BIOSTAR A68N-5200 Motherboard Review
     Sat, Oct 22 2016 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Despite a lot of the media focus being on Kaby Lake and AMD’s fabled Zen architecture, it’s important to remember that some users require a new motherboard as a matter of urgency and cannot wait for upcoming solutions. Not only that, in low-end scenarios such as a home office system or HTPC, modern processors provide more than enough performance. Some time ago, BIOSTAR decided to focus their efforts on embedded products after acknowledging the herculean task of trying to compete with ASUS, Gigabyte and other brands in the enthusiast market.

ECS has been known to have some rather crazy board names in the past, but none are as crazy as the ECS Z170-LIGHTSABER! With a name like that, you can only naturally expect one thing: a bunch of lights, right? Or will it lean toward the dark side?

MSI GE62VR 6RF Apache Pro Review:
     Sun, Oct 02 2016 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The migration down from a 28-nanometer manufacturing process to a 16nm FinFET process has been good for NVIDIA, not just for Pascal's ability to push more pixels, but also in terms of power efficiency and performance-per-watt. NVIDIA says it achieved a "quantum leap" in both regards, and nothing we've seen suggests they're wrong. What that ultimately means for end users is that NVIDA's latest mobile GPUs are now more aligned with their desktop equivalents. NVIDIA even went and dropped the "M" designation from its GeForce 10 Series mobile parts, including the GeForce GTX 1060, which is featured in MSI's GE62VR 6RF Apache Pro we'll be showing you here...

Gigabyte Brix S GB-BSi5HT-6200 Ultra Compact SFF
     Thu, Sep 29 2016 | 4:25P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

The focus on power efficiency and performance-per-watt from virtually all semi-conductor manufacturers over the last few years has enabled some pretty impressive hardware in fairly tiny form factors, and it’s now possible to have a fully-functional – and rather quick – desktop PC that literally fits in the palm of your hand.

Take the Gigabyte Brix S (model number BSi5HT-6200) we’ll be showing you here, for example. This tiny machine is packing a Skylake-based Intel Core i5-6200U processor with Hyperthreading support for four threads, dual DDR4 memory channels, built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Gigabit Ethernet, an M.2 slot, SATA support, Thunderbolt, and the list goes on. Yet, the Brix S measures only a few inches squared...

EVGA Z170 Classified K Motherboard Review
     Wed, Sep 28 2016 | 5:06P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a change in Intel Chipsets we get new motherboards based on that chipset. When the Intel Z170 chipset came out, EVGA provided us one of their three ATX Z170 based motherboards, the Z170 FTW. We found that the motherboard provided the basic features that we were looking for in a basic Z170 motherboard; good overclocking features, USB 3.0, and M.2 NVMe support. However, we found that it lacked some of the more advanced features that advanced enthusiasts were looking for; dual M.2 NVMe, and USB 3.1. For these features, you need to look at EVGA’s more advanced Z170 ATX motherboard, the Z170 Classified K. Read on to see if it has what it needs to be your next motherboard!
