With a feature set second to none, the Asus A8N-SLI is a highly integrated NVIDIA nForce4 motherboard with an impressive set of features ideal for high-end tweaking. The ATX design affords better airflow to the processor, along with an innovative heatpipe design that transfers heat to a small thin-finned cooler around the CPU socket; this is supported by the airflow from an adjacent heatsink and fan assembly. Heat dangers from overclocking are much less of a problem with this excellent, quiet, system.
This innovative board takes full advantage of SLI technology, supporting a maximum of 4 GB DDR RAM with performance potential nearly double that of a single graphics card. The back panel sports dual Gigabit Ethernet ports courtesy of state-of-the-art Marvell controllers in combination with NVIDIA's built in Gigabit MAC with NV Firewall and ActiveArmor intrusion detection features.
This powerful and feature-rich board fully exploits SLI’s myriad opportunities afforded, and is an excellent offering as we’ve come to expect from ASUS.
NVIDIA nForce4 SLI Chipset The NVIDIA nForce4 SLI media and communications processor (MCP) delivers unbelievable graphics performance with NVIDIA SLI technology and cutting-edge features including SATA with RAID support and NVIDIA Gigabit Ethernet with TCP/IP acceleration and NV firewall. The NVIDIA nForce4 SLI chipset ensures maximum PC performance with future-proofing features for the demands of tomorrow.
Ultimate Gaming Performance with NVIDIA SLI Technology NVIDIA SLI (Scalable Link Interface) takes advantage of the increased bandwidth of the PCI Express bus architecture and features intelligent hardware and software enabling a pair of GPUs to deliver earth-shattering, scalable graphics power, approaching twice the performance in certain applications.
AI Cool-Pipe AI Cool Pipe provides heat dissipation performance comparable to that of cooling fans without annoying fan noise for whisper-quiet operation and low system temperatures.
Dual SATA RAID The nForce4 SLI Chipset and onboard Silicon Image Sil3114 provide a great solution to your RAID requirements by supporting RAID 0/1/0+1 on 4 SATA 3Gb/s ports and 4 additional SATA interfaces allowing RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 1+0 and RAID 5 respectively.
Dual Gigabit LAN The integrated dual Gigabit LAN design allows a PC to serve as a network gateway for managing traffic between two separate networks. Dual Gigabit LAN means rapid data transfers from WAN to LAN without any added arbitration or latency.
AI NET2 ASUS AI NET2 remotely detects cable connections when powering up. Any faulty connections within 100 meters will be reported at an accuracy of up to 1 meter.
