Asus P5LD2-VM, Intel 945G, LGA775 Pentium 4, DDR2 667/533/400
Intel 945G chipset
The Intel 945G graphics memory controller hub(GMCH) and the ICH7 I/O controller hub provide the vital interfaces for the motherboard. The GMCH features the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900, an integrated graphics engine for enhanced 3D, 2D, and video capabilities. The GMCH provides the interface for processor in the 775-land package with 533/800/1066MHz FSB, dual channel DDR2 at speeds of up to 667MHz, and PCI Express x16 graphics card.
Intel LGA775 Pentium 4 CPU
This motherboard supports the latest Pentium 4 CPU from Intel in LGA775 package. With 1066 MHz FSB, Hyper-Threading Technology, Intel EM64T, Intel EIST, Intel's LGA775 Pentium 4 is one of the fastest desktop processors to date.
Dual-Core CPU Support
Enjoy the extraordinary CPU power from the latest dual-core CPU. The advanced processing technology contains two physical CPU cores with individually dedicated L2 Caches to satisfy the rising demand for more powerful processing capability.
PCI Express Architecture
PCI Express is the latest I/O interconnect technology that will replace the existing PCI interface. With a bus bandwidth 4 times higher than that of AGP 8X interface, PCI Express x16 bus performs much better than AGP 8X in applications such as 3D gaming. PCI Express x1 also outperforms PCI interface with its exceptional high bandwidth up to 500MB/s.
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900
The new Intel Graphics engine has new capabilities that provide a significant increase in graphics performance. DirectX 9.0 hardware acceleration, 333MHz core clock, and up to 224MB of video memory all together provide a full-value, high performance graphic
Intel Gb LAN
The on-board LAN controller is a highly integrated Intel GbLAN controller. It is enhanced with an ACPI management function to provide efficient power management for advanced operating systems.
Dual-Channel DDR2 667
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 up to 10.6GB/s.
64-bit CPU support
64-bit computing, the next generation technology to replace current 32-bit architecture, delivers advanced system performance, faster memory access and increased productivity. This motherboard provides excellent compatibility and flexibility by supporting either 64-bit or 32-bit architecture.
Serial ATA II
Serial ATA II is the next generation ATA specification that provides scalable performance foroday and tomorrow. With up to 300MB/s data transfer rate, Serial ATA II is faster than current Parallel ATA, while providing 100% software compatibility.
Max. 8 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.
ASUS CrashFree BIOS2
The CrashFree BIOS2 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 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 directly from the BIOS setup menu. No more DOS-based flash utility and bootable diskette required.
You can convert your favorite photo into a 256-color boot logo for a more colorful and vivid image on your screen.
