The P5PE-VM supports the latest Pentium 4 CPU from Intel in LGA775 package. With 1066(O.C)/800/ 533MHz FSB, Hyper-Threading Technology and core-speeds up to 3.8GHz and beyond, Intel's LGA775 Pentium 4 is one of the fastest desktop processors to date.
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.
Intel 865G chipset
Leveraging the Intel 865G chipset to support 3.8GHZ+ P4 CPUs on 800MHz FSB, dual-channel DDR 400 memory, Intel Hyper-Threading Technology, Intel Extreme Graphics 2, and a full-range of advanced features, the P5PE-VM delivers a full-value solution for today's most demanding tasks.
Intel® Extreme Graphics 2
The P5PE-VM,with integrated Intel Extreme Grpahics 2,delivers powerful integrated 2D and 3D graphics performance for functionality and value. It supports DVI-ADD card which is an AGP Digital Display card designed to make the system capable of driving a variety of DVO devices (e.g., TMDS, LVDS and TV-Out.)
Dual Channel DDR400
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 6.4GB/s.
AGP8X (AGP 3.0) enables enhanced graphics performance with high bandwidth up to 2.12GB/s.
ASUS CPU Lock Free
The P5PE-VM offers the CPU Lock Free feature, which allows you to adjust CPU multiplier to 14x. The reduction of multiplier value provides more flexibility for increasing external FSB frequency to raise memory bus bandwidth. CPU Lock Free boosts overall system performance by making synchronous modification possible. Enjoy better performance at the same CPU operation speed and improve your system without pushing the CPU to the limit.
Serial ATA technology
Serial ATA provides scalable performance. With up to 150MB/s data transfer rate, Serial ATA is faster than current Parallel ATA.
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.
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.
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.
The motherboard and its packaging comply with the European Union's Restriction on the use of Hazardous Substances (RoHS). This is in line with the ASUS vision of creating environment-friendly and recyclable products and packaging to safeguard consumers' health while minimizing the impact on the environment.
With EZ Flash, you can update BIOS before entering operating system. No more DOS-based flash utility and bootable disks are required.
