Shop Modal header 64bit CPU support 64-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 either 64-bit or 32-bit architecture. Hyper Path2 - Shorten Memory LatencyThe innovative ASUS Hyper Path2 significantly shortens the latency time between the CPU and memory and improves memory performance without sacrificing stability. CPU Lock FreeASUS Motherboards now offer the CPU Lock Free feature, which allows you to adjust CPU multiplier to 14x. The reduction of multiplier value provides more flexibility for increasing external FSB frequency to raise memory bus bandwidth. Enjoy better performance at the same CPU operation speed and improve your system without pushing the CPU to the limit. The Best Chioce for Prudent Comsumers Supporting the Intel 915PL chipset, the P5GPL-X brings PCI Express x16, Gigabit LAN, dual-channel DDR memory, 6-channel High Definition Audio and Serial ATA to enhance your computing experience. Intel EM64T Intel 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. Intel LGA775 Pentium 4 CPUThis motherboard supports the latest Pentium 4 CPU from Intel in LGA775 package. With 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. "Attention!! CPU Installation" This motherboard support Intel® single-core 65nm intel® Pentium® 4/ Celeron® processors. ASUS motherboard is the ideal solution to enhance the performance of new generation processors. Intel 915PL chipset The Intel 915PL chipset supports the latest PC technologies such as LGA775 Pentium 4 CPU, dual-channel DDR memory architecture, and PCI Express x16 graphics card interface. The ICH6 Southbridge further provides integrated 4 SATA ports, PCI Express x1 interfaces and 8 high-speed USB 2.0 ports. PCI Express ArchitecturePCI Express is the latest I/O interconnect technology that will replace the existing PCI interface. 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. Dual-Channel DDR400 Dual-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 6.4GB/s. ADI SoundMAX High Definition AudioThe onboard 6-channel High Definition audio CODEC enables high-quality ADI AD1986A audio CODEC, which 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. Intel Gigabit LANThe P5GPL-X comes with a Gigabit LAN controller to meet your growing networking needs. The controller provides faster data bandwidth for your Internet, LAN, and file sharing requirements. Serial ATASerial ATA 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 technologyASUS Q-Fan technology intelligently adjusts fan speeds according to system loading to ensure quiet, cool and efficient operation. Max. 8 USB 2.0 ports supportsUSB 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. ASUS CrashFree BIOS2The CrashFree BIOS2 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. 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. Just simply restart the system, the BIOS would show the previous setting and then users can amend the CPU setting again.
