775Dual-880Pro (VIA PT880 Pro) Intro 1/4 Bluetooth 25 Aug 2005
We reviewed the ever popular
939Dual-SATA2 sometime ago. ASrock now introduces another dual solution -
775Dual-Pro880. This mainboard is based on the VIA PT880Pro chipset which
supports both AGP and PCIe interfaces. It can also hook up to
4 monitors to do surround video.
In additional to supporting both graphics interface standards, it also support
up to 2 slots of DDR2-667 or 2 slots of DDR400 memory. The chipset used is not
crippled in anyway and it supports dual core processors from 820D and the
standard LGA775 processors too.
Supports FSB1066/800/533MHz processor, EM64T CPU support Ready and H-T
Supports Intel Dual Core Processors (Exteme Edition / Pentium D)
Supports DDRII 667/533/400 and DDR400, Dual Channel Technology (DDRII and DDR
are supported separately)
Hybrid Booster - ASRock Safe Overclocking Technology
PCI Express Graphics and AGP interface to adopt both PCI Express and AGP Display
SerialATA 1.5Gb/s, RAID 0,1, JBOD, SATA HDD Hotplug, plus 2 ports of ATA 133
7.1channel Audio, 10/100 PCI Ethernet LAN
ASRock 8CH I/O: 8 Channel audio jacks, 4 ready-to-use USB2.0 ports
So how will this board
compare with other boards based on the 955X chipsets. We will check them out in
the benchmark section.
