Just over two months since the launch of desktop Haswell, we run the rule over a pair of value-oriented Intel Z87 motherboards from ASRock and MSI competing in the same price bracket.
Last weekend, local distributor Avertek and VRMedia organized a private dinner event to showcase ASRock’s upcoming range of Intel 8-series motherboards.
Small form factor systems are dominating the headlines at this year’s Computex. To compete against the competition’s Maximus VI Gene and G1.Sniper M5, ASRock created its own contender for the mATX crown – the Z87M OC Formula.
4K video editors and data moguls can now rejoice! Thanks to two onboard LSI SAS chipsets, the upcoming ASRock Z87 Extreme 11 motherboard natively supports up to an unprecedented 22 SAS/SATA devices attached to the system, which should make quite the storage powerhouse.
Conformal coating on the PCB, a popular technique used by sub-zero overclockers for electrical insulation, is now a standard feature on ASRock’s line of Intel Z87 OC motherboards designed by their in-house expert, Nick Shih.
Today we take a look at the Z77 OC Formula, ASRock's first attempt at an extreme overclocking motherboard. We will go over every aspect from their new digital power delivery to the overclocking, no holds barred. This board is targeted towards extreme overclockers and has a lot of innovation, so follow us as we put
ASRock's latest innovation is a web-based BIOS update feature within the UEFI Setup program. Say goodbye to USB flash drives and command-line based BIOS flashing.
There were a plethora of interesting devices on show during the Intel Thunderbolt media event just now, which was held at the Taipei's premier shopping mall Bellavita. We spotted some never seen before and upcoming ASRock/Gigabyte motherboards with new Cactus Ridge 4C controller, MSI's external PCIe graphics that was shown during CES and debuting products from the
Intel's Q77 chipset isn't expected to launch for another week and a half or so, but that hasn't stopped ASRock from launching its first product based on the chipset, the Q77M vPro motherboard. As the name inclines, this is a motherboard for business users and as such it comes with Intel's Small Business Advantage in
The first of the super-premium Z77 motherboards has arrived, ASRock's Z77 Extreme9 and it comes with a price to match. As loaded with features as this motherboard is, it looks like ASRock missed out on one must have feature for this segment – or at least so it appears – namely Thunderbolt.
We're not unfamiliar with high-end motherboards by any means, but ASRock's Fatal1ty X79 Champion is only likely to be overshadowed by ASRock's own X79 Extreme11 and that is if ASRock actually decides to launch that beast of a board. That said, features don't come cheap and you'll have to pony up the cost of about
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
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
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.
Come Cebit next week we'll get the first sneak peeks of what should be the final motherboard designs based on Intel's upcoming 7-series chipsets for Ivy Bridge, but details of ASRock's upcoming motherboards have made their ways online via a range of different sources, including pictures and specs of some of the models we can
Intel's Sandy Bridge-E processors are still in fairly short supply, especially the Core i7-3930K, but that hasn't stopped ASRock from launching its eighth X79 motherboard, the Fatal1ty X79 Professional. The new model is as with ASRock's previous Fatal1ty boards targeting gamers, but it's by far not the most feature rich board on offer by ASRock.
Over the past couple of weeks, we've noticed that ASRock and Creative started to go more and more "hand in hand" with each other. Today, ASRock announced a "Blaster" sound card.
Industrial PC motherboards are generally not that interesting, but at least a couple of ASRock's new models could be quite suitable for HTPC usage. The company has quietly added three IPC motherboards to its range of otherwise consumer focused products and for a first attempt, the company has done a pretty good job.
On Wednesday, Taiwanese tech community site XFastest ran a public event where it tested five similarly-priced mid-range socket LGA2011 motherboards for CPU VRM performance and stability. This comes at a particularly-important time for Gigabyte, when it's faced with CPU VRM problems that it's dealing with. The results are in.
