Default AOpen presents world’s first ATX Pentium M motherboard

AOpen Inc., a multinational electronic components partner for the international info tech (IT) enterprises and consumers, will present the world’s first ATX Pentium M motherboard -- i915Ga-HFS -- at Computex Taipei, May 31 – June 4, 2005.

The motherboard integrates Socket 479 Pentium M (Dothan) CPU, Intel’s 915G desktop chipset, and ICH6 I/O controller to become the world’s first hybrid model with combined features of powerful chipset performance and energy-saving CPU, which generates less heat and noise than desktop CPUs.
The 915G chipset and ICH6 enable Pentium M to maximize its performance to its extreme while generating less heat and noise and consuming less power.
The first ATX Pentium M motherboard
It is the first ATX Pentium M motherboard ever developed in the world, according to Edward Chen, channel manager of the company. Pentium M processors were originally designed by Intel to drive notebook PCs, AOpen made an innovative and bold move by driving a motherboard with a notebook processor.
Pentium M processors are more power efficient and generate less heat and noise, making it suitable to be installed in notebook PCs. AOpen’s design of a Pentium M on a motherboard is to take advantage of these features. This is an innovative product development concept.

In an attempt to offer powerful high definition audio and video functions, the motherboard is built with Intel’s 915G chipset. AOpen’s engineers make the most out of the chipset’s functionality by developing a thoughtful I/O shield (photo attached) on the rear panel.
The neatly designed I/O shield combines the 7.1-channel audio jack, DVI connector, the D-sub port for CRT video monitor, S-Video connector, the YPbPr port, PCI-e Gigabit LAN connector, and four USB 2.0 ports. The S-Video connector and the YPbPr port enable a user to connect the motherboard to HDTV.

According to AOpen engineers, i915Ga-HFS main board takes advantage of the latest technology by Intel that allows the board to support dual channel DDR-II memory modules of 533/400 MHz.
The system is designed to support four Serial ATA devices (hard drives) and two Ultra DMA 100/66/33 devices.

Summary of features
• A summary of the motherboard’s features:
• Fastest Pentium M motherboard
• High Definition video/audio quality
• Fast transfer speed of storage devices such as hard drives
• Highest network transfer speed
• High performance graphics for games and on-board VGA (Intel GMA900)
• Easy consumer electronic product connection
• Silent system of less than 25dB
• Flexible expansion PCI-e x 16/ PCI-e/ PCI
• BIOS SpeedStep support
