  • System clock/calendar with 128 bytes CMOS RAM
  • Standard 1-MB video DRAM onboard plus two upgrade sockets for up to 2-MB video memory
  • 188-pin connector for PCI/ISA slot board
  • External ports:
    • PS/2 keyboard and mouse ports
    • Two buffered high-speed serial ports (NS16C550-compatible UARTs with 16-byte FIFOs
    • One ECP/EPP high-speed parallel port (IEEE 1284-compliant)
    • Video port
  • Onboard controller chipsets
    • System chipsets (ALI M1511, ALI M1512, ALI M1513)
    • PCI local bus VGA with enhanced GUI acceleration (ATI 264VT) or (ATI 264GT)
    • PCI-enhanced local bus IDE (CMD 0646)
    • Ultra I/O (SMC 93X)
    • System and PCI clock generator (Cypress 2257)
  • Plug-and-Play feature (PnP)
  • Power management features (device standby, global standby, and suspend modes)
  • Software shutdown feature (for Windows 95) optional

Memory

The system board comes with four 72-pin SIMM sockets that support 4-MB and 16-MB single-density 60/70ns SIMMs and 8-MB and 32-MB double-density 60/70ns SIMMs. These systems ship with either Extended Data Output (EDO) or Fast Page Mode (FPM) 60/70ns memory. DO NOT MIX FPM and EDO SIMMS. Maximum is 128MB.


Video RAM Upgrade

Aspire Personal Solutions and SOHO systems ship with 1 MB EDO memory onboard and are upgradeable to 2 MB EDO. Aspire Ultimate systems are standard with the maximum 2 MB EDO memory. Order the video upgrade kit from Acer Access P/N 91.AA994.001.

Cache Upgrade

The V55LA-N ships with 256KB Pipeline Burst Cache and is not upgradeable.
