GIGABYTE X99 SLI Review, Excellence On A Budget!
     Fri, Jul 24 2015 | 1:19P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
GIGABYTE has released an entire pack of motherboards based on the Intel X99 chipset: Champion, Gaming, and Super Overclock. And now GIGABYTE has released the X99-SLI board. From the first glance, the board looks to be chock full of enthusiast-level hardware, with lots to offer most end users. To field the board with all that high-end hardware at $250 (NewEgg) , they had to make a few compromises, but based on price/performance, there’s a good bang for the buck factor on the GIGABYTE GA-X99-SLI.

Intel Core i7-5775C With Iris Pro Graphics Review: Broadwell For Desktops
     Fri, Jul 24 2015 | 1:19P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have covered Intel’s Broadwell microarchitecture extensively over the last few months. The relatively high-performance and low-power characteristics of Broadwell make it a good fit for a wide range of devices and systems. And as such, Broadwell has found its way into everything from notebooks and tablets, to an array of All-In-Ones and Intel’s own NUC ultra-small-form-factor systems. Broadwell, however, just recently—as in the last few weeks—made it to the DIY and full-sized desktop market. 14nm Broadwell processors weren’t originally destined for the channel, but Intel ultimately changed course and launched a handful of 5th Generation Core processors, the most powerful of which we’ll show you here today, the Core i7-5775C...

Gigabyte MU70-SU0 (Intel C612) Server Motherboard Review
     Thu, Jul 23 2015 | 12:45P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel’s C612 chipset brought along a lot of improvements for the workstation and server platform, not just support for Haswell-EP Xeon E5 processors, but also DDR4 memory support at full speed. Today I’m taking a look at one of Gigabyte’s many great server solutions and while most people aren’t that familiar with Gigabyte’s server-side of things, I can assure you that it is a quite impressive line-up. This is the first time we’ve taken a look at a server motherboard, and while we’ve analysed workstation type boards, you will see us opening up our site to a lot more content revolving around servers, their components and everything in between. With that in mind, I’m pleased to start our new server motherboard review section off with a feature packed, small but mighty motherboard from Gigabyte; the MU70-SU0.

ASUS Sabertooth X99
     Sat, Jul 18 2015 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Good looks are just one part of the equation, since this board is built with a plethora of military spec hardware that ensures the Sabertooth X99 is going to be around long term. To make sure you make it well past the five-year warranty, ASUS does some serious burn-in testing and compatibility checks. Using 1000+ devices over 7000 hours, you get incredible hardware compatibility checks to make sure that everything works. From a performance perspective, if you run the same hardware and factory defaults in the BIOS you are going to see similar performance results across the board when comparing the Sabertooth X99 to any other X99 motherboard. That is really an expectation, but it's the overclocking performance and reliability aspect of this board that sets it apart from the masses.”

Posted by: STAFF
For now ASRock is the only motherboard manufacturer that has a mini ITX X99 motherboard in its portfolio. This allows for some rather interesting builds but nevertheless you should be a aware that you'll have to make some compromises with this little beast.
