details on the AMD Bulldozer architecture
     Fri, Feb 25 2011 | 1:28P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD has provided further details on the Bulldozer architecture at the ISSCC 2011 conference. These include an overall view of each module and some of the physical characteristics, a redesign of the schedulers and integer execution units, and a comprehensive look at power saving features that allow the Bulldozer core to exist in moderate power and TDP ranges. We cover the highlights of the submitted papers and make some guesses at what the final product will look like.

"All indications so far point to Bulldozer being at the very least a competitive design. I believe that Intel will have an advantage in instructions per clock when handling single threaded and lightly threaded workloads. But AMD certainly looks to counter that by providing processors which will clock higher than the Intel counterparts, yet still remain in the same thermal envelope as the competition."

First-tier motherboard makers to begin shipping boards with fixed Intel chipsets
     Fri, Feb 25 2011 | 1:11P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Asustek Computer, Gigabyte Technology, Micro-Star International (MSI), Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) and ASRock have all received small-volume shipments of fixed 6-series chipsets from Intel and will begin delivery of new P67, H67 and H61-based motherboards soon.

Shipments of 6-series-based motherboards will resume to 50% of their normal volumes by mid-March and reach full shipments by mid-April, according to industry sources.

Asustek, Gigabyte and MSI have all announced measures, including replacement of motherboards, to solve related problems caused by the defective chips.

ASRock said that it will extend the guarantee period from the current three, to four years for clients who carry out a replacement before June 30, 2011. New motherboards with fixed chipsets will be labeled with "B3" on their packaging and also on the motherboards."

Posted by: STAFF
“The Sapphire Pure Black X58 is the company's first foray into the premium Intel motherboard market, and this board sports gorgeous styling, strong features, and impressive performance. But it's in for a very tough fight against some established companies and products. Can the Pure Black X58 measure up?”

AMD's Brazos and Intel's Pine Trail
     Wed, Feb 23 2011 | 4:37P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are about to commit a terrible crime against the holy writ of product segmentation. We're about to consider the merits of AMD's Brazos and Intel's Pine Trail versus a whole range of full-grown desktop CPUs, a ridiculously unfair endeavor if ever there was one.

Intel Core i3-2100T and BH67CF Mini-ITX Motherboard Review
     Mon, Feb 21 2011 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our launch coverage of Intel’s Sandy Bridge we took an in-depth tour of the platform’s capabilities. But our previous coverage was limited to a higher end member of the CPU lineup with a 95 watt TDP, that made is less ideal for dedicated home theater PC (HTPC) use--especially considering its tantalizing siblings scheduled to arrive shortly thereafter. Fortunately we now have a 35 watt Intel Core i3-2100T and DH67CF Mini-ITX motherboard in hand and will be taking a detailed look at the lowest powered desktop CPU and smallest LGA1155 motherboard Intel has to offer.

ASRock Fatal1ty P67 Professional Socket 1155 Motherboard
     Sun, Feb 20 2011 | 12:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yes, the ASRock Fatal1ty P67 Professional has a lot of features that we have not seen in a motherboard before, the most unique of which would be the Fatal1ty Mouse Port. What it does is allow you to adjust the designated USB port to whatever polling rate you wish, from 125 Hz to 1000Hz, which means you could even use the same polling of 500Hz that Fatal1ty uses. As this is just one of the many aspects of the motherboard, follow along and we will give you the full skinny on this new and exciting ASRock review.

Sapphire PURE Black P67 Hydra Socket 1155 Motherboard
     Sat, Feb 19 2011 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
However, our Sapphire sample today is not the PURE Black X58. No sir, this beauty is none other but the PURE Black P67! Based on Intel’s newest chipset, codenamed "Cougar Point", and is made for the Sandy Bridge processors. While it may not have the white PCB we liked so much about the PURE Crossfire 3200, the PURE Black P67 does offer something over most of the other P67 motherboard manufacturers: the LUCID Hydra technology onboard. If you haven't been up on the current board tech, what this does is gives the user a unique ability by being able to combine two different vendor's graphics accelerators and allow work in tandem for increased performance. Sapphire may not be the first company to the table with a P67-based board offering the Hydra chip, but they sure look to be doing it better than the rest! So follow along as we put this beast through the gamut of tests and see if it passes with flying colors, or gets a Black mark...

ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 AMD 880G Motherboard
     Sat, Feb 19 2011 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“A couple of weeks ago we took a look at the ASUS M4A88TD-M/USB3 mATX motherboard. Well today we will be taking a look at its big brother the M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3. This motherboard features the same AMD 880G northbridge and SB850 southbridge as its smaller counterpart. AMD’s 880G chipset is sort of the little sister of the 890GX chipset, but is set to be more affordable, while still offering the same performance. This chipset also offers native SATA 6GB/s and USB 3.0 support. Let’s take a look at the M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 and see how well it performs."
