Albatron Socket-754 KM51-series motherboards kick off Chinese New Year
Press release; Jessie Shen, DIGITIMES [Wednesday 4 January 2006]

Albatron today announced the availability of its KM51 motherboard series, first unveiled in December 2005, for the AMD Socket-754 platform. The two motherboards support Nvidia’s latest-generation IGP (Integrated Graphics Processor) chipsets – the KM51PV-754 equipped with the GeForce 6150/430 chipset, and the KM51G-754 with the GeForce 6100/410.

The chipsets used in Albatron’s KM51-series boards accesses up to 128MB of system memory, said the company, adding that with DX 9.0c and Shader Model 3.0 standards, the KM51 series will be able to tackle the most popular games on the market, such as Age of Empires III and World of Warcraft.

The KM51PV-754 comes with some of the most advanced digital video facilities and features Nvidia’s Pure Video Technology and a video encoder/decoder providing the equivalent functionality and clarity of a high-end DVD player, said Albatron, adding that Pure Video was only seen before in middle-range to high-end graphics cards.

The KM51PV-754 is also fully ready for the future of broadcasted digital TV and supports the newest trends in HDTV, claims the company. With integrated MPEG 2 and WMV9 decoders, the motherboard supports high-resolution 1080i (1920×1080) video, which is more than four times higher than conventional TVs, said Albabron, adding that the KM51PV-754 will have Y/Pb/Pr (Component Video) and DVI connectors.
