Oh boy, it's really looking like Computex won't be much fun when it comes to motherboards this year, as by now at least half of all the new boards must've leaked. Today yet another model has turned up online and this time around it's Gigabyte's GA-A75-UD4H which sports AMD's FM1 socket for its Fusion processors.
ASUS held a Power User Gathering for enthusiasts last Saturday, 21 May. Motherboard specialist Jack Cheng flew all the way from Taiwan to provide first-hand answers to enthusiasts' queries. Three lucky participants even got to walk away with a ASUS P8Z68-V PRO motherboard each! Pictures after the jump.
Mr Blurrycam has struck once again, although it's not as bad as sometimes and it gives us a pretty good overview of Asus' upcoming Crosshair V Formula motherboard based on the AMD 990FX chipset, especially in combination with the specifications that leaked earlier. It confirms the four x16 PCI Express slots, but unlike the Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7,
At this rate we won't have many AM3+ motherboards left to cover come Computex, as evidently close to every single board has already leaked ahead of the show. Today it's ECS' A990FXM-A that's turned up on a Thai forum and we're looking at a pretty high-end board, especially for ECS.
Judging by the already large amount of high-end AMD 900-series chipset motherboards that have made an appearance on the internet, it's pretty clear that we're very close to the launch and that AMD must've managed to impress the motherboard makers with its upcoming CPUs. Gigabyte's GA-990FXA-UD7 is one of the more impressive boards we've seen
So far ECS is the only motherboard manufacturer to officially reveal some of its upcoming products for Computex, while pretty much everything else has been leaks. However, now ASRock has launched its Computex portal and we're looking at a pretty interesting selection of new products being showcased.
If the increase of leaks of upcoming motherboards is an indicator of something, then it would be that we’re very close to Computex and with just over a week to go, MSI’s upcoming 990FXA-GD80 has made an appearance alongside a pretty comprehensive spec sheet. MSI showed off a board called the Big Bang Conqueror 990FX
Z68 has been stealing all the limelight lately. But for those who want a piece of the Sandy Bridge action for cheap, there exists a lesser known chipset by the name of H61. We pair up the ECS H61H2-M with a Core-i3 2100 to find out if this is a viable budget alternative to H67/P67.
About two weeks ago the specifications of Asus' upcoming 900-series AM3+ boards leaked and today the first pictures of the new TUF Sabertooth 990FX appeared on the web courtesy of a Chinese website. The board design is a bit of a flash back to Asus' first TUF board, the TUF Sabertooth i55 and the board has very
Jetway isn't exactly a huge player in the consumer motherboard market these days, although the company seems to be doing reasonably well in mainland China and now a picture of its upcoming AMD 990X motherboard has leaked on a Chinese website. It's not clear if this is a model limited to the Chinese market, or
Although ECS didn't provide a picture with its announcement earlier today pertaining to its AMD socket FM1 boards, a picture of the A75F-A motherboard has now turned out via a German website. This is the first picture of a production AMD FM1 motherboard to appear and we can't say that we're entirely sold on ECS' design
If for some reason you don't quite like AMD and its Fusion APU, how about this dual-core hyper-threaded Intel Atom solution with NVIDIA ION graphics onboard? We pit the ASUS AT5IONT-I against the E35M1-I DELUXE for some Mini-ITX action!
Although no pictures of a retail ready AMD socket FM1 has leaked as yet, we now have the first specifications of no less than three boards from ECS. The company will be displaying at least one ATX and two mATX at Computex which kicks off in two weeks' time and we have a feeling that
When the overclocking capabilities of a P67 chipset put together with the graphics awesomeness of the H61/H67 chipset, the Z68 platform is borned. Today, we test out the new Z68 platform from Intel specifically on the ASUS P8Z68-V Pro motherboard to see if it has got what it takes to be called the best of
Although the Z68 chipset launch has already happened, it turns out that several manufacturers only launched some of their boards while others will be trickling out over the next few weeks and months. We've been doing some digging and have managed to find out a few models names, details and even pricing of some of
In case you haven't been paying attention to what's going on in the motherboard market for the past week or so, today is the official launch of Intel's Z68 chipset (note. This entirely depends on what time zone you live in). We've already covered many of the motherboards announced today, but Intel does of course
Asus unveiled a tiny picture of its Maximus IV Gene-Z in its Z68 motherboard announcement, but it didn't really give away a lot of details. However, VR-Zone can now offer some more detailed pictures of the board, albeit we have as yet not managed to get hold of a decent picture of the entire board. On
Here's a surprise, Gigabyte is going to have more Z68 motherboards and we'll be seeing boards with an mSATA connector on them which will accept mSATA SSDs. Talk about spoiling it on the day of the launch of the much anticipated Z68 motherboards. Well, ok, it's not that big of a deal, but it's a
We take a look at the latest AMD Brazos motherboard from ECS. Featuring USB 3.0, WiFi and Bluetooth, how well does the ECS HDC-I compare with the other E-350 motherboards reviewed so far?
