ECS NM70-I Motherboard: Pioneer in Its Class

ECS decided to tackle the problem of sameness, developing a new motherboard on the basis of Intel NM70 Express chips. The implementation exactly of these chips makes the board a pioneer in its product class. ECS NM70-I is designed in mini-ITX form factor and houses Intel Celeron 847/807 CPU. The latter consumes only 17W of power to add the board power-efficient properties. Such approach to layout secures a harmonious balance between performance parameters and price ranges, and is an ideal match for compact PC systems.

Irrespective of the initial motherboard's compact dimensions, the manufacturer stipulated expansion opportunities if the user finds such a need in future employment. The availability of 1x PCI Express slot x16, SATA 3Gb/sec and 6Gb/sec sockets promote for the unimpeded upgrade of video system and data storage devices. ECS NM70-I facilities allow the customer to play back high-contrast HD and Blue-Ray multimedia content. Moreover, ECS equips its board with two …

Galaxy Unveils the GTX 760 Gamer and the GTX 780 Ti HOF Graphics Cards

Galaxy Microsystems, an official partner of Nvidia, has just introduced a couple of proprietary graphics solutions based on Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 760 and GeForce GTX 780 Ti adapters. Codenamed GTX 760 Gamer and GeForce GTX 780 Ti HOF (Hall of Fame), both products are differentiated by a refined design, combined with unmatched performance.

Galaxy GTX 760 Gamer

This graphics card is attributed to the mid-end solutions. It is developed on Nvidia GK104-225-A2 chip (28 nm) that involves 1152 CUDA cores, 32 ROPs, and 96 TMUs. The GPU operates at 1086 MHz, although has the potential to rise up to 1150 MHz on overclocking. The card boasts the availability of 4 GB GDDR5 memory with 256-bit bus. Its effective clock memory makes up 6 GHz. Cooling process is realized by means of a voluminous cooler, supplemented by two 80 mm fans and a metallic shield.

This model is peculiar by an original white PCB and the implementation of factory …

Greeting an Affordable Z170A-X1/3.1 Mainboard from ASRock

ASRock is known for developing high-quality hardware components for a relatively affordable price. Thence, its latest Z170A-X1/3.1 ATX mainboard is not an exception, since its price tag does not go beyond $100. In order to cheapen the prime cost, the manufacturer backed away SATA Express & M.2 connectors, limiting the PCB by six SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports.

To add, instead of a modern 8-channel audio controller it incorporated a well-known Realtek ALC892 item. The other boons of modernity remained unchanged. Thus, ASRock took Intel Z170 top chipset as the basis for the motherboard. The chipset is targeting the latest Intel Skylake CPUs for Socket LGA1151. The PCB accommodates 4 DIMM slots for dual-channel DDR4-3466 MHz RAM (up to 64 GB max. capacity).

Graphics facilities are ensured thanks to a pair of PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots, although there are three more PCI Express 3.0 x1 slots for the connection of other items. Network options are entrusted to gigabit Intel I219V LAN …
