Appraisal: Asus A8V Deluxe

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
ASUS A8V allows user to create a high-end environment with superior performance capability in CPU, Memory, Bus speed, and abundant ASUS features such as GbLAN. A8V is destined to be expert's choice for SOHO and home server.


Supports AMD Socket 939 Athlon 64FX/Athlon 64 X2/Athlon 64
This motherboard supports AMD 939-pin Athlon 64 FX/ Athlon 64 processors with 1MB/512KB L2 cache which is based on 64-bit architecture. It features 2000/1600 MT/s HyperTransport Bus, dual-channel un-buffered DDR400 memory support and AMD Cool 'n' Quiet! Technology.

Dual-Core CPU
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. (Refer to www.asus.com support site for AMD Athlon 64 X2 support list)


AMD Athlonâ„¢ 64 X2 Dual-Core processor
This motherboard supports AMD 939-pin Athlonâ„¢ 64 X2 Dual-Core processor with 1MBx2 or 512KBx2 L2 cache which is based on 64-bit architecture. It features better multithreaded / multitasking performance than Athlonâ„¢ 64 FX / Athlonâ„¢ 64.


AMD Cool 'n' Quiet! Technology
Supports AMD Cool 'n' Quiet! Technology, which monitors system operation and automatically adjusts CPU voltage and frequency for a cool and quiet environment.

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.

AI NET (GbLAN)
The AI Series supports Gigabit LAN by integrating the Marvell controller, equipped with a unique net-diagnosing utility- VCT (Virtual Cable Tester). The controller intelligently detects net connection status up to 100 meters from a remote location and reports the distance of bad cable.

AI AUDIO (8-channel digital audio)
A8V supports eight channels of audio output. AI Audio automatically detects and identifies what types of peripherals are plugged into the audio I/O jacks and notifies users of inappropriate connection. There are also three Universal Audio Jack (UAJ®), which eliminates cable connection errors and confusion among Line-in, Line-out and Mic jacks. A8V supports 7.1-channel output, making your movie-watching experience truly a blast!

AI Overclocking
A unique option in BIOS that enables quick overclocking up to 30% (depends on CPU and RAM). It automatically detects and optimizes every relevant parameter to provide both performance and stability.

The BIOS in AI Series also keeps all the special design for overclocking:
-- Flexible CPU Core Voltage Adjustments in 0.025V increments over defaults
-- SFS (Stepless Frequency Selection) up to 400MHz at 1MHz increanerts
-- ASUS C.P.R.(CPU Parameter Recall)

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.

CrashFree BIOS 2
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.

Coaxial S/PDIF out
This motherboard provides convenient connectivity to external home theater audio systems via an coaxial 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.


ASUS MyLogo2
You can convert your favorite photo into a 256-color boot logo for a more colorful and vivid image on your screen.


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.
