Biostar to Release a Budget-Oriented A68I-450 Deluxe Motherboard

Biostar Microtech is going to release a new budget-oriented motherboard of mini-ITX form-factor. Codenamed Biostar A68I-450 Deluxe, it is peculiar by the employment of an onboard two-core hybrid processor – AMD 450D. The latter comprises two x86 Bobcat blocks, running at 1.65 GHz, and an in-built AMD Radeon HD 6320 graphics that is compatible with DirectX 11 standard. It should be noted that this CPU is cooled down thanks to a small-sized fan.



The motherboard is based on AMD A68 chipset for socket BGA FT1. It is able to offer a pair of 240-contact DIMM slots for DDR3 RAM with the maximal clock frequency of 1066 MHz (up to 16 GB modules). Expansion facilities are represented by a single PCIe 2.0 x16 slot, while storage is secured by three SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports. Network operation is relied on gigabit Ethernet adapter (Realtek RTL8111F), whereas audio subsystem runs under Realtek ALC662 controller, providing 5.1-channel sounding.


To continue, Biostar A68I-450 Deluxe is …

Gigabyte to Release GA-Z170X-SOC Force Mainboard for Overclockers

Gigabyte has expanded its line of overclocking solutions by a new motherboard, codenamed GA-Z170X-SOC Force. The greenhorn is based on Intel Z170 chipset, supporting Skylake-S CPUs for LGA 1151 socket (14-nm technological process). The PCB is distinguished by the inclusion of fiery-orange components and a sophisticated allocation of hardware.



Gigabyte GA-Z170X-SOC Force features 22-phase VRM system and three power connectors: ATX12V, EPS12V & OC PEG. The PCB incorporates such high-quality component as DrMOS PowIRstage from International Rectifier. All power elements might be paired with hybrid cooling; for this purpose, the customer has to acquire G1/4 fittings.


The motherboard accommodates 4 slots for DDR4-3300 MHz RAM with the maximal capacity of 64 GB. Storage subsystem might be organized thanks to 9 SATA III ports, 3 SATA Express ports (10 Gb/sec bandwidth index), 3 M.2 Socket 3 ports (32 Gb/sec bandwidth index), and a pair of USB 3.1 Type-A/Type-C ports.

MSI Adds a Pair of GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G Graphics Cards to Its Portfolio

It feels as if MSI never stops experimenting with its PC solutions. This time the company decided to tinker with color gamut of the graphics cards. Therewith, it introduced a couple of comic-colored video cards, entitled GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G & GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G OC. The black-and-gray coating might become a stylish add-on to any gaming rig.



Both video cards are based on Nvidia GP104-200 GPU (16 FinFET, Pascal) with 1920 CUDA, 120 TMUs & 64 ROPs. The models are able to operate in three modes: Silent, Gaming and OC; hence, the core’s clock frequencies depend on the mode. MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G operates at 1506/1683 MHz (base/dynamic) in Silent mode; 1518/1708 MHz in Gaming mode and 1531/1721 MHz in OC mode. The accompanying 8 GB of GDDR5 video memory (256-bit) runs equally on any conditions – 8008 MHz.


In its turn, MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G OC is able to demonstrate the following performance index: 1506/1683 MHz in …
