      The motherboard supports AMD AM2+/AM2 for Phenom FX/Phenom/Athlon 64/ Sempron/Athlon 64 X2/ Athlon 64 FX/ processors and compatible with Phenom™ II/ Athlon™ X4/ Athlon™ X3/ Athlon™ X2 (AM3 CPU)with 2MB / 1MB / 512KB L2 cache, which is based on 64-bit architecture. It features 5200 MT/s HyperTransport3.0 Bus, dual-channel un-buffered DDR2 1066 memory support and AMD Cool 'n' Quiet! Technology.

      HyperTransport 3.0 Support
      HyperTransport™ 3.0 technology provides 2.6 times more bandwidth than HyperTransport™ 1.0, radically improving system efficiency to create a smoother, faster computing environment.

      Dual channel DDR2 1066
      This motherboard can support native DDR2 1066. It provides faster data transfer rate and more bandwidth to increase memory data transfer rate and computing efficiency, enhancing system performance in 3D graphics and other memory demanding applications.
      *DDR2 1066 is supported by some of the AM3/AM2+ CPUs only. Refer to www.asus.com for the supported CPU models.

      64-bit CPU support
      64-bit computing, the technology to replace 32-bit architecture, delivers advanced system performance, faster memory access and increased productivity. This motherboard provides excellent compatibility and flexibility by supporting either 64-bit or 32-bit architecture.


      NVIDIA® GeForce™ 8200
      NVIDIA GeForce 8200 offers the latest support of DirectX10 graphics features. It also supports HyperTransport™ 3.0 interface, PCI Express™ 2.0 bus architecture, Serial ATA 3 Gb/s devices and is optimized with AMD’s latest AM2+ and multi-core CPUs to provide excellent system performance.

      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 in applications such as 3D gaming.

      Serial ATA 3Gb/s
      This motherboard supports next-generation SATA hard drives based on the new SATA 3Gb/s storage specification, allowing RAID 0, RAID 1,RAID 0+1,RAID 5 and JBOD configurations for five SATA connectors.

      Gigabit Lan
      This capability ensures rapid transfer of data from WAN to LAN without any added arbitration or latency.
      High Definition Audio
      Enjoy high-end sound system on your PC! The onboard 6-channel HD audio (High Definition Audio, previously codenamed Azalia) CODEC enables high-quality 192KHz/24-bit audio output, jack-sensing feature, retasking functions and multi-streaming technology that simultaneously sends different audio streams to different destinations. You can now talk to your partners on the headphone while playing a multi-channel network games. All of these are done on one computer.

      AMD Cool ´n´ Quiet! Technology
      M4N78-AM supports AMD Cool ´n´ Quiet! Technology, which monitors system operation and automatically adjusts CPU voltage and frequency for a cool and quiet environment.

      ASUS Q-Fan
      ASUS Q-Fan technology intelligently adjusts CPU fan speeds according to system loading to ensure quiet, cool and efficient operation.

      Max. 10 USB 2.0 ports
      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.
