the same graphics card interface of PCIe v2.x, as anything below will not reach the motherboard's potential, and anything above will have its performance slashed to the bandwidth maximum of the Asus KGPE-D16's PCIe v2.x. The Asus KGPE-D16 supports up to 3 Nvidia SLI connected graphics cards or up to 3 AMD Crossfire connected graphics cards for improved overall graphical performance at the cost of multiplied graphics-based power consumption as well as the price of the cards themselves.

The Asus KGPE-D16 has 6 USB 2.0 slots but no USB 3.0 slots. While USB 3.0 slots are so far by no means necessary, and with a plethora of USB 2.0 peripherals to choose from, the USB functionality on this motherboard should be fine. If planning on building a new system, a motherboard with USB 3.0 is likely to have a longer life cycle, however.
