Silver Mainboard da Albatron
Con la seguente press-release, Albatron Technology annuncia le nuove schede madri PX845G e PX845E caratterizzate dal PCB in argento.
"PX845G / E August 2002 - Albatron Technology, a manufacturer of Motherboards and Adaptor Cards announced the sleek, new 'Silver' Mainboards, the PX845G and the PX845E. Both of these products have surfaces that are coated with pure silver improving heat dissipation and reducing EMI emission. These two products provide the end user with the best performance, the best value, and the highest efficiency Mainboards available on the market today.
These mainboards use a new plating technology to apply the silver coating to the board. Silver plating can be very efficient in dissipating heat and reducing EMI emission but it is also a highly conductive material capable of shorting the copper elements on the PCB if not applied correctly. The plating technology used at Albatron technology ensures that the board optimizes heat and EMI reduction while protecting the sensitive copper conductors and ensuring the integrity and efficiency of the system.
The PX845G/PX845E competitive edge includes:
- Attractive Features: Because of the attractive silver color produced by mixing silver powder and lacquer, these boards naturally become an eye-catching, marketing feature directed at the new generation of users.
- Stability & Efficiency: Because the PCB must endure high temperatures and radiation from the CPU, RAM Modules, VGA Cards and other components, the Silver plating can significantly reduce EMI emission and resist electromagnetic wave interference. This helps to maintain system stability and improve system efficiency. Results of EMI diagnostic analysis and testing showed that, on average, EMI emission from Silver PCBs was only 47% of what other PCBs produced.
- Heat Dissipation: Silver plating has also been shown to be a much more efficient way to dissipate heat than conventional plastic. Silver PCBs are noticeably cooler than traditional PCBs which makes it more suitable to overclocking, which is a process used to increase the performance of a board but at the same time generating more heat. Heat dissipation analysis and testing has shown that the Silver PCBs are at least 15% more efficient in dissipating heat than other PCB boards.
- Environmentally Conscious: During the soldering processes, Tin and Plastic elements can come into contact releasing fumes into the atmosphere. The Silver PCB avoids this problem by using a special silver lacquer.
The Silver PX845G/E Mainboards are based on the Intel 845G & 845E Chipsets, both of which support the 533 MHz Pentium 4s. In addition, both boards come with one 4x AGP (with 1.5V lock), three DIMM slots, six 32-bit PCI slots, a CNR slot (optional), an onboard 5.1 audio chipset, and six USB 2.0 ports. ports. "
