Intel P67 Sandy Bridge CPU
     Mon, Jan 03 2011 | 12:24A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Intel P67 Sandy Bridge CPU and chipset is nearly upon us, and to whet your appetite we've posted a new preview of three motherboards from ASUS, Gigabyte, and MSI supporting the new platform. We can't include performance details yet until Sandy Bridge officially launches late tomorrow, unfortunately, but that doesn't mean you can't see what sort of features motherboard manufacturers plan on cramming into their new boards!

Posted by: STAFF
"Today we are taking a look at the H55N-USB3, a mini-ITX socket 1156 motherboard from Gigabyte based on the Intel H55 chipset, allowing you to build a mainstream computer in an SFF (Small Form Factor) case. Let's check it out."

AMD side with the Crosshair IV
     Sat, Jan 01 2011 | 8:36A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Asus makes a pretty mean board, and by using the Hydra controller it is allowing multi-GPU with NVIDIA cards on the AMD platform to continue. Eventually the older NVIDIA 980 and 750 SLI chipsets will go away, and when that happens then it is unlikely that NVIDIA will grant AMD a SLI license for their chipsets. Asus and MSI are both investing a lot into Hydra, and with an entity the size of Asus on board, we can expect to see much better driver support and improved performance over the next several months. We have already seen Lucid increase its driver release rate in the past six months with all of the support (and pushing) they are likely getting from these large manufacturers."

GIGABYTE GA-890GPA-UD3H (890GX) Motherboard
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The GA-890GPA-UD3H is aimed at the upper end of the mainstream consumer and business market with options for six SATA 3.0 drives, two USB 3.0 ports and support for up to 140 Watts CPUs. For the more mainstream consumers (and more than a few business users) the HD 4290 integrated graphics will be more than enough to keep things going smoothly. For those of you looking for a little more, the Crossfire support and two x16 mechanical PCIe 2.0 slots will be sure to keep you happy. Of course, as this is a GIGABYTE motherboard you are going to get the usual Ultra Durable 3 components and the 2 ounces of copper in the PCB. You get all of this for only $134.99 at NewEgg.com which is not a bad price for the flexibility you get here. Now let’s see if the performance can meet the price."

GIGABYTE X58A-UD9 Tested in Quad SLI w/ GTX 480
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Now we come to another test; can the X58A-UD9 really handle Quad SLI with four GTX 480 GPUs? - This is a bigger question than you might think. While we know that GIGABYTE dropped in two NF200 chips (each with 32 PCIe 2.0 lanes), what we do not know is if the power regulation, capacitors and other components can truly handle the current and wattage draw from four GTX 480s along with everything else that would be needed to run the board. That is what we are going to find out today. Well, that and what kind of performance you can expect if you choose to head down this particular path. So, shall we break open the boxes containing four brand new GIGABYTE GTX 480s and fire up the test bench? - The fire extinguishers are standing by for today’s testing runs."

GIGABYTE X58A-UD9 Tested in Three-Way SLI w/ GTX 470 Super Overclock
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We now know that the GIGABYTE X58A-UD9 can give us some great performance. However, we have not yet touched on all of the available features of this board. After all, one of the major selling points is that you can drop up to four AMD or NVIDIA graphics cards into this thing and really push the limits of graphics performance. GIGABYTE made this board big enough for four GPUs, dropped in two NF200 chips to make sure there was enough PCIe 2.0 lanes to run them all at x16 and then topped that off with more power (dual 12-V Molex connectors) to ensure that these slots would get enough power. So, to see what we can get from this we decided to drop in three GIGABYTE GV-N470SO-13I cards. These are GTX 470 based cards from GIGABYTEs “Super Clocked” series. Each of these cards runs at a nice 700MHz core speed, up from the normal 604MHz found on the stock GTX470. They also have GIGABYTE’s WindForce (aftermarket) cooling."

ASRock P55 Extreme4 (P55 Express) Motherboard
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When Intel launched the Lynnfield CPU and the P55 chipset, it was just as the specifications for SATA 3.0 and USB 3.0 were being finalized. Too much was in the works to change the chipset and to integrate SATA 3.0 and USB 3.0 (not that we can do that yet anyway). This left Intel behind in terms of getting SATA 3.0 to the market. Companies like ASUS, GIGABYTE and MSI were forced to work with Marvell and NEC to bring this to the table. However, in almost all cases you ended up with a pair of SATA 3.0 ports and a pair of USB 3.0 ports. With AMD based boards (at least at the 890 level) you can get up to six SATA 3.0 ports for your HDD enjoyment. The pairing of two and two (SATA 3.0 and USB 3.0) is what you normally get with Intel and their products; at least that is until ASRock dropped the P55 Extreme4 on the market. This board boasts four SATA 3.0 ports and four USB 3.0 ports (two on the back and two on the front). This is in addition to a few other nice features that we are sure will come in handy; items like THX audio, eSATA 3.0, OC DNA and mounting holes to fit both 1156 and 775 coolers."

Nvidia's Ion platform announcement
     Thu, Dec 18 2008 | 6:20P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So in conclusion, Nvidia has created some much needed potential for a very restrictive, yet immensely popular platform. The GeForce 9400 MCP is a good part and we can't wait to test the actual product to check how viable the Ion platform is and how well it works with an Atom CPU. Will Nvidia's Ion be price competitive and will Intel offer its Atom CPUs on their own? These two factors will determine whether an Ion dream comes reality, or if we simply forget about it by breakfast.

MSI P45 Platinum Motherboard Review
     Tue, Jul 22 2008 | 3:54P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The board was stable throughout testing and performed about on average with other P45 boards we have seen. One cool feature of the board is the GreenPower utility which can save energy when enabled. This is similar in concept to the EPU on ASUS motherboards and the Dynamic Energy Saver on the Gigabyte motherboards. Performance on the board is similar to the ASUS P5Q Deluxe board also on the P45 chipset and that is a good thing. One thing I wish MSI would do was get rid of the OC jumper, but it does give headroom for high overclocking when it works correctly. This board has many features that will appeal to a variety of users and should be satisfactory as the beginning of your Intel P4 system. Not quite an Editor’s Choice motherboard, but a Hot Product indeed.

Gigabyte EP45-DS3R
     Wed, Apr 30 2008 | 9:49A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Overclocking this board felt exactly the same as overclocking the Gigabyte EP-45 Extreme. The only difference is that the multiplier had to be 6 on this DS3R whereas on the Extreme I could take it to 7. I was able to obtain a front side bus of 500MHz, which is quite good. I definitely could have gone further but the memory was holding me back. As much as I fought, I wasn't able to get anything higher than 500 x 6. I tinkered with the memory until it would finally pass MemTest and Prime 95 in Windows. Overall, it was easy to overclock but the memory was holding the motherboard back."

MSI P35 Platinum Combo Tested at HARDOCP
     Thu, Apr 17 2008 | 4:04P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I would not suggest this board to the usual DIY enthusiast. Who I would suggest it to would be system builders looking to cut down on inventory. Being able to build DDR2 and DDR3 boxes on the same platform could make configuring things simpler. This is not a bad motherboard; it is just not a great enthusiast motherboard for those wanting to build their own box."

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.
