     Thu, Apr 12 2012 | 4:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In preparation for the impending arrival of the company’s 3rd Generation Core processor products based on its Ivy Bridge microarchitecture, Intel has readied a new chipset dubbed the Z77 Express. We have already been able to show you a number of Z77 Express-based motherboards, thanks to a handful of sneak peeks while out at CES early this year and a few briefings that took place afterwards, but today we can finally give you the full monty on the chipset itself. We have been playing with a few Z77 Express-based motherboards for the past couple of weeks, evaluated their performance, and have gathered up our data for you here. On tap in this round-up we have motherboards from MSI, Gigabyte, Asus and Intel, namely the MSI Z77A-GD65, Gigabyte Z77Z-UD5H, Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe, and Intel DZ77GA-70K...

Today we've got a first look at three of the first motherboards using Intel's new Z77 chipset, designed for the upcoming Ivy Bridge processors. The time is not yet right to publish any benchmark scores for the new processor on the Z77, but in the meantime we wanted to fill you in on what the fuss over the new chipset is about:

Gigabyte unveils motherboards equipped with 7 series chipsets in Beijing
     Wed, Apr 11 2012 | 1:49P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Following Intel's launch of 7 series chipsets, Z77, H77, Z75 and B75, on April 8, Gigabyte Technology on April 10 unveiled motherboards equipped with such chipsets in Beijing, China, according to the company. Gigabyte is expected to ship 20 million motherboards in 2012, growing 14.3% from 2011, according to industry sources. As for motherboard makers' actions of selling their 7-series motherboards ahead of Intel's official announcement, sources from motherboard makers pointed out that Intel is considering punishing these players to avoid such behavior in the future.

Intel Z77 Chipset
     Wed, Apr 11 2012 | 1:42P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Overclocking the MSI Z77A-GD65 was more of the same type of Sandy Bridge overclocking we have seen in the past on the Z68 as well as the P67 platform with simple bclock and bclock multiplier adjustments to creep up on the highest possible clock speed. This of course continues to be a limiting factor in how far your chip will overclock. The MSI Z77A-GD65 proved to be fully capable of delivering an overclock similar to what I have reached on Z68 and P67 boards in the past with the test CPU. This means a clock speed just north of 4.9GHz with a maximum bclock multiplier of 47 and a bclock that ranges from 104MHz to 105MHz using an applied 1.495V with LLC set to high. Memory overclocking is limited on my CPU but still it managed to pull off a 2133MHz+ clock speed."

     Wed, Apr 11 2012 | 1:29P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now in its fifth generation, ASUS ROG (Republic of Gamers) has launched its Maximus V Series motherboards with the Maximus V GENE. This micro-ATX powerhouse is built using the latest Intel® Z77 chipset, which supports Intel’s latest LGA1155 processors. Featuring full PCI-Express Gen-3 capabilities with Intel’s® 3rd Generation processor the Republic of Gamers team equips the Maximus V GENE with exclusive features such as the Extreme Engine DIGI+ II™ power control design, SupremeFX III™ gaming audio, Intel® Ethernet with ROG GameFirst software and the newly added mPCIe Combo™ card. ROG Exclusive mPCIe Combo™ Card offer users the best expansion options The mPCIe Combo card is a new innovation by the ROG team, combining the twin functions of mPCIe with mSATA into a single, extensible add-in card that still allows full use of the PCI-Express slots for multi-GPU graphics. Use an mSATA SSD with Intel’s® Smart Response Technology to greatly improve hard-drive performance or as an ultra-fast OS drive to free up standard SATA ports for other uses. The combination of a standard mPCIe socket on the other side allows unique upgrades such as WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G/4G, GPS and other connectivity options.

The Maximus V GENE is true to the Republic of Gamers core, as a motherboard built for overclocking. Do not accept imitations or compromise with first generation digital designs. The upgraded Extreme Engine DIGI+ II™ includes a 8+4+2 (CPU, iGPU, DRAM) phase design offers the best in precise digital power control from two DIGI+ controllers. Combined with class leading ROG UEFI BIOS functions, such as the new pre-configured memory IC profiles, specially sourced electrical components and industry first trace designs the Maximus V Gene yields an unmatched overclocking experience for enthusiasts.

SupremeFX III™ Sound – Premium Gaming Audio Designed to bring gamers the best possible integrated audio, the SupremeFX III™ sound is a wholly separate audio PCB, identified by its ‘redline’ adjoining the main GENE V motherboard. SupremeFX Shielding technology maximizes the audio quality by further isolating the audio processing from EMI, encasing the chipset under a custom aluminum cap. Combined with a large 1500uF buffer capacitor to provide sufficient energy for even the loudest sounds, SupremeFX III™ attains a lossless audio of up to 110dB SNR. The addition of X-Fi Xtreme Fidelity, EAX Advanced HD 5.0, Creative Alchemy and THX TruStudio PRO complete the lineup of audio technologies that offer an incredibly immersive gaming experience. Intel Ethernet, ROG GameFirst and LucidLogix Virtu MVP Intel® Ethernet and ROG GameFirst software combines up to 35% saving in CPU usage with network traffic prioritizing, while LucidLogix Virtu MVP support enables a new hybrid graphics mode that boosts overall GPU performance by up to 60%.
