MSI B75IA-E33 - cost-effective Mini-ITX board for processors Ivy Bridge

In early August, it was mentioned about the fact that MSI developer of motherboards is preparing to release three new products in the form factor Mini-ITX on chipsets A85, B75, and Z77. As it turned out, the first low-cost board will be MSI B75IA-E33 — it will start selling in Europe at the end of this week at prices ranging from € 95.



The functionality of this product is limited with respect to the other two models; however, a set of components in B75IA-E33 is very decent. LGA1155 processor socket is energized by three phases (provides additional power to the ATX12V 4-pin), hidden under a small cooler chipset Intel B75. Available one connector PCI Express 3.0 x16, two slots for memory modules DDR3-1066/1333/1600 total up to 16 GB, SATA port 6Gb / s and SATA 3 Gbit / s (3 units) to connect storage devices.


A pair of USB 3.0 on the rear panel are completed with a 19-pin connector on the PCB, through which on the front panel I / O can be taken two SuperSpeed USB. The …

Gigabyte Showcases New GB-BSi7 Mini-PCs

Gigabyte keeps on refilling its inventory of Intel Skylake-based solutions with a couple of new mini-PCs: Brix GB-BSi7T-6500 & Brix GB-BSi7HT-6500. The greenhorns are designed on a two-core Intel Core i7-6500U CPU that operates at 2.5/3.1 GHz frequency. The processor is accompanied by Intel HD graphics as well as DDR4-2133 MHz RAM (maximum capacity – 32 GB).



The fundamental difference between the two models lies in the storage layout. The GB-BSi7T-6500 features only M.2 slot for the installation of compatible drives, whereas the GB-BSi7HT-6500 adds one SATA 6 Gb/sec interface for 2.5-inch drive. All other specifications are analogous for the mini-PCs.


Therefore, the new-comers feature a single PCI Express M.2 expansion slot (occupied by Wi-Fi + Bluetooth module), Realtek ALC255 audio controller, Intel I219V gigabit network controller, Intel Dual-Band wireless-AC 3165, and an integrated 90-watt power supply unit. Internal layout allows for the installation of a tiny …

Meet New Transcend HSD740 SSDs for Universal Usage

Transcend has pushed along its new solid-state drive of half-slim form-factor — HSD740. The drive is based on a high-quality NAND flash-memory with MLC architecture and is intended at the employment in a wide spectrum of platforms: small-sized portative devices, laptops, enterprise PCs, as well as in gaming consoles. This model features only 54x39x4 mm dimensions and will come in two capacity variations (32 GB and 64 GB).



Transcend HSD740 employs an up-dated SATA 6 Gb/sec interface to provide for the utmost data transfer speeds. The maximal speed index on sequential Read operations equals to 510 Mb/sec, while on sequential Write operations this index does not trespass 185 Mb/sec.


Support of SATA Device Sleep (further on DevSleep) mode deserves special praise. This mode ensures that this solid-state drive consumed minimum power on diverse operational conditions. On its activation, SATA interface gets totally disabled on stand-by time; at the same time, it is able to …
