A Pair of New A88X-Based Motherboards for Socket FM2(+) from ASRock

According to the ASRock official website, the company has just unveiled the specifications of its two new motherboards, based on AMD A88X chipset. Codenamed FM2A88M Extreme4+ and FM2A88X Extreme6+, this couple has joined A-Style Series lineup and is estimated for APUs from AMD that support Socket FM2/FM2+ and have not more than 100 W TDP level. The realization of ASRock XFast 555 concept, which embraces XFast RAM/USB/LAN options, is the feature that unites both new-comers. Nevertheless, there are a lot of distinguishing features that make each model so peculiar.

ASRock FM2A88M Extreme4+ boasts the following specifications:

— form-factor: micro-ATX;

— memory: 4 DIMM slots, support for DDR3 modules running at 1066-2600+ (O.C) MHz, two-channel operational mode, maximal capacity – 64 GB;

— power supply system: digital controller, 4+2-phase power scheme;

— expansion facilities: one PCI slot, one PCIe 2.0 x1, one PCIe 2.0 x16, one PCIe 3.0 x16;

— storage: …

Asus Announces ROG Poseidon GTX 780 Adapter with DirectCU H2O

Asus has officially introduced a new add-on to the GTX 780 graphics cards series – the ROG Poseidon GTX 780 (codename: Poseidon-GTX780-P-3GD5). The new-comer is initially differentiated by the incorporation of a hybrid DirectCU H2O cooling system, as well as of prime-quality components. The heart of the model is Nvidia GK110 GPU with 2304 CUDA cores. It operates at 1006 MHz. the GPU is accompanied by 3 GB of GDDR5 memory (384-bit bus), running at 1502 MHz (6008 MHz – efficient).

Asus ROG Poseidon GTX 780 employs a qualitative printed circuit board that boasts 10-phase Digi+ VRM digital power subsystem. Reliability of operation is ascribed to Black metallic solid-state capacitors, ferrite chokes with Super Alloy Power support, and classy transistors. They take care of the card’s lifespan, which, according to some reports, is five times longer than rival models feature.

To continue, hybrid DirectCU H2O combines a traditional air cooler along with liquid cooling. The …

Foxconn Introduces a Set of Motherboards for Intel Haswell Processors

Foxconn announces the release of several new motherboards, based on Intel H87 and B85 chipsets. The set consists of four models – B85MX, B85MX-D, H87MX, H87MX-D – compatible with the fourth generation Intel Core processors for Socket LGA 1150. The quad is intended for the assembling of small-sized mATX PCs, such as multifunctional office engines or powerful home multimedia centers.

The most outstanding peculiarities pertained to the new motherboards from Foxconn are seen in the support of PCI Express 3.0 bus with the bandwidth of 10 Gb/sec. The interface of the new generation allows integrating the most efficient graphics cards (and other peripherals) by means of dedicated PCIe sockets. Connectivity is supported due to dedicated SATA III ports and USB 3.0 ports.

The boards might accommodate up to 32 GB of DDR3 memory with clock frequencies up to 1600 MHz. The availability of an advanced Realtek audio controller ensures the production of a pure 5.1-channel sounding. …
