This motherboard supports Intel® LGA775 Core™ 2 Quad/ Core™ 2 Duo processors, which are excellent for multitasking, multimedia, and enthusiastic gamers with 1333/1066/800 MHz FSB. This motherboard also supports Intel® CPUs in the 45nm manufacturing process.
Intel® G41 Chipset
The Intel® G41 Express Chipset is designed to support dual-channel DDR3 1333/1066, 1333/1066/800 Front Side Bus (FSB), PCIe 1.1, and mutli-core CPUs. It especially includes Intel® Fast memory bandwidth and reduces the latency of the memory accesses.
Dual channel DDR3 1333 / DDR2 1066 support
The motherboard supports DDR3 1333/1066 MHz or DDR2 memory 800/667 MHz to meet the higher bandwidth requirements of the latest operation system, 3D graphics, multimedia, and Internet applications. The dual-channel DDR3/DDR2 architecture doubles the bandwidth of your system memory to boost system performance, eliminating bottlenecks with peak bandwidths of up to 19.2 GB/s.
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 than AGP 8X in applications such as 3D gaming.
