ASUS P8P67 5-Way Motherboard Roundup
     Mon, Jan 03 2011 | 9:51A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“ASUS is known for producing a wide range of motherboards to suit just about any preference, need, or budget, and today we have 5 motherboards from their new P67 lineup for review. Each of these boards share many similarities but also some distinct differences, and rather than splitting them up into separate reviews, we've decided to compile them all into one big roundup. A one-stop ASUS P67 shop, as it were.”

GIGABYTE P67A-UD7 (Intel P67 Express) Motherboard
     Mon, Jan 03 2011 | 5:29A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In the last year or so GIGABYTE has been on a rampant run to a leader in the enthusiast and mainstream markets. With offerings like the X58A-UD7, the 890FXA-UD7, the P55A-UD7 and of course the X58A-UD9, we have watched GIGABYTE work their way back to the lead group in the motherboard market. At every step of the way GIGABYTE has been working with partners, press and consumers to make their products better and to actually give you what you want from a component motherboard. Now things are different; they have had a year of input and also have a new chipset and CPU to build upon. Can GIGABYTE pull this one off, too? - Today we are taking a look at one of the first P67 based motherboards on the market; the P67A-UD7. This board features what you would expect from an enthusiast level product including SLI, Crossfire, Dual Channel RAM, good cooling at the board level and more."

Intel Sandy Bridge: Core i5-2500K and DH67BL Motherboard
     Mon, Jan 03 2011 | 12:53A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Intel gambled by packaging its graphics processing unit (GPU) with the central processing unit (CPU) in last year’s Clarkdale the home theater PC (HTPC) niche benefited immensely from the power saving, performance gain and features like HD audio bit streaming provided by the new platform. The bet obviously paid off, because this year’s Sandy Bridge melds the GPU and CPU on the same die promising significant performance improvements for both units, dedicated transcode hardware, further reductions in TDP and frame sequential 3D Blu-ray (BD)/HDMI 1.4 support. As good as Clarkdale was it was not perfect however, with issues in the level of refresh rate precision used to playback video content - most notably using 24Hz instead of 23.976Hz to handle 24p. Today we are fortunate to have an Intel Core i5-2500K CPU/GPU and BH67BL motherboard on hand to find out if Sandy Bridge is a worthy successor and viable competitor to the last twelve months of progress in our marketplace.

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!

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."
