All PCI slots can support Bus Master PCI cards, such as SCSI or LAN cards. (PCI supports up to 133MB/s maximum throughput.) The MB supports Concurrent PCI, which allows multiple PCI transfers from PCI master bus to the memory and processor.
Wake-On-LAN: Supports Wake-On-LAN activity through an optional ASUS PCI-L101 10 /100 Fast Ethernet PCI card.
Wake-On-Ring: Supports Wake-On-Ring activity through a PCI modem card.
Smartcard Reader Connector: This connector that provides the convenience of PS/SC compatible Smart Card security plus support for a multitude of new financial, telephonic, and mobile access services.
USB ports: Four Universal Serial Bus (USB) ports are available for connecting USB devices such as a mouse and PDA.
Serial ports: Two 9-pin COM1/COM2 ports are for all serial devices.
The multi-I/O chipset offers complete support for a variety of I/O functions. Provides two high-speed UART 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. The Super I/O controller also supports a floppy disk drive, PS/2 keyboard, and PS/2 mouse.
2Mb firmware provides Vcore and CPU/DDR SDRAM frequency adjustments, boot block write protection, and HD/SCSI/MO/ZIP/CD/Floppy boot selection.
Supports an optional infrared port module for wireless interface.
Audio models come with the six-channel C-Media CMI8738 PCI audio controller that supplies HRTF 3D positional audio functions. The chip supports software access to PC DVD 5.1/6.1 and AC-3/DTS via SPDIF. Other integrative featues include: full DVD playback, PCtel 56K modem, and even Karaoke echo effects. The chip offers 24-bit SPDIF digital recording and playback with additional support for legacy audio SBPRO™ and FM emulator/DLS wavetable music synthesis. A software package helps setup the multi-channel PC sound system.
Microphone: Pink jack connects a microphone (or 6 channel speaker).
Line In: Light blue jack connects a tape player (or 6 channel speaker).
Line Out: Lime jack connects a headphone, a speaker (or 6 channel speaker).
Game/MIDI connector: This connector supports a joystick or a game pad for playing games, and MIDI devices for playing or editing audio files.
Parallel port: 25-pin port connects a parallel printer or other devices.
PS/2 mouse port: Green 6-pin connector is for a PS/2 mouse.
PS/2 keyboard port: Purple 6-pin connector is for a PS/2 keyboard.
Onboard LED: Signals AC power is okay.
ATX power connector: Supplies the MB with ATX 12V power. The power supply must have at least 1A on the +5V standby lead (+5VSB).
DDR DRAM Optimized Performance:
This motherboard supports a new generation memory, Double Data Rate (DDR) Dynamic Random Access Memory (DDR DRAM). This new memory technology increases performance by executing two actions per clock cycle, resulting in data transfer rates of up to 2.1GB/s for 133MHz DDR SDRAM and 1.6GB/s for 100MHz DDR SDRAM.
Advanced Configuration Power Interface (ACPI) provides more Energy Saving Features for operating systems that support OS Direct Power Management (OSPM) functionality. With these features employed in the OS, PCs can be ready around the clock but comply with energy saving standards. To fully utilize the ACPI benefits, use an ACPI-supported OS such as Windows 98.
Smartcard Reader Connector:
Features a connector that provides the convenience of PS/SC compatible Smart Card security along with support for a multitude of new financial, telephonic, and mobile access services.
PC’ 99 Compliant:
Both the BIOS and hardware levels of ASUS smart series motherboards are PC’99 compliant. The new PC’99 requirements for systems and components are based on the following high-level goals: Support for Plug-n-Play compatibility and power management for configuring and managing all system components, and 32-bit device drivers and installation procedures for Windows95/98/NT. Color-coded connectors and descriptive icons make identification easy as required by PC’99.
High-Speed Data Transfer Interface:
Support for UltraDMA/100 through the onboard IDE bus master controller triples the UltraDMA/33 burst transfer rate. UltraDMA/100 is backward compatible with DMA/66, DMA/33, and other existing DMA devices to save the need to upgrade current EIDE/IDE drives. (UltraDMA/66 requires a 40-pin 80-conductor cable).
Concurrent PCI allows multiple PCI transfers from PCI master busses to the memory and processor.
Auto Fan Off:
The system fans powers off automatically even in sleep mode. This function reduces both energy consumption and system noise, and is an important feature in implementing silent PC systems.
Dual Function Power Button:
Pushing the power button for less than 4 seconds when the system is in the working state places the system into one of two states: sleep mode or soft-off mode, depending on the BIOS or OS setting(See PWR Button < 4 Secs in 4.5 Power Menu). When the power button is pressed for more than 4 seconds, the system enters the soft-off mode regardless of the BIOS setting.
Fan Status Monitoring and Alarm:
To prevent system overheat and system damage, the CPU and system fans can be monitored for RPM and failure. All fans are set for its normal RPM range and alarm thresholds.
Power LED (requires ACPI OS support): The power LED indicates the system status.
Remote Ring-On (requires modem): This allows a computer to be turned on remotely through an internal or external modem. With this benefit on-hand, users can access vital information from their computers anywhere.
Temperature Monitoring and Alert: CPU temperature is monitored by the ASUS ASIC through the CPU’s internal thermal diode (on Pentium III and Celeron) to prevent system overheat and system damage.
Voltage Monitoring and Alert:
System voltage levels are monitored to ensure stable voltage to critical motherboard components. Voltage specifications are more critical for future processors, so monitoring is necessary to ensure proper system configuration and management.
Chassis Intrusion Detection:
Supports chassis-intrusion monitoring through the ASUS ASIC. A chassis intrusion event is kept in memory on battery power for more protection.
