With support for unique ASUS Hyper-Path Technology, Intel 865PE chipset, P4 CPU on 800MHz FSB, and dual-channel DDR memory, the P4P800-X is all about high-speed performance. It also indulges your desire for fast connection and data transfer with AGP 8X interface, Serial ATA connectivity and 10/100 LAN.
Intel 865 PE chipset
Leveraging the Intel 865PE chipset to support 3.2 GHz+ P4 CPU on 800MHz FSB, Dual DDR 400 memory, Intel Hyper-Threading Technology, and a full-range of advanced features, P4P800-X really delivers a full-value, high-performance solution for today's most demanding tasks.
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.
ASUS Hyper Path Technology
ASUS Hyper Path, a unique technology for the ASUS P4P800-X, optimizes the true potential of the Intel 865PE chipset to deliver the highest performance amongst competing 856PE-based solutions.
AGP8X (AGP 3.0) is the next generation VGA interface specification that enables enhanced graphics performance with high bandwidth up to 2.12GB/s.
Serial ATA technology
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 100% software compatibility.
S/PDIF-out on Back I/O Port
ASUS P4P800-X provides convenient connectivity to external home theater audio systems via a 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.
SoundMAX Digital Audio System
The SoundMAX Digital Audio System is the industry's highest performance and most reliable audio solution for business professionals, audiophiles, musicians, and gamers. SoundMAX Digital Audio System can output 5.1 channel surround sound and features state-of-the-art DLS2 MIDI synthesizer and supports all major game audio technologies.
Integrated 10/100 LAN
The on-board LAN controller is a highly integrated single-chip Fast Ethernet controller. It is enhanced with an ACPI management function to provide efficient power management for advanced operating systems.
The unique AI Overclocking Tuner in BIOS 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.
ASUS 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.
