Foxconn Launches New Motherboard Developed for Low-power Intel Processors
Foxconn today launched a new mATX motherboard optimized for low-power Intel processors based on the Intel® 945GC chipset. The 45CMV has been tuned for sub-65W Intel processors, which includes most Intel Core 2 Duo models and all Pentium Dual Core and Celeron models. Although the 45CMV has been designed for energy efficiency, it still offers FSB 1333MHz support, dual DDR2 800MHz memory support and an integrated DirectX 9 graphics engine via the Intel GMA 950 graphics processor. The 45CMV also ships with 5.1 channel HD audio, integrated networking, two SATAII and six USB2.0 connectors. Expansion slots include 1 PCIe x16 slot, 1 PCIe x1 slot and 1 PCI slot. The 45CMV will be available in worldwide sales channels in early February with a suggested price of US$50.
