Today we take a look at one of ASRock's entry level X79 boards, the X79 Extreme4. Not only is this board reasonably priced, but also carries many of the features of more expensive boards. Follow us as we take a look at the Extreme4 and its many extremities.
We know many of you have been waiting for quite some time to get your hands on one of the very soon to launch – and already available in some countries – Intel 7-series chipset based motherboards. As such we thought it would be helpful to give a bit of an overview as to the
With less than a week to go until the official launch of Intel's new 7-series chipset, the first pictures of Sapphires upcoming Pure Platinum Z77 motherboard has appeared and one thing is certain, it's not the same board as the one that was touted as the Pure Black Z77 back at CES in January. The
Last week we posted some detailed pictures of Intel's upcoming Z77 motherboards and today we bring you the H77 models. This time around we have one ATX board, one mATX board and one mini ITX board for your viewing pleasure.
When it comes to official pricing, Intel isn't a very imaginative company, for better or worse. Pricing details of the upcoming 7-series chipsets have been revealed and they mostly look the same as for the current 6-series of chipsets.
With just over a week until the official launch of the Z77, H77 and B75 chipsets, Intel has posted details of its upcoming motherboards on its website. Generally Intel motherboards aren't all that much to get excited about, but the new Skulltrail board, known and the DZ77GA-70K looks better than what we've been used to
ASRock, originally spun off from ASUSTeK almost a decade ago, has risen from its humble beginnings to become the 3rd largest motherboard vendor behind ASUS and GIGABYTE in terms of volume shipments. Their growth has been attributed to an aggressive pricing strategy coupled with feature-filled offerings to give them the competitive edge. With the recent
If you're a regular VR-Zone reader you might remember our massive USB 3.0 host controller test that we did back in August last year. As the first of Intel's new 7-series motherboards are starting to appear, we thought we'd do a quick test of Intel's native USB 3.0 host controller and compare how it stacks up to
Gold is unquestionably one of the most sought-after commodities on this planet and a universal symbol of power and prestige. For their upcoming Z77 (Ivy Bridge) flagship, ECS literally used their midas touch to create a gold themed motherboard. We lay our coveteous eyes on it…
Having chatted with Sapphire back at CeBIT a couple of weeks ago, we knew the company is planning on taking a slightly different direction for its future motherboard products and the Pure Platinum A55V looks like it's a step in that direction. What we're looking at is a fairly basic motherboard for AMD's APUs, without
CeBIT might be past us for this time, but we still have a few titbits left from the show that we want to share. First up is ECS' H61H2-TI mini-ITX motherboard which might not sound all that exciting at first, until you realise that it has a unique feature in the shape of HDMI input.
We were fortunate enough to get a preview of Gigabyte's high-end 7-series chipset motherboards ahead of CeBIT, but it turned out that the company had plenty more on offer at CeBIT. As such, here's a fairly quick run-down of the new models on display at the show, as there are far too many products for
We've seen a fair few motherboards during CeBIT, but none of them were as insane as ASRock's new X79 Extreme11, as the company appears to have gone out of its way to create the most feature packed motherboard you could imagine and then some.
The $35 Raspberry Pi computer has been delayed due to a mistake in the manufacturing process which saw the wrong networking jack soldered onto the circuit board.
A newly leaked slide on Intel's Ivy Bridge launch schedule has hit the web which puts any previous uncertainty to rest in terms of when exactly the first wave of chips will hit retail.
Back at CES the first pictures of MSI's Z77A-GD80 motherboard made an appearance, a board that was said to feature Thunderbolt connectivity, but back then MSI hadn't actually implemented it. Fast forward three months and the company is now showing off the final board with the actual hardware fitted to the board.
Traditionally Gigabyte's consumer motherboard division has steered clear of the entry-level workstation market, so we were quite surprised to see its GA-X79S-UD5 board on display at CeBIT, although we'd been told that the company was working on such a product. The S in the model name apparently stands for server, although this is much more
Details are out on yet another Z77 based board coming to market; the Z77H2-A3 from ECS which caters to the more budget focused crowd. A couple "Black Extreme" series boards in the Z77H2-AX and Z77H2-A2X were spotted from the vendor at CeBIT yesterday, but the Z77H2-A3 is trimmed down in features and price to nestle
With CeBIT getting underway in Germany, manufacturers are taking the wraps off of their Z77 motherboards. MSI are preparing to release their boards, one of which is the Z77A-GD65 which we are going to preview today.
Last November, NVIDIA announced CUDA on ARM during the unveiling of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center, which is powered by combination of ARM based Tegra 3 SOC and the CUDA GPUs (prelude of Project Denver). Today, the company launched a developer kit based on this combination named CARMA.
