COMMELL’s FS-978 : Intel 865G-based CPU Card Runs at 800 MHz FSB solution

(PRWEB) August 8, 2003

COMMELL, the Industrial Computer Division of Taiwan Commate Computer Inc., announces the Full-size PICMG platform FS-978 based on Intel 82865G and 82801EB Chipset, which offers high-bandwidth interfaces such as dual-channel DDR400 main memory, the latest Intel Pentium 4 processor of up to 3.2GHz+ clock speed on 800MHz FSB with hyper-threading technology, integrated graphics controller with Intel Extreme Graphics 2 Technology, AGP8X Graphics, Intel Communication Streaming Architecture featuring a Dedicated Network Bus(DNB) interface for wire-speed Gigabit Ethernet and Hi-Speed USB 2.0 connectivity to ensure the performance in data transfer.

To Meet the requirement of different display interface, FS-978 provides the MiniAGP Interface to use add-on card to support LVDS/TMDS/TV/HDTV devices. COMMELL also offers a choice of ATI M10 VGA card to support the MiniAGP port, It delivers premium 3D performance with vivid and cinematic quality graphics.

Additionally, FS-978 is equipped with dual SATA ports that provides a transfer data rate of 150MB/s and easy hard drive upgrades. FS-978 also uses the LSI Logic Fusion-MPT based Ultra320 SCSI controller, and the dual-channel LSI53C1030, and is designed to double the data-transfer speed of current Ultra160 SCSI technology for optimal performance on both Windows and Linux servers and workstations.
