Akasa Prepares Its Euler for Upcoming Release

Recent global IT exhibition Computex 2012 has given promising prospects for Akasa company that introduced its new brand chassis. Codenamed Euler, this chassis might serve the basis for the noiseless mini-PCs. Due to the implementation of aluminum casing in design and its simultaneous substitute of a radiator, this device is able to function along with passive cooling system.

Akasa representatives have provided the Internet community with the first shots of Euler. Those pictures demonstrate that the future product will consist of a block which will remove the excessive heat from the CPU and its surrounding components. The model will support devices which show up to 35W TDP index. This chassis will be compatible with motherboards of mini-ATX form-factor and low-capacity two-core processors.

According to the words of the company's representatives, Euler is going to be released this September. The price policy has not been voiced so far, but hardware specialists are certain …

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 …

Gigabyte Intros Affordable GA-B85M-D2V Plus Mainboard

Micro-ATX/mini-ITX mainboards keep on capturing the market due to the augmentation of small-sized PC platforms. Against this background, Gigabyte is constantly enlarging its portfolio of compact motherboards. Take GA-B85M-D2V Plus alone. This model might boast an optimized functional and an improved audio subsystem combined with a sleek design and a range of protection doo-dads.

Gigabyte GA-B85M-D2V Plus takes Intel B85 chipset as the basis. The latter supports Socket LGA1150 CPUs (Pentium, Celeron, Intel Core). The company’s designers employed an improved fiberglass mode of superposition on elaboration of PCB textolite; this is called to protect the board from humidity, electrostatic discharge and voltage instability.

The board’s layout supports Ultra Durable 4 Plus design that involves only high-quality components, like solid-state capacitors, transistors with low open channel resistance. The PCB is equipped with two DIMM slots ready for 16 GB of DDR3 memory (1600 …
