The latest Athlon™64 socket AM2 processor brings the power and multitasking performance on the desktop platform and ensures superior performance on mission critical business applications. NVIDIA GeForce 6100 GPU The brand new NVIDIA 6100 GPU features CineFX™ 3.0 Engine. This unique combination of 6100 GPU creates a single motherboard featuring a world-class DX9, Shader Model 3.0 GPU for faster and smoother game-play, a high quality video processing engine for advance quality of video and DVD playback. NVIDIA® PureVideo™ NVIDIA PureVideo DVD decoder software delivers optimal picture clarity, smooth video, and precise image scaling for all video content in home theater applications. PCI Express Interface Revolutionary PCI Express interface provides scalable bandwidth for multi-purpose usage. PCI-E x16 interface doubles the bandwidth of graphics interface of previous generation thus delivering the utmost gaming experience. PCI-E x1interface provides twice the bandwidth of PCI interface up to 250MB/s for new generation I/O peripheral devices. Superior Dual channel DDR2 800 Architecture AMD Athlon64 FX/ 64 X2 achieves the milestone for desktop computing with the CPU-integrated memory controller. This platform supports dual channel DDR2 800 memory architecture with high bandwidth of up to 12.8 GB/s and shorter memory accessing latency thus delivering the greatest memory performance. SATA 3Gb/s & RAID This platform supports reliable storage solution for enhanced data protection and data accessing performance. Serial ATA 3Gb/s is firstly introduced in this platform to provide blazingly 3Gb/s bus bandwidth thus higher disk performance. The NVIDIA RAID allows multi-disk designs to be set up as RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 5 based on users' priority of protection/ performance. This NVIDIA RAID function makes the RAID even more accessible by introducing the innovative windows-based facility. IEEE1394 motherboard This motherboard with IEEE1394 FireWire interface from Texas Instruments (TI). With the transfer speed up to 400Mb/s, the new generation IEEE1394 interface further enhances PC connectivity with consumer electronics audio/video (A/V) appliances, and storage peripherals.
