Introduction

Harness the performance of AMD Athlon MP processors with the A7M266-D. This dual-CPU ATX motherboard uses a standard power supply and supports up to 3.5GB of registered DDR memory or 2GB of un-buffered DDR memory to provide a scalable, high-performance platform for high-end desktops, workstations and entry-level servers. Additional features such as two high-speed 64-bit PCI slots, USB 2.0 support, and 6-channel onboard audio and extreme overclocking, make the A7M266-D an ideal platform with balanced value and performance for all your computing needs.

Dual Processor Support

The A7M266-D leverages the technology of the AMD 760MPX chipset to take advantage of the enhanced performance of dual Athlon MP processors. The A7M266-D supports up to two Athlon MP processors, or one Athlon MP / Athlon XP / Athlon / Duron socket A processor.

Flexible DDR Memory Support

The A7M266-D supports up to 3.5GB (4 DIMMs) of registered DDR SDRAM or 2GB (2 DIMMs) of un-buffered DDR SDRAM. Registered DDR SDRAM provides increased data integrity and reliability necessary for server applications, while un-buffered DDR SDRAM delivers cost-effective performance adequate for most regular system applications. The A7M266-D's flexible DDR memory support enables versatile functionality across a range of systems from high-performance desktops, workstations, and entry-level servers.

PCI 64-bit 66-MHz PCI Slots

Two PCI 64-bit 66-MHz slots deliver up to four times more bandwidth than conventional 32-bit PCI slots, and are optimized for server or workstation functions. 64-bit PCI slots are backwards compatible and also support 32-bit PCI cards or peripherals.

CPU Thermal Protection

The A7M266-D incorporates special features to protect the condition of your valuable CPU. A CPU throttling feature is enabled in the BIOS, which automatically lowers the CPU frequency to a safe speed if excessive temperatures are detected during operation. Additionally, ASUS COP (CPU Overheating Protection) is a hardware protection circuit that automatically shuts down the system power before temperatures go high enough to permanently damage your CPU.

Support ASUS iPanel

Support the ASUS iPanel to provide easy connectivity and one-touch management of various peripherals and system status.

ATX Form-factor and Minimum 400W ATX 2.03 Power Supply

The minimum requirement for full-power loading is a 400 Watt ATX 12V power supply; minimum requirement for +5V/3.3V is 180 Watts; +12 Volts requires 15 Amps; 5VSB requires 1 Amp. Also Ensure that the ATX power supply can put out at least 10mA on the +5 Volt standby lead (+5vsb). You may experience difficulty powering ON the system if the power supply cannot support the load. For Wake-On-LAN support, your ATX power supply must supply at least 720mA for +5VSB.

6-Channel Audio

The A7M266-D uses an onboard C-Media 8738 audio controller that lets you enjoy high-quality 6-channel audio without having to buy advanced sound cards.
