Asus P4P800S-X Motherboard Features
Intel FSB800, DDR400 and Hyper-Threading technology support Leveraging the Intel 848P chipset to support 3.6GHz+ P4 CPUs on 800MHz FSB, DDR400 memory, Intel Hyper-Threading technology, and a full-range of advanced features, the P4P800S SE SE delivers a full-value, high-performance solution for today's most demanding tasks.
DDR400 DDR400 (PC3200), the latest and fastest DDR memory standard, supports bandwidth up to 3.2GB/s to provide enhanced system performance.
AGP 8X Technology AGP8X (AGP 3.0) is the next generation VGA interface specification that enables enhanced graphics performance with high bandwidth speeds up to 2.12GB/s, AGP8X is twice as fast as AGP4X.
Serial ATA Serial 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, while providing 100% software compatibility.
S/PDIF-out on Back I/O Port The P4P800S SE's S/PDIF out function turns your computer into a high-end entertainment system with digital connectivity to powerful speaker systems.
6 Channel Audio & SoundMAX Digital Audio System The SoundMAX Digital Audio System is the industry's highest performance and most reliable audio solution for business perfessionals, audiophiles, musicians, and gamers. SoundMAX Digital Audio System can output 5.1 channel surround sound and features state-of-the-art DLS2 MIDI synthesizer with Yamaha DLSbyXG sound set, 5.1 Virtual Theater™ and supports and major game audio technologies including Microsoft DirectX™ 8.0, Microsoft DirectSound 3D, A3D, MacroFX, ZoomFX, MultiDrive 5.1, A3D and EAX.
10/100 Mbps LAN Supports Easy connectivity to your network or broadband connection with onboard LAN port, lets you take gaming online without having to buy an additional LAN card.
Max. 8 USB2.0 ports support USB 2.0 is the latest connectivity standard for next generation components and peripherals. Backward 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
AI Overclock A unique option in BIOS that enables quick overclocking up to 30% (depends on CPU and RAM). It automatically detects and optimizes every relevant parameter to provide both performance and stability.
The BIOS in P4P800S SE also provide the following design for overclocking: SFS (Stepless Frequency Selection) at 1MHz increment Adjustable FSB/DDR ratio. Fixed AGP/PCI frequencies ASUS C.P.R. (CPU Parameter Recall)
ASUS CrashFree BIOS2 The CrashFree BIOS 2 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.
ASUS Instant Music ~ Lite No need to boot your computer into the Windows before you can listen to the music use your desktop system as a CD-Player. You can turn it on & Listen to the music within seconds without booting to any operating system.
ASUS EZ Flash With ASUS EZ Flash, you can update BIOS before entering operating system. No more DOS-based flash utility and bootable diskette required.
