AOpen Inc., a leading multinational IT solutions and components suppliers in
the world, presents its latest 64-bit XC Cube platform, a PC featuring powerful
audio and video capabilities – EX761, today.

Supports 64-bit Windows XP

EX761, which has a 754-pin socket and supports AMDR Athlon 64 and Sempron CPUs,
is one of the first generation of Cube PCs which can run 64-bit Windows XP
operating system.

Among the key advantages of the system is its readiness for the 64-bit future
because it can run today’s 32-bit and tomorrow’s 64-bit (application) software.
It provides affordable 64-bit performance and satisfies customers’ future need.

Strong digital home entertainment AV functions

Because the system offers S/PDIF and coaxial cable outputs, EX761 can be
connected to high quality digital audio output devices such as amplifiers and
multi-channel speakers.

Powerful gaming features

EX761 is also designed to support strong gaming features. The DirectX9 compliant
system is built with integrated 3D gaming logic, a Mirage graphics core, 256-bit
3D acceleration engine, which has an extremely high bandwidth of 3.2GB per
second.

The ideal chipsets to support AMD64 platforms — SiS 761GX

The versatile functions of the EX761 are implemented with the SiS 761GX and 965
chipsets. SiS761GX is the perfect chip and the first product of its kind to
support AMD64 platforms with a PCI Express x16 high-speed graphics interface.
The SiS761GX is equipped with a 3D graphics core, and fully supports new
generation AMD64 central processors, including the AMD Sempron? and Athlon?64.

Supporting the newest high speed PCIe x 16, the SiS761GX allows gamers to add an
external PCI Express graphics card for the ultimate graphics performance. In
addition to its highly efficient Mirage?1 graphics core and software support for
DirectX 9.0, the SiS761GX is capable of dual screen output when paired with the
SiS307 video bridge chip. Aimed at gamers in the mainstream market, the
SiS761GX’s internal graphics core provides ample graphics functionality, thereby
eliminating the need to purchase an additional graphics card. Gamers once again
enjoy high system efficiency thanks to the flexibility of SiS products.

SiS965 Southbridge

The SiS965 southbridge chip is one of the most advanced products on the market
today that supports PCI Express, Serial ATA and Gigabit Ethernet specifications.
Its innovative design puts it at the top of its class in performance, and its
outstanding quality provides the maximum data transmission efficiency.

The SiS965 PCI Express chipset is compatible with 32-bit operating system, and
allow for future upgrade to a 64-bit operating system – yet another
demonstration of AOpen’s commitment to satisfying a wide range of users.

Addressing the need for data access efficiency in servers and workstations, the
SiS965 chipset supports RAID 0,1, 0+1 and JBOD functions, providing users rapid
access to hard disk data, intelligent redundant backup functionality, and secure
file management. These functions eliminate problems such as slow data access
speeds for IT service personnel, and alleviate the problem of data intrusion.

The SiS965 chipset’s integrated Gigabit MAC controller offers speeds up to 1GB
per second. With high-speed broadband networks, the SiS965 chipset offers the
best quality and efficiency and meets all expectations when transferring large
volumes of data. Designed for the real-time network packet, the SiS965 provides
shared bandwidth, avoids slowed data transfer, and effectively relieves transfer
bottlenecks, improving network connectivity.

In addition, the SiS965 chipset also supports new generation Serial ATA hard
drives, which, in comparison with the SCSI interface design, allows for faster
transmission speeds and more economical equipment costs, all at an optimal
price.

The EX761 is built with two DIMM slots for DDR400 memory modules so that the
total on-board memory is expandable to 2GB.

The system is built with PCI and PCI Express x16 slots, ALC655 Codec which
supports AC97 5.1 – channel audio. The front panel comes with USB 2.0, 1394,
SPDIF, microphone, earphone connectors, while its real panel is built with 1394,
Serial, PS/2, USB 2.0, LAN, VGA, parallel, SPDIF, audio, analog, coaxial output,
and gigabit PCI Express LAN connectors.

Proprietary CPU cooler

In addition to the strong audio/video performance, EX761 is built with a unique
and proprietary CPU cooler which contains heat dissipation liquid inside the
heat pipe and supports better thermal performance.

Moreover, the new product inherits the other features of AOpen’s XC Cube series
PCs, including easy assembly, disassembly, aesthetic housing design, silence,
and high expandability.

Easily accessible connectors

Furthermore, the system provides four USB 2.0 ports – two on the front panel,
two on the rear panel, and two on-board. Those users who want to have more USB
ports can add an AOpen XC Cube Expander which can provide more USB connectors to
the users. Two 1394 connectors (one 4-pin and one 6-pin) are accessible from the
front panel and one 6-pin 1394 connector from the rear panel.

The compact EX761 comes with a 275W (20 Pin W/8cm fan) power supply and measures
only 190 mm (W) x 200 mm (H) x 320 mm (D). The system weighs 8.4 lb. or 3.8 kg.
