A Futurelooks News Flash - ASUS Maximus IV Extreme P67 LGA1155 ATX Motherboard Review
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 9:45A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Futurelooks checks out a board that lets INTEL`s P67 Platform go down with a fight, kicking and screaming ... *ASUS Maximus IV Extreme P67 LGA1155 ATX Motherboard Review** * The Republic of Gamers series is the top of the line when it comes to ASUS? illustrious motherboards and video cards. But, it was the launch of the ROG motherboards back in 2006 that started the road to hard core gaming with a side of overclocking. Since then, ROG has evolved from good looking to fantastically designed motherboards and video cards with performance in mind. Still, many people aren?t sure what it is they?re getting when it?s an official ROG product. Hopefully we figure that out with our look at the ASUS Maximus IV Extreme P67 Motherboard. * * *"

ASUS Sabertooth X79 (Intel X79) Motherboard Review
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 9:45A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We first saw the Sabertooth name pop up with the introduction of the P67 chipset. The next time we`d see the name show up wasn`t in the form of the Z68, though, it was instead in the AMD based 990FX chipset and it didn`t quite have that same look about it as the shroud that covered the board wasn`t present. While passed over on the Z68 chipset, the Sabertooth has appeared straight away come launch of the X79 chipset and brings with it the TUF Components that give ASUS the confidence to strap a massive 5 year warranty onto the board."

ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe Motherboard Review @ OCIA.net
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?After my recent review of the impressive ASUS Sabertooth P67 board, I was wondering what ASUS could have in store for us next. Intel released their Z68 chipset not too long ago and ASUS is certainly on schedule with their Z68 lineup. There is a lot to choose from with 10 different Z68 offerings from the company. Today we are going to take a look at the ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe, second in line only to the Maximus IV Extreme-Z as ASUS` top Z68 motherboard.?"

USB 3.0 Speed Tests: 7-Way Host Controllers Roundup
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 7:11A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Believe us when we say that this is one of the most epic reviews we`ve ever put together. Not because it was the hardest roundup we`ve ever done, but it`s by far the most time consuming one and it doesn`t even have anything to do with the benchmarks we ran. We thought it`d be a good idea to do a comparative review of the various USB 3.0 host controllers out there, as by now we`ve finally reached a stage where there`s some competition in the market with at least three major players and a couple of smaller ones. VR-Zone is also proud to have a world exclusive first review of the upcoming Renesas D720201 host controller which is launching later this year as part of this roundup."

Gigabyte GA-H67N-USB3-B3 jetzt ausführlich getestet
     Sat, Jun 11 2011 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ende März hatte ich bereits Unboxing Pictures des "GA-H67N-USB3-B3" Mini-ITX Mainboards veröffentlicht. Auch davor hatte ich bereits zahlreich über das Board berichtet (hier/hier/hier). Nun habe ich den Review Artikel zum ausführlichen Test hier im Portal veröffentlicht: "Wie schon beim vorherigen Mainboard Review mag die hier von uns verwendete Mainboard/Prozessor-Kombination mit dem Core i5-2300 aufgrund der 95W Wärmeverlustleistung nicht besonders sparsam und somit sinnvoll erscheinen. Ich wurde im laufe der Tests jedoch wiederum eines Besseren belehrt, denn auch mit dem Gigabyte "GA-H67N-USB3-B3" wurde nur bedingt mehr verbraucht als mit dem "DH67CF" bei gleicher Testkonfiguration. Da es ja immerhin auch kleinere, verbrauchsärmere und auch günstigere Prozessoren der 2.Generation Core i gibt, kann man das Board für Systeme im Home Bereich durchaus empfehlen, sei es als Home Cinema PC (HTPC) oder auch als Desktop System. Ersteres sicherlich auch aufgrund der exzellenten Multimediakonnektivität, mit ihren zwei HDMI Anschlüssen sowie 7.1ch Sound mit zusätzlichem S/PDIF Ausgang." (...)

The A890GXM-A2 takes the strengths of the A890GXM-A previously reviewed, and adds what is missing: USB 3.0. Sounds well enough, but as you'll see in our latest Socket AM3 motherboard review, we were taken for quite a ride with this offering!

Budget Graphics Card Comparison: 13 Sub-$150 Boards Tested
     Fri, Jun 10 2011 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For all the glory that comes with owning a dual-GPU video card, the reality is most hardware buffs don't have the coin to fund their desires. Instead, the typical system builder settles for a graphics solution in the $100 to $250 territory, which generally provides enough performance to play any modern game with reasonable settings. Fortunately for cash-strapped gamers, intense competition between AMD and Nvidia ensures that the sub-$150 market is well stocked. Along with wallet-friendly HD 6000 and GTX 500 products, many older mainstream cards have been demoted to the budget bracket. We'll compare the most relevant ones in this review, with a total of thirteen graphics card models tested.

