Gigabyte A75M-D2H and A75-UD4H Motherboard Review
     Fri, May 25 2012 | 8:45A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I have to say that I sort of had certain expectations about the FM1 platform when these boards showed up on my doorstep. I do a lot of heavy content creation and intense gaming, pushing the graphics to the limit of what they offer. I feared that benchmarking this platform was going to be like watching molasses roll up hill in January. I was, however, very surprised with the user experience I had with these FM1 motherboards. While they are aimed at those who have general computing needs, they pack a bit more punch than one might think. Seeing the A-Series architecture instantly shift CPU and GPU resources to where they are needed is impressive to say the least."

Posted by: STAFF
When doing all of our Ivy Bridge launch prep we spent a LOT of time benchmarking and testing a whole collection of boards. You guys have seen our reviews of the Intel and Gigabyte boards. When it came time to write about the four different Asus Z77 boards I realized that most of you are not going to want to read through a lot of information that we would cover over and over on each review. We decided to roundup all four of the boards and cover them together. This way we can get to the point a little quicker, saving you time, as well as giving us a chance to talk more about the differences between the variety of boards that we tested."

MSI debuts Z77A-GD80, the world's first mobo with Thunderbolt

(Industry, CA) At the Consumer Electronics Show in January 2012, world-renowned mainboard manufacturer MSI showcased the Z77A-GD80 mainboard, featuring the world's first mainboard with ThunderboltTM support. The leading technology on display in the Z77A-GD80 resulted in unprecedented interest and coverage by global media, and is now officially released today. The Z77A-GD80 is equipped with the newest Intel Z77 chipset with support for the new generation 22nm processors, and is equipped with the newest ThunderboltTM transfer interface. With ThunderboltTM, external device connectivity problems faced by high-end users are alleviated such as: poor data transfer rates, every device requiring an independent connection port, and transfer speed dropping low when sending and receiving files simultaneously due to lack of bandwidth, etc.

www.pcstats.com

The all new ThunderboltTM transfer technology provides an extremely large bi-direction 10Gbps bandwidth, which allows simultaneous connection of high resolution monitors, storage devices and even a graphics card. 8-channel audio signal is also supported, allowing multiple devices to be connected via a single cable. The Z77A-GD80 mainboard utilizes Military Class III components, which passed through 7 rigorous MIL-STD-810G standard tests and have also been certified by independent third-party laboratories, providing the best quality and stability. It is also equipped with the MSI's proprietary one-second overclocking OC Genie II and UEFI / Windows dual-graphical interface ClickBIOS II, allowing users to easily achieve high system performance with an easy operational experience.

ECS Nonstop Technology: a New Frontier in PC Stability and Performance
     Thu, May 24 2012 | 2:38P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

24 May 2012, Taipei, Taiwan - Nonstop Technology from Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) finally delivers a hassle free computing experience by solving common PC hardware problems before they can even occur. A specially-devised testing regime - far stricter than common industry standards - combined with the highest quality components and shielding, ensures that ECS Nonstop certified motherboards can be relied on for stability and reliability far into the future.

For PC owners suffering crashes, instability and poor performance, ECS Nonstop motherboards can now deliver the stability, reliability and power that other manufacturers only promise. All ECS Black Series Motherboards are Nonstop certified, including these models: X79R-AX, X79R-AX deluxe, A990FXM-A, A990FXM-A Deluxe, A75F-A, H61H2-A2 Deluxe, Z77H2-AX, Z77H2-A2X, and Z77H2-A2X deluxe. Future Black Series Motherboards will also adopt ECS Nonstop Technology.

Nonstop technology comprises four interlocking tests and enhancements that combine together to protect PCs and defeat many of the most common causes of hardware problems and system instability.

The Toughest Stability Testing
Every ECS Nonstop certified motherboard must survive the Super Marathon 3X Stability test, a military level assault course of tests that checks and stresses critical components to ensure that they are up to ECS standards. The Super Marathon Stability Test is aptly named, because each board runs through the testing cycle more than 30,000 times in the course of a strenuous 72-hour workout. This testing regime is devised and guaranteed by more than 30 professional ECS testers.

In addition, every Nonstop certified board must undergo the Sahara Severe Test: a 50°C severe environment test. Running at 125 percent higher than standard high temperature tests, the Sahara Severe Test checks every boards' ability to keep working flawlessly - even when handling supremely demanding computing tasks under the most extreme environmental conditions. 

Only those boards which can pass the Super Marathon Stability test and the 50°C Severe Environment Test while still delivering the flawless, glitch-free high performance that ECS expects are ultimately awarded Nonstop Certification and allowed to reach ECS customers.

Ultimate Hardware Protection
As well as standard ECS performance features, ECS Nonstop boards also include 100 percent solid Apache Long-life capacitors, to protect users from capacitor leakage and failure problems. This technology was developed by a team of more than 40 hardware experts.

In some competing products from other manufacturers, capacitors made with older, less reliable technology can leak, swell or even burst, causing hard-to-pin-down stability and performance issues, or even total failure. Apache Long-life Capacitors have a lifetime six times longer than traditional capacitors, putting all these problems firmly in the past.

Apache Long-life Capacitors have a lifetime six times longer than traditional capacitors, putting all these problems firmly in the past.

The final, critical component of ECS Nonstop technology is Thor Ultra Protection comprehensive electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection. The 100 percent ESD protection on Nonstop motherboards is achieved with special circuitry, consisting of dozens of extra components, that protects expensive and delicate chips, like the CPU, DRAM and more, from static build up that can damage or destroy them without warning. Thor Ultra Protection follows the toughest NASA guidelines for preventing ESD damage.

Perhaps one of the most daunting tasks after making the decision that you do not wish to purchase an off-the-shelf computer is attempting to figure out which components go in the machine. There are fun aspects like the graphics card and processor and then there are the not-so-fun aspects like the motherboard (at least in my opinion). Why do I think it is a whole lot of not fun? There are so many out there to choose from with all sorts of features. When shopping you will likely come across the ASUS board that I am going to review today. Arguably it is one of the better all-around boards out there with features like good integrated graphics and killer sound. But to a gamer that generally does not mean squat.
