The Intel motherboard E139761 uses the Advanced Technology Extended (ATX) form factor standard, with a physical measurement of 12 by 8 inches (30.5 by 20.3 centimeters). Each E139761 supports an Intel Pentium II or III processor. The front-side bus speed, which is the rate at which the chip connects with the motherboard for data transmission via the front-side bus interface, should be 66 or 100MHz. Also, the motherboard supports processors with an instruction set architecture (ISA) speed of 8.33MHz.

Chipset and Memory

The Intel chipset on the E139761 is the 440BX, which contains the 82443BX host bridge/controller. Also included are three 168-pin Dual Inline Memory Module slots, which are based on first-generational Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory architecture. The DIMM RAM slots combine for a maximum capacity of 384MB. The memory access speed options are 66MHz and 100MHz.
