Supports AMD Socket 939 Athlon 64 X2 / Athlon 64FX/Athlon 64
A8N5X supports AMD 939-pin Athlon 64 X2 / Athlon 64 FX/ Athlon 64 processors which is based on 64-bit architecture. It features 2000/1600 MT/s HyperTransport Bus and dual-channel un-buffered DDR400 memory support.
NVIDIA nForce™4 deliver unmatched PC security and unbelievable PC performance. Get it all: PCI Express for AMD platforms and cutting-edge features including SATA and NVIDIA nForce Security – protection from spyware and hackers. NVIDIA nForce4 ensure maximum PC performance while futureproofing your PC for demands of tomorrow.
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 in applications such as 3D gaming. The PCI Express x1 interface creates new usages on desktop PCs e.g., TV tuner, 1394b, and high-speed RAID systems.
Precision Tweaker is designed for serious overclockers. It offers ways to raise system performance inch-by-inch and step-by-step to achieve maximum performance! This is about getting the most out of your machine, and taking pride in your customized computer. Precision Tweaker provides overclocking options for all major parts of the system: CPU, Memory, PCI-Express, and Front Side Bus.
Take control of how much power is going into the memory modules. ASUS gives you 9-step voltage control to the DIMM
Find out "exactly" how much power your CPU needs. Fine-tune it with 0.0125 volts at a time!
Explore the frequency options of your PCI-Express graphics card
SFS (Stepless Frequency Selection) allow FSB tuning from 200MHz up to 400MHz at 1MHz increments.
Boost performance when you need it the most!
Applications such as 3D games and video editing demand a huge chunk of system resource.
Inject "nitrous oxide" into your CPU! The patented AI NOS™ (Non-delay Overclocking System) technology intelligently detects system load and automatically boosts performance for the most demanding tasks. Unlike other dynamic overclocking techniques, AI NOS™ reacts much faster to satisfy your unending need for speeds.
PEG (PCI-Express Graphics) Link lets you to raise GPU and VGA memory throughput via the motherboard BIOS the same way system bus and memory bus are tweaked. ASUS engineers carefully fine-tuned the parameters for PCI-Express cards to provide system stability during high-speed graphics operation. Furthermore, with two PCI-Express slots, the A8N-SLI is able to activate PEG Link on both graphics
ASUS AI NET2 remotely detects cable connection the second you turn on the system, and any faulty connections are reported back up to 100 meters at 1 meter accuracy.
NV Firewall provides professional-grade traffic inspection capabilities, instanton protection, advanced management features and is easy to use and setup via a user friendly wizard.
AI Audio (8-channel Audio)
A8N5X has eight channels of audio output with Coaxial and optical S/PDIF connector designed to maximize your auditory experience. AI Audio also provides "Jack Sensing" and "UAJ" functions. "Jack Sensing" automatically detects and notifies user of any inappropriate connection. "UAJ" function enables both input and output functions each jacks, thus eliminates the confusion of Line-in, Line-out and Mic jacks once and for all!
ASUS Q-Fan technology intelligently adjusts both CPU fan speeds according to system loading to ensure quiet, cool and efficient operation.
Universal PCI-E Slot
The ASUS Universal PCI-E Slot gives the users freedom and flexibility on the utilization of the PCI-E interface. With Universal PCI-E Slot, user is able to plug in an additional PCI-E graphics card to have dual VGA on a single motherboard! This special design supports up to 1GB/s in bandwidth, and it will also take in most of the PCI-E devices out there!
Max. 10 USB 2.0 ports supports
USB 2.0 is the latest connectivity standard for next generation components and peripherals.
Backwards compatible with current USB 1.1 peripherals, USB 2.0 delivers transfer speeds up to 40 times faster at 480Mb/s, for easy connectivity and ultra-fast data transfers.
The multi-language BIOS allows you to select the language of your choice from the available options. The localized BIOS setup menu helps you configure your system easier and faster.
ASUS CrashFree BIOS2
The CrashFree BIOS2 feature now includes the BIOS auto-recovery function in a support CD.
Users can reboot their system through the support CD when a bootable disk is not available,
and go through the simple BIOS auto-recovery process.
ASUS motherboards now enable users to enjoy this protection feature without the need to pay for an optional ROM.
S/PDIF-out on Back I/O Port
This motherboard provides convenient connectivity to external home theater audio systems via an optical or coaxial S/PDIF-out (SONY-PHILIPS Digital Interface) jack. It allows to transfer digital audio without converting to analog format and keeps the best signal quality.
