Supporting the latest AMD Athlon X2 dual core CPU and integrating nVidia’s
GeForce 6 class texture engine, this mainboard/GPU hybrid is gonna rock’n’roll.

First DirectX 9.0 supported Mainboard

A chipset with integrated graphics engine is normally called the IGP chipset and
IGP equals to low end graphic processor in most people’s mind. With its Texture
Engine and hardware DirectX9.0 support, the GeForce 6100 proves itself as no
ordinary IGP chipset. Sharing the same class as nVidia’s GeForce 6 VGA cards,
the GeForce 6100 essentially equals putting a VGA card onto the mainboard for
astounding graphic processing power. This 90nm beast earns its right as the
world first DirectX 9.0 supported chipset with Shadow Model 3.0, 2 Pixel Shader
and 1 Vertex Shader built in to satisfy all users. Harnessing the power of this
engine, the EPOX EP-9GF6100-M will easily meet the graphics hungry needs of the
looming Microsoft Windows Vista.

All in one functions

Targeting the mainstream home user and office PC, the EP-9GF6100-M comes
equipped PCI-Express slots for future upgrades. For gamers, it even includes a
PCI-E x16 slot for VGA upgrade and SATA II interface. The onboard 2 SATA II
interface with of up to 3.0 Gbps and NCQ function for higher information
exchange speed between the hard disk will save lots of the time. Hot-plug is
also a basic function for all SATA II interfaces and RAID 0 and 1 are provided
too. Another 4 channels of UltraDMA 133/100/66 are available for optical
devices. For high end audio quality, it uses Realtek ALC655 chip to obtain 5.1
channel of theater-liked sound. 100MbE LAN is a standard function on
EP-9GF6100-M through Realtek RTL8201CL F-Ethernet PHY. 8 USB2.0 ports with the
speed of 480Mbps are there to fulfill the needs of the users to connect to other
USB supported devices.

EPoX Thunder Probe

Another useful goody is Thunder Probe, a useful hardware monitoring software
bundled with EP-9GF6100-M. It can detect the hardware voltage, temperature,
hardware speed and Smart Fan that supports intelligent fan speed controller to
reduce fan noise. And also with “Ghost Monitor”, a separate semi-transparent
window for users to monitor the status of the system with ease. With all those
ultimate functions and abilities, EP-9GF6100-M is not only a value M-ATX
mainboard, it also a powerful and reliable board for the end users.
