ASUS Vista Mainboards

ASUS has just launched four new mainboards with specific support for new features in Windows Vista. Both the AMD-based M2N32-SLI Premium and its Intel-focused equivalent the P5B Premium now ship in Vista Editions with support for an attachment named the ScreenDUO (pictured); as with the external display on the Taiwanese company's W5Fe notebook, the ScreenDUO uses Vista's SideShow feature to display e-mail, RSS feeds , and other information even while the host PC is turned off.

Both these mainboards as well as the more mainstream M2N Plus and P5B-Plus also support the AI Remote, a wireless control that can remotely power the computer or launch specific programs, as well as ASAP technology that improves the responsiveness of the system during start-up or while launching apps. The four boards should all be ready at or near Vista's launch next week. [photo via Mobile Whack]
