The ASUS P4V800D-X, supporting VIA PT880 Ultra/8237R+ chipsets, is comparable to the Intel 915PE/ICH7R-based boards. It is a great solution for high-end peripheral connection and robust processing power.
The performance of the ASUS P4V800D-X, with 800MHz FSB and dual-channel DDR 400, rivals those of Intel 915-based solutions. The exclusive circuitry design further allows the next-generation Prescott CPU to run smoothly on a VIA platform.The ASUS P4V800D delivers the lastest technology and reliable performance at an incredible pice.
Intel FSB800 and Hyper-Threading Technology
Leveraging the VIA PT880 Ultra chipset to support 3.4 GH+ Intel P4 and next generation Prescott CPU on 800 MHz FSB, Intel Hyper-Threading technology, Dual channel 400 memory, the P4V800D-X delivers a full-value, high-performance solution for today's most demanding tasks.
Dual-channel DDR technology doubles the bandwidth of your system memory and hence boost the system performance to out perform any memory existing solutions in the market. System bottlenecks are eliminated with balanced architecture and peak bandwidths up to 6.4GB/s.
AGP8X (AGP 3.0) is the next generation VGA interface specification that enables enhanced graphics performance with high bandwidth up to 2.12GB/s.
The VIA 8237R+ south bridge enables users to build Maximum 2 SATA hard disk as an RAID 0, 1 array, and the graphical user interface of utility provides an easy way to configure and manage disk drives or disk arrays connected.
PCI Express is the latest I/O interconnect technology that will replace the existing PCI. With a bus bandwidth 4 times higher than that of AGP 8X interface, PCI Express x16 bus performs much better than AGP 8X in applications such as 3D gaming. PCI Express x1 also outperforms PCI interface with its exceptional high bandwidth up to 500MB/s. The high speed PCI Express interface creates new usages on desktop PCs e.g., Gigabit LAN, 1394b, and high-speed RAID systems.
Serial ATA ports
Serial ATA is the next generation ATA specification that provides scalable performance for today and tomorrow. With up to 150MB/s data transfer rate, Serial ATA is faster than current Parallel ATA, while providing 100% software compatibility.
S/PDIF-out on Back I/O Port
The P4V800D's S/PDIF out function turns your computer into a high-end entertainment system with digital connectivity to powerful speaker systems.

8 USB 2.0 ports supports
USB 2.0 is the latest connectivity standard for next generation components and peripherals. Backwards compatible with current USB 1.1 peripherals, USB 2.0 delivers transfer speeds up to 40 times faster at 480Mb/s, for easy connectivity and ultra-fast data transfers.
ASIS Q-Fan Technology
ASUS Q-Fan technology intelligently adjusts fan speeds according to system loading to ensure quiet, cool and efficient operation
C.P.R.(CPU Parameter Recall)
When the system hangs due to overclocking failure, there is no need to open the case to clear CMOS data. Just simply restart the system, the BIOS would show the previous setting and then users can amend the CPU setting again.
ASUS EZ Flash
With ASUS EZ Flash, you can update BIOS before entering operating system. No more DOS-based flash utility and bootable diskette required.
CrashFree BIOS 2
Whenever BIOS gets corrupted, ASUS CrashFree BIOS 2 allows users to reboot the computer and perform an smart auto-recovery procedure through the motherboard support CD.
