KM51PV mainboard blasts off with GeForce 6150 GPU
Albatron Technology recently announced its new KM51PV mainboard
based on Nvidia Geforce 6150, nForce 430 with nVidia Pure Video technology
chipset. During the design and development process, there was much speculation
on how this new nVidia chipset would impact the endless amount of graphics
information that needs to be processed during animation. However, there was no
way of being certain until the first test results were compiled.
It was middle 2005 when Albatron engineers began testing its first KM51PV
prototype mainboard with the results soon to follow. After the first data began
to trickle in, the engineers were beside themselves: amazed, astonished and
speechless. An incredible graphics innovation was emerging with huge
ramifications for the integration MB industry.
Later versions of the KM51PV board were recently tested with an Athlon 64 939
3600+ CPU, DDR 400 memory (512 MB). The systems were found to be capable of
performing at a rate of many times that of a traditional integration MB! The 3D
Mark 2005 test results were astounding, almost matching the scores of 6200 with
Another outstanding feature on this chipset is Pure Video Technology.
PureVideo combines the high quality DVD and MPEG-playback with rich Dolby
Digital surround sound. Also featuring hardware-accelerated video on all
Microsoft DirectX-compatible graphics processors, the NVIDIA PureVideo Decoder
delivers unmatched color fidelity and smooth DVD, video, and TV viewing. KM51PV
is pure Video ready, pure video can be enabled on KM51PV with an optional
PureVideo DVD decoder utility.
The KM51PV has a smaller, space saving micro ATX form factor. In addition,
Albatron managed to squeeze in many features, including PCI E 16x, PCI E 1 x,
DVI connector for latest LCD monitor, TV out, and HD TV ready connector,
supports 720P and 1080i, (optional HDTV cable required). This board also
supports multi-display. It can connect TV+CRT, TV+LCD, CRT+LCD, or LCD+LCD. It
is ideal for Digital home solution.
At side from all these functions KM51PV
can support latest technology like AMD Athlon 64 X2 (Dual core processor), SATA
II, PCI Express graphics card, and USB 2.0. This full function pack board will
hit the market soon.
