Gigabyte Debuts with Socket AM1 Motherboards

Gigabyte is the first among AMD’s partners to introduce proprietary motherboards for an upcoming Socket AM1 platform. Initially the AM1 series will comprise only two models: the GA-AM1M-S2P and the GA-AM1M-S2H. Both feature micro-ATX form-factor and are supposed to house AMD Athlon/Sempron APUs. They employ two DIMM slots for the integration of up to 32 GB DDR3 memory with 1600 MHz frequency. The release is scheduled for March when the platform is officially introduced.



Gigabyte motherboards have got two SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports for the expansion of storage, one PCIe 2.0 x16, one PCIe x1 and one PCI connector for the connection of add-ons. Network functional consists of gigabit controller from Realtek, whereas audio functional is laid upon 7.1-channel HAD Realtek ALC 887 codec.


The differentiation between the two models lies in the set of internal/external interfaces. Hence, the GA-AM1M-S2P comes with two PS/2 ports, one D-Sub port, four USB ports (3.0 + 2.0), one RJ-45, …

Announcement of video card Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 Super Overclock

The efforts of Gigabyte engineers culminated in the release of the Radeon HD 7970 Super Overclock, also known as GV-R797SO-3GD. This is a monstrous construction with height of 64 mm (3.5 expansion slots) and a cooling system WindForce 5X. As well as preparing to be released GeForce GTX 680 SOC, the new adapter uses a five high-speed (> 4000 rev / min) fan size of 40 mm, copper evaporation chamber, and five copper heat pipes.



WindForce 5X – is one of the most expensive VGA-coolers, except for models with water blocks and liquid cooling system. It will allow to overclock Gigabyte GV-R797SO-3GD up to frequencies of 1155/7620 MHz. However, neither the temperature nor the noise performance of video card can be considered satisfactory: 85 degrees under load and 91 ° C for overclocking with increased voltage, and 8000 rpm in a heavy-duty (1185 MHz, 1.375 V) explains the situation.


Printed circuit board Radeon HD 7970 SOC is reinforced with five polymer capacitors NEC / …

The ASRock DeskMini 110 PC Is Based on the Mini-STX Motherboard and Afford the CPU Upgrade

The ASRock manufacturer has voiced, that modest-sized (155 × 155 × 80 mm only) DeskMini 110 PCs may get Intel Core processing units of the seventh generation (the Kaby Lake platform).



The key specification of the product is the presence of the Mini-STX motherboard, which is of decent size (140 × 147 mm), though, affords the CPU upgrade. DeskMini 110 will most likely possess an LGA 1151 socket. The ASRock Co. also alludes to the Core i7-7700K processor, being a 14 nm solution with four compute cores, offering the 4.2–4.5 GHz clockrate. The DDR4-2133/2400 RAM is supported.


Another peculiarity of brand-new ASRock Mini PCs is embodied in the fast Samsung 960 PRO PCIe SSD with the 512 GB capacity. The ultimate claimed data read rate is 3,534 MB/s, and the record speed – 2,130 MB/s.


The DeskMini 110 case holds two 2.5-inch drives, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi adapters, a Gigabit Ethernet network controller, alongside with USB 2.0, USB 3.0, HDMI and DP interface units.
