Elitegroup Computer Systems, Inc. (ECS) has launched its new RoHS-compliant Socket AM2 ATX motherboard with Nvidia nForce 590 SLI chipset.
The ECS KN3 SLI2 motherboard supports AM2 versions of AMD Athlon FX, Athlon 64 X2 dual-core, Athlon 64 and Sempron CPUs and AMD’s all the latest AM2 energy-efficient microprocessors which provides 35W and 65W versions of AM2 processors for increased energy savings. In addition, the new KN3 SLI2 supports dual channel DDR2-533, 667 and 800 SDRAM memory, which boosts the overall system performance.
KN3 SLI2 motherboard with Nvidia nForce 590 SLI chipset delivers dual full-bandwidth PCI-Express GPU support.
The new KN3 SLI2 motherboard is supported by AMD Live and it delivers the complete multimedia power to create and bring this digital media content to all rooms of a home. The new Socket AM2 motherboard has an 8-channel audio codec, plus numerous I/O and storage features.
Socket AM2 from AMD is designed to enable next-generation platform innovations such as AMD Virtualization and high-performance, unbuffered DDR2 memory to the award-winning AMD64 architecture. Additionally, socket AM2 streamlines the work for motherboard manufacturers, while reducing costs through economies of scale, which can provide better products and increase supply chain flexibility.
The KN3 SLI2 motherboard’s graphics is driven by ECS’ Scalable Dual Graphic Engines architecture that leverages Nvidia SLI technology by enabling two SLI graphics cards to work together to generate enhanced 3D graphics. It can also support simultaneous display on up to four display terminals and can even improve performance for single PCIe graphics cards.
The KN3 SLI2 motherboard’s overclocking capability is driven by ECS’ IOC (Instant Overclocking Controller) that enables the system to automatically boost frequency to enhance overall performance. This design would greatly appeal gaming community looking instantly for adjusting system performance to match their needs, making cpu overclocking easier and more secure.
Few other KN3 SLI2 features include a Realtek ALC883 audio codec for 8-channel HD audio and a host of I/Os including 6 x SATAII 3.0 Gb/s, 8 x USB 2.0, Dual Gb Ethernet, RAID 5 support, 2 x S/PDIF (Optical and Coaxial), and 2 x 1394a.
The KN3 SLI2 AM2 motherboard is distributed in India by Cyberstar Infocom and MediaTech India and is available for the price of Rs. 10,250 which includes 1-year warranty.
