The board features a single PCI slot, so if you’re planning to build a router, you could add a second network card.
Sound is handled by an ADI AD 1888 controller (AC’97 codec). It offers neither an optical nor coaxial digital output.
The SiS chipset comes with an integrated Mirage 1 graphics solution. Like most integrated graphics chips, it reserves part of the system RAM as video memory (shared memory).
The included serial (COM) and parallel (LPT) ports will be appreciated by anyone wanting to use the board to control other devices. Only two USB ports are available on the ATX I/O shield; another four USB port headers can be found on the board itself.
