Foxconn P35AP-S motherboard unveiled

Posted on Tuesday, Oct 23 2007 @ 16:37 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Foxconn launched a new motherboard based on the Intel P35 chipset. The P35AP-S has support for both DDR2 and DDR3 memory. With support for both DDR2 and DDR3 memory, the P35AP-S is more versatile than standard P35 chipset solutions. Up to 8GB of DDR2 1066/800/667MHz memory or 4GB of DDR3 1333/1066/800MHz memory can be installed, providing more flexibility for PC assemblers and enthusiasts who don’t want to upgrade to DDR3 memory immediately.

The P35AP-S has been engineered for high-performance computing with long-term operating stability. A 100% SOLID Capacitor and Ferrite Choke design improve component reliability and enable operation at higher frequencies with less heat generation; a key factor in overclocking performance.
