Intel Core™2 Duo
This motherboard supports the latest Intel® Core™2 processors in LGA775 package. With new Intel® Core™ microarchitecture technology and 1066 / 800 MHz FSB, Intel® Core™2 processor is one of the most powerful and energy efficient CPUs in the world.
Support Dual-Core CPU
This motherboard supports Intel® Pentium® D/Pentium® 4/Celeron® dual-core processors built on the 65-nanometer (nm) process technology with copper interconnect. Dual-core processors contain two physical CPU cores with dedicated L2 caches to meet demands for more powerful processing. Intel®´s 65nm process is the most advanced chip manufacturing technology, delivering breakthrough performance, enhanced media experience, and low power consumption. Intel® 65nm dual-core processors utilize the latest package technologies for a thinner, lighter design without compromising performance.
DDR2 is the next generation memory technology to replace the current DDR. With initial speeds from 667MHz, DDR2 memory provides bandwidth up to 5.3GB/s.
Powerful Integrated Graphics
The P5VD2-VM SE delivers powerful integrated 2D and 3D graphics engine that provides hight performance along with functionality and value.
PCI Express Architecture
PCI Express is the latest I/O interconnect technology that will replace the existing PCI. 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.
High Definition Audio
Enjoy six-end sound system on your PC! The onboard 6-channel HD audio (High Definition Audio, previously codenamed Azalia) CODEC enables high-quality 192KHz/24-bit audio output, multi-streaming feature.
SATA 3Gb/s RAID
The VIA VT8237S chipsets incorporate two SATA 3Gb/s ports with high performance RAID functions in RAID 0, 1 and JBOD. This motherboard is the ideal solution to enhance hard disk performance and data back up protection without the cost of add-on cards.
ASUS CrashFree BIOS 2
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.
ASUS EZ Flash
EZ Flash is a user-friendly BIOS update utility. Simply press the predefined hotkey to launch this tool and update BIOS from a USB flash disk before entering the OS. You can update your BIOS only in a few clicks without preparing an additional floppy diskette or using an OS-based flash utility.
