In fact the difference from iE is very slight, but considering undoubted magnitude of the new chipset it is worth closer look at. Now comes the most interesting part of the review – the BIOS. There is also a switch for controlling the voltage supplied to the memory and the chipset; its default value is 3. AOpen has gone even further: BioShock Infinite and Metro: The AC’97 audio is upgraded to support up to 6 channels of audio, although anyone serious about their sound will want to get a true hardware based PCI solution. Now when our short review of chipset specifications is over let’s turn to the board itself and start with its specs:

The AC’97 audio is upgraded to support up to 6 channels of audio, although anyone serious about their sound will want to get a true hardware based PCI solution.

It’s usually a result of high-quality products time and time again. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.


Take for example Jaguar company that is part of the Ford V – it’s high class English autocar, a real respectability. Introduction Today’s motherboards are often developed not only by engineers but also by designers. But the design of the box and accessories the standard complete set includes only a SmartTool screw-driver took much more strain from the specialists. First, they saved on new chipset project; second, they dug out non-standard GMCH the main reason of screening is hidden exactly in the graphics coredisabled integrated video in BIOS, and started to sell it.

While many AnandTech readers probably won’t make use of it, the also features integrated ibased 3D graphics.

But this step allows saving a lot of money when developing a platform for a new Jaguar. But for the base of a small Jaguar which is going to compete against Mercedes C-class or the third BMW they took chassis of Ford Mondeo of the last generation – this car stands much lower than Jaguar.


Now I’m going to tell you the chipset’s specifications and describe the board briefly, which is necessary for those who don’t remember the predecessor quite well.

Interestingly, we learned from our recent trip to Taiwan that competing manufacturers seem to look up to ASUS as the benchmark to strive for. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.

First it supports only MBytes memory, it lacks ECC support, and the performance gives up hope – the level set by BX hasn’t been beaten. So, what does it lack of? They took their bestseller – the CUSL2-C board – and worked a bit on its design thus receiving an elite product.

The complete set also includes SmartCard Reader.

Besides, the today’s board lacks for a COM2 port as compared with the predecessor – it is replaced by a Smartconn – a connector for Smart-card reader, which is, in fact, a serial port. Panasonic 40x speed Video card: The latter ones do their best, especially when speaking about AOpen and Gigabyte mainboards.

It is no asks that most settings are implemented in the BIOS. In a computer industry everything seems simpler. Stylish blue boards from Gigabyte meant for the retail market will undoubtedly draw attention of buyers.

I think they should have covered the heatsink with silver or platinum like some AOpen boardsor have made it of silver like a Silverado cooler of NoiseControl made of hallmark silver. And I think the psychologists have also participated cus,2 the development of this product: This bus allows a twice wider bandwidth – Mbps instead of Mbps and this allows to use all the capabilities of the chipset in full: Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method.

Write a comment below. AOpen has gone even further: Nobody would turn its back on a board that was created on the base of uniform PCB, with a lot of non-unsoldered ports, chips and expandable slots.

ASUS CUSL2 Socket-370 i815E ATX

All this stuff, plus changing the voltage supplied to the memory and chipset provide good overclocking potential. Supported processors and buses: The most considerable difference between the two boards is the replacement of the ITE ITF chip a controller of a keyboard, a csul2, serial and parallel ports by the Winbond WGF, but I think that such change is connected not with any external factors but with the lack of chips in the storehouse of the company.

After simple cusl with the BIOS file we can get any dusl2 on the screen during the booting. It is probably thanks to lack of integrated graphics, or it might be BIOS that influenced, but on the other hand the gap is not so big, and the performance difference might be caused by measurement error.
