Intel Z77 Motherboard Round-up: Asrock, ECS, Gigabyte & Intel
     Mon, Apr 30 2012 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although Intel's die shrink of Sandy Bridge isn't due until next week (Monday, rumors say), the company has long shipped Ivy Bridge's accompanying chipsets. It might seem odd to jump the gun on "next-gen" motherboards, but 7-series platforms are backwards compatible with Sandy Bridge processors, so users have actually been able to buy a Z77 motherboard and use it for a few weeks without Ivy Bridge. After surveying Panther Point's spec sheet, we're itching to get a little more hands-on. Fortunately, we have four new Z77 motherboards in the shop and begging for attention, including the Asrock Z77 Extreme6, ECS Z77H2-AX, Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H-WB and Intel DZ77GA-70K.

ROG Motherboards are highly regarded in the enthusiast world due in part to the loyalty of their fans, included features and availability since it doesn't do much good to have a great motherboard if you can't acquire one. These things aside, we like them because each board is designed and tuned for the hardware it intends to support.

BIOSTAR TA970XE Motherboard
     Wed, Apr 25 2012 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

BIOSTAR Group, the world renowned manufacturer of motherboards, graphics cards, industrial computing systems and peripherals, announces the new generation of TA970XE series motherboards for AMD AM3+ CPUs. Their capabilities are very close to the top TA990FXE and offer overclockers and gamers considerable power and flexible settings for a reasonable price.

The TA970XE board sports the ATX form-factor (305 x 225 mm) on a powerful AMD 970 chipset with the SB950 Southbridge. It provides stable and high performance with any Socket AM3+ CPUs of the Phenom II X6, Phenom II X4, Phenom II X3, Phenom II X2, Athlon II X4, Athlon II X3, Athlon II X2 and Sempron Series including the most powerful 6-core and 8-core AMD FX, AMD Phenom II and AMD Athlon II CPUs with the TDP up to 140W. The TA970XE board features the latest UEFI BIOS which, in particular, directly supports HDDs over 2TB.
The TA970XE board has four DDR3 DIMMs and supports up to 32GB dual-channel DDR3 800/1066/1333/1600/1866 MHz and experimental overclocking memory modules clocked up to 2000MHz. Two PCI-E x16 2.0 slots deliver full-featured support for the most powerful configurations of discrete cards in the ATI CrossFire X mode.

The TA970XE easily supports up to five latest speedy storage devices of the SATA3 6Gbit/s interface and supports SATA RAID 0,1,5,10 arrays. Besides, the board has one eSATA, two USB 3.0 (ASMedia ASM1042 chip), eight USB 2.0, one FireWire IEEE 1394a (VIA VT6315N chip) ports, a 10/100/1000Mbit/s LAN controller (Realtek RTL8111E chip) and 8-channel HD audio codec (VIA VT1828S chip). Additional peripherals can be connected to two PCI and two PCI-E x1 2.0 slots.

The TA970XE board reflects usage of the most up to date production lines with the very strict quality control. The board uses a 5-phase voltage regulation and high-quality solid capacitors.
The board features all BIOSTAR proprietary technologies including the BIOSTAR G.P.U (Green Power Utility) for power optimization at a low load, the exclusive overclocking Rapid Switch utility for quick restart, the Rapid Debug for hardware debugging with a LED light, the BIOS Flasher and the BIOS RELIFE for BIOS update or recovery from a USB drive and the BIO-Remote 2 for remote control of home media system components control from Android or Apple mobile devices. Overclockers will be pleased to see the T-overclocker utilities for the Windows which will let them do fine system tuning.

The newcomer is the unique Clean Tone 2 technology developed by the engineers from BIOSTAR which helps you deliver the finest sound with minimal distortions in the high-frequency range. As there are independent capacitors for each line the Clean-Tone 2 allows reaching an excellent NSR around 98dB which ideally fits a modern system based on the Windows 7 OS.

Dual UEFI with Exclusive 3D BIOS

GIGABYTE 7 series motherboards also feature our revolutionary 3D BIOS that is based on the exclusive GIGABYTE UEFI DualBIOS™ technology.

Exclusive All Digital Engine

Our new All Digital power design for GIGABYTE 7 series motherboards allows users to have greater control over the power delivered to their 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processors on the LGA 1155 socket. Using entirely digital controllers for the CPU, processor graphics, VTT and system memory, users can enjoy more precise power delivery to the PC’s energy sensitive components than previously possible.
 
GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ 4 – Insist on an Ultra Durable Motherboard

GIGABYTE 7 series motherboards feature the latest GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ 4 technology, embracing a range of exclusive technologies that guarantee DIY PC builders the absolute best protection for their PC.

card that offers support for the latest Bluetooth 4.0 (Smart Ready) and dual band 300Mbps Wi-Fi connectivity*. With the growing availability of affordable or free remote mobile to PC software, such as Splashtop and Dropbox, GIGABYTE believes that now is the time to explore and enjoy the home cloud: a personal cloud within the secure environment of a home network where the performance and functionality of desktop PCs can be utilized and controlled by portable cloud devices.

GIGABYTE EZ Setup

GIGABYTE 7 series motherboards feature an exclusive EZ Setup

utility that allows users to more easily implement the latest Intel® responsiveness technologies. Within a simple user interface, you can install and configure Intel® Smart Response, Intel® Rapid Start, and Intel® Smart Connect.
