Asus Motherboards 1995-present
« on: January 10, 2015, 10:02:23 AM »
I have added a repository of documents put into chronological order
making it easier to look up info on asus boards from the past .. as their own site does not list boards in a browsable manner that are older then socket 1156..

visit http://www.oldschooldaw.com/asus/
make sure u are using firefox with the built in pdf viewer installed + enabled

Beware the Asmedia AS1083 PCIe-PCI bridge chip.

It has known issues with releasing interrupts and may cause serious problems with audio or video capture cards. You can avoid this by getting a board with a different PCIe-PCI bridge. Almost all of the Asus boards use the AS1083 but Gigabyte seems to have been smart enough to not use it so a Gigabyte motherboard with an ITE bridge chip resides in my customer's DAW.
