Asustek announces P5NT WS motherboard
Press release, September 17; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Monday 17 September 2007]

Asustek Computer recently announced its P5NT WS motherboard, which is built on the Nvidia nForce 680i LT SLI chipset and supports Intel LGA775 socket series CPUs. The motherboard can support two Nvidia SLI graphics cards with dual x16 speeds and is also Quadro certified, according to Asustek.

The PCI-X structure of the P5NT WS motherboard is a newer, higher speed version of the conventional PCI standard. It is also fully hardware and software backward compatible to previous generations of PCI, stated Asustek.

The P5NT WS also encompasses an 8-phase power design that reduces input ripple current and output ripple voltages – keeping the CPU and power modules from the risk of high power stress. It also provides reliability under heavy-loading and overclocking by stabilizing output current and voltages. All this effectively lets components attain longer lifespans and allows them to operate at 15 degrees Celsius, lower than conventional solutions.

The motherboard also features AI Clock Skew technology to automatically skew the memory clock signal timing to improve memory overclocking capabilities by 10-15%, claims Asustek. The clock signal can be adjusted to reserve enough setup time/hold time in order to maintain the system's stability.
