DFI Unveils LANParty UT ICFX3200-T2R/G Motherboard On RD600 Chipset

The merger of ATI and AMD placed the RD600 chipset in an unusual position. Despite that DFI decided to continue production plans for the RD600. The power of the chipset's graphics processing capabilities with the incorporation of physics processing support has drawn interest from every hardcore gamer and over-clocking enthusiast around the world.

The release of the LP UT ICFX3200-T2R/G combines power of ATI's chipset with support for the latest Intel CPUs, such as the Core 2 Extreme/Quad/Duo, it may very well be the grand finale of the ATI/Intel partnership but will not be forgotten. The press release claims that the performance of RD600 will easily surpass all previous ATI chipsets in every respect including overclockability, processing power and graphics quality.

The LANParty UT ICFX3200-T2R/G supports all of Intel's latest Core 2 Extreme/Quad/Duo series processors using the ATI RD600 chip for the Northbridge and utilizing the SB600 for the Southbridge.

The new motherboard provides users with 3 sets of PCI Express x16 slots. Two of the slots are used for ATI Dual x8 Crossfire processing while the other PCIe slot (the 3rd slot) provides PCIe x2 for the physics rendering card.

When a CPU is overclocked it not only requires more power but also demands a more stable power supply. For this reason the DFI engineers have built a Six Phase Digital PWM on the DFI LANParty UT ICFX3200-T2R/G to ensure that the power that the CPU receives is always stable. This power supply design allows users to rest assured that they will never experience "blowouts" and that the CPU will be provided with clean currents up to 200A ensuring that the extra load from CPU overclocking is completely met.

The new LANParty UT ICFX3200-T2R/G motherboard supports voltage adjustments for the memory, Northbridge, HT, Southbridge as well as the CPU core. The wide range of BIOS options allows users to fine-tune the board.

To maximize its overclocking potential the DFI LANParty UT ICFX3200-T2R/G motherboard is equipped with four DDR2 slots. Support is provided for single or double sided DDR2-800 and DDR2-1066 memory and also allows the memory voltage to be raised up to 3.2V.

DFI's new LANParty UT ICFX3200-T2R/G motherboard is also provided with two Teaming technology equipped GbE LAN interfaces controlled by the high-performance Marvell 88E9052 GbE PCI-E and Marvell 88E8053 GbE PCI-E chips.

The novelty offers a total of 8 SATA interfaces. The Southbridge chip controls 4 of the SATA-2 interfaces enabling the setup of RAID 0, RAID 1 or RAID 0+1 arrays; the other 4 SATA-2 interfaces are controlled by a Promise PDC40719 chipset that supports RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 0+1 and RAID 5.

For audio, the Karajan audio module returns once more in the DFI LANParty UT ICFX3200-T2/G motherboard. It uses the RealTek ALC885 8CH sound decoder chip certified by Microsoft as Windows Vista Premium Ready.
