2.1The ASUS P4T

The ASUS P4T motherboard is carefully designed for the demanding PC user who wants advanced features processed by the fastest processors.

2.1.1Specifications

Latest Intel Processor Support

Intel Socket 423 Pentium® 4 processors

Intel 850 Chipset: Features the Intel® 850 chipset (Memory Controller Hub, I/O Controller Hub, and Firmware Hub) with support for AGP 4X mode; 400MHz Front Side Bus (FSB); and dual channel RDRAM.

Intel ICH2: The IntelI/OControllerHub2 (ICH2) features support for UltraDMA/100, which allows burst mode data transfer rates of up to 100MB/ sec; and two USB controllers for a total of 4 USB ports.

PC800 Memory Support: Equipped with fourRambusInlineMemoryModule (RIMM) sockets to support IntelPC800/PC600-compliantRambus DRAMs (RDRAMs) (available in 64, 96, 128, 192, 256, 512MB densities) up to 2GB. These RDRAMs are necessary to meet the increase in processor performance and multimedia and 3D functions, especially where high bandwidth is required.

Intel® Accelerated Hub Architecture:Features a dedicated high speed hub link between the ICH2 and MCH with a bandwidth of 266MB/sec – twice the maximum bandwidth of the PCI bus.

AGP Pro Slot: Comes with an Accelerated Graphics Port Pro slot that supports AGP cards for high performance, component level interconnect targeted at 3D graphical applications using a 1X, 2X, or 4X mode bus. Backward compatible to support AGP 2X and AGP 1X.

UltraDMA/100 Support: Comes with an onboard PCI Bus Master IDE controller with two connectors that support four IDE devices on two channels. Supports UltraDMA/100, UltraDMA/66, UltraDMA/33, PIO Modes 3 & 4 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.

More USB Ports: Supports a total of 4 USB ports for more peripheral connectivity options.

Wake-Up Support: SupportsWake-On-LAN,Wake-On-Ring,Keyboard WakeUp, and BIOSWake-Up.

• 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 to allow manual adjustment of the processor’s external frequency.

Around-the-ClockIntrusion Detection:Chassis intrusion circuitry can log chassis open events into LDCM. 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!

2.FEATURES

SMBus: Features the System Management Bus interface, which is used to physically transport commands and information between SMBus devices.

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 or Intel LDCM software.

Legacy Free: Provides five32-bitPCI (PCI 2.2 compliant) with no ISA, eliminating bottlenecks and system memory management issues. All PCI slots can support Bus Master PCI cards, such as SCSI or LAN cards. (PCI supports up to 133MB/s maximum throughput.)

Low Pin Count (LPC) Multi-I/O: Provides twohigh-speedUART compatible serial ports and one parallel port with EPP and ECP capabilities. UART2 can also be directed from COM2 to the Infrared Module for wireless connections.

Enhanced ACPI & Anti-BootVirus Protection:Programmable BIOS (Flash EEPROM), offering enhanced ACPI for Windows 98/2000/Millenium compatibility, built-in firmware-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/ RDRAM frequency adjustments, boot block write protection, and HD/SCSI/MO/ ZIP/CD/Floppy boot selection.

IrDA: Supports an optional infrared port module for a wireless interface.

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

Onboard LED: The onboard LED will light up when there is standby power to the motherboard. This acts as a reminder to the user to turn OFF the power before plugging and unplugging devices so as not to damage the motherboard, peripherals, and/or components.

Integrated LAN Capability (optional): Features the Intel ICH2 integrated LAN controller, which supports Wired for Management, remote wake-up, and OnNow initiative to reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

2.FEATURES

2.1.2Performance

High-SpeedData Transfer Interface:Onboard IDE Bus Master controller with two connectors that support four IDE devices in two channels. Supports UltraDMA/100/66, UltraDMA/33 (IDE DMA Mode 2), PIO Modes 3 & 4, and supports Enhanced IDE devices, such as DVD-ROM, CD-ROM, CD-R/RW, LS-120, and Tape Backup drives. UltraDMA/100 is backward compatible with DMA/66, DMA/33, and DMA and with existing DMA devices and systems so there is no need to upgrade current EIDE/IDE drives and host systems. (UltraDMA/66/100 requires a 40-pin 80-conductor cable to be enabled.)

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

RDRAM Optimized Performance: This motherboard supports the new generation memory, Rambus Dynamic Random Access Memory (RDRAM). While PC100 SDRAM modules operate at 100MHz with a peak bandwidth of 0.8GB/s, MCH dual channel Rambus DRAMs can operate at up to 400MHz with a peak bandwidth of 3.2GB/s.

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 98/2000/Millenium, 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 have to wait for a long time for system bootup.

New Compliancy: Both the BIOS and hardware levels of the 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 Windows 95/NT and later.Color-codedconnectors and descriptive icons make identification easy as required by PC 99.
