Hardware Logic takes the Corsair VX450W power supply out for a spin. Unwired has a Samsung 32" LCD TV LE-32R87BD TV for us to check out. This is a neat motherboard Phoronix posts its take on the ASRock 4Core 1333-Viiv motherboard.
While most of the rage these days for Intel hardware is about
the P35 and X38 Chipsets, for those looking at an economically-minded
motherboard that may not support all of the latest and greatest features
but can still work well as a Linux desktop, Intel's P965 remains a great
option. One of the motherboards fitting this criteria is the
4Core1333-Viiv from ASRock, which utilizes the Intel P965 + ICH8DH while
is still compatible with Intel Core 2 Quad 1333MHz processors. Through
ASRock's AGI Express, ATI CrossFire support is also possible using this
budget motherboard. But how well does the ASRock 4Core1333-Viiv work
under Linux? We'll tell you in this article as we do our usual
compatibility and benchmarking roundabout.
