     Tue, Mar 13 2012 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I'm sure you're all familiar with the theory of the Big Bang. The whole creation of the universe theory. Anything that uses the Big Bang name sure has a lot to live up to! MSI has released their second revision of the Big Bang XPower. The first XPower was the Intel X58 chipset, the MSI Big Bang XPower II is built around the latest and greatest Intel X79 chipset. Today we are going to take an in-depth look at the MSI Big Bang XPower II and put it through the paces. With any luck the MSI Big Bang XPower II will make a big bang in our tests and not just a little pop! Quote: "With the Big Bang moniker the MSI Big Bang XPower II has a lot to live up to, after all that is (arguably) how the universe was created. Since the XPower II is from MSI we expected nothing but the best, and they have delivered today! "

X79 Motherboard Roundup: ASRock, ASUS, Gigabyte
     Fri, Mar 09 2012 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel’s X58 chipset made for great platform performance, and even though the chip maker has unleashed many more chipsets since the X58 came out, there hasn’t been a true successor in the high-end of their product line-up (not even the Z68 chipset) until now. The X79 chipset looks to pick up the X58’s poll position, so we decided to bench test a few motherboards from ASRock, ASUS, and Gigabyte to see how Intel's new flagship performs.

All about 3rd generation Intel-Core-processors (Ivy Bridge)
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 4:42P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
During CeBIT 2012, the BIOSTAR GROUP, major manufacturer of motherboards, VGA cards, industrial computer systems and other peripherals, is introducing their all new motherboard line-up for Intel Ivy-Bridge and Sandy-Bridge-E processors.

“CeBIT is undoubtedly the most important trade show for us to meet with customers and partners in order to introduce our latest products and technological innovations. This year we are setting new standards in the industry by showcasing high-performance and function-packed solutions. CeBIT 2012 is bound to become a great success for BIOSTAR“. Focus at this year’s show is the brand-new Z77-chipset based series of motherboards, for third generation Intel-Core-processors (Ivy Bridge). The BIOSTAR-Z77 lineup consists of 5 motherboard models.

While the TZ77XE4, TZ77XE3, TZ77A, and TZ77B come as ATX form factor models, the TZ77MXE is designed as MicroATX platform.

Another highlight is the TPOWER X79 motherboard, built around the Intel X79 Express chipset for high-performance Sandy-Bridge-E processors. This LGA-2011-Socket motherboard is equipped with three PCI-Express x16 slots, supporting AMD’s CrossFireX as well as Nvidia’s SLI multi-graphics technologies for most powerful graphics performance.

Furthermore BIOSTAR is showing an array of Intel Z75 and B75 chipset based motherboard at this year’s CeBIT.


MSI X79A-GD65 (8D) LGA 2011 ATX Motherboard Review
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 4:33P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is always a steep price with upgrading to the newest processors and motherboards, and this is where the X79A-GD65 (8D) may have difficulties against other competitively-priced offerings from Gigabyte and ASUS. Users with deep pockets won`t blink an eye at dropping $300 on a motherboard, but combine that with purchasing quad-channel memory and an i7-3820 and the entire upgrade could cost close to $800 for only three components.
