X48 + ICH10R: The Intel® X48 Chipset supports the latest multi-core
processors, FSB 1600MHz, 45nm processing; It is regarded as the module with
cutting-edge performance and energy efficiency. Intel® X48 chipset, while its
over-speed protection is removed for maximum over clocking, and with optimized
system memory capabilities, can provide very fast booting, reduce application
load time, and achieve extra power savings.
DDR3 memory: The DDR3 memory is a choice for the next-generation PC
system. DDR3 memories support data rates of 1,600 MT/s and clock frequencies
elevated from 400 MHz to 800 MHz, effectively double the speed of DDR2. The DDR3
supply voltage has also been lowered from 1.8V to 1.5V, cutting power
consumption by up to 30 percent, while no performance is sacrificed.
PCIE Gen 2 Technology: PCIE 2.0 doubles the bus standard’s bandwidth
from 2.5 Gigabit/s to 5 Gigabit/s. This means that a x32 connector can transfer
data at up to 16 GB/s in each direction. It also works perfectly compatible with
The CrossFireX: Supports ATI CrossFireX™ Technology, real dual PCI-E
Gen2 x16 or three PCI-E Gen2 x8 connectivity for up to the latest 2 or 3-way ATI
CrossFireX™ VGA cards. It supports the physics and provides the ultra realistic
Functionality of Teaming: LANParty series provides Dual gigabit LAN to
gamers as a regular and basic feature. Nowadays, it is almost a must when users
want to grab information from DVD contents and highly loaded games to engage in
instant fighting with buddies on LAN games. For that reason, DFI LP UT X48-T3R
provides another unique function, Teaming function to all the heavy users of
Internet/ LAN. It features double-bandwidth to meet the needs. Moreover, it has
a fail-over function that if one LAN port crashes, the other one will continue.
Needless to say the teaming function gives you the performance, connectivity and
back up functions that you will ever need.
Serial ATA 3.0GBps/ (SATA II): This high speed storage measure
improves data transfer rate. DK 790FX provides 4 Serial ATA ports with up to 3
Gbps speed and can support RAID 0/ 1/ 0+1/ 5 as well.
The Digital PWM: DFI is the first motherboard manufacturer to replace
the ordinary PWM with Digital PWM in the industry. Digital PWM uses special
components to supply stabilized and sufficient current to accommodate
enthusiasts ‘ needs in OC or gaming. The heat dissipating fins of the PWM
circuit stabilize current flow to the whole system including AMD quad cores CPU.
Bernstein audio: DFI’s Bernstein audio module is the newest provision
that demonstrates excellent on-board audio quality of LANParty UT X48-T3R. The
board is innovative in many ways that greatly surpasses those of Karajan’s.
Location wise, it is now placed to the PCI slot vicinity for easy mounting. You
will also notice that the new audio module certainly achieves a perfect noise
reduction than any of the previous models. Since that Pro-gamers or power users
expect the best quality for their output devices, and the noise reduction
feature here is just the right answer. It is noteworthy that Bernstein audio
adopts Realtek ALC885 high definition codec and is certified by Microsoft Vista
Premium. It features a DAC SNR of 106dB and ADC SNR of 101dB. It also supports a
sampling speed at the highest 192 KHz, 10 DAC channels, 3 Stereo ADC channels
(7.1 + 2 channels) and 24bit PCM. Besides, please do not forget that it provides
“Full-rate Lossless Content Protection Codec” that can decrypt Content
Protection for HD-DVD that will come in the future, and please you with the
clearest image quality of DVD playing.
EZ Switch: For easier manipulation, DFI has created a handy way for
overclockers to switch the on and reset buttons while the system is there
without a chassis cover.
The debug light: The debug LED can help users to detect what sort of
problems they are facing. It has a total of 40 different signal codes to help
users to fix hardware issues in just a blink of the eyes.
Top quality Japanese Capacitors: DFI LANParty series strictly
incorporates only the supreme and refined components into every motherboard. The
Japanese-made highest-end capacitor is just one of our insistences. The superb
long life, highly stable, and reliable Japanese capacitors are the rock solid
parts used for our super overclocking platform.
CMOS Reloaded Technology: CMOS Reloaded is a creative design for BIOS
settings. It is absolutely the first-in-industry of our products to meet
enthusiast’s need since 2003. Overclockers can simply backup and load with the
CMOS Reloaded for their OC BIOS setting. No hassles to start over again from the
very beginning stage of fine-tune procedure should an OC failure occurs.
Instead, the enthusiasts can save a stable setting during the O.C. process and
keep overclocking in a convenient and uninterrupted way.
Genie BIOS: Enthusiasts always take great pleasure in that they can
squeeze a little more performance from the system while overclocking.
Considering this, DFI has offered a variety of BIOS options for enthusiasts.
There are memory voltage option, NB & SB option, CPU VCore option, and HT
