Feel the Power of AMD Athlon 64 FX Processor


With an array of advanced technology and AMD64 architecture, the SK8V provides an incredible K8 performance. Supporting a dual-channel DDR400 memory architecture, scalable HyperTranspor, IEEE1394 high speed connection, S/PDIF digital audio, Dual SATA RAID, AI NET, AI BIOS and more, the SK8V is a definitely rich in features and robust in performance.

AMD Athlon 64 FX Processor
The AMD Athlon 64 FX and Opteron 100 Series processor are based on AMD64 technology, which represents the landmark introduction of the industry's first x86-64 technology. This next-generation processor provides a dramatic leap forward in compatibility, performance, investment protection, and reduced total cost of ownership and development.

VIA K8T800
The VIA K8T800 chipset is powering next generation 64-bit compatible platforms based around the new AMD Athlon 64 processors. The K8T800 combined with the VIA VT8237 South Bridge enables an unparalleled range of cutting edge I/O and multimedia features, including an HyperTransport Bus Link, AGP 8X, native Serial ATA/RAID.

HyperTransport
HyperTransport technology is a high-speed, low latency, point-to-point link designed to increase the communication speed between integrated circuits in computers, servers, embedded systems, and networking and telecommunications equipment up to 48 times faster than some existing technologies.

ASUS Wi-Fi slot
The Wi-Fi 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. The Wi-Fi slot supports the 802.11g standard for future upgrades. (Note: The WiFi-b™ card with software AP has to be purchased separately)

Dual SATA RAID
The Promise 20378 RAID controller incorporated two Serial ATA and one parallel connectors with RAID 0, RAID 1 and RAID 0+1 functions while the VT8237 RAID controller provides another two Serial ATA connectors for RAID 0 and RAID 1 functions. The K8V is the ideal solution to enhance hard disk performance and data backup protection without the cost of add-on cards.

AI NET
The AI Series supports Gigabit LAN by integrating the 3COM 3C940 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.

AI BIOS
ASUS POST Reporter
During the computer POST (Power On Self-Test), ASUS POST Reporter provides friendly voice warnings through external speaker, clearly explaining system errors for quick and easy optimization. The bundled Winbond Voice Editor software allows users to add customized system voice warnings and multi-language support.
Q-Fan
ASUS Q-Fan technology intelligently adjusts fan speeds according to system loading to ensure quiet, cool and efficient operation.
ASUS CrashFree BIOS2
The CrashFree BIOS 2 feature now includes the BIOS auto-recovery function in a support CD. Users can reboot their system through the support CD when a bootable disk is not available, and go through the simple BIOS auto-recovery process.
ASUS motherboards now enable users to enjoy this protection feature without the need to pay for an optional ROM.

AI AUDIO (6-channel digital audio)
AI series motherboards employed the world's first intelligent audio CODEC. The 6-channel AD1985 audio CODEC automatically detects and identifies what types of peripherals are plugged into the audio I/O jacks and notifies users of inappropriate connection, meaning there will be no more confusion of Line-in, Line-out and Mic jacks.

IEEE 1394 interface
IEEE 1394 interface provides high speed digital interface for audio / video appliances such as digital television, digital video camcorders, storage peripherals & other PC portable devices.

Instant music
Through this unigure feature, ASUS motherboard are conveniently designed to allow users to enjoy their favorite music, without the need to enter Windows.

Multi-language BIOS
ASUS provides friendly localized BIOS setup menu to help you configure your system as easy as possible.

ASUS MyLogo2
You can convert your favorite photo into a 256-color boot logo for a more colorful and vivid image on your screen.

C.P.R.(CPU Parameter Recall)
When the system hangs due to overclocking failure, there is no need to open the case to clear CMOS data. Simply restart the system and the BIOS will automatically restore the CPU default setting for each parameter.

ASUS EZ Flash
With ASUS EZ Flash, you can update BIOS before entering operating system. No more DOS-based flash utility and bootable diskette required.

S/PDIF-out Port on back I/O (on audio model only)
The K8V's S/PDIF out function turns your computer into a high-end entertainment system with digital connectivity to powerful speaker systems.

6 Channel Audio
The K8V Deluxe uses an onboard Audio CODEC that lets you enjoy high-quality 6-channel audio without having to buy advanced sound cards.

USB 2.0 Ready
USB 2.0 is the latest connectivity standard for next generation components and peripherals. Backward 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
