Overview

Thank you for choosing AOpen AX4GER / AX4GER-Nmotherboard. The AX4GER /AX4GER-Nis Intel® Socket 478 motherboard(M/B) based on the ATX form factor featuring theIntel® 845GE chipset. As high performance chipset built in the M/B, the AX4GER /AX4GER-Nmotherboard can supportIntel® Socket 478 Pentium® 4 and 400/533 MHzFront Side Bus (FSB) clock. In the AGP performance, it has one 1.5V AGP interface with 4x SBA/Data Transfer and 2x/4x Fast Write capability and pipelinedspilt-transactionlong burst transfer up to 1056MB/sec. According to different customer’s requirements, the Intel 845GE chipset memory interface supports DDR333/266 SDRAM devices with densities of 64, 128, 256, 512Mb DDR SDRAM DIMM modules and the maximum memory size can beup to 2GB. The onboard IDE controller supportsUltra DMA 33/66/100 mode and the transfer rate up to 100MB/s. Further flexibility can be

achieved by taking advantage of theCommunication and Network Riser (CNR) card option that allows audio, modem configuration on a

single baseboard design. More than that, on the strength of RealTek RTL8100BL controller on board, which is ahighly-integratedPlatform LAN Connect device, it provides 10/100M bps Ethernet for office and home use. Besides, theAX4GER /AX4GER-Nhas anAC97 CODEC chipset onboard,providing high performance and magic surround stereo

sound to let people enjoy working with it. Now, let’s enjoy all features from AOpen AX4GER / AX4GER-N

motherboard.
