Starex G31 Motherboard Driver supports Intel Core 2 Duo, Pentium, and Celeron processors. The Intel G31 chipset delivers a premium experience to Microsoft Windows Vista Aero users with support for a 1333 MHz front-side bus (FSB).
The Starex G31 mainboard also features dual channel DDR2 533 / 667 / 800 MHz, 2 x DDR2 DIMM memory slots, expansion slots 1 x PCI slot, storage 4 x SATA connectors, 1 x IDE connector, and 2 x USB 2.0 port.
Intel G31 chipset:
The Intel G31 chipset supports the latest multi-core processors up to FSB 1333 MHz and delivers an energy-efficient solution with a record-breaking performance.
A premium Microsoft Windows Vista Aero experience is possible thanks to the Graphics Media Accelerator 3100 graphics processor and SATA 3.0Gbps technology.
The Intel G31 chipset also provides a point-to-point connection with external devices such as TMDS, LVDS, and TV-Out over i2c. The integrated graphics functionality disable when an external PCI-Express graphics card is detected.
FSB support FSB 533 / 667 / 800 / 1066 / 1333:
The Starex G31 Motherboard supports FSB 533 / 667 / 800 / 1066 / 1333, which allows you to run your processor at higher speeds. This is a great feature for those who want to build a high-performance PC.
This motherboard also supports Dual Channel DDR2 memory technology, which enables you to use up to 2GB of memory in your system. This makes it easier to run high-end graphics cards and multi-task applications simultaneously.
Dual channel DDR2 533 / 667 / 800 MHz:
Dual channel DDR2 is the fastest and most advanced memory technology available. It delivers high performance for 3D graphics and other memory-demanding applications.
DDR2 is based on a synchronous dynamic random access memory (SDRAM) scheme but offers higher speeds and lower latencies as a trade-off. Its bus frequency is boosted by electrical interface improvements, on-die termination, and prefetch buffers.
Memory support 2 x DDR2 DIMM memory slot:
The Starex G31 mainboard supports the memory of up to 4 gigabytes. It has a 2 x DDR2 DIMM memory slot.
DDR2 is a double data rate synchronous dynamic random access memory (SDRAM) interface that replaces the original DDR SDRAM.
It uses a double pump to transfer data on the rising and falling edges of a bus clock signal, allowing faster data transfer and lower power consumption.
DDR2 memory modules transfer data at a rate of four data transfers per internal clock cycle. This is compared to DDR SDRAM, which transfers data on the rising and falling edges of fewer bus clock signals.
Expansion slot 1 x PCI slot:
A PCI expansion slot is an interface that allows you to attach additional hardware, such as network adapters and graphics cards. Several different sizes exist, with the smallest one being the PCI x1 slot.
An x1 slot only has one PCI lane, meaning that it has the lowest throughput (transfer rate in layman’s terms) of all the slots out there. This is why they’re often used for low-demanding expansion cards.
Storage 4 x SATA connectors:
SATA is an interface use for connecting hard disk drives, solid-state drives, and other mass storage devices to a computer system. It’s an Integrated Drive Electronics (IDE) standard that succeeds Parallel ATA (PATA).
SATA data cables have seven pins, four of which transfer data and three of which ground the device. One end of the cable connects to the drive and the other to a motherboard.
1 x IDE connector:
IDE, which stands for Integrat Drive Electronics, is an interface standard used to connect storage devices to a computer’s motherboard.
The IDE standard is a successor to PATA (Parallel ATA) and is commonly used today, although SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) has replaced IDE in many cases.
Unlike SATA, IDE ribbon cables have three connections, one for the motherboard and two for devices like hard drives. In addition, IDE cables have jumpers that help distinguish whether the device connected to them is a master or slave.
2 x USB 2.0 port:
The 2 x USB 2.0 port design to expand your computer’s port to provide access for devices such as flash drives, printers, keyboards, and mice.
It also features hot-swap capabilities and data transfer speeds up to 480 Mbps, providing the perfect solution for any device!
The USB 2.0 standard introduce in April 2000, offering significantly faster bandwidth and transfer rate. This standard supports higher transfer rates than USB 1.1 and is backward compatible with USB 1. x, as well.
