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 …

Zotac to Release a Small-Sized but Efficient Graphics Card GTX 650 Ti

Despite the variety of high-end graphics solutions in the market, not all customers, especially gamers, have possibilities of buying rather costly items in order to assemble a powerful gaming system. In this light, Zotac decided to comply with its customers’ budget by introducing a small-sized but efficient model – GeForce GTX 650 Ti (codename: ZT-61102-10H). Unlike the reference adapter with 1 GB memory, this solution stipulates the incorporation of 2 GB memory. This brings the new-comer to the higher level in graphics segment.

Graphics card Zotac GeForce GTX 650 Ti is based on Nvidia GK106 GPU, developed under 28 nm technological process. It features 769 CUDA cores and runs at factory-overclocked frequencies: the nominal frequency has been increased from 928 MHz to 941 MHz. The GPU is accompanied by GDDR5 memory modules that feature 128-bit interface. Memory runs at 1350 MHz in nominal mode but is able to enhance its potential to the effective 5400 MHz frequency.

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. …
