Soltek Computer on Tuesday announced its new SL-865Pro-FGR mainboard with a new set of “Pro” features as well as support for the new Intel Pentium 4 processors models that are yet to be announced – probably the chips code-named
The SL-865Pro-FGR is Soltek’s flagship i865PE-based offering that boasts with advanced features, such as Gigabit Ethernet and RAID, and is positioned as a solution for high-end desktop, workstation or even entry-level server. The mainboard belongs to "Black Thunder" family, is made using black PCB and is sold in stylish bag from Soltek under.
SL-865Pro-FGR mainboard supports Intel Socket 478 microprocessors with 400/533/800MHz Quad Pumped Bus, features 4 DIMM slots for up to 4GB of PC2100/PC2700/3200 memory (dual-channel memory bus support: memory modules used should be identical and installed in pairs), an AGP 8x, 5 PCI slots, 2-channel Parallel ATA-33/66/100, 6-channel AC'97 sound, USB 2.0 and so on.
Additionally, Soltek SL-865Pro-FGR brings you 2 Serial ATA-150 ports with RAID support as well as additional 2 Parallel ATA-33/66/100/133 channels with RAID support. The company calls this capability “RAID Pro”.
The mainboard also boasts with “LAN Pro” – a Gigabit Ethernet CSA controller from Intel.
Soltek claims that thanks to its unique R&D efforts, the mainboard is able to be overclocked to 1200MHz Quad Pumped Bus. Even though the feature has been available on other products from Soltek since late April, the company now calls it “Performance Pro”. Soltek’s proprietary features to assist overclockers are now called “Overclocking Pro” and are believed to be extremely comfortable tool to achieve maximum performance when overclocking.
A feature that has not been available on Soltek’s mainboards before is called “Do-It-Yourself Pro” and is destined to detect any possible issues with the setup and notify end-users about the problem.
Pricing and availability of the mainboard is to be determined later.
