Since DDR3 memory technology is nowhere near wide availability yet, Asustek Computer, the world’s largest producer of computer mainboards, has decided to offer a motherboard with pre-installed DDR3 modules and specifically tailored heat-spreaders. The manufacturer suggested retail price of the novelty has not yet been announced.
Asustek’s P5K3 Premium/WiFi-AP mainboard comes with two 1GB of PC3-10666 (1333MHz) memory modules already installed onboard and covered with high-performance heat-spreaders. Even though onboard DDR3 memory works at default 1066MHz, Asus guarantees that the memory can be overclocked to 1500MHz and higher. The company does not name the supplier of the modules or their latency nor voltage settings. The mainboard is based on an Intel P35 chipset and supports a variety of LGA775 form-factor processors, including future chips with a 1333MHz processor system bus. The board supports ATI CrossFire multi-GPU technology, sports a number of modern technologies for tweaking and overclocking as well as built-in wireless network controller that can function both as an access point or a wireless client mode.
