During a keynote at Computex Taiwan 2001, Intel® Corporation demonstrated for the first time its upcoming Intel® 845 chipset for Pentium® 4 processor based-platforms. The Intel® 845 chipset is a flexible chipset designed to take advantage of existing platform technologies (PC133 SDRAM, AGP4x) with the Pentium® 4 processor. MSI™ today announced our new motherboard-MSI® 845 Pro, based on the Intel® 845 chipset.
MSI™'s 845 Pro motherboard conforms to the ATX form factor and is fully capable of delivering the high frequency and excellent performance of the PentiumR 4 processor. The 845 Pro applies the Socket 423 specification from Intel®. The Socket 423 architecture is developed by Intel® to further enhance functions and features on top of the previous Socket 370 architecture.
Based on Intel®'s QDR (Quad Data Rate) technology, the data transfer rate between the chipset and the processor can reach as high as 3.2GB/sec, avoiding data congestion in the processor, and accelerating the data communication between subsystems. The chipset and the memory bus apply Dual Channel technology, increasing data transfer rate to 3.2GB/sec as well, boosting the data processing speed!
Expansion slots are available for 5x PCI, 1x CNR, and 1 AGP 4x Port. 3 DIMM slots support up to 3GB of system memory, enabling higher bus speed, bandwidth and system performance. With support for features such as the Suspend to RAM/Disk, D-LED™ and MSI™'s famous PC Alert™ III hardware monitoring software, the 845 Pro provides a complete solution for system manageability.
Supports Live Driver™
Supports Fuzzy Logic™3
STR (Suspend to RAM)
STD (Suspend to Disk)
