ASRock Introduces Affordable H110M-DS/Hyper Mainboard

ASRock enters the market with another budget-oriented micro-ATX mainboard – the H110M-DS/Hyper (the recommended price makes up $60). The greenhorn is designed on Intel H110 chipset as well as ASRock Hyper BCLK Engine. The latter realizes the overclocking of Intel Skylake CPUs (for Socket LGA1151) by means of BCLK alteration; therewith, all other key nodes operate off-the-shelf.

ASRock H100M-DS/Hyper employs 4+1-phase power subsystem. The PCB accommodates 2x DIMM slots for DDR4-2133 MHz RAM with the maximal volume of 32 GB. Storage subsystem is represented by four SATA III ports, whereas expansion facilities include one PCIe 3.0 x16 and one PCIe 2.0 x1 ports.

Audio subsystem is governed by Realtek ALC887 controller and three 3.5-mm sockets. In its turn, network facilities are backed by Realtek RTL8111GR controller. Connectivity options embrace one RJ-45 port, one DVI video port, two PS/2 ports, and four USB ports for peripherals (both v 2.0 and v 3.0).

Intel Broadwell CPUs will Get BGA Casing

The Internet community is energetically discussing unofficial info concerning the future Intel's Broadwell processors. According to the yet unacknowledged data, Intel will branch off from currently traditional LGA casings in favor to a more advanced BGA solution. At present all CPUs designed by Intel specifically for desktop platforms feature LGA (Land Grid Array) casings which allow the users to upgrade their systems without any hassle. On LGA implementation, the chip is housed within a socket and contacts with the motherboard. As a result, the user might change one chip to the other only with similar set of contacts.

The launch of Intel Broadwell processors, which is planned for 2014, might dramatically change the situation for customers. Most probably Intel will refuse from LGA casings and accommodate all new CPUs in BGA ones, marking the change of Haswell generation to the future Broadwell generation developed under 14 nm technological process. BGA (Ball Grid Array) …

‘Extraordinary’ Design of Flash Drive Kingmax UI-05

The market of flash drives is full of offers from multiple designers, however Kingmax company surpassed all competitors by introducing an ‘extraordinary’ product. This singularity basically consists in a drive’s design: the part of the casing is transparent, and this enables the user to watch over the work of an internal flash-memory chip through the glass window. No other company dared for such an experiment so far and the drive is supposed to become a real hit in the market.

Kingmax UI-05 has got a metallic streamline casing which serves a solid shield for the memory chip and other electronics. The transparent glass window is lighted up by the blue LED that indicates the drive’s operational mode. The flash drive has USB 3.0 socket and is based on the Chip-on-Board technology where the memory chip is fixed directly at the circuit board. It goes in 4, 8, 16, and 32 GB volume capacity to satisfy the needs of any customer.

Kindmax UI-05 developers stressed out that …
