ECS Unveils Two NVIDIA SLI Solution Motherboards at Computex Taipei 2005







Taipei, Taiwan, June 1st, 2005 –Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) is showcasing two NVIDIA SLI solution motherboards, the KN1 SLI Extreme and PN1 SLI Extreme, at Computex Taipei 2005 in Taiwan.



These and other exciting, innovative ECS products are on display at booth F242, Hall 2 in the Taipei World Trade Center.



The two Extreme series boards incorporate advanced dual-core and 64-bit technology. Their new, improved computing capabilities, reflect a shift to better responsiveness and higher multithreaded throughput.



KN1 SLI Extreme supports Socket 939 Athlon 64 FX and Athlon 64 CPU/System Bus 2000 MT/s. Designed for the most demanding enthusiasts and gamers, the KN1 SLI Extreme provides exciting features, including Scalable D.G.E., NVIDIA nTuneTM and 8-channel audio.



Scalable D.G.E. produces increased, supercharged 3D graphics performance and supports simultaneously display on up to four devices while leveraging NVIDIA SLI technology, enabling two connected SLI-ready graphics cards to work jointly and efficiently to enhance overall graphics performance up to 70 percent. Users can also take advantage of the PCI Express architecture by plugging in any single PCI Express graphics card.



For superior performance, NVIDIA nTuneTM is provided to quickly and easily optimise PC performance by automatically detecting applications and setting safe overclocking. These unique capabilities enable the KN1 SLI Extreme to operate at speeds up to 2 GHz. Better yet, 8-channel audio is accommodated for a premium home theater experience.



Besides excellent generation of visual and sound effects, the KN1 SLI Extreme brings unmatched PC storage, security and overall system performance, engineered with the latest technology for greater storage and higher transfer rate.



eSATA and Port Multiplier allow expanded drive scalability to storage systems; SATAII and NCQ double the transfer speed up to 3.0Gb/s and enables efficient retrieval of data.



The PN1 SLI Extreme, ECS' NVIDIA SLI solution motherboard, supports LGA775 socket Pentium 4 and Pentium D CPU, FSB 1066 MHz, DDR2 667 memory architecture as well as high-performance RAID (0, 1, 0+1, 5).



Besides featuring NVIDIA nTuneTM 8-channel audio, eSATA, Port Multiplier, SATAII and NCQ, NVIDIA SLI technology can also be leveraged on this Intel platform, delivering high-performance 3D graphics. Better yet, NVIDIA nTuneTM enables the PN1 SLI Extreme to operate at speeds up to 1.2 GHz.



Availability



The KN1 SLI Extreme will be available in June; the PN1 SLI Extreme will be available in July.

ECS Unveils ATI’s Multi-GPU CrossFireTM Ready Motherboards



at Computex Taipei 2005




ECS Launches Ultimate Enthusiast Class AMD and Intel-Based ATI CrossFire™ Ready Platforms



Taipei, Taiwan, June 1st, 2005 – Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) is showcasing its ATI CrossFireTM-Ready motherboards, PA1 Extreme and KA1 Extreme, at Computex Taipei 2005 in Taiwan.



ECS is displaying these platforms and an exciting line of other breakthrough products at booth F242, Hall 2 in the Taipei World Trade Center.



Built from the ground up for gaming enthusiasts, the Extreme series PA1 Extreme and KA1 Extreme motherboards are built on the latest ATI Radeon XPress 200 CrossFire chipsets for both AMD and Intel, supporting ATI CrossFireTM technology and delivering an unprecedented graphics experience. CrossFireTM harnesses the power of two graphics cards to render high-definition 3D gaming



Based on ATI’s CrossFireTM technology, ECS has developed and enhanced the boards with an exciting feature: Scalable D.G.E., which produces increased, supercharged 3D graphics performance and supports simultaneously display on up to four devices. Scalable D.G.E. also leverages ATI CrossFireTM technology, enabling two PCI Express-based graphics cards connected together to work effectively in tandem to enhance overall graphics performance. Users can also take advantage of the PCI Express architecture by plugging in any single PCI Express graphics card.



The KA1 Extreme supports Socket 939 Athlon 64 FX/Athlon 64 CPU and System Bus 2000 MT/s. Based on AMD64 technology, the AMD Athlon 64 processor family brings unparalleled multimedia performance and high addressable memory. It not only produces superior visuals and sound effects for an incredible gaming experience, but it also provides unmatched PC storage, security and overall system performance. Engineered with the latest technology, the KA1 Extreme delivers faster processing speed, greater storage and higher transfer rates.



Additionally, advanced dual-core and 64-bit technology is incorporated to increase computing capabilities which reflects a shift to better responsiveness and higher multithreaded throughput. eSATA and Port Multiplier allow cost-effective and expanded drive scalability to storage systems. SATAII and NCQ double the transfer speed up to 3.0Gb/s and enable efficient retrieval of data. Moreover, the board accommodates unique I.O.C. (Instant Overclocking Controller), which intelligently detects system load and instantly boosts frequency to enhance overall performance.



The PA1 Extreme supports LGA775 socket Pentium 4 as well as Pentium D CPUs and FSB 1066 MHz. Also Engineered to support all the exceptional features mentioned above, the PA1 Extreme supports DDR2 667 memory architecture and high-performance RAID as well.
