Imprint: AB48 V1.1 (see above)
Version without network function: AB48



  • Chipset:
    Intel 845PE/ICH4
  • Socket 478 CPU support
    Intel Pentium 4 and Celeron processor for Socket 478 with 400 and 533MHz FSB
    Mainboard AB48PN (v2.0) supports also 800MHz FSB in overclocking mode.
    Prescott processors are not supported.
    According to the specification the chipset is designed for max. FSB533, but thanks to
    the special clock chip and the PCB layouts, the mainboard is well prepared for
    operation in overclocking mode.
    Mainboard supports Hyper-Threading
    FSB infinitely adjustable (in 1 MHz steps)
  • Expansion slots:
    1 x AGP (v2.0) slot supports 4X mode
    Important note: AGP slot supports only 1,5V mode
    5 x 32 Bit PCI (v2.2)
  • Onboard IDE Controller
    2 Channel Enhanced PCI IDE 
    for up to 4 IDE devices
    supports UltraDMA/100
  • Multimedia:
    AC97 2.2 6 Channel sound
    Connectors on backpanel: line-in, line-out, microphone, MIDI/gameport, line in/out
    More line-ins on the mainboard audio-in for CD-ROM (connector CN4 and CN12) and AUX (CN11).
  • Networking:
    10/100MBit LAN
