ASUS's UEFI is very similar to that of their Intel ROG offerings. However, many of the settings are different because the platform is much different. ASUS still offers overclocking presets through DOCP, which is almost like AMD's version of XMP. I was able to use their built-in functions for overclocking.
Fan control in ASUS's UEFI is also top-notch, with a full GUI and manual input options as well as multiple temperature control options. ASUS's UEFI actually lets you pick two temperature sources for fan control, a new feature.
ASUS has also provided AMD's full backside settings so that you can tune pretty much every characteristic of the CPU under the AMD CBS menu.
ASUS's software suite is very extensive and includes Sonic Studio III, Sonic Radar III, AURA, GameFirst IV, RAM Cache II, KeyBot II, and DIP 5. Dual Intelligent Processors 5 (DIP5) includes many other software applications including TPU, Fan Xpert 4, DIGI+ Power Control, EPU, and Turbo APP just to name a few. ASUS's AMD software offerings are almost identical to that of their Intel offerings.
