A full featured motherboard with plenty of power, the Asus M2N4-SLI is great motherboard for anyone needing to replace or upgrade their system. Equipped with an AMD socket AM2, suitable for Athlon 64 processors, including the X2 and FX series, the M2N4-SLI is more than capable of handling anything you may want to run.
Using the Nvidia nForce 4 SLI chipset, this remarkable card supports SLI Technology which gives you the ability to use 2 graphics cards together for even more graphics power. With all this going on, things could heat up rapidly, but ASUS has really studied the issue of heat and cooling across the motherboard and CPU. Passive heat sinks and a strategic board layout will help you keep cool in the hottest action.
It also includes a gigabit Ethernet port, 5.1 channel onboard sound, and 4 SATA ports. Those four ports let you add multiple hard drives to the system, managed by RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 5, and JBOD. It also has multiple expansion slots to use, including two x16, and two x1 PCIe slots, plus an additional two PCI slots. Build a powerful system, the Asus M2N4-SLI is a foundation.
AMD Socket AM2 This motherboard supports AMD's Socket AM2-based CPUs, including the Athlon 64 X2, Athlon 64 FX and Athlon 64 series. With a 2000MHz system bus using Hyper Transport Technology and support for dual-channel DDR2 RAM, AM2 motherboards form the basis for phenomenal system performance.
NVIDIA nForce 500 SLI Chipset for Performance Gaming NVIDIA nForce 500 SLI MCPs deliver outstanding gaming experiences. Enjoy scalable graphics performance with NVIDIA SLI technology. Other advanced features include SATA 3Gb/s RAID and Gigabit LAN.
Dual-Channel DDR2 800 DDR2 next generation memory technology replaces current DDR memory and provides a walloping performance boost. With support for up to 800MHz DDR2 memory, the ASUS M2N4-SLI delivers fantastic performance in extreme 3D graphics environments and in memory intensive applications.
SATA II with RAID Support The second generation SATA interface delivers up to 300MB/sec transfer speed, doubling that of the first generation Serial ATA. Four SATA II ports support RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 5 and JBOD array for better performance, enhanced data security, and flexible capacity upgrades.
NVIDIA Native Gigabit Ethernet The industry's fastest Gigabit Ethernet performance eliminates network bottlenecks and improves overall system efficiency with FirstPacket technology for lower latency and TCP/IP acceleration for system performance optimization by offloading CPU-intensive packet filtering tasks to hardware.
Coaxial S/PDIF Out This motherboard provides convenient connectivity to external home theater audio systems via a coaxial S/PDIF-out (SONY-PHILIPS Digital Interface) jack, to transfer digital audio without converting to the analog format while keeping the best signal quality.
