Toshiba Qosmio X775-Q7170 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 5:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Toshiba Qosmio X775-Q7170 gaming laptop offers great sound and 30-fps gaming, but we wish it had more horsepower and higher resolution. That makes it a medium-priced option for users seeking medium-speed gaming and medium-high-definition (720p rather than 1080p) video viewing, and we`re only medium enthusiastic about it."

ASUS G75V - Gaming Beast @ ocaholic
     Tue, May 15 2012 | 5:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the G75V, ASUS has a new high-end gaming notebook in its portfolio. It comes with a brand new Intel Ivy Bridge quad core CPU and NVIDIAs latest GTX 670M GPU which is based on the very efficient Kepler architecture. You also get a FullHD, 17.3 inch display and we can just say that we want to crack on and check out what how it feels to play and work with this beast."

ECS Z77H2-AX Black Extreme Motherboard Review @ Madshrimps
     Tue, May 15 2012 | 5:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z77H2-AX Motherboard from ECS has gold accents all over the place, comes with a clean design and the offered hardware bundle should be enough for most users; regarding the software which ships with it, most is in trial version mode and we would have preferred to see more which could have added value to the product like THX TruStudio Pro. The UEFI interface can be used with ease, except the RAM section, which is more difficult to use compared to the one found on ASRock motherboards."

Intel DZ77GA-70K Motherboard Components @ Benchmark Reviews
     Tue, May 15 2012 | 5:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel always sends reviewers their top-end motherboards when new CPUs are introduced. Called Extreme Boards, these motherboards are designed for extreme performance and festooned with skulls. The past Intel Extreme Boards I`ve looked at came with early, buggy BIOSes; performed relatively poorly, and had very few additional features other than those provided by the CPU and chipset. So I wasn`t expecting much from the Intel DZ77GA-70K Z77 Express motherboard, but was amazed to find that this time, Intel might have a winner on its hands. Join me as Benchmark Reviews takes a look at Intel`s new Z77 Express standard bearer."

ASUS Maximus V GENE Z77 mATX Motherboard Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Tue, May 15 2012 | 4:09P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Maximus V Gene has everything gamers and overclockers could possibly want: a great BIOS, features galore and the possibility for multi card GPU configurations. All of this -and more- is packed into a svelte mATX configuration which packs enough of a punch that many expensive, full sized ATX boards have something afraid of. * * * * * *"

ECS Z77H2-AX Golden Edition Review
     Tue, May 15 2012 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this respect, the Golden Edition Z77 board delivers the maximum stable clock speed for my test station Core i7 3770K, adjusting only voltages for the memory, CPU, and memory controller. The CPU required 1.285 V with vdroop control disabled for a final voltage of just over 1.3125 V. The memory voltage was set to its specified 1.65 V and the memory controller was set to 1.05 V. Then the bclock multiplier was set to 46 and the bclock was adjusted to 102 MHz for a final clock speed of 4.68 GHz - a nice healthy 1.2 GHz over the baseline 3.5 GHz."

ASUS G75V Review: Gaming Goes Ivy
     Mon, May 14 2012 | 4:09P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While the new G75V is a bit thinner than previous incarnations, it is also quieter and cooler, a rare combination of traits made possible by both a CPU and GPU designed with efficiency in mind. This laptop has the ability to perform like Superman, but it never steps in a phone booth to change clothes. It instead remains mild in manner ? which translates to a better user experience. "

ASRock X79 Extreme9 Motherboard Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Sun, May 13 2012 | 4:09P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
CPUs like the i7-3960X sit at the top of Intel`s product stack and if we are looking to build a top of the range system based around that CPU we need a quality board to maximise our features and performance. ASRock aim to deliver this with their X79 Extreme9 and today it is on our test bench as we put it through a selection of real world and synthetic tests. Can it offer as much as the newer Z77 boards, or maybe even more? Let`s find out."

Gigabyte GA-7PESH1 powered by 2x Xeon E5 2690 under real World workloads @ ocaholic
     Sun, May 13 2012 | 9:15A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Instead of an enthusiast motherboard, this time we will look at a workstation motherboard. Meanwhile it is not a entry level motherboard, Gigabyte provided us with their latest high end motherboard which features up to 512 GB of DDR3 memory running at 1600 MHz, two 8 core / 16 threads processor, a high end LSI SAS controller and more. This time we will not only review the motherboard but also benchmark this dual Xeon Octocore setup under real world workloads/situations. Feel the power!"

Gigabyte X79-UD3 Motherboard Review @ Madshrimps
     Sun, May 13 2012 | 8:11A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Even though main focus is lately on Ivy Bridge, let`s not forget about Intel`s High End range based on the X79 chipset. One of the main drawbacks of Socket 2011 is the total platform cost. Besides the quad core i7-3820, the hexacores versions cost a pretty penny. On top of that, most of the X79 mainstream boards are far from cheap. Prices of 250 euros and more are pretty common. Luckily for us Gigabyte and ASRock have got `let`s call them a more budget friendly motherboard in their X79 lineup. Gigabyte`s type numbering has always been kept pretty simple. Today`s UD3 board is the entry board for their limited socket 2011 series. Limited, because Gigabyte only has got 3 boards left in the X79 range : the UD3, UD5 and a gamer orientated G1 Assasin 2 board. The X79-UD7 board has been EOL`ed. And till now there`s still no sign of the X79-UD5 S(erver) version. But does a cheap board mean that the quality or performance is inferior ? Time to find out what this X79-UD3 has got in store for us."

Preview: Asus Z9PE-8D WS Dual Socket LGA2011 Motherboard @ Ocaholic
     Fri, May 11 2012 | 2:31A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This time we hold the dual socket LGA2011 motherboard from Asus in our hands. The Z9PE-D8 WS, which has been designed to target two markets at the same time. Indeed Asus provided this motherboard with enough features to satisfy both enthusiasts user and professional users (workstations/servers). Did they succed in making such a motherboard? Lets find out in this preview."