GIGABYTE GA-A75M-UD2H Socket FM1 mATX Motherboard Review
     Fri, Jun 10 2011 | 11:10A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Futurelooks checks out a board to support that AMD FM1 APU ... *GIGABYTE GA-A75M-UD2H Socket FM1 mATX Motherboard Review* The best analogy of how a computer system works is the human body. It provides inspiration to the design of all machines and today?s modern PCs are no different. If the power supply unit is the heart of your computer, then the nervous system of a computer is the motherboard. Earlier on, we took an in depth look at AMD?s APUs (A8-3850/A6-3650) and the new Llano platform. Today, we are going to give you a closer look at the options for the ?nervous system? we spoke of: The GIGABYTE A75M-UD2H. But is it the right nervous system for your AMD Fusion based PC? Let?s find out! * * *"

Jetway NF81-T56N-LF mITX Motherboard
     Fri, Jun 10 2011 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For quite some time, Intel has been unopposed in the low budget computing department. From the first underclocked Intel Celeron powered Eee PC, to the latest generation of Intel Atom based computers, this whole sector of the market has been dominated by Intel. The major competitors have tried to get a share of the market before with VIA's Nano and AMD's Athlon Neo, but both have failed in this perilous quest. Most of the problems with these two processors were their availability, interest from consumers and manufacturers, and, for the latter part, power draw and heat. With these processors, the incumbent was basically unmoved and still left with the majority of this market sector. Despite these setbacks, AMD had tried yet again to break into this market. Today, we have one of the first few Brazos based motherboards from Jetway. Jetway is known mostly for their commercial and industrial products, but since the Mini-ITX fad, more and more users are taking a serious look at Jetway. Well today, we managed to get our hands on the Jetway NF81-T56N-LF -- which has an AMD Fusion processor with built-in graphics. It is similar to that of the Intel Atom D525, but they provide an integrated AMD Radeon HD 6310 instead. The processor itself is the AMD eOntario T56N, which is said to perform similar or better in comparison with the Intel Atom D525, and it isn't even the top of the line in the Brazos line of CPUs. So without further adieu, let's take a look at how well the AMD Brazos based Jetway NF81-T56N-LF performs against the well established duo of Intel Atom and NVIDIA's ION 2.

ASUS Sabertooth P67 Sandy Bridge motherboard
     Fri, Jun 10 2011 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With most of the focus of the last month or so on the Z68 launch, P67 chipset may have taken a back seat but the motherboards based around it are still highly appealing. The ASUS Sabertooth in particular is a unique P67 board which sports a great price along with high end features.

Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3 Detailed Review - Z68 Done Right
     Wed, Jun 08 2011 | 12:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The much riled and awaited Sandy Bridge platform and Cougar Point chipset were released at the beginning of January, signalling the start of a dominant new era for Intel. Indeed, with AMD’s upcoming Bulldozer lineup still in the process of rolling out, Intel theoretically had six months to saturate and hold a firm grip in the consumer market. The timing could not have been better; a new year, the start of a new decade, and a new architecture released during the holiday season, a time when most consumers are ready to spend their saved up money on a new build, or upgrade. The pieces were in place...but not all of them fell in the right places. The Cougar Point chipset turned out to be the culprit of the woes that were to follow for Intel. Cougar Point, the backbone of P67 and H67 motherboards, was revealed to have had issues with the SATA 3GBPS ports, the primary problem being faster degradation of the ports/controller. This led to mass recalls of the P67 and H67 motherboards, a move which not only cost Intel billions of dollars upfront, but also cost three months’ worth of obtaining a significant lead over Bulldozer. Not only that, but by the time the new “B3” revisions started making their way out to retailers in March, the beefier, upgraded Z68 motherboards were starting to expose themselves for the same 1155 socket.

Gigabyte G1.Assassin Socket 1366 Motherboard
     Fri, Jun 03 2011 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The G1.Assassin offers all that one could want or need in a gaming system, all on one motherboard. It starts with very uniquely styled heats inks that would make any first person shooter very happy. For the audio freaks out there you'll be extremely pleased with this next feature, as Gigabyte has embedded Creative's own X-Fi based (CA20K2) gaming sound card. Yes that's right, Gigabyte has quite literally stuffed a complete X-Fi card onto the Assassin and Sniper motherboards! This will push your speaker system to the limits, or even up to 150O headphones thanks to onboard amplifier. To keep you fragging online till all hours of the night and with a very low latency, a Bigfoot Killer 2100 NIC is also featured. That is barely even touching on what all this board packs. So join us as we dig into this truly killer board and provide you all the juicy details!

Crosshair V Formula (AMD 990FX) Motherboard Review
     Fri, Jun 03 2011 | 5:11A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Alongside the launch of the new AMD 990FX chipset, I think most people would like to be seeing the next generation of AMD CPUs come with it. As AMD don't hop around changing the socket every 5 minutes like Intel, though, the interesting thing is, that while we've got a delay in the Bulldozer line of CPUs the 990FX based motherboards can still be released. What's interesting is that AMD and its partners don't seem all that keen on getting the new 990FX based boards reviewed. There are two major features that the new 990FX chipset offer; SLI and Bulldozer CPU support, neither of which we'll be looking at today. The reason for this is because one isn't released, and the other isn't going to be nearly appreciated as much using CPU architecture that has been around for ages now."

ASUS P6X58-E WS Workstation Motherboard
     Thu, Jun 02 2011 | 4:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS P6X58-E WS is today's sample, and is designed to be the center of your workload, providing you with all the power and reliability needed to run a workstation. Similar to the Sabertooth P67 we recently reviewed, this new motherboard is built with all the highest quality components to insure a long and reliable operating lifespan. Rather, it is the long days in the office or the long dark night sitting behind the monitor in which ASUS is hoping to be the rock to get that next project done.
