Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) are showcasing the Intel 975X chipset-based PF23 motherboard with Mobile on Desktop (MoDT) technology and ATI Crossfire support at CeBIT 2006. Unique among Intel 975X chipset-based motherboards currently on the market, the ECS PF23 features socket mPGA479M that supports Mobile on Desktop technology. With MoDT technology, the PF23 can support the Intel Core Duo CPU, Intel’s first 65nm dual-core mobile-optimised processor. Lightening fast desktop performance and the cool, quiet operations of an energy-efficient notebook are combined in this advanced computing solution. Power consumption is reduced, improving the performance/thermal dissipation ratio, which also leads to quieter fan operation and less noise. The PF23 features safe, yet extreme overclocking ability. Thanks to a cooler environment and lower power consumption, the PF23 is ready to accommodate boosted frequency without voltage overloading or concerns about excessive heat. The PF23’s friendly and flexible overclocking functions include a proprietary Instant Overclocking Controller (I.O.C.) to automatically boost frequency and ECSonicII, an easy interface for overclocking in the operating system. ECS’ unique Scalable Dual Graphic Engine (S.D.G.E.) technology allows two PCI Express-based graphics cards to work together on the same motherboard, leveraging ATI CrossFire technology for double graphics card power. The embedded Intel 975X chipset, the first Intel desktop chipset supporting 2 x 8 operations for 16 PCI Express lanes, further adds to the PF23’s ability to deliver optimal 3D graphic performance. The PF23 with Intel’s most advanced 975X chipset, supports all the latest technologies including Intel® Memory Pipeline Technology for higher system performance, Dual Gigabit Ethernet, SATAII, Dual DDRII 667 and eight-channel audio. The PF23 fully complies with EU Reduction of Hazardous Substances standards for motherboards well in advance of the regulations’ July 1, 2006, effective date.
