ASRock Launches Z170M-PIO2 Mainboard with Unusual Layout

ASRock has stricken the general public by the development of a motherboard with an extraordinary layout. As a rule, mainboards targeting all-in-one solutions are void of expansion slots for graphics cards, due to lack of space. However, ASRock has designed a space-efficient model with an integrated PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot. Yet, it’s localized parallel to the PCB as against standard items with perpendicular slot orientation.



ASRock Z170M-PIO2 is based on Intel Z170 chipset for Socket LGA1511 platforms. It supports Intel Celeron/Pentium/Core i3/Core i5/Core i7 CPUs. The PCB features a pair of DIMM slots for the installation of DDR4 memory modules with the maximum clock frequency of 3466 MHz (up to 32 GB of capacity). Storage subsystem is introduced by 4 SATA 6 Gb/sec ports as well as a single Ultra M.2 x4 slot.


As far as expansion is concerned, the model accommodates a single PCIe 3.0 x 16 slot and one M.2 2230 slot, occupied by Wi-Fi/Bluetooth adapter. The 7.1-channel …

Future Technologies are Right Here with Sharp PN-K321H Monitor

IGZO, an advanced technology employing semiconductors on Indium, Gallium, Zinc, and Oxide basis, is gradually penetrating PC monitors industry. It is called to ensure an ultra-high pixel density and, as a result, — an ultra-high sharpness. For sure, being an innovative approach in the development of monitors, end-products currently cost a pretty penny. Sharp is considered to be a pioneer in this endeavor, vigorously implementing IGZO panel in its latest displays.



Hence, Sharp has officially announced the launch of a new 32-inch monitor based on IGZO array and entitled PN-K321H. It features 35 mm case depth, 16:9 aspect ratio, and quite wide viewing angles. According to the manufacturer, the nominal resolution index is estimated as 3840x2160 pixels. The display is housed on a voluminous stand that enables its rotation at 90 degrees to achieve portrait mode arrangement.


Due to the implementation of IGZO panel with high electron mobility, Sharp has managed to attain the …
