The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
Article code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product code if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
Category :
The motherboard or mainboard is the component that connects all the different parts of your computer. Often it has some integrated components like a sound card, enabling your computer to play sound, or a network card, to connect your computer to the network. The standard form factor (size) for motherboards is ATX, you need at least a midi-tower to fit one of those in. Micro-ATX motherboards are often more complete and have more onboard devices, like a video board and fit in smaller cases, but are generally less expandable.
Data-sheet quality: created/standardized by Icecat
The quality of the data-sheets can be on several levels:
only logistic data imported: we have only basic data imported from a supplier, a data-sheet is not yet created by an editor.
created by ASUS: a data-sheet is imported from an official source from a manufacturer. But the data-sheet is not yet standardized by an Icecat editor.
created/standardized by Icecat: the data-sheet is created or standardized by an Icecat editor.

Supported memory types*
Types of memory which can be used with the product.
Memory slots type*
A memory slot, also known as a memory socket or RAM slot, is what allows computer memory (RAM) to be inserted into the computer. Depending on the motherboard, there will usually be 2 to 4 memory slots (sometimes more on high-end motherboards). The most common types of RAM are SDRAM and DDR for desktop computers and SODIMM for laptop computers, each having various types and speeds.
Number of memory slots
Supported memory clock speeds*
Memory clock speed is the time it takes for a computer to complete basic operations. It refers to the computer's processing speed and is measured in hertz. It is however not such a reliable measure of a computer's speed as it doesn't take into account other factors like RAM and cache size.
333, 400 MHz
Maximum internal memory
The maximum internal memory which is available in the product.
2 GB
Processor family*
A family of processors is a group of processors produced by one company over a short period of time e.g. Intel Pentium processors.
Compatible processor series*
A processor which is compatible with this device, belongs to a 'series' which is part of 'family' e.g Celeron D, Celeron G, Celeron M, or, in some cases, is the same as 'family'.
Celeron, Pentium 4
Processor socket*
Mechanical component(s) that provides mechanical and electrical connections between a microprocessor and a printed circuit board (PCB). This allows the processor to be replaced without soldering.
Socket 478
Internal I/O
USB 2.0 connectors*
The end of a cable with a USB 2.0 connector. USB 2.0 was released in April 2000 (now called "Hi-Speed"), adding higher maximum signaling rate of 480 Mbit/s (effective throughput up to 35 MB/s or 280 Mbit/s), in addition to the "USB 1.x Full Speed" signaling rate of 12 Mbit/s. USB 2.0 connectors are usually colored black.
Supported hard disk drive interfaces*
The type of interfaces that can be used with the hard disk drive e.g. parallel ATA (PATA), serial ATA (SATA), SCSI.

Back Panel I/O Ports
USB 2.0 ports quantity*
USB 2.0 ports have a data transmission speed of 480 Mbps, and are backwards compatible with USB 1.1 ports. You can connect all kinds of peripheral devices to them.
Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports quantity*
Number of Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports (connecting interfaces) in the device. Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports allow a computer to connect to the ethernet.
Serial ports quantity
The number of serial ports in a computer or peripheral. A serial port is a serial communication physical interface through which information transfers in or out one bit at a time. The term "serial port" usually identifies hardware more or less compliant to the RS-232 standard, intended to interface with a modem or with a similar communication device. In modern computers and peripherals, serial ports have largely been replaced by USBs and other interfaces.
PS/2 ports quantity*
The number of PS/2 connectors for keyboards and mice. Its name comes from the IBM Personal System/2.
Back Panel I/O Ports
Parallel ports quantity
The number of parallel ports. Parallel ports, also known as printer ports, are a type of interface found on computers (personal and otherwise) for connecting peripherals. In computing, a parallel port is a parallel communication physical interface. Parallel ports were common in the 1980s and '90s (mostly conforming to industry standard IEEE 1284) but are now being replaced by USBs and other ports.
VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity *
Number of VGA (D-Sub) ports (connecting interfaces) in the device. The VGA (D-Sub) connector is a 15 pin connector between a computer and a monitor. It was first introduced in 1987 by IBM.
Networking features
Integrated 10/100 Mbps LAN controller + Realtek PHY
Component for *
What this product is used as a part of (component for).
Motherboard chipset family *
The category of motherboard chipset e.g. Intel, AMD.
Motherboard form factor *
Design of the motherboard (ATX, BTX etc).
Audio output channels *
An audio output channel is an electric circuit which acts as a path for a signal produced by a device. A device may have several audio output channels.
Parallel processing technology support
Parallel processing technology is the simultaneous use of more than one CPU or processor core to execute a program or multiple computational threads. Ideally, parallel processing makes programs run faster because there are more engines (CPUs or Cores) running it. In practice, it is often difficult to divide a program in such a way that separate CPUs or cores can execute different portions without interfering with each other. Most computers have just one CPU, but some models have several, and multi-core processor chips are becoming the norm. There are even computers with thousands of CPUs.

BIOS type *
The BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) initializes and tests system hardware components, and loads a bootloader or an operating system from a mass memory device. The BIOS additionally provides abstraction layer for the hardware, i.e. a consistent way for application programs and operating systems to interact with the keyboard, display, and other input/output devices. There are several types of BIOS, including the motherboard ROM BIOS, video BIOS, drive controller BIOS, network adapter BIOS, and SCSI adapter BIOS.
