ASUS Unveils AW171
World's First Opteron Processor-Based Workstation
ASUSTeK today introduced the AW171, the world's first workstation to support the latest AMD Opteron processor. The all-new ASUS workstation, based on the NVIDIA nForce 3 pro 150 chipset, incorporated cutting-edge technology and unique designs to offer a high-performance and cost-effective solution.

With the
AMD Opteron processor, the AW171 provides 32-bit and 64-bit computing capability for the most demanding applications. Combined with four 184-pin DIMM sockets supporting a maximum of 8GB memory capacity, it is the perfect device for excellent performance. For peripheral connection and networking, the AW171 supports six USB 2.0 ports, up to two IEEE 1394 ports, one onboard audio port and high-speed Gigabit LAN technology.

The AW171 comes equipped with the Promise R20378 RAID controller onboard to offer support for two IDE and two Serial ATA hard disk drives, which enable RAID 0, 1, 0+1, functions for better performance and data protection.

The AW171 allows superior performance without the extra baggage of overheating through an excellent system layout that increases airflow. In addition, the unique Smart Fan technology, found only on ASUS systems, monitors system temperatures and automatically adjusts fan speeds to maintain acoustics at the most suitable level.
