K8U-X 800MHz /ULI M1689 /8 x USB2.0 ports
The AMD Athlon 64 processor is based on AMD64 technology, 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.
AMD Cool 'n' Quiet! Technology
The K8U-X supports AMD Cool 'n' Quiet! Technology, which monitors system operation and automatically adjusts CPU voltage and frequency for a cool and quiet environment.
Chipset-integrated SATA and RAID
Serial ATA is the next generation ATA specification that provides scalable performance with up to 150MB/s data transfer rate. The latest Uli M1689 chipset also enables users to build Maximum 2 SATA hard disk as an RAID0, 1, JBOD array.
AGP8X (AGP 3.0) is the next generation VGA interface specification that enables enhanced
graphics performance with high bandwidth up to 2.12GB/s.
Integrated 10/100 LAN
The on-board LAN controller is a highly integrated single-chip Fast Ethernet controller. It is enhanced with an ACPI management function to provide efficient power management for advanced operating systems.
S/PDIF-out on Back I/O Port
ASUS K8U-X provides convenient connectivity to external home theater audio systems via a S/PDIF-out (SONY-PHILIPS Digital Interface) jack. It allows to transfer digital audio without converting to analog format and keeps the best signal quality.
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.
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 the CMOS data. Just simply restart the system, the BIOS would show the previous setting and then users can amend the CPU setting again.
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.
