ASUS Releases New Motherboard For SOHO Or Power Users
The ASUS P5NT WS is built on the NVIDIAC55 + MCP55PXE chipset structure which supports a LGA775 Socket for running Intel Dual-core/Quad-core CPUs and two NVIDIA SLI graphic cards with Dual x16 speeds on the same platform.
The ASUS P5NT WS motherboard is fitted with solid aluminum capacitors and a conductive polymer for improved system stability. These high quality materials also help ensure that the motherboard will have a longer product life time.
The PCI-X Structure of the P5NT WS motherboard is a newer, higher speed version of the conventional PCI standard. It is also fully hardware and software backward compatible to previous generations of PCI. These new standards keep pace with upcoming advances in high-bandwidth business-critical applications such as Fibre Channel, RAID, networking, InfiniBand Architecture, SCSI, and iSCSI.
The innovative heat-pipe thermal design of the P5NT WS motherboard directs the heat generated by the chipsets to the heatsink near the back I/O ports – where it can be dissipated by existing airflow from the CPU fan or optional fans. Furthermore, it provides options for users to install a side-flow fan or a passive cooler.
The P5NT WS also encompasses an 8-phase power Design that reduces input ripple current and output ripple voltages – keeping the CPU and power modules from the risk of high power stress. It also provides reliability under heavy-loading and overclocking by stabilizing output current and voltages. All this lets components attain longer lifespans and allows them to operate at 15°C (36°F) lower than conventional solutions – resulting in lower fan speeds for quieter operation.
AI Clock Skew - this feature automatically skews the memory clock signal timing to improve memory overclocking capabilities by 10 to 15%. The clock signal can be adjusted to reserve enough Setup time / Hold time in order to maintain the system's stability.
AI Gear allows users to choose from profiles to adjust the CPU frequency and voltage. This allows a balance for both system performance and quietness. Having two modes: High Performance for running heavy loading applications and Max Power Saving for minimizing system noise and power consumption; AI Gear provides real-time adjustments under the OS to suit varying needs.
With AI Nap, users can instantly snooze the PC without terminating any tasks. The system will continue operating at minimum power and noise till reawakened. Files will continue to download and applications will be run in the quietest state while the system is in AI Nap mode. The system will swiftly wake up in a matter of seconds with a simple click of the keyboard of mouse.
