The board features the black and white branding common to the AORUS product line, with the rear panel cover and chipset featuring the brand logos.

"US-based server vendor Supermicro has entered the brand gaming motherboard market with its new Supero brand and released a series of products recently. The company has been pushing high-end motherboards initially and will turn to focus on releasing mid-range models and desktops later. Since the gaming market is expected to grow by a CAGR of around 40% from US$463 million in 2016 to US$1.07 billion in 2019, Supermicro expects the market to have strong potential and has been pushing server-grade gaming motherboards, looking to snatch a share of the market.

For North America, Supermicro already has stable sales and is mainly pushing US$100-range high-end models. Currently, the company is aggressively expanding its presence in Asia Pacific and will enter Europe by the second half of 2017.

Among Asia Pacific markets, South Korea has the strongest monthly motherboard sales of 70,000 units, while Japan, Taiwan and India each has about 15,000 units. Thailand and Vietnam each has about 10,000 units and China 40,000-50,000 units. Supermicro's current targets are South Korea, Japan, Taiwan and Southeast Asia and will enter China at a later time."

ECS H110S-2P Mini-STX form factor
     Tue, Dec 27 2016 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

Professional motherboard manufacturer, Elitegroup, worked together with Intel® to research and develop the new product, ECS H110S-2P. Its Mini-STX form factor extends high performance and flexibility to something as small as a hand. The New LIVA Pro mini PC is based on the H110S-2P providing our users best performance and trim choice.

Mini-STX (147mm × 140mm) was defined by Intel® and ECS as the next generation form factor. It’s smaller than mini-ITX (147mm × 140mm) and reduce the layout space of the PCB by 29%. However, ECS H110S-2P and LIVA Pro still keep various design features and components on such a narrow and small space. You can choose any standard LGA115x CPU cooler to make the platform as cool as possible. It supports 6th LGA1151 Processors without special regulations products, as well. Just choose a suitable chassis to be a builder of a One-Liter computer with our mini-STX motherboard design.

ECS H110S-2P and LIVA Pro holds the philosophy of “Less is more” to make things easier. Both new products support Intel® LGA1151 TDP 65W CPU, flexibly and match with Intel® H110 chipset. Most important of all, the I/O is composed of SATA 6Gbps , USB 3.0 Type-C , GbE LAN , 802.11AC / BT 4.0 , Intel Dual-channel technology and RS232 Port. Dual display outputs are offered, in order to level up efficiency and productivity.

Health Winston, Director, Intel Desktop chipset &Customer marketing even said that

“The Mini Socket Technology Extended (Mini-STX) platform brings the performance and the configuration flexibility of traditional tower desktops to mini PCs. The LIVA Pro from ECS is a great example of cooperation between Intel and ECS to drive innovative solutions on Desktop.”

ECS H110S-2P and LIVA Pro are better than ATX/M-ATX PC with lower power consumption and light volume case. Also, ECS H110S-2P and LIVA Pro are better than Intel NUC SoC PC with various I/O, flexible CPU choice and strong performance. So, perfect satisfaction is guaranteed for your business/education/IPC solution needs when using the ECS H110S-2P and LIVA Pro.

Posted by: STAFF
Today we are going to take a look at Gigabyte’s Z170X-Designare motherboard, one of the company's more recent Socket 1151-based boards for Intel's 6th Generation Skylake-based processors.

Yet for the sub-$250 price tag, this motherboard is loaded up with a strong array of cutting edge technologies...
