2.FEATURES

2.1The ASUS A7V133-M

The ASUS A7V133-Mmotherboard is carefully designed for the demanding PC user who wants advanced features processed by the fastest processors.

2.1.1 Specifications

AMD® Athlon/DuronProcessor Support:Supports Socket A-based AMD® Athlon/Duronprocessors.

North Bridge System Chipset: Features the VIA® VT8363A(VIA® Apollo KT133A) system controller with support for a 200/266MHz Front Side Bus (FSB); up to 1GB of PC133/PC100 SDRAM / VC 133 Virtual Channel Memory (VCM) SDRAM; complies with AGP 2.0 specifications for 4X, 2X, and 1X AGP modes;

and PCI 2.2. bus interface with support for 3 PCI masters. It is optimized to deliver enhanced AMD Athlon™ /Duron™ processor system performance.

“Super South” South Bridge System PCIset: VIA® VT82C686BPCIset with PCI Super-I/O Integrated Peripheral Controller (PSIPC) with support for UltraDMA/100, which allows burst mode data transfer rates of up to 100MB/sec; AC97 audio; USB controller with root hub and four function ports.

PC133 SDRAM / VC133 VCM Support: Equipped with two Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM) sockets to support Intel PC133/PC100-compliant (8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, or 512MB) or NEC’s VC133-compliant Virtual Channel (VC) SDRAM up to 1GB. VC SDRAM is a new DRAM core architecture that dramatically improves the memory system’s ability to service, among others, high multimedia requirements.

AGP Slot: Supports AGP cards for high performance, component level interconnection targeted at 3D graphical applications supporting 133MHz 4X mode.

UltraDMA/100 Support: Comes with an onboard PCI Bus Master IDE controller with two connectors that support four ATA100/66/33 devices on two channels. Supports UltraDMA/100/66/33, PIO Modes 3, 4 & 5 and Bus Master IDE DMA Mode 2, and Enhanced IDE devices, such asDVD-ROM,CD-ROM,CD-R/RW,LS-120,and Tape Backup drives.

Wake-On-LAN Connector: SupportsWake-On-LANactivity through an optional onboard Realtek Fast Ethernet Controller or an optional ASUSPCI-L10110/100 Fast Ethernet PCI card (see7. Appendix).

Wake-On-Ring Connector: SupportsWake-On-Ringactivity through a PCI modem card that supports a WOR connector.

USB: Supports up to 4 USB ports, two on the back panel and two midboard, for more peripheral connectivity options.

2. FEATURES

PC Health Monitoring: Provides an easy way to examine and manage system

 

 

status information, such as CPU and systerm voltages, temperatures, and fan

 

 

status through the onboard hardware ASUS ASIC and the bundled ASUS PC

 

 

Probe.

 

 

SMBus: Features the System Management Bus interface, which is used to physi-

 

 

cally transport commands and information between SMBus devices.

 

 

PCI Expansion Slots: Provides three32-bitPCI (Rev. 2.1) expansion slots,

 

 

which can support Bus Master PCI cards, such as SCSI or LAN cards (PCI

 

 

 

 

supports up to 133MB/s maximum throughput).

FEATURES2.

Specifications

Super Multi-I/O: Provides twohigh-speedUART compatible serial ports and

 

 

one parallel port with EPP and ECP capabilities.

 

 

Enhanced ACPI &Anti-BootVirus Protection:Programmable BIOS (Flash

 

 

EEPROM), offering enhanced ACPI for Windows 98 compatibility, built-infirm-

 

 

ware-basedvirus protection, and autodetection of most devices for virtually au-

 

 

tomatic setup.

 

 

 

 

Concurrent PCI: Concurrent PCI allows multiple PCI transfers from PCI mas-

 

 

ter busses to the memory and processor.

 

 

Smart BIOS: 2Mb firmware provides CPU/SDRAM frequency adjustments,

 

 

boot block write protection, and HD/SCSI/MO/ZIP/CD/Floppy boot selection.

 

 

Integrated Infrared (IrDA) Support: Integrated IR supports an optional re-

 

 

mote control package for wireless interfacing with external peripherals, per-

 

 

sonal gadgets, or an optional remote controller.

 

 

Desktop Management Interface (DMI):Supports DMI through BIOS, which

 

 

allows hardware to communicate within a standard protocol creating a higher

 

 

level of compatibility. (Requires DMI-enabledcomponents.)

 

 

Color-coded Connectors: To enhance user accessibility to system components and

 

 

to meet PC 99 compliancy, major connectors in this motherboard are color-coded.

2.FEATURES

2.1.2Special Features

ACPI Ready: AdvancedConfigurationPowerInterface (ACPI) provides more Energy Saving Features for operating systems that support OS Direct Power Management (OSPM) functionality. With these features implemented in the OS, PCs can be ready around the clock, yet satisfy all the energy saving standards. AnACPI-supportedOS like Windows 98 must be used for ACPI.

Easy Installation: Incorporates BIOS that supports autodetection of hard disk drives, PS/2 mouse, and Plug and Play devices to make the setup of hard disk drives, expansion cards, and other devices virtually automatic.

New Compliancy: Both the BIOS and hardware levels of this motherboard meet the stringent requirements for PC 99 certification The new PC 99 requirements for systems and components are based on the followinghigh-levelgoals: Support for Plug and Play compatibility and power management for configuring and managing all system components, and32-bitdevice drivers and installation procedures for Windows95/98/NT .Color-codedconnectors and descriptive icons make identification easy as required by PC 99.

Symbios SCSI BIOS: Supports optional ASUS SCSI controller cards through the onboard SYMBIOS firmware.

2.1.3 Optional Components

Onboard PCI Audio Controller: A single chip by Creative® Audio supports advanced Audio performance.

Realtek® RTL8139C Ethernet: A single chip fast ethernet controller for 100/ 10 Mbps capacity that supports WOL(Wake-On-LAN)feature.

2.1.4 Performance Features

Concurrent PCI: Concurrent PCI allows multiple PCI transfers from PCI master busses to the memory and processor.

High-SpeedData Transfer Interface:IDE transfers using UltraDMA/33 Bus Master IDE can handle rates up to 33MB/s. This chipset supports UltraDMA/ 100, tripling the data transfer rate to 100MB/s. UltraDMA/100 is backward compatible with DMA/66/33 and with existing DMA devices and systems, so there is no need to upgrade current EIDE/IDE drives and host systems. (UltraDMA/100 requires a 40-pin 80-conductor.)

VCM/SDRAM Optimized Performance: This motherboard supports a new generation memory, NEC® ’s 64Mb Virtual Channel Memory (VCM) Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory (SDRAM), which is compatible to the industry standard SDRAM. The VCM’s core design provides up to 50% higher SDRAM speed at reduced power consumption of about 30%. This motherboard also supports standard SDRAM, which increases the data transfer rate (1.064GB/s max usingPC133-compliantSDRAMs and 800MB/s max usingPC100-compliantSDRAMs).
