Free Bundle: 802.11g WiFi module

ALC890 audio codec with DTS support
To differentiate the audio part of ASRock Penryn1600SLIX3-WiFi from other 680i SLI motherboard on the market, we adopted ALC890 audio codec instead of ALC889A audio codec. ALC890 audio codec supports signal to noise ratio of 110dB, and the S/N rate means the higher the ratio, the less obtrusive the background noise is. And what’s best is that ASRock Penryn1600SLIX3-WiFi supports DTS, which makes the sound from game or software become a 7.1 channel audio output through the surround speakers, and it also can simulate the 2-channel audio file, (MP3, WMA..) to a 7.1 channel audio output through the surround speakers.
All solid capacitors
Better capacitor is also one of the most important criteria to users. ASRock Penryn1600SLIX3-WiFi is designed with all solid capacitors, which enhances the durability, over-clocking, reliability and safety of it.
