P5N32SLIP 2D s ASUS P5N32SLI Premium/WiFi AP w/ 3 x16 PCIe Slots

ASUS has announced their latest P5N32-SLI Premium/WiFi-AP board
based on the “eradicated” nForce 590 SLI Intel Edition chipset and interestingly
this board has 3 x PCI Express x16 slot (2 for SLI and one for Physics
card). One could be mistaken that there is a NVIDIA Physics card from the PR but it probably
mean that a 3rd NVIDIA graphics card (we reported before here)
can be plugged into the 3rd x16 slot to do Physics calculations, similar to the
ATi Crossfire Physics concept of using 3 graphics cards
which we have seen during Computex. Apparently, only ASUS will mass produce
boards based on nForce 590 SLI Intel Edition where others have opted for the
upcoming C55 chipset to be launched in November. Luckily, C55 is pin compatible
with nForce 590 SLI chipset so no major changes are required.

P5N32SLIP Box&Board ASUS P5N32SLI Premium/WiFi AP w/ 3 x16 PCIe Slots

ASUS Technology Pte. Ltd. (ASUS), the worldwide leader of motherboards, today
introduced the P5N32-SLI premium/WiFi-AP, which leveraged Quad-SLI technology,
Intel’s Core2 Extreme support, and a third PCI Express x16 slot for Nvidia’s
upcoming Physics card to deliver superior gaming realism. Teamed with SupremeFX
and DTS connect, P5N32-SLI Premium/WiFi-AP-powered systems provide gaming
experiences that look, feel and sound real.

Powerful processing capability for games
The P5N32-SLI Premium/WiFi-AP is a gamer’s dream up true. It is Quad-SLI ready
and supports the Intel Core2 Extreme processor, providing superior processing
power for the most graphics resource-hungry applications. The motherboard
incorporated three PCI Express x16 slots (two for SLI-ready dual-GPU graphics
cards and one reserved for Nvidia’s Physics card) to enable unparalleled
graphics performance and gaming realism.

Supreme audio and realistic sound
The SupremeFX audio card and DTS connect combined to offer great sound quality
to go with the robust video power. The SupremeFX offers enhanced signal-to-noise
ratio, while DTS connect, with 24bit/192kHz full sampling in all 7.1 surround
channel, delivers exhilarating surround sound for games, MP3, WMA and CD etc.

AI Lifestyle features
The motherboard, of course, included a wide range of exclusive features found
only on ASUS solutions.

8-Phase Power Design
The 8-Phase Power Design provides highly efficient operation to generate less
heat (at least 15°C) than other conventional power solutions. It reduces input
ripple current and output ripple voltage, which keeps CPU and VRM (voltage
regulation modules) from suffering the risk of high power stress. It has the
advantages of quick transient response and stability, especially beneficial when
CPU requires more current immediately under heavy loading or overclocking mode.

WiFi-AP Solo – Wireless connection even when the system sleeps
WiFi-AP Solo allows a new level of PC versatility by providing both access point
(AP) and wireless client modes. Even when the system sleeps the AP mode
continues to connect devices in the WLAN for games, Internet access and printer
functions sharing.
Fan-less Designs – Stack Cool and Copper Heat Pipe
The fan-less designs bring effective and noiseless cooling to counter the heat
generated by components. Watch movies, listen to music and play games, and enjoy
the peace and quiet. System damage from fan failure is also a thing of the past.
The copper heat pipe directs heat generated by the chipsets to the heatsink near
the back I/O ports, where it can be carried away by existing airflow, while
Stack Cool effectively transfers heat generated by the critical components to
the other side of the specially designed PCB (printed circuit board) for fast
heat dissipation.

Performance and silent computing
With AI Nap, users can instantly “relax” their PCs without terminating current
tasks. System will continue to operate at minimum power and noise when users are
temporarily away. It downloads files and run applications at the quietest state
while users are asleep. Simply click on the mouse to wake up the system in
seconds. To balance system performance and silent computing, AI Gear enables
users to choose from profiles to adjust CPU frequency and vCore voltage,
minimizing system noise and power consumption.
