| Intel LGA775 Pentium 4 CPU|
This motherboard supports the latest Pentium 4 CPU from Intel in LGA775 package. With 1066/ 800/ 533MHz FSB, Hyper-Threading Technology and core-speeds up to 3.8GHz and beyond, Intel's LGA775 Pentium 4 is one of the fastest desktop processors to date.
| LGA775 Intel® Core™2 Processor Ready |
This motherboard supports the latest Intel® Core™2 processors in LGA775 package. With new Intel® Core™ microarchitecture technology and 1066 / 800 MHz FSB, Intel® Core™2 processor is one of the most powerful and energy efficient CPU in the world.
| Supports Intel® Dual/Single-Core 65nm Processors|
This motherboard support Intel® 65nm Pentium® D/ Intel® Pentium® 4/ Celeron® processors. ASUS motherboard is the ideal solution to enhance the performance of new generation processors.
| Intel 945 chipset|
The Intel 945P is the latest and one of the most powerful chipsets in personal computing. It supports 800MHz FSB (front-side-bus), PCI Express graphics and dual-channel DDR2 memory, and Intel's dual-core CPU for fast multi-tasking.
| PCI Express Architecture|
PCI Express is the latest I/O interconnect technology that will replace the existing PCI. With a bus bandwidth 4 times higher than that of AGP 8X interface, PCI Express x16 bus performs much better than AGP 8X in applications such as 3D gaming. PCI Express x1 also outperforms PCI interface with its exceptional high bandwidth up to 500MB/s. The high speed PCI Express interface creates new usages on desktop PCs e.g., Gigabit LAN, 1394b, and high-speed RAID systems.
| PEG Link |
This latest technology, PEG (PCI Express Graphics) Link Mode, is a unique feature that enables users to boost graphics card performance for superior video quality.
PEG Link allows users to raise GPU and VGA memory throughput via the motherboard BIOS the same way system bus and memory bus are tweaked. PEG Link Mode enables powerful video performance on DX8 and DX9 applications. ASUS engineers carefully fine-tuned the parameters for every single PCI-Express card to provide system stability during high-speed graphics operation.
| Serial ATAII |
Serial ATAII is the next generation ATA specification that provides scalable performance for today and tomorrow. With up to 150MB/s data transfer rate, Serial ATA is faster than current Parallel ATA.
| ASUS Q-Fan technology|
Constant, high-pitched noise generated from heatsink fans are a thing of the past thanks to ASUS Q-Fan. Q-Fan technology intelligently adjusts fan speeds according to system loading to ensure quiet, cool and efficient operation.
| ASUS MyLogo |
ASUS MyLogo personalizes and adds style to your system with customizable boot logos.
CrashFree BIOS2 allows users to restore BIOS data from a floppy diskette even when BIOS code and data are corrupted during upgrade or invaded by virus. Unlike other competing vendors' products, ASUS motherboards now enable users to enjoy this protection feature without the need to pay for an optional ROM.
