ASRock Z68 Pro3 and Extreme4 (Intel Z68) Motherboard Preview
     Wed, Aug 03 2011 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z68 is a little bit of a funny chipset; it's one that we didn't hear heaps about, but as the time has come closer it's of course gained more and more momentum. From the word go we're already seeing companies offer quite strong looking versions of the chipset in various motherboards and you almost get this sense that the Z68 chipset is going to be a nice replacement for the P67 which has this slight negative stigma regarding the SATA-II port issue that was discovered just after launch. Comparing the Z68 chipset to the P67, you almost feel you're dealing with a more feature packed P67 one. This is kind of echoed throughout the industry as well when you ask people about the introduction of the new chipset. While it's not some snap replacement in the sense that come May 11th the P67 won't exist anymore, as we see the introduction of the X79 LGA2011 chipset, we will be more than likely talking about X79 for high end users and Z68 for mid-range ones."

ASRock Z68 Extreme4 (Intel Z68) Motherboard Review
     Tue, Aug 02 2011 | 4:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Having already previewed three boards that use the Z68 chipset, we already have a good idea of what's going on with the new chipset launched by Intel today. If you haven't already looked at our previews, I'd recommend checking out the ASRock Z68 Pro3 and Extreme4 Preview along with the MSI Z68A-GD80 Preview to get a better idea of what exactly we're dealing with here today. Also, because we went into so much detail on the motherboards in those previews, we won't be looking at the board or package here today, as everything is covered in extensive detail already. So because we've been able to have a look at this board and others in great detail already, we'll be able to instead get stuck straight into the fun stuff like the BIOS, Overclocking and of course, performance."

ASUS F1A75-M Pro AMD APU Motherboard Review
     Mon, Aug 01 2011 | 4:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The wait is over, AMD has officially lifted the embargo on the new desktop version of Llano. Everybody was impressed with the mobile versions of the AMD A8 series of APU's, but will they hold up against the stiff competition in the desktop world? Join us as we take a look at the performance of our first Socket FM1 APU motherboard the ASUS F1A75-M Pro! Quote: "Where the ASUS F1A75-M Pro truly excelled today was the performance of the integrated graphics. Every one of our graphics tests that we compared the Intel HD Graphics 3000 to the AMD A8-3850 with AMD Radeon HD 6550D there was a clear and decisive winner. For our recap of the graphics performance let's start with Total War: Shogun 2 in DirectX 9 mode. The ASUS F1A75-M Pro was able to pull out an average that was 143.4% faster than the Intel system at a resolution of 1280x1024..."

MSI A75MA-G55 AMD APU Motherboard Performance Review
     Mon, Aug 01 2011 | 12:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MSI A75MA-G55 is our second micro-ATX form factor socket FM1 motherboard for AMD's new APUs that we are going to look at. The AMD Llano platform is a great little mainstream platform for the casual gamer and everyday user. How will the MSI A75MA-G55 compare to our previous socket FM1 motherboard or even the Intel Z68 system? Read on to find out! Quote "When it comes down to it, the MSI A75MA-G55 APU Motherboard did just about everything we asked of it. Comparing the performance numbers from the AMD Radeon HD 6550D on board the AMD A8-3850 APU between the MSI A75MA-G55 and the ASUS F1A75-M Pro the MSI A75MA-G55 came out on top more often than not. When we fired up the MSI A75MA-G55 APU motherboard up with our XFX Radeon HD 6950 we were pleased with the performance numbers that we saw..."

ASRock A75 Extreme6 (AMD A75) Motherboard Review
     Tue, Jul 26 2011 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Like any major chipset release, there's bound to be a bunch of boards come in and the release of the new Llano platform is no different. The A75 board that sat at the top of the pile today when it came to grabbing the next product to test is the ASRock A75 Extreme6. Before I started writing this, I actually headed over to NewEgg just to see what kind of price point the A75 Extreme6 came in at, and I found myself legitimately surprised to see that it was currently the most expansive A75 board at $139.99. Don't get me wrong, $139.99 is an extremely good price, but it's just a counteraction to the fact that we usually associate ASRock with offering us some of the cheapest boards on the market. Saying that, we've seen more expensive boards come from the company and stand out. Can the $139.99 A75 Extreme6 be another board that stands out for ASRock? Well, there's only one way to find out. First we'll start by checking out the package of the motherboard. Once that's done we'll take the time to have a closer look at the board itself, its layout and some of the main features that are on offer."

ASUS Sabertooth P67 Motherboard
     Tue, Jul 26 2011 | 2:37P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Even though the Intel Z68 chipset is out there, motherboards based on the Intel P67 continue to be attractive options for systems based on Intel socket 1155 CPUs. In fact, according to ASUS, the sales of P67-based motherboards are still outperforming those of Z68-based products. The Sabertooth P67 is a top mid-range (or entry high-end, depending on your point of view) motherboard that focuses on quality. Let's see what is so special about this model."

ASRock H61M/U3S3
     Mon, Jul 25 2011 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"At Phoronix we have reviewed several different motherboards under Linux since the Sandy Bridge launch with either the P67 or H67 chipsets, but in this review we are looking at one that uses the Intel H61 chipset. The particular motherboard under test is the ASRock H61M/U3S3, which was launched a few months back, but we've been waiting for the Intel Sandy Bridge open-source support under Linux to mature a bit more."

Sapphire Pure Platinum A75 (AMD A75) Motherboard Review
     Sun, Jul 24 2011 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With the first Sapphire motherboard we looked at, we found ourselves really impressed with it. The X58 offering we tested performed well and offered great overclocking potential. When we got the P67 offering from them it was a good board as well, but in such a competitive market we found it just didn't really stand out from the competition. Today, though, we look at their latest offering and it comes in the form of the Sapphire Pure Platinum A75. And as you can tell, it's of course based on the latest AMD chipset, the A75, which holds the Lynx APU that we've quickly grown to love. So, the question is, can the Pure Platinum A75 stand out a bit more than the P67 board we looked at? The odds look good at the moment with having looked at only a few A75 boards. What worries me the most, though, is that while Sapphire did well with the X58 board we looked at, that was an old chipset. When it came to the newer P67, the performance wasn't as strong and it's a concern that after getting comfortable with a chipset they can create a good board, but at the launch of a new one they can't be as strong."

Gigabyte G1.Assassin X58 Motherboard Review
     Sun, Jul 24 2011 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte’s G1 Killer series of X58 Express-based motherboards are specially designed for gamers. There are three products in this particular line up: the G1 Assassin, G1 Sniper, and G1 Guerrilla. In a military motif, all three come with a black and green color scheme, along with heat sink designs that resemble gun barrels and magazine clips.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
