X99 Gaming G1 is GIGABYTE's flagship product
     Tue, Dec 30 2014 | 3:18A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The GIGABYTE X99 Gaming G1 WIFI motherboard is a well designed product, combining the Gaming series aesthetics with a wide assortment of integrated features. GIGABYTE tried to keep everything in-line with the board's Gaming series color scheme, adding red LEDs to the chipset heat sink as well as to the audio PCB separator line. Their was a lot of work put into the layout of the integrated components, most obvious with the CMOS battery location and design of the stacked mPCIe and M.2 slots. The heat pipe connecting all on-board heat sinks was a masterful stroke, alleviating overheating concerns when using the board with a CPU cooler without active airflow. Performance-wise, the board holds its own at stock speeds with seemingly untapped overclocking potential as well."

     Tue, Dec 30 2014 | 2:18A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Due to Intel releasing new chipsets often a lot of people might think that the motherboard market has a big focus on Intel boards. As I have seen in the past on our forums, our Facebook, and even at our events there is still a large AMD following that is hungry for the latest and greatest to support their preferred vender as well. Well when looking to lock in a board for future AM3+ testing I ended up with the Asus Crosshair V Formula in my hands. Today I’m going to dig into it and see what makes it Asus’s flagship AMD board.

19 Intel Z97 chipset motherboard review: testing the new generation
     Sun, Dec 28 2014 | 10:18P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is virtually no difference in possibilities between the existing Z87 chipset and the new Z97 chipset. When purely looking at specifications we can conclude that this new generation of boards is the most boring ever. that conclusing is a bit harsh though as manufacturers have used this new chipset to introduce boards with a lot of new features. All the Z97 boards we have tested are all showing improvements on their Z87 predecessors. The most important news are the introductions of PCI Express storage. Almost all new boards feature an M.2 slot and more boards have a SATA Express slot. It is difficult to predict which of the new standards will be most popular when PCI-Express SSDs are more common. Only because of this the boards that sport all three modes are favorable as far as we are concerned.

MSI A88X-G45 Gaming Motherboard Review
     Sun, Dec 28 2014 | 5:18A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MSI A88X-G45 Gaming is a handsome AMD A88X motherboard that sports a long list of features including triple graphics slots. That explains the ‘Gaming’ part of the name and as you would expect the A88X chipset means this MSI board supports the latest FM2+ range of Kaveri APU.

MSI X99S Gaming 9 AC Motherboard Review
     Sat, Dec 27 2014 | 4:05P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MSI X99S Gaming 9 AC motherboard is another crowning achievement for MSI, combining innovations from their previous board lines with the raw power embodied in the Intel X99 chipset. I quickly became enamored with the board after its initial unboxing, its sleek black and red highlighted design appealing to my inner computer enthusiast. Aesthetically, MSI put a lot of thought in to the implementation an layout of this board. The armor overlay sitting on top of the audio components and I/O cover give the board a nice and uniform appearance. Once powered, the board becomes even slicker looking with its glowing Dragon logo embedded in the chipset heat sink and red glowing audio PCB separator and chipset. The red glow gives the board an under-lit appearance along the back edge as well, adding too its allure."

ASUS Z97-WS motherboard
     Thu, Dec 25 2014 | 6:18P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS Z97-WS motherboard is the latest release for the workstation board line with several evolutionary changes over its predecessor to take advantage of the Intel Z97 chipset features. ASUS changed little as far as the layout goes from the Z87 revision of the board, updating the board aesthetics with a richer gold and black coloration which is carried over into the board's capacitors and MOSFETs as well. The Z97-WS also features both SATA-Express and M.2 ports as well as optimizations to its CPU power circuitry to enhance the CPU 's performance potential and optimize power utilization. ASUS priced the Z97-WS competitively with a $289.00 MSRP in comparison to boards from other manufacturers with a similar feature set.
