GIGABYTE GA-K8NXP-9 - AMD
Athlon64 & PCI Express
With the launch of NVIDIA nForce4 family chipset, GIGABYTE Technology unveils
its hefty high-performance 8-Sigma (8S) series motherboard - GA-K8NXP-9. The
GA-K8NXP-9 belongs to the 8S family of top performance motherboards, delivering
revolutionary technology like PCI-Express Graphics interface, Serial ATA II, NV
firewall, and powerful AMD Athlon64FX/ 64 processor support. This platform
offers unbeatable superior stability and functionality unsurpassed by any other
nForce-based solutions to suffice the desire of every power user.
High speed, solid power and maximum stability mean that the GIGABYTE's latest
8S GA-K8NXP-9 is definitely the way to go for gamers, PC geeks and consumers
alike! The 8S represents 8 innovative and beneficial technologies which include
Processor, Memory, Dual Power System, Storage, Security, Peripheral, Networking,
The leading-edge performance and unparallel technology of the 8th
generation AMD AthlonTM64 FX processor has built its strength on the well-known
AMD64 framework which consisted of 64-bit computing platform, HyperTransport
Technology, and integrated memory controller. With improved 1 GHz HyperTransport
interface and dual channel DDR400, the innovative processor design ensures
superior performance on mission critical business applications.
Athlon64FX/ 64 achieves the milestone for desktop computing with the
CPU-integrated memory controller. This platform supports dual channel DDR400
memory architecture with high bandwidth of up to 6.4GB/s and shorter memory
accessing latency thus delivering the greatest memory performance.
Along with enhanced performance is additional system stability
with the GIGABYTE Dual Power System (D.P.S.). D.P.S. is a revolutionary
six-phase power circuit designed to withstand varying electrical current levels,
ensuring future processor upgrades. This design ensures a more secure and stable
platform than ever before.
For improved networking, Dual
Gigabit LAN provides simultaneous WAN and LAN connection at a blazing fast speed
of up to 1,000 Mbps. The addition of 802.11g wireless LAN solution provides a
more flexible networking connection.
This platform supports reliable storage solution for enhanced data protection
and data accessing performance. Serial ATA II is firstly introduced in this
platform to provide blazingly 3Gb/s bus bandwidth thus higher disk performance.
The NVIDIA RAID allows multi-disk designs to be set up as RAID 0,1,0+1 based on
users' priority of protection/ performance. This NVIDIA RAID function makes the
RAID even more accessible by introducing the innovative windows-based
Revolutionary PCI Express interface provides scalable bandwidth for
multi-purpose usage. PCI-E x16 interface delivers the utmost graphics
experience; PCI-E x1 interface delivers twice the bandwidth of PCI interface up
to 250MB/s for new generation I/O peripheral devices. The brand new IEEE 1394b
interface that features data transferring speed up to 800Mbps for digital audio/
video appliances, double the speed of previous IEEE 1394a interface.
The combination of NV Firewall & Norton Internet Security delivers
complete solution for system security in the thriving networking environment.
This overall package provides the solid protection against hackers, viruses, and
privacy infringements without the scarifying of system performance. Utilizing
ActiveArmor hardware engine, the NVIDIA firewall fully protect the system from
intruders while delivers the highest system performance.
Several unique software elements which are easy to use and focused on making
computing both simple, straightforward, and safe. It includes Download Center
for on-line driver installation, M.I.T., S.O.S., M.I.B.2, EasyTune5 for
overclocking, and Xpress Recovery for safe recovery and backups.
