The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
P4V8X-MX PE4 Socket478 FSB800 mATX
Product code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
Category :
The motherboard or mainboard is the component that connects all the different parts of your computer. Often it has some integrated components like a sound card, enabling your computer to play sound, or a network card, to connect your computer to the network. The standard form factor (size) for motherboards is ATX, you need at least a midi-tower to fit one of those in. Micro-ATX motherboards are often more complete and have more onboard devices, like a video board and fit in smaller cases, but are generally less expandable.

The best value P4 solution for SATA support
Empowered by integrated graphics and Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology, P4V8X-MX provides multiple and mainstream choices including 2xSATA, 3xPCI, 8xUSB, and RAID function based on the VIA P4M800 and 8237R PLUS chipset and unique ASUS features such as C.P.R., CrashFree BIOS2, EZ Flash, MyLogo2 and also offers 10/100Mbps LAN, SATA RAID surpport.

Intel Hyper-Threading Technology support
Leveraging the VIA P4M800 chipset to support P4 CPU on 800MHz FSB, Intel Hyper-Threading Technology,and a full-range of advanced features.

Integrated Graphics
The VIA P4M800 delivers powerful integrated 2D and 3D graphics performance for functionality and value.

Serial ATA
Serial ATA is the next generation ATA specification that provides scalable performance for today and tomorrow. With up to 150MB/s data transfer rate, Serial ATA is faster than current Parallel ATA, while providing software compatibility with the legacy Parallel ATA.

RAID function
The VIA VT8237R Plus south bridge enables users to build Maximum 2 SATA hard disk as an RAID0, 1 array. And the graphical user interface provides an easy way to configure and manage disk drives or disk arrays connected.

Integrated 10/100 LAN
The on-board LAN controller is a highly integrated Fast Ethernet controller. It is enhanced with an ACPI management function to provide efficient power management for advanced operating systems.

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.

CrashFree BIOS2
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.

With ASUS EZ Flash, you can update BIOS before entering operating system. No more DOS-based flash utility and bootable diskette required.

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

Parallel processing technology support
Parallel processing technology is the simultaneous use of more than one CPU or processor core to execute a program or multiple computational threads. Ideally, parallel processing makes programs run faster because there are more engines (CPUs or Cores) running it. In practice, it is often difficult to divide a program in such a way that separate CPUs or cores can execute different portions without interfering with each other. Most computers have just one CPU, but some models have several, and multi-core processor chips are becoming the norm. There are even computers with thousands of CPUs.
