A Closer Look

This motherboard features a Socket 775

The nforce 780i SLI motherboard is based on the NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI Northbridge chipset. It supports Intel Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Extreme, Pentium Extreme, Pentium D and Pentium 4 LGA775 Processors, with Hyper-Threading Technology and 533/800/1066/1333MHz Front Side Bus support.

Memory Expansion
The nforce 780i SLI provides 4 DIMM sockets using Dual Channel 240-pin DDR2 with a total capacity of up to 8GB-64bit. You can install DDR2 667/800/1066/1200MHz SLI-Ready Memory.

PCI Express 2.0 Support
PCI Express Base 2.0 specification doubles the interconnect bit rate from 2.5 GT/s to 5 GT/s in a seamless and compatible manner. The performance boost to 5 GT/s is by far the most important feature of the PCI Express 2.0 specifications. It effectively increases the aggregate bandwidth of a 16-lane link to approximately 16 GB/s. The higher bandwidth will allow product designers to implement narrower interconnect links to achieve high performance.

The nforce 780i SLI includes built in IDE facilities that support Ultra DMA 133.
The nforce 780i SLI comes with an Azalia High Definition audio codec which supports high quality 8-channel audio.

Serial ATA Support
The nforce 780i SLI supports the Serial ATA technology through the Serial ATA interfaces. Doubles bus bandwidth which provides blazingly high disk performance, up to 3.0Gb/s, with RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 5 and JBOD solutions.
