ECS Develops Haswell-Compatible Motherboard Z87H3-A2X Extreme

At the cusp of an official release of Intel’s fourth generation processors each hardware designer tries to elaborate new Haswell-compatible components. Motherboard manufacturers are probably the ones to introduce the lion’s share of such products. ECS is not an exception. According to the data provided by a reputable source, ECS is soon going to release its newest prime-class board codenamed Z87H3-A2X Extreme. The first meeting with the new-comer is planned within the boundaries of Computex 2013 exhibition taking place in June.



As seen from the codename, ECS Z87H3-A2X Extreme is based on Intel Z87 Express chipset covered by a black-and-red heatsink. The model employs full-sized printed circuit board, Socket LGA1150, and 12-phase VRM for CPU power supply with gold-plate solid-state capacitors. Power subsystem elements are cooled down by a voluminous CoolTech V heatsink. This heatsink is connected with a chipset one by means of a nickel-plated copper heat pipe.

Meet a Pair of ASRock Motherboards with Support for AMD AMP2400+ MHz

ASRock is proud to announce that its two motherboard models are the first in the market to receive AMD AMP 2400+ MHz support, verified by a corresponding certificate. Hence, the FM2A88X Extreme 6+ and the FM2A88X-ITX+ are now officially optimized for an enhanced overclocking of memory modules via dedicated menu sections in UEFI BIOS. Moreover, the manufacturer promises to ‘endow’ the rest of FM2+ line with the support for a new memory standard.



Both greenhorns are based on AMD A88X chipset and are compatible with AMD A processors for Socket FM2+ platform. Along with the similarities, the models have a lot of distinctive features, described below.


ASRock FM2A88X Extreme6+ features the following specs:

— form-factor: ATX;

— VRM: 8+2 phases;

— expansion slots: two PCIe 3.0 x16, two PCI, two PCIe 2.0 x1, one PCIe 2.0 x16;

— memory: four DIMM slots, two-channel DDR3 modules, AMP2400+ MHz support, maximal capacity – 64 GB;

— storage: seven SATA …

Overview of the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X Processor

Let's view over the AMD top processor model – Ryzen 7 1800X shipped in the original packaging, with the appearance of which the designers worked quite hard. In general, with the release of Ryzen, the degree of pathos in novelties is simply off-scale from a box to software; all the seriousness of the approach to the release of Zen solutions could be felt.


But for the CPU itself, the user will find in the box a sticker with the Ryzen logo for the case, as well as the installation instructions. The lack of a cooling system is not surprising as the Ryzen 7 1800X/1700X processors are still available only without it.


Features


Externally, the body of the new products has not changed at all since the release of K8, it has the same large heat distribution top completely covers the CPU’s substrate, but unlike the old solutions, the name of the series is now engraved in large letters and it is unlikely that it will be confused with Bulldozer and derivatives.
