|Intel® Core™2 Extreme / Core™2 Quad / Core™2 Duo CPU support|
This motherboard supports Intel® LGA775 Core™ 2 Extreme / Core™ 2 Quad/ Core™ 2 Duo processors, which are excellent for multitasking, multimedia, and enthusiastic gamers with 1333/1066/800 MHz FSB. This motherboard also supports Intel® CPUs in the 45nm manufacturing process.
LGA775 Intel® 45nm Processor Ready
This motherboard supports the latest Intel 45nm CPU which introduces new micro-architecture features for greater performance at a given frequency, up to 50% larger L2 caches, and expanded power management capabilities for new levels of energy efficiency.
Dual channel DDR3 1333(O.C.) / DDR2 1066(O.C.) support
The motherboard supports DDR3 1333/1066/800 MHz or DDR2 memory 1066/800/667 MHz to meet the higher bandwidth requirements of the latest operation system, 3D graphics, multimedia, and Internet applications. The dual-channel DDR3/DDR2 architecture doubles the bandwidth of your system memory to boost system performance, eliminating bottlenecks with peak bandwidths of up to 19.2 GB/s.
Intel® G41 Chipset
The Intel® G41 Express Chipset is designed to support dual-channel DDR2 1066 (overclocking)/800/667 architecture, 1333/1066/800 Front Side Bus (FSB), PCIe 1.1, and mutli-core CPUs. It especially includes Intel® Fast memory bandwidth and reduces the latency of the memory accesses.
High Definition Audio
Enjoy high-end sound system on your PC! The onboard 8-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.
The on-board LAN controller is a highly integrated GbLAN controller. It is enhanced with an ACPI management function to provide efficient power management for advanced operating systems.
