Albatron Technology Launches PX845G Pro II series motherboard.
First Intel Based Chipset Motherboard to Support DDR266 Memory and FSB 533MHz, PX845G Pro II
Taipei, Taiwan, 21 May 2002 - Albatron Technologies, Inc, a leading innovator and developer of Motherboard, Graphics accelerator adapters, and Large Screen Display, today announced the launch of the Intel 845G/ICH4 chipset based motherboard PX845G Pro II, the first Intel chipset based motherboard to support integrated 3D graphics engine, DDR266 memory and FSB 533MHz for Intel Pentium® 4 Processor.
PX845G Pro II is based on the latest chipset form Intel, the 845G/ICH4. Supporting DDR200/266 memory and a full range of 400/533MHz Front Side Bus Intel Pentium® 4, and Celeron® socket 478 processors, the 845G/ICH4 provides lightning fast access to Host, system memory, I/O and delivers more application performance than rival Pentium 4 chipset platforms. The 845G links with ICH4 provides very fast data transfer rate due to the connection through 845G/ICH4's high bandwidth Hub-Link Hub Architecture, up to 256Mb/Sec. Other key features include FSB 533, integrated extreme 3D graphics engine, AGP4X, ATA-100, and DDR266 support, as well as integrated six USB 2.0 ports, which is 40x faster than USB 1.0, LPC bus, and integrated 10/100Mbps Ethernet and Home PNA, 6 channel AC-97 audio and MC-97 modem link for easy expansion.
With the advanced design, layout and use of the top performance components, Albatron's PX845G Pro II is capable to support DDR266 as well as overclock the memory bus to support DDR333 and even higher memory clock. The PX845G Pro II also integrate the latest and greatest features in motherboard technology, which include FSB 533MHz support, 6 USB 2.0/1.1 ports, Promise ATA133 RAID controller for RAID 0, 1 support, Intel LAN, Intel extreme 3D graphics engine, BIOS Mirror, Voice Genies, adjustable Vcore, Vcc, FSB by 1MHz increment in BIOS, and 6 channel audio, is designed to provide the highest performance and the most expandable chipset solution for the latest 533MHz, 0.13 micron process Intel Pentium® 4 processor. It also supports the latest memory technology, DDR 266(PC2100) memory module. PX845G Pro II supports 3 DIMM slots, up to 2.0GB DDR SDRAM. It also has 6 PCI, 1 CNR, Intel Application Accelerator and 1 AGP 4x port. Due to the features and the stability of this board, it will be able to reach novel user as well as power user.
6 Channel audio:
The Albatron's 6 channel audio is design based on Realtek's ALC650, which is an 18-bit, full duplex AC'97 2.2 compatible stereo audio CODEC designed for PC multimedia systems. The ALC650 incorporates proprietary converter technology to achieve a high SNR, greater than 90 dB. The ALC650 AC'97 CODEC supports multiple CODEC extensions with independent variable sampling rates up to 6 channel and built-in 3D effects (emulation of 26 sound environments, and 5-band equalizer). The ALC650 also supports an AC'97 2.2 compliant SPDIF out function which allows easy connection from the PC to consumer electronic products, such as AC3 decoder/speaker and mini disk.
