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 …

MSI Offers H87I AC Motherboard for Demanding PC Builders

MSI has made a pleasing presentation for all builders and enthusiasts who would like to create a small-sized but highly efficient gaming or multimedia system. The MSI H87I AC is designed in mini-ITX form-factor, featuring 170x170 mm dimensions only. The core of the board is Intel H87 Express chipset that supports all Haswell CPUs with LGA1150 socket. According to the latest data, the model is already available in the European market for approximately 102 EUR.

The H87I AC accommodates two DIMM slots, available for the incorporation of DDR3 modules with the maximal frequency of 1600 MHz. The latter might work in a two-channel mode and reach 16 GB capacity. Disk subsystem is organized by means of four SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports, which allow for the creation of diverse RAID configurations (i.e. 0, 1, 5, 10, AHCI).

Expansion is realized due to a single PCI-e 3.0 x16 connector and one mini-PCI-e (half-size) connector for network modules. Network abilities are supported by one …
