Asus P4P8X SE Intel 865P Motherboard

With a new power design supporting the Prescott CPU, the P4P8X SE 865P motherboard is your bridge to new-generation computing. It also comes ready with support for dual-channel DDR, Hyper-Threading Technology, AGP 8X, Serial ATA , Gbit LAN, 6-channel audio and more.

Intel 865P chipset
Leveraging the Intel 865P chipset to support 3.2 GHz+ CPU, Dual Channel DDR memory, Intel Hyper-Threading Technology, and a full-range of advanced features, P4P8X SE really delivers a full-value, high-performance solution for today's most demanding tasks.

Dual-Channel DDR Memory
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.

The AI Series supports Gigabit LAN by integrating the 3COM 3C940 controller, equipped with a unique net-diagnosing Marvell utility-- VCT (Virtual Cable Tester). The controller intelligently detects net connection status up to 100 meters from a remote location and reports the distance of bad cable.

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. The P4P8X now enables users to enjoy this protection feature without the need to pay for an optional ROM.

AGP8X (AGP 3.0) is the next generation VGA interface specification that enables enhanced graphics performance with high bandwidth up to 2.12GB/s.

Serial ATA technology
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.

With ASUS EZ Flash, you can update BIOS before entering operating system. No more DOS-based flash utility and bootable diskette required.

USB 2.0 ports supports
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.
