The ASUS Athlon 64 FX motherboard is finally here to deliver breakthrough performance. Supporting a dual-channel memory architecture, scalable HyperTransport bus, IEEE 1394 high-speed connection, S/PDIF digital audio, SATA RAID, onboard LAN and more, the SK8N is definitely rich in features and robust in performance.

AMD Opteron processor
The AMD Opteron and Athlon 64 FX processor for servers, workstation, and high-end desktop are based on AMD 64 architecture, which represents the landmark introduction of the industry's first x86-64 technology. This next-generation processor provides a dramatic leap forward in compatibility, performance, investment protection, and reduced total cost of ownership and development.

HyperTransport Technology is a high-speed, low latency, point-to-point link designed to increase the communication speed between integrated circuits in computers, servers, embedded systems, and networking and telecommunications equipment up to 48 times faster than some existing technologies.

Dual-Channel DDR400
The 128-bit DDR Memory architecture doubles the DDR400 bendwith. System bottlenecks are eliminated with blanced architecture and peak bandwidths up to 5.3 GB/s.

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

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.

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

S/PDIF-out Port on back I/O (on audio model only)
The SK8N's S/PDIF out function turns your computer into a high-end entertainment system with digital connectivity to powerful speaker systems.

6 Channel Audio
The SK8N uses an onboard Audio CODEC that lets you enjoy high-quality 6-channel audio without having to buy advanced sound cards.

USB 2.0 Ready
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
