Icecat the open catalog

Add to compare
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.
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.
Data-sheet quality: created/standardized by Icecat
The quality of the product data-sheet can be on several levels:
only logistic data imported: we have only basic data imported from a supplier, a data-sheet is not yet created by an editor.
created by ASUS: a data-sheet is imported from an official source from a manufacturer. But the data-sheet is not yet standardized by an Icecat editor.
created/standardized by Icecat: the data-sheet is created or standardized by an Icecat editor.

Long product name ASUS P5M2 motherboard:
The short editorial description of ASUS P5M2 motherboard
P5M2 - 775, DDR2, Ethernet, ATX

Marketing text ASUS P5M2 motherboard

The official marketing text of ASUS P5M2 motherboard as supplied by the manufacturer
P5M2 is based on latest Intel Xeon 3000 / CoreTM 2 Duo processor, Intel 3000 MCH, Intel ICH7R and Intel 6702 PXH 64-bit PCI Hub chipset, which achieves 102% better performance (SPECjbb2005) and 69% reduction in processor power (65W compared with 110W) than its predecessor, will provide immediate dual-processor level performance scale-up.

One Design for Dual Use
There are five expansion slots in this serverboard, including: one PCI 32bit/ 33MHz, two PCI-X 133 / 100MHz, one PCI-E x16 (x 8 link), and one SODIMM socket for ASMB3-SOL. It's not only expandable for rack-mount chassis, but also meets most pedestal applications with BMC expansion. For better thermal solution, the DIMM slots are paralleled to the airflow to reduce air block; and CPU is located at the border side to cool down effectively.

Cost-effective RAID Support
4 SATAII 300MB/s ports from ICH7R come with built-in LSI MegaRAID SATA driver support, providing software RAID 0, 1, 0+1 under Windows and major Linux; Intel® Matrix Storage (Windows) supports RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 5; users will enjoy reliable and cost-effective data protection.

Professional Network Connection Solution
P5M2 is equipped with dual server class Broadcom BCM5721 PCI-E Gigabit controllers, with "Teaming" and "Failover" function, the network connection is smoother and faster. With more than 3 years' market experience, dual Broadcom BCM5721 LAN controllers provide reliable & robust connection with wide Linux driver support.

Number of memory slots
ECC means Error Correction Code, and it is memory that is able to detect and correct some memory errors without user intervention.
Maximum internal memory
The maximum internal memory which is available in the product.
8 GB
Processor family*
A family of processors is a group of processors produced by one company over a short period of time e.g. Intel Pentium processors.
Compatible processor series*
A processor which is compatible with this device, belongs to a 'series' which is part of 'family' e.g Celeron D, Celeron G, Celeron M, or, in some cases, is the same as 'family'.
Core 2 Duo
Processor socket*
Mechanical component(s) that provides mechanical and electrical connections between a microprocessor and a printed circuit board (PCB). This allows the processor to be replaced without soldering.
Socket T (LGA 775)
Internal I/O
Number of Parallel ATA connectors*
The number of connectors (with wires) for parallel ATA (PATA), which is an interface standard for the connection of storage devices such as hard disks, floppy drives, and optical disc drives in computers.

The number of serial ports in a computer or peripheral. A serial port is a serial communication physical interface through which information transfers in or out one bit at a time. The term "serial port" usually identifies hardware more or less compliant to the RS-232 standard, intended to interface with a modem or with a similar communication device. In modern computers and peripherals, serial ports have largely been replaced by USBs and other interfaces.
