    <o:p></o:p>

    Taipei, Taiwan, June6, 2006 – FOXCONN, the global leader in the design and manufacture of computer, communications and consumer electronics components, today announced the release of its most enthusiast orientated motherboard to date.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Based on the nForce 590 SLI MCP and supporting AMD Socket AM2 processors, the Foxconn C51XEM2AA-8EKRS2H is set to light up review benches everywhere with its advanced BIOS features, layout, choice of components and enthusiast features never before seen on desktop motherboards.
    <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>

    Foxconn and NVIDIA engineers worked closely to produce what looks to be one of the most outstanding enthusiast motherboards to date.<o:p></o:p>

The BIOS displays current values, making it easier for the user to fine-tune their system, whilst voltage increments are intelligently displayed based around existing values, enabling tiny increments to be implemented for real fine-tuning. BIOS settings can be stored in ‘profiles’ enabling quick and easy retrieval of the numerous settings and tweaks, while the C51XEM2AA also ships with nTune™ 5.0 – one of the most comprehensive Windows-based system control tools ever devised.<o:p></o:p>

    Layout and component choice<o:p></o:p>

You’ll find the x16 PCI-E slots are spaced far apart, leaving room for even the biggest dual graphics cards, whilst the SATA ports are also clear from obstruction. All connectors are easily accessible around the edge of the board, making other connectivity options easy, and minimizing cabling interference.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    The C51XEM2AA incorporates Dual Gigabit LAN and High Definition Audio with Dolby Digital Live®, Maxim PWM controllers (with 2 high-side and 2 low-side for better power delivery) and Falco voltage regulators, which have been overbuilt to ensure that optimal power is delivered to components even when under the greatest stress. The C51XEM2AA can handle 120amps of sustained load using a standard CPU heatsink and fan.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>


    “Something special”<o:p></o:p>
    “Everything about this board has been geared towards performance, without any compromise” commented Christin ****, Foxconn Global Marketing Manager. The board has been designed on a 6-layer PCB, so there is less crosstalk and greater overclocking potential. “When you combine all the elements; the design, the quality of the components and the enthusiast features, you realize that this board really is something special.”<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>


    Supporting the latest desktop technologies<o:p></o:p>
    The C51XEM2AA supports AMD Athlon™ 64 FX, Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual-Core, Athlon™ 64 and Sempron™ Socket AM2 processors, whilst enabling dual-channel DDR2-800 SDRAM memory on the AMD platform for the first time. With 2x PCIe x16 (true Dual x16 SLI capable), Dual Gigabit LAN, 7.1 channel High Definition Audio, a total of 10 USB2.0 ports (6 on rear panel), 6x SATA2.0 ports and FireWire “A” and “B” (enabling faster transfer speeds), the C51XEM2AA will be one of the most capable boards on the market.<o:p></o:p>

    <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>


    Enhanced graphics capability<o:p></o:p>
    The C51XEM2AA includes the innovative NVIDIA “LinkBoost™” technology, which enables users to immediately and substantially enhance graphics performance by ‘boosting’ the bandwidth of attached NVIDIA, SLI-capable video cards. Other supported features include NVIDIA DualNet™ and LinkBoost™, improving networking capabilities, and NVIDIA MediaShield™ technology which provides a range of storage options. AMD Cool “n” Quiet™ processor thermal management technology, and FOXCONN’s Fox LiveUpdate™ (for quick and easy BIOS updating) are also supported.<o:p></o:p>
