But it is probably this definite sample to blame. Though in general, the iE chipset is not that bad, and Intel being tired of infinite problems has just cut a graphics core out of the North Bridge leaving all others without alterations. But on the base of this board one can realize infinite number of versions of the same board, and the customer will choose exactly what he needs.

ASUS CUSL2-C, Socket , Intel (CUSL2-C-BLK) Motherboard | eBay

Unlike the i chipsetthe optional display cache is not included on the motherboard, but can be added via a Graphics Performance Accelerator GPA card that sits in the AGP slot, but it’s still the same assu display cache from the i Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. Video 3Digests Video cards: VGA connector of integrated video disappeared as well, but the layout didn’t allow the second COM-port to be put on its regular place – it ‘s left on the front edge of the board.

Unfortunately, ASUS didn’t pay required attention to the user’s manual and unfortunately left a lot of words on an integrated video that GMCH featured. Well, it does add some flexibility to the CUSL2, allowing users to add first a modem riser and later a network riser or any combination of two devices, asux than being forced to buy the appropriate riser with everything they want all at once.

Fortunately, it also offers an AGP 4X slot for higher performance systems or future expansion. Xusl-2 if you are an overclocker you have to look for a good square cooler.


Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: Conclusion So, the flagship model of ASUS on the chipset from Intel got rid of integrated video and some other unnecessary things, lost USD, and now it’s ready to fight against competitors in order to win users’ hearts.

For whatever reason, some companies manage to garner a sort of “cult” following. The newest iEP chipset legacy stability promising overclockability Lows: Auto Detect increase by up to 0. It’s usually a result of high-quality products time and time again. And now let’s turn to the performance of the board.

BioShock Infinite and Metro: On the bracket two additional USB-ports are mounted. This will make possible either reduce the price or raise sales volume or increase percentage of profitability of each sold car.

By Alexander Poluvyalov Now we can see how computer and car industries are overlapping more and more; in both fields one has to use similar marketing steps and ways to reduce costs of projecting and production being in the tough competition.

asis First up the differences from CUSL2. In fact the difference from iE is very slight, but considering undoubted magnitude of the new chipset it is worth closer look at. Panasonic 40x speed Video card: In voltage pulse converters there installed 11 LowESR capacitors of uF, part of which are located close to the processor socket.

Interestingly, we learned mothernoard our recent trip to Taiwan that competing manufacturers seem to look up to ASUS as the benchmark to strive for. It is probably thanks to lack of integrated graphics, or it might be BIOS that influenced, but on the other hand the gap xsus not so big, and the performance difference might be caused by measurement error. With Intel’s recent introduction of the i and iE chipsets, it seems that we finally have a decent replacement for the venerable iBX.


Supported processors and buses: The MB total memory limit of the is still in effect, however. We don’t have practically free sound in AC’97 codec, 3 audio connectors – Line-In, Line-Out and Microphone, and a connector for a joy-stick.

So, what does cusl- lack of?

ASUS always seems to have some of the most innovative motherboards, and the CUSL2 is no exception, featuring by far one of the strangest looking innovations we’ve ever seen at AnandTech. To determine why they excluded this option we should look back. ASUS had 2 legendary boards: First, they saved on new chipset project; second, they dug out non-standard GMCH the main reason of screening is hidden exactly in the graphics coredisabled integrated video in BIOS, and started to sell it. You might argue that today many manufacturers use such approach – for example, they provide a space for the second BIOS chip and so on, but in such a scale it’s the first time.

Well, it very “easy” money! ASUS happens to be one of those companies in the motherboard industry.
