EPoX s EPoX EP MF570 SLI Board

EPoX now launches its socket AM2 based mainboard, EP-MF570
SLI., using nVidia’s top of the range chipset, the nForce 570 SLI.
EP-MF570 SLI features support for DDR2 800 memory with a bandwidth of upto
6.4GB/s and a maximum 16GB memory capacity. There are
total of 8 SATA II connectors equipped with RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 5 and supporting NCQ
functionality where 6 of them are from nForce 570 SLI chipset and the other 2
are from JMicron’s JMB363 which also supports eSATA. As nF570 SLI only supports
one IDE interface, the Jmicron IC also provides another extra IDE interface to
ensure the needs of users who are upgrading the system and still need to keep
their IDE devices. Built in
Dual Marvell 88E1116 gigabit LAN allows the PC to serve as a network gateway to
balance the efficiency of data transfer and making it better suited for
streaming multimedia from the internet and across the users network.

EPoX EPoX EP MF570 SLI Board

AMD has finally unveiled its new platform, socket AM2, which is a 940-pin
socket and has full support for DDR2 memory, bringing the speed of AMD platform
to the next level. EPoX now launches its socket AM2 based mainboard, EP-MF570
SLI., using nVidia’s top of the range chipset, the nForce 570 SLI.

nVidia nForce 570 SLI with PCI-E x16 and x8 VGA slot

EP-MF570 SLI features support for DDR2 800 memory with a bandwidth of upto
6.4GB/s and a maximum 16GB memory capacity. For SLI mode, the driver can
automatically detect for the cards present and there is no old school paddle
card or jumpers that need to be changed. With one VGA card the setting will be
x16 and x8, the left x8 slot can be used for other PCI-E cards or RAID devices.
When 2 VGA cards are installed, it becomes x8 and x8 automatically. There are
total of 8 SATA II connectors equipped with RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 5 and supporting NCQ
functionality where 6 of them are from nForce 570 SLI chipset and the other 2
are from JMicron’s JMB363 which also supports eSATA. As nF570 SLI only supports
one IDE interface, the Jmicron IC also provides another extra IDE interface to
ensure the needs of users who are upgrading the system and still need to keep
their IDE devices. A 7.1 channel high definition audio solution from Realtek,
namely the ALC883 HD Codec is provided on this mainboard which supports up to 24
bit PCM audio playback providing the user with crystal clear digital surround
sound and the ability to enjoy a total of 8 channels’ of audio power. Built in
Dual Marvell 88E1116 gigabit LAN allows the PC to serve as a network gateway to
balance the efficiency of data transfer and making it better suited for
streaming multimedia from the internet and across the users network.

Reincarnate your PC with “Ghost BIOS”

Regardless of cost, EPoX has invented and developed the EP1308 SUPER I/O chip to
support the new BIOS recovery function, “Ghost BIOS.” User won’t have to send
their mainboards back for repair due to corrupted BIOS, just following the steps
in the “Thunder Flash” utility their BIOS will be recovered and flashed to the
latest BIOS version. Not only this, with EPoX’s special hardware features, a
tremendous creative idea for LED debugging system called “LEDION” is also
incorporated. It helps to debug when not being able to boot due to the CPU / PCI-E
/ DIMM slot. Another user friendly feature, “EZ Button”, helps power users to be
able to switch on the board without any other cables and directly power on the
board by button. Plus “Thunder Probe”, a hardware monitoring software that helps
users to see voltage, temperature and speeds for a variety of hardware; “Smart
Fan” , an intelligent fan speed controller to reduce fan noise; And also “Ghost
Monitor”, a separate semi-transparent window for users to monitor the status of
the system with ease in real time. With all those ultimate functions and
abilities, EP-MF570 SLI has turned into a powerful and reliable monster board
for all end users.
