Rounding out the onboard features

Over all the D850GB we have for review is slim on the features. After reading more about the board we've noticed that there are several other versions which come with onboard NIC, diagnostic LED's, and a host of other small features. For the average workstation user, what we have before us is the perfect combination of a slimmed down set of features that performance users generally avoid like the plague anyway.

The only odd part that I noticed on the D850GB was the single serial port. This doesn't affect how I would use this board, but it is something to keep in mind.

Other features which round out the D850GB include wake on LAN, wake on ring, power saving S3 mode, Ir port.


The BIOS that ships with the D850GB is not what you might expect to see from the likes of MSI, Asus, Iwill or Abit. There are absolutely no overclocking features and no way to even tweak memory settings. Granted this motherboard is not really being targeted to this market, but it is kind of funny as you get that "look but don't touch" feeling.

That's not to say there is nothing unique about the BIOS, it's just manifested in a different way. By enabling Intel Rapid Boot the computer will load up quicker than it normally might. The is accomplished by optimizing the boot-up sequence and getting rid of redundant or unnecessary processes.
