Supporting the revolutionary AMD AthlonTM64 FX processor, the GA-K8NNXP-940 brings new levels of performance and features to the desktop platform. The brand new AMD AthlonTM64 FX processor is furnished with unprecedented framework consisting of AMD's 64-bit computing platform, HyperTransport Technology, and dual channel DDR400 memory architecture to boost the overall performance. Accompanied with the innovative designs of AthlonTM64 FX, the advanced NVIDIA nForce3 platform processor and Gigabyte's unique technology also contribute to the functionality and stability of this platform. One of the added features includes the patented Gigabyte Dual Power System (DPS), aimed to enhance the computing power and steadiness of the system. The industry's first IEEE 1394b controller from T.I. is integrated for the high-speed interface of future Audio/Video devices. Another feature is the Dual LAN, equipped for establishing the traffic between two separate networks to ensure rapid transfer of data from WAN to LAN. The IEEE1394b, Serial ATA and IDE RAID provide superior input/output performance and data protection. Gigabyte's GA-K8NNXP-940 definitely represents the uppermost platform for today's computers.
AMD AthlonTM64 FX Computing Platform
Powered by nForceTM3 platform processors, GA-K8NNXP-940 supports the brand new 8th generation AMD AthlonTM64 processor to deliver a high performance platform with dual support for 32-bit applications and increasing 64-bit computing needs.
A high-speed, low latency, point-to-point link designed to provide excellent interconnect for computation and networking. This Technology not only provides more bandwidth but also reduces the I/O bottlenecks and, consequently, greatly enhances the system performance.
Dual Channel DDR architecture & Registered memory support
The AMD AthlonTM 64 FX improves the memory performance by integrating a DDR memory controller into the processor. With the integrated memory controller, this platform supports dual channel DDR400 memory architecture and delivers high capacity of 4GB Registered memory and high bandwidth up to 6.4GB/s to ensure greatest memory performance.
Superb bandwidth AGP 8X graphics interface
Featuring AGP 8x (AGP 3.0) the new generation VGA interface specification, this platform delivers enhanced graphics performance with high bandwidth up to 2.12GB/s. Allowing users to have a more realistic graphics experiences while gaming or movie watching.
Dual Power Sysytem K8 (DPS K8)
Specially designed for AthlonTM64 platform, the Dual Power System delivers a total of 6-phase power circuit to provide more solid and durable power supply for the new generation AMD platform. Ensuring a more secure and stable platform than ever before.
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 function for extra performace enhancement and data protection.
GigaRAID IDE RAID Controller
Supporting RAID (0, 1, 0+1), JBOD function and ATA133 interface, GigaRAID Controller delivers completely solution for storage interface to increase fault tolerance, improve data access performance and provides additional interface for more IDE devices.
6 Channel Audio with UAJ
With the innovative function of Universal Audio Jack (UAJ) of ALC 658 AC97 codec, this platform provides superior 6-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 2003 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.
