ASRock Unleashes Hyper OC Series of Overclocking-Oriented Mainboards

ASRock is thought to be an innovator in the development of hardware know-hows. The Computex 2016 came as no exclusion: the company introduced a lineup of overclocked mainboards which joined Hyper OC series. Initially, the lineup consisted of three models – H170 Pro4/Hyper, B150M Pro4/Hyper & H110M-DS/Hyper; further on, it will be replenished by three other models – Fatal1ty H170 Performance/Hyper, Fatal1ty B150 Gaming K4/Hyper & B150A-X1/Hyper.

As seen from the codenames, the motherboards are based on Intel B150, H170 and H110 chipsets which employ ASRock Hyper BCLK Engine controller; it overclocks Intel Skylake CPUs by means of BCLK alteration, without dislocating other components. The new-comers support the installation of superfast DDR4 RAM, graphics cards with PCI-e 3.0 x16 interfaces as well as voluminous drives (including Ultra M.2).

Rumours about postponement of procuring of desktop processors AMD Trinity are confirmed

Postponement of desktop processors Trinity (Socket FM2) release for October is becoming more possible. Not long ago such rumours were confirmed by authoritative Taiwan source. Retail sales of AMD A10-5800K and the other APU of new series will start only in three months, either simultaneously or nearly simultaneously with the release of high-end 8-core processors FX-83xx/Piledriver.

Experts say that in preparing procedure of desktop models Trinity, which must operate at frequencies up to 3.8 GHz (4.2 GHz Turbo), AMD engineers faced with a small amount of chip slots. In this regard, there will be changes in the production process and the design of crystals Vishera. In addition to this, warehouses of Advanced Micro Devices and its partners are filled with surplus APU Llano, which are needed to be implemented in the coming months in any case.

The delay of Trinity will affect the timing removal of the old processors AM3 from the sale. These processors are still up 30% of the …

ASRock to Officially Introduce Z87 Extreme 4/Z87 Pro 3 Motherboards in Early June

ASRock is going to officially introduce its two budgetary motherboards (compatible with Intel Haswell processors) in early June. Codenamed ASRock Z87 Extreme 4 and ASRock Z87 Pro 3, these products will cost around $170 and $100 correspondingly. Such attractive price makes them one of the most affordable solutions involving high-efficient CPUs of the next generation.

The more costly motherboard, Z87 Extreme 4, is known to feature only high-quality layout components, including PCB with dual copper layers, chokes with ferrite hub, and durable solid-state capacitors. This model supports DDR3 memory modules of up to 2600 MHz frequency and up to 32 GB capacity. Expansion slots consist of two PCI connectors, two PCI Express 3.0 x1 connectors, and three PCI Express 3.0 x16 connectors.

The connection of internal drives becomes possible due to the availability of eight SATA III sockets. Audio subsystem is realized with the help of 8.1-channel Creative Sound Blaster codec. External …
