ASRock X99 Taichi Motherboard Review
     Sun, Nov 06 2016 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
X99 holds a relatively exclusive status in the PC market, even among DIY builders and enthusiasts, since the entry costs to the platform are higher in a variety of areas. ASRock addresses this price-limitation directly with the new X99 Taichi – a motherboard that promises a mid-range feature-set for an entry-level price.

GIGABYTE Enables Support for Intel® Next-Gen CPUs
     Wed, Nov 02 2016 | 10:29A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd, a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, is proud to announce support for Intel’s next-generation LGA 1151 socket processors. Compatibility for the entire line-up of Z170, H170, B150 and H110 series motherboards are available with a simple BIOS update.

With multiple ways to update a GIGABYTE Motherboard users can rest at ease knowing that this update can be completed with little to no effort. One popular method for users to flash the BIOS would be to leverage the world renowned Q-Flash, this feature directly in the BIOS allows users to flash the firmware from a USB drive after they’ve downloaded the most updated BIOS into the flash drive.

Another alternative for users, if using a flagship motherboard such as the Z170X-Gaming G1 would be to flash their BIOS with Q-Flash Plus, allowing users to do so without the need to have the CPU or memory installed. These BIOS updates can be downloaded from the GIGABYTE website for users to flash on to their 100 series motherboards.

GIGABYTE engineers have tested and validated all GIGABYTE 100 series motherboards to ensure users will have optimal performance and compatibility for the latest Intel® Core™ Processors.

ASUS TUF SABERTOOTH 990FX R3.0 Review
     Mon, Oct 31 2016 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS TUF SABERTOOTH range was arguably an instant hit with its military themed camo colours of golden, greeny browns and the TUF promise of an extra rugged, extra strong design backed by a 5 year warranty. Today, the TUF lineup of products have matured aesthetically, delivering an unexpected degree of control over your system to ensure an absolute level of robustness. Of course, the 990FX chipset has something in common with the TUF lineup, it's nearly the same age (within a year?). Despite that, competitive pricing of the FX chips present favourable value and it makes sense to refresh the tired old SABERTOOTH 990FX. Though there was a second revision of the SABERTOOTH 990FX, it mostly brought about minor changes, and underworks that the end consumer may not really notice, other than the heatsink colour change. This time, the R3.0 delivers a whole lot more.

Gigabyte X99-Ultra Gaming LGA2011-3 Motherboard Review
     Fri, Oct 28 2016 | 11:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since the release of Intel’s latest Broadwell-E architecture, motherboard vendors have compiled a number of intriguing designs which cater towards the HEDT user. Unlike the majority of Haswell-E creations which opted for an understated theme, Broadwell-E motherboards tend to employ a more aggressive styling. This is probably due to the popularity of RGB lighting and prosumers willing to pay a premium to go beyond the typical 4-core/8-thread solution. Judging by the early Kaby Lake details, it seems the X99 platform is the only option for content creators and professionals who work with heavy multi-threaded workloads.

BIOSTAR A68N-5200 Motherboard Review
     Sat, Oct 22 2016 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Despite a lot of the media focus being on Kaby Lake and AMD’s fabled Zen architecture, it’s important to remember that some users require a new motherboard as a matter of urgency and cannot wait for upcoming solutions. Not only that, in low-end scenarios such as a home office system or HTPC, modern processors provide more than enough performance. Some time ago, BIOSTAR decided to focus their efforts on embedded products after acknowledging the herculean task of trying to compete with ASUS, Gigabyte and other brands in the enthusiast market.
