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. …

Motherboard Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 Review

The second generation of AMD A-Series hybrid processors, announced earlier in October, are already integrated in a number of graphics solutions. The newly appeared products are compatible with Socket FM2 only and cannot be applied for Socket FM1 infrastructure. This implies that a number of motherboards lose their upgrade facilities and can't be updated with a new advanced solution. Still, the market is currently ready to present a few boards destined to operate with the updated AMD A-Series. Gigabyte is one of the pioneers in this respect, introducing its motherboard GA-F2A85X-UP4, developed specifically for Socket FM2.



Integration


Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 is designed in ATX form-factor with 305x244 mm PCB dimensions. AMD A85X chipset is a heart of the motherboard; it secures the compatibility with A-Series (second gen.) APU and Athlon CPUs in the implementation of Socket FM2. The overall TDP level claimed for the model is not more than 100W. The PCB allots four DIMM slots …

The ASRock DeskMini 110 PC Is Based on the Mini-STX Motherboard and Afford the CPU Upgrade

The ASRock manufacturer has voiced, that modest-sized (155 × 155 × 80 mm only) DeskMini 110 PCs may get Intel Core processing units of the seventh generation (the Kaby Lake platform).



The key specification of the product is the presence of the Mini-STX motherboard, which is of decent size (140 × 147 mm), though, affords the CPU upgrade. DeskMini 110 will most likely possess an LGA 1151 socket. The ASRock Co. also alludes to the Core i7-7700K processor, being a 14 nm solution with four compute cores, offering the 4.2–4.5 GHz clockrate. The DDR4-2133/2400 RAM is supported.


Another peculiarity of brand-new ASRock Mini PCs is embodied in the fast Samsung 960 PRO PCIe SSD with the 512 GB capacity. The ultimate claimed data read rate is 3,534 MB/s, and the record speed – 2,130 MB/s.


The DeskMini 110 case holds two 2.5-inch drives, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi adapters, a Gigabit Ethernet network controller, alongside with USB 2.0, USB 3.0, HDMI and DP interface units.
