The World's First Motherboards with ASUS
- Intelligent Audio-Sensing Technology
Intelligent Net-Diagnosing Utility
CPU Frequency Tuner
Auto-Recovery BIOS and More
To create a user-friendly interface, ASUS
introduced the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Series.
These motherboards include automatic and intelligent
features for Gbit LAN, 6-channel audio, BIOS recovery
technology and more.
The Ideal Audio Solution--8-Channel
Audio Enhances ASUS 865PE Series
on the high-speed P4P800-E, this Deluxe edition throws
in an rich-array of features such as IEEE 1394 connectivity,
Multi-RAID technology and POST Reporter. Let’s not forget
support for industry-leading specs such as the Intel
865PE chipset, ASUS unique Hyper Path technology, 8-channel
audio, Serial ATA and Gigabit LAN.
ASUS Hyper Path Technology
ASUS Hyper Path, a unique technology for the ASUS P4P800
series, optimizes the true potential of the Intel 865PE
chipset to deliver the highest performance amongst competing
856PE-based solutions. All P4P800 Series PCB and BIOS
versions support Hyper Path.
Intel 865 PE chipset
Leveraging the Intel 865PE chipset to support 3.2 GHz+
P4 CPU on 800MHz FSB, Dual DDR 400 memory, Intel Hyper-Threading
Technology, and a full-range of advanced features, P4P800-E
really delivers a full-value, high-performance solution
for today's most demanding tasks.
Dual-channel DDR technology doubles
the bandwidth of your system memory and hence boost
the system performance to out perform any memory existing
solutions in the market. System bottlenecks are eliminated
with balanced architecture and peak bandwidths up to
AI Audio via 8-Channel CODEC
The ALC850 CODEC has eight channels of 16-Bit DAC, a
stereo 16-Bit ADC, and an AC97 2.3 compatible multi-channel
audio designed for PC multimedia systems. It also automatically
detects and identifies what types of peripherals are
plugged into the audio I/O jacks and notifies users
of inappropriate connection. No more confusion of Line-in,
Line-out and Mic jacks.
The AI Series supports Gigabit LAN by integrating the
Marvell 88E8001 controller, equipped with a unique net-diagnosing
utility-- VCT (Virtual Cable Tester). The controller
intelligently detects net connection status up to 100
meters from a remote location and reports the distance
of bad cable.
CrashFree BIOS 2~
Whenever BIOS gets corrupted, ASUS CrashFree BIOS 2
allows users to reboot the computer and perform an smart
auto-recovery procedure through the motherboard support
This unique technology intelligently and automatically
adjusts CPU fan speeds according to system load and
temperature, enabling users to work in a distraction-free
environment with minimal noise.
ASUS POST Reporter~
A voice warning design during POST notifies users of
any system errors, which means no more complicated LED
The unique AI Overclocking Tuner in BIOS enables quick
overclocking up to 30% (depends on CPU and RAM). It automatically
detects and optimizes every relevant parameter to provide
both performance and stability.
The BIOS in AI Series also keeps all the special design
-- Flexible CPU Core Voltage Adjustments in 0.025V increments
-- SFS (Stepless Frequency Selection) up to 400MHz at
-- Adjustable FSB/DDR ratio. Fixed AGP/PCI frequencies
-- ASUS C.P.R.(CPU Parameter Recall)
slot is specifically designed for the ASUS Wireless
LAN add-on card (ex. WiFi-b™) to set up an environment
for home Wireless LAN. The ASUS WiFi-b™ add-on card bundles
the exclusive Software AP (Access Point) to save the extra
cost of an hardware AP. In addition, the card comes with
user-friendly utilities and applications that allow quick
connection to notebooks, PDAs and other WLAN peripherals.
slot supports the 802.11g standard for future upgrades.
(Note: The WiFi-b™ card
with software AP has to be purchased separately)
Deluxe offers the most complete RAID solution. A Promise
RAID controller offers RAID 0, 1 and 0+1 functions with
Max. 2 UltraATA 133 ports and 2 SATA HD ports, enabling
users to build a RAID array with any 2, 3 or 4 of the
ports. With unique multi-RAID function, RAID 0 and RAID
1 array can co-exist.
IEEE 1394 interface
interface provides high speed digital interface for
audio / video appliances such as digital television,
digital video camcorders, storage peripherals &
other PC portable devices.
S/PDIF-out on Back I/O Port
ASUS P4P800-E Deluxe provides convenient connectivity
to external home theater audio systems via an optical
or coaxial S/PDIF-out (SONY-PHILIPS Digital Interface)
jack. It allows to transfer digital audio without converting
to analog format and keeps the best signal quality.
AGP8X (AGP 3.0) is the next generation VGA interface
specification that enables enhanced
graphics performance with high bandwidth up to 2.12GB/s.
ICH5R with Integrated SATA and RAID 0
Intel is the world's first chipset maker to integrate
Serial ATA (SATA) and RAID 0, 1 functions into the South
Bridge. The latest ICH5R chipset now delivers 150MB/s
fast data transfer (SATA) and striping performance to
enhance computing efficiency.
Max. 8 USB 2.0 ports supports
USB 2.0 is the latest connectivity standard for next
generation components and peripherals. Backwards compatible
with current USB 1.1 peripherals, USB 2.0 delivers transfer
speeds up to 40 times faster at 480Mb/s, for easy connectivity
and ultra-fast data transfers.
