MSI Releases an Affordable Motherboard of Micro-ATX Form-Factor

Right after the release of FM2-A75MA-P33 motherboard, MSI has taken a decision to design one more model for AMD Trinity platform. Codenamed MSI FM2-A85XMA-E35, a new model is based on a more efficient chipset – AMD A85X. This motherboard is a typical representative of entry-level solutions, though can boast a number of attractive facilities.



MSI FM2-A85XMA-E35 is developed in micro-ATX form-factor for Socket FM2 CPU sockets. The model is known to support AMD A and Athlon II processors. This board accommodates two DIMM slots for the installation of DDR3 memory modules, the overall volume of which can rise up to 32GB. The supported memory operating frequencies might vary: DDR3-1066 MHz, 1333MHz, 1600 MHz, 1866 MHz, and 2133 MHz. Power subsystem features a rather unpretentious framework and consists of five phases; thus, this model isn't intended for overclocking purposes.


Expansion facilities implemented in MSI FM2-A85XMA-E35 can be found in any other entry-level …

Red Dragon Radeon RX 560 2GB GDDR5 OC and Red Dragon Radeon RX 560 4GB GDDR5 OC from PowerColor

Not to lag behind other vendors the PowerColor company has presented a couple of Radeon RX 560 video cards. We should note that these cards utilize the renamed Polaris 11 GPU with 1024 active streaming processors. At the moment such accelerators are not available on sale, however they are to hit the market by the end of the month.



Thus, PowerColor has produced the Red Dragon Radeon RX 560 2GB GDDR5 OC, alongside with the Red Dragon Radeon RX 560 4GB GDDR5 OC samples, differing in the memory volume (which is observable from their names) and in the GPU frequency. The higher model’s Boost clock equals to 1,180 MHz, and the lower model’s rate is 1,288 MHz. The effective memory in both cases operates at 7,000 MHz.


Chilling of PowerColor specialties is ensured by a cooler with big heatsink. The auxiliary power connector is absent. The interface set includes DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort (x3).

Biostar Announces N3150NH Mainboard with Integrated CPU

The inventory of Biostar’s mini-ITX motherboards was replenished by a new uncommon model – the N3150NH. Its key peculiarity is the availability of a 4-core Intel Celeron N3150 CPU onboard. The processor (Intel Braswell family, 14 nm technological process) comes equipped with an integrated Intel HD graphics core and a passive cooler. Its nominal clock frequency makes up 1.6 GHz, while on overclocking it accelerates up to 2.08 GHz frequency.



Biostar N3150NH houses two SO-DIMM slots, estimated for 8 GB DDR3-1600 MHz memory modules (two-channel operational mode). The connection of drives is realized via a pair of SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports. There is a possibility to install one expansion card thanks to a single PCI Express 2.0 x1 slot. Network facilities are ensured due to Realtek RTL8111H controller that supports SmartSpeedLAN utility, whereas audio production becomes possible due to the integration of Realtek ALC662 controller.
