2.FEATURES

2.1The ASUS CUWE Motherboard

The CUWE motherboard from ASUS is carefully designed for the demanding PC user who wants many smart features in a small package.

2.1.1 Specifications

Latest Intel Processor Support!

Intel Pentium III EB

133MHz FSB, Coppermine core

FC-PGA

Intel Pentium III E

100MHz FSB, Coppermine core

FC-PGA

Intel Celeron

66MHz FSB, Mendocino core

PPGA

Latest Intel 810E Chipset! Features 133/100/66MHz FSB Intel 810E chipset with the Accelerated Hub Architecture, which provides direct connections between the 810E chipset and subsystems such as IDE controllers, USB controllers, and PCIadd-incards.

Multi-Cache! Supports processors with 256, 128, or 0KB Pipelined Burst Level 2 Cache.

Integrated Graphics! Controller supports 3D hyper pipelined architecture, parallel data processing and compression, precise pixel interpolation, full 2D hardware acceleration, and motion video acceleration. Onboard 4MB32-bit133MHz SDRAM display cache allows up to 1024x768x16bit color for 3D graphics and 1600x1200x8bit color for 2D graphics.

ASUS Graphics Driver! You can gain about 12% performance over that of the standard graphics driver (2Dhigh-endgraphics WinMark) using ASUS’ custom graphics driver. ASUS custom graphics driver also provides more features and provides selection of higher refresh rates and resolutions.

Versatile Memory Support! DRAM controller supports asymmetrical addressing and three DIMM sockets support IntelPC100-compliantSDRAMs (16, 32, 64, 128, or 256MB) up to 512MB. (supports a maximum of 4 sides)

• JumperFree™ Mode! Allows processor settings and easy overclocking of frequency and Vcore voltage all through BIOS setup when JumperFree™ mode is enabled.Easy-to-useDIP switches instead of jumpers are included incase you want to manually adjust the processor’s external frequency.

Smart Slots! Five32-bitPCI (rev 2.2) with two16-bitISA expansion slots, six PCI with one ISA, or six PCI with no ISA, depending on territory. PCI supports up to 133MB/s maximum throughput. Each PCI slot can support a Bus Master PCI card (such as SCSI or LAN cards).

Latest Low Pin Count Multi-I/O:Provides two high-speed UART compatible serial ports and one parallel port with EPP and ECP capabilities.

Integrated IDE! Controller supports UltraDMA/66 up to 66MB/s, UltraDMA/ 33 up to 33MB/s, and PIO Mode 4 up to 17MB/s.

Peripheral Wake-Up! SupportsWake-On-LAN,Wake-On-Ring,KeyboardWake-Up,and BIOSWake-Up.

AMR Slot! Audio Modem Riser slot supports a very affordable audio and/or modem riser card.

2.FEATURES

Around-the-ClockIntrusion Detection!Supports chassis intrusion monitoring through the ASUS ASIC. The onboard battery supports detection even when normal power is removed and through a new design, battery drain is even lower than the RTC used for keeping time!

Firmware Hub! Provides security and other latest power computing features.

Monitoring for your PC’s Health! Provided ASUS PC Probe or Intel LDCM allows PC health monitoring.

Enhanced ACPI & Anti-BootVirus Protection!Programmable BIOS (Flash EEPROM), offering enhanced ACPI for Windows 98 compatibility, built-in firm- ware-based virus protection, and autodetection of most devices for virtually automatic setup.

Smart BIOS! 4Mbit firmware gives a neweasy-to-useinterface which provides more control and protection over the motherboard. Provides Vcore and CPU/ SDRAM frequency adjustments, boot block write protection, and HD/SCSI/MO/ ZIP/CD/Floppy boot selection. Hardware random number generator supports new security software for data protection and secured Internet transactions.

Wired for Management (WfM) V2.0! Supports remote monitor, diagnosis, and management (Alert on LAN 2.0) network configuration.

2.1.2 Optional Components

The following onboard components are optional at the time of purchase:

Smart Audio! Software Audio and Hardware AC’97 V2.1 codec compliant with sample rate conversion form 7kHz to 48kHz. Full audio output can be directed to the chassis’ internal speaker in order to save space and money while reducing complications associated with external speakers.

Smart Networking! Features the Intel 82559Fast-EthernetLAN Controller (fully integrated10BASE-T/100BASE-TX).Supports TCO function.

Space Savings! Digital Flat Panel (DFP) Interface gives a direct digital connection for connecting adigital flat panel (analog flat panel must be connected to theVGA-outconnector) to your PC. This interface transmits sharp, bright images by eliminatingdigital-to-analogandanalog-to-digitalconversions, which can accumulate noise and degrade image quality.

No Messy Wires! Integrated Consumer IR and Standard IR supports an optional remote control package for wireless interfacing with external peripherals, personal gadgets, or an optional remote controller.

2.FEATURES

2.1.3Performance

UltraPerformance! Onboard IDE Bus Master controller with two connectors that support four IDE devices in two channels. Supports UltraDMA/66, UltraDMA/ 33 (IDE DMA Mode 2), PIO Modes 3 & 4, and supports Enhanced IDE devices, such as Tape Backup,CD-ROM,CD-R/RW,andLS-120drives.

Double or Quadruple the IDE Transfer Speed! IDE transfers using UltraDMA/ 33 Bus Master IDE can handle rates up to 33MB/s and up to 66MB/s using UltraDMA/66 technology. The best of all is that these new technology is compatible with existing ATA-2 IDE specifications so there is no need to upgrade current IDE devices or cables.

Concurrent PCI! Concurrent PCI allows multiple PCI transfers from PCI master buses to memory to CPU.

SDRAM Optimized Performance! ASUS smart series motherboards support the new generation memory, Synchronous Dynamic RandomAccess Memory (SDRAM), which increases the data transfer rate to 800MB/s max usingPC100-compliantSDRAM.

ACPI Ready! ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) is also implemented on all ASUS smart series motherboards. ACPI provides more Energy Saving Features for future operating systems (OS) supporting 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. To fully utilize the benefits of ACPI, anACPI-supportedOS, such as Windows 98, must be used.

Suspend and Go! Suspend-To-RAM(STR) provides maximum power savings

as an alternative to leaving the computer ON and QuickStart™ so that you do not fall asleep waiting for system bootup. (STR requires OS support and does not support ISA cards; ISA cards may fail to work coming out of STR mode.)

New Compliancy! Both the BIOS and hardware levels of the motherboard meet PC’99 compliancy. 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 Windows 95/98/NT. Colorcoded connectors and descriptive icons make identification easy as required by PC’99.

HighestAudio Quality! AC’97 DAC/ADC built into the audio codec reduces noise to improve audio quality and performance for a SNR (signal to noise ratio) of +90dB. These features greatly improve voice synthesis and recognition.

Extreme Graphics! The integrated motion compensation allows for smooth MPEG1 or MPEG2 video playback. Fast 3D graphics engine allows for an exciting gameplay experience.
