AOpen heeft 2 nieuwe moederborden aangekondigd. Het zijn beide low-budget Socket370 moederborden. De plankjes zijn gebaseerd op de Intel 440LX chipset. Hier wat reclamepraat uit de aankondiging :
For capable performance, both the MX3L and AX3L support 300-to-400MHz Intel Celeron (PGA370) processors. Likewise, both the MX3L and AX3L utilize Intel 440LX AGP chipsets, and include 3 DIMM sockets to allow users to install either high-performance SDRAM or more cost-effective EDO memory. A maximum of 768MB can be installed with either motherboard.
A new and surprising benefit is on-board sound. The MX3L and AX3L integrate an ESS Solo 1 sound chipset, which eliminates the need and cost of adding a soundcard. Furthermore, it keeps an expansion slot open for an additional add-on card.
For use within a networked environment, AOpen integrates several key management features into both new motherboards. This includes support for Wake-on-Modem, Wake-on-LAN, Wake-on-RTC Timer, and Wake-on-keyboard/mouse. Furthermore, AOpen provides hardware monitoring and a resetable fuse to provide additional protection against power surges from peripherals.
Both the MX3L and AX3L motherboards meet ACPI standards, and are Microsoft Windows 95/98, CE, NT 4.0, PC 97/98, Novell, and FCC/DoC certified.
