Equipped with Gigabit and Ethernet LAN solution, this platform can be applied as network gateway, managing traffic between two separate networks and ensuring rapid transfer of data from WAN to LAN without any added arbitration or latency.
Industry's first IEEE1394b motherboard
This platform is the first motherboard with IEEE1394b FireWire interface from Texas Instruments (TI). With the transfer speed up to 800Mb/s, the new generation IEEE1394b interface further enhances PC connectivity with consumer electronics audio/video (A/V) appliances, and storage peripherals.
Serial ATA with RAID 0.1 function
Serial ATA is the revolutionary ATA interface that provides scalable performance for IDE device. With up to 150MB/s data transfer rate, Serial ATA is faster than current Parallel ATA and delivers superior input/output performance. In addition, the Serial ATA interface is furnished with RAID 0.1, 0+1 (including IDE ATA 133 interface) function for extra performace enhancement and data protection.
The ''6 Dual Deluxe'' enriches the ''6 Dual Technology'' by adding ''RAID Deluxe'' feature, an innovative RAID function which spans from Serial ATA and Parallel ATA133. Empowered by the nForce3 Ultra, the ''RAID Deluxe'' supports up to 6 hard drives (2 serial ATA and 4 ATA133 devices) for RAID 0, 1, 0+1 function. The ''RAID Deluxe'' delivers truly flexibility and high performance to the platform at the same time.
8 Channel Audio with UAJ
With the innovative function of Universal Audio Jack (UAJ) of ALC 850 AC97 codec, this platform provides superior 8-Channel stereo sound enjoyment without the stress of incorrect installation.
GIGABYTE Patent DualBIOSTM
DualBIOSTM prevents BIOS from virus attacks to provide a double security thus assuring the PC stability.
Norton Internet SecurityTM Included
Norton Internet SecurityTM 2004 is the essential protection from viruses, hackers, and privacy threats. It protects user during the online activities such as e-mailing, shopping, banking, and game playing.
