Gigabyte Launches Small-Sized GA-ABN350N-Gaming WiFi Mainboard

Gigabyte Technology adds another mainboard to its inventory: this time it’s GA-ABN350N-Gaming WiFi model, designed in Mini-ITX form-factor. The greenhorn is compatible with AMD AM4 platform as well as APU Raven Ridge provided that UEFI firmware is updated. It houses AMD B350 chipset that is eligible for overclocking.



Gigabyte GA-ABN350N-Gaming WiFi accommodates a 6-phase VRM system, allowing to install up to 32 GB of DDR4-3200 MHz memory modules. Expansion facilities are backed by a single PCIe 3.0 x16 bus, whereas storage subsystem is represented by four SATA III ports & one M.2 slot.


Furthermore, the back panel features a pair of USB 3.1 Gen2 ports, four USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports, in addition to DisplayPort & HDMI video outputs. Network facilities are supported by Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi 802.11 adapters; besides, there is a wired gigabit controller, developed by Realtek.


Some other peculiarities of the motherboard include the integration of RGB Fusion LED backlight …

ECS to Release a Small-Sized H110S-2P Motherboard

ECS has officially introduced a new mini-STX motherboard, entitled H110S-2P. Featuring 147x140 mm dimensions, the greenhorn is based on Intel H110 chipset for Socket LGA1151 platform. The most peculiar thing about the mainboard is the availability of a full-sized LGA socket which allows for the installation of desktop CPUs (Intel Pentium/Celeron/Core i3/Core i5/Core i7) with the maximal TDP of 65 W.



Upon the whole, the model is targeting small-sized PCs. ECS H110S-2P accommodates a pair of SO-DIMM slots with support for 32 GB of DDR4-2133 MHz memory modules. Storage subsystem is backed by a single SATA 6 Gb/sec port & a single M.2 slot for SSD. There is also another M.2 slot but it is intended for the integration of wireless Wi-Fi/Bluetooth modules.


Audio subsystem is developed on the basis of Realtek ALC662 controller, whereas network facilities – on the basis of Realtek 8111H controller. The motherboard comes equipped with a couple of 3.5-mm audio ports, one RJ-45 …

Haswell processors for laptops will consume up to 57 W, desktop - up to 100

Intel provides with three graphics levels: GT1, GT2 and GT3. Desktop processors won’t receive graphics performance higher than GT2, but mobile processors will be able to boast of with GT3 class. Support of PCI Express 3.0 for Haswell processors will be quite usual characteristics, but at the memory controller little progress is seen — yet provides dual-channel DDR3-1600.



By energy consumption Haswell desktop versions will be divided into models with values of 35, 45, 65 and 95 watts of TDP level. For mobile processors the values are ​​37, 47 and 57 W. Finally, ultra book processors with built-in system logic will be filled by TDP level not more than 15 watts. It is assumed that this will enable them, among other things, be in standby mode up to 10 days without charge.


The desire of Intel to compete with AMD in terms of performance integrated in graphics processor, will add some work to companies producing cooling systems for laptops. The developers report about …
