Shop Modal header Worthwhile Motherboard for Today & TomorrowThis motherboard supports the latest Pentium 4 CPU from Intel in LGA775 package. With 800MHz FSB, 1 MB L2 cache, 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. Dual CoreEnjoy the extraordinary CPU power from the latest dual-core CPU. The advanced processing technology contains two physical CPU cores with individually dedicated L2 Caches to satisfy the rising demand for more powerful processing capability. Support Intel 64-bit CPU64-bit computing, the next generation technology to replace current 32-bit architecture, delivers advanced system performance, faster memory access and increased productivity. This motherboard provides excellent compatibility and flexibility by supporting Intel EM64TIntel EM64T (Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology) allows processors to run newly written 64-bit code and to access larger amounts of memory, which delivers exceptional graphic performance and higher data processing speed. Digital media applications can take advantage of Intel EM64T in high quality video and audio processing as well as 3D rendering. Intel EIST Intel EIST (Enhanced Intel SpeedStep technology) automatically adjusts Intel 64-bit processor voltage and core frequency according to system performance demand, establishing a self-managed, lower-power consumption, less heat and quieter environment. Combined Intel EIST and ASUS Q-fan technology (adjusts fan speeds according to system loading), this motherboard provides excellently quiet, cool and efficient platform for Intel lovers. Dual-channel DDR technologyDual-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 10.6GB/s. PCI ExpressPCI 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. P5SD2-X SE's S/PDIF out The P5SD2-X SE's S/PDIF out function turns your computer into a high-end entertainment system with digital connectivity to powerful speaker systems.
