ASUS today introduced a new AI Lifestyle Series motherboard ? M2N32-SLI Deluxe ? that provide dual-channel DDR2 support on AMD's latest AM2 processing platform.
Teamed with ASUS-developed Stack Cool fan-less cooling and 8-Phase Power Design, the new motherboards are tailored to offer quiet and reliable systems.
Based on AMD's AM2 Socket processor, the M2N32-SLI Deluxe supports the dual-channel DDR2 architecture to provide higher memory frequency and bandwidth for overall performance improvement over previous AMD CPU platforms.
The motherboard supports dual-graphics card operation to run the most video resource-hungry applications. The M2N32-SLI Deluxe ( NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI MCP chipset) motherboard comes equipped with two PCI Express x16 slots for Nvidia's SLI graphics interface, allowing two identical SLI-applicable graphics cards to run simultaneously.
Compared with dual-PCI Express x8, dual-PCI Express x16 delivers up to a 10% performance hike to boosts image quality along with rendering speed, eliminating the need to lower screen resolutions to attain high quality image.
8-Phase Power design promises steadier power supply for the CPU by generating less heat than conventional power solutions and providing a cool computing environment for stable performance and higher overclocking margin.
With AI Nap , users can instantly "relax" their PCs without terminating current tasks. System will continue to operate at minimum power and noise when users are temporarily away.
To balance system performance and silent computing, AI Gear enables users to choose from profiles to adjust CPU frequency and vCore voltage, minimizing system noise and power consumption.
The M2N32-SLI Deluxe bundled the Array Microphone . While recording, the microphone receives only the sound coming from the reception cone and ignores the sound coming from other directions, eliminating a large number of interferences including neighboring speakers and reverberations. It also features "Echo Cancellation Technology", which eliminates the annoying echo during audio and voice applications.
