AsusTEK Computer P2B-F Motherboard
The ASUS P2B-F
is carefully designed for the demanding PC
user who wants advanced features processed by the fastest CPU.
•••••••••••••Multi-Speed: Supports Intel Pentium® III
(450MHz and faster), Pentium® II
(233MHz to 450MHz), and CeleronTM (266MHz and faster)
Intel AGPset: Features Intel’s 440BX AGPset with I/O
subsystems and front-side
bus (FSB) platform, which boosts the traditional 66MHz
external bus speed to 100MHz.
Multi-Cache: Supports processors with 512, 128, or 0KB
Pipelined Burst Level 2 cache.
PC100 Memory Support: Equipped with four DIMM sockets to
support Intel PC100-compliant SDRAMs (8, 16, 32, 64, 128, or
256MB) up to 1024MB. These new SDRAMs are necessary to meet
the critical enhanced 100MHz bus speed
Peripheral Wake Up: Supports Modem
wake up, keyboard wake
up, and LAN card wake up functions from sleep or soft-off mode.
Thermal Sensor Connector with Optional Sensor: Accurately
detects the CPU temperature with the ASUS Smart Fan or the
Intel boxed processor heatsink with fan when connected to an
PC Health Monitoring (optional): Provides an easier way to
examine and manage system status information, such as CPU
and system voltages, temperatures,
and fan status through the onboard hardware ASIC and the
bundled LDCM by Intel or PC Probe from ASUS.
AGP Slot: Supports an Accelerated Graphics Port card for
high performance, component level interconnect targeted at
3D graphical display applications using a 1X or 2X mode bus.
SB-LinkTM: Features Creative’s SB-LinkTM, allowing SB16
compatibility, using Intel’s PC-PCI DMA and serialized IRQ
protocols, to AWE64D or compatible PCI audio cards.
SMBus: Features the System Management Bus interface, which
is used to physically transport commands and information
between SMBus devices.
PCI & ISA Expansion Slots: Provides five 32-bit PCI and two
16-bit ISA slots.
One ISA slot is shared with a PCI slot.
Multi-I/O: Provides two high-speed UART compatible serial
ports and one parallel port with EPP and ECP capabilities.
UART2 can also be directed from COM2
to the Infrared Module for wireless connections.
UltraDMA/33 Bus Master IDE: Comes with an onboard PCI Bus
Master IDE controller with two connectors that support four
IDE devices in two channels, supports
UltraDMA/33, PIO Modes 3 and 4 and Bus Master IDE DMA Mode
2, and supports Enhanced IDE devices, such as Tape Backup
and CD-ROM, and LS-120 drives.
