you game enough?
Representing motherboard engineering at its best, the performance
of A8N-SLI Deluxe is not for the faint of heart. The NVIDIA® SLI ™(Scalable
Link Interface) technology enables two PCI-Express cards
on this motherboard to provide extreme performance over the
edge. Enjoy the latest games with most visual effects; go
ahead with the most graphics demanding multimedia utilities.
Don't worry, this mobo is good enough for you, the question
is, are you game enough for A8N-SLI.
64bit CPU support
64-bit computing, the next generation technology to replace current 32-bit
architecture, delivers advanced system performance, faster memory access and
increased productivity. This motherboard provides excellent compatibility and
flexibility by supporting either 64-bit or 32-bit architecture.
for AMD Athlon 64FX/Athlon 64 X2/Athlon 64
A8N-SLI supports AMD 939-pin Athlon 64 FX/ Athlon 64 processors
with 1MB/512KB L2 cache which is based on 64-bit architecture.
It features 2000/1600 MT/s HyperTransport Bus and dual-channel
un-buffered DDR400 memory support.
Enjoy the extraordinary CPU power from the latest dual-core CPU. The advanced
processing technology contains two physical CPU cores with individually dedicated
L2 Caches to satisfy the rising demand for more powerful processing capability.
(Refer to www.asus.com support site for AMD Athlon 64 X2 support list)
Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual-Core processor
This motherboard supports AMD 939-pin Athlon™ 64 X2
Dual-Core processor with 1MBx2 or 512KBx2 L2 cache which
is based on 64-bit architecture. It features better multithreaded
/ multitasking performance than Athlon™ 64 FX / Athlon™ 64.
NVIDIA nForce4 SLI MCP
NVIDIA® SLI™technology revolutionizes PC performance
by combining multiple PCI Express GPUs in a single and scalable
system! Gamers and hardcore enthusiasts know that dual GPUs
mean increased, supercharged 3D graphics and performance.
PCI Express Architecture
PCI Express is the latest I/O interconnect technology that
will replace the existing PCI. With a bus bandwidth 4 times
higher than that of AGP 8X interface, PCI Express x16 bus
performs much better in applications such as 3D gaming.
The PCI Express x1 interface creates new usages on desktop
PCs e.g., TV tuner, 1394b, and high-speed RAID systems.
A8N-SLI supports next-generation SATA hard drives based on the new SATA 3Gb/s
storage specification. Furthermore, the chipset has two dedicated SATA controllers
delivering more scalable performance and doubles the bus bandwidth for fast
hard drive data retrieval and saves.
The nForce4 chipset incorporated four Serial ATA and two parallel connectors
with high performance RAID functions in RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 0+1 and JBOD.
The Silicon Image controller provides another four Serial ATA connectors for
RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 10, and RAID 5 functions. The A8N-SLI Deluxe is the ideal
solution to enhance hard disk performance and data back up protection without
the cost of add-on cards.
Dual Gigabit LAN & AI NET2
The integrated dual Gigabit LAN design allows a PC to serve
as a network gateway for managing traffic between two separate
networks. This capability ensures rapid transfer of data
from WAN to LAN without any added arbitration or latency.
ASUS AI NET2 remotely detects cable connection the second
you turn on the system, and any faulty connections are reported
back up to 100 meters at 1 meter accuracy.
NV ActiveArmor enhances network security while delivers the highest system
performance by offloading CPU-intensive packet filtering tasks in hardware.
NV Firewall provides professional-grade traffic inspection capabilities, instanton
protection, advanced management features and is easy to use and setup via a
user friendly wizard.
Boost performance when you need it the most!
Applications such as 3D games and video editing demand a huge chunk of system
Inject "nitrous oxide" into your CPU! The patented AI NOS™(Non-delay
Overclocking System) technology intelligently detects system load and automatically
boosts performance for the most demanding tasks. Unlike other dynamic overclocking
techniques, AI NOS™reacts much faster to satisfy your unending need for
AI Audio (8-channel Audio)
A8N-SLI has eight channels of audio output with Coaxial and optical S/PDIF
connector designed to maximize your auditory experience. AI Audio also provides "Jack
Sensing" and "UAJ" functions. "Jack Sensing" automatically
detects and notifies user of any inappropriate connection. "UAJ" function
enables both input and output functions each jacks, thus eliminates the confusion
of Line-in, Line-out and Mic jacks once and for all!
ASUS Q-Fan technology intelligently adjusts both CPU fan and chassis fan speeds
according to system loading to ensure quiet, cool and efficient operation.
IEEE 1394 interface
IEEE 1394 interface provides high speed digital interface for audio/video appliances
such as digital television, digital video camcorders, storage peripherals & other
PC portable devices.
Max. 10 USB 2.0 ports supports
USB 2.0 is the latest connectivity standard for next generation components
Backwards compatible with current USB 1.1 peripherals, USB 2.0 delivers transfer
speeds up to 40 times faster at 480Mb/s, for easy connectivity and ultra-fast
The multi-language BIOS allows you to select the language of your choice from
the available options. The localized BIOS setup menu helps you configure your
system easier and faster.
ASUS CrashFree BIOS2
The CrashFree BIOS2 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.
on Back I/O Port
This motherboard provides convenient connectivity to external
home theater audio systems via an optical or coaxial 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.
