Greeting Asus Maximus VI Formula Gaming Motherboard

Asus is going to put on sale its newest LGA1150 motherboard of ROG (Republic of Gamers) series, entitled Maximus VI Formula. The board features ATX form-factor and is based on Intel Z87 chipset that supports all Haswell-based Intel Core processors. The most peculiar thing about the new-comer is the availability of ROG Armor enclosure that covers the PCB on both sides. The top cover is made of ABS; it prevents the heat produced by the surrounding components (i.e. graphics adapters) from warming up the CPU and VRM systems. The rear cover is made of SECC steel that stops the PCB from bending.

Motherboard Maximus VI Formula houses four DIMM slots that support up to 32 GB dual-channel DDR3 memory modules with up to 3100 O.C MHz frequencies. 8-channel VRM system consists of NexFET transistors, Black Wing throttles, and high-efficiency solid-state capacitors. All power components are cooled down by a dedicated heatsink that is a part of a liquid-cooling system. This motherboard model …

ASRock Surfaces J3355B-ITX Mainboard

ASRock enters the market with a mainboard, targeting new Intel Apollo Lake CPUs (14 nm, Intel Goldmont micro-architecture). The J3355B-ITX model is thought to be integrated within laptops or entry-level all-in-one solutions. As seen from the codename, the board is developed in mini-ITX form-factor. It comes equipped with Intel Celeron J3355 processor, operating at 2.0-2.5 GHz frequency. The CPU features 10 W TDP; hence, cooling is backed by a noiseless passive cooler.

ASRock J3355B-ITX accommodates a pair of SO-DIMM slots for DDR3/DDRL3 modules with 1866 MHz frequency (up to 16 GB). The board comes with an integrated Intel HD Graphics 500 GPU that runs at 700 MHz. The connection of drives is realized via two SATA III ports. The incorporated PCIe 2.0 x16 slot is optimal for expansion cards, rather than a VGA card.

To continue, audio subsystem is based on 7.1-channel Realtek ALC887 controller, whereas network facilities are ensured with the help of Realtek RTL8111GR …

PNY Debuts with GeForce GTX 750 and GTX 750 Ti Adapters

PNY, following an echelon of graphics cards manufacturers, has launched its own versions of Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 750 adapters. The PNY GeForce GTX 750 and PNY GeForce GTX 750 Ti are based on power-efficient Maxwell architecture that does not compromise on performance. Both new-comers operate at etalon frequencies and are thought to provide entry-level customers with some outstanding facilities. The preliminary retail price of models makes up $124 and $149 for GTX 750 and Ti version correspondingly.

The PNY GeForce GTX 750 employs GM107-300 GPU (512 CUDA cores), whereas the PNY GeForce GTX 750 Ti is equipped with GM107-400 GPU (640 CUDA cores). Both run at 1020 MHz (nominal) / 1085 MHz (boost) clock frequency. The products are differentiated also by the incorporation of video memory.

The first model involves 1 GB of GDDR5 memory; it uses 128-bit interface and runs at 1250 MHz (nominal) / 5000 MHz (efficient) frequency. At the same time, the second model involves 2 GB of …
