Gigabyte Showcases a Couple of Gaming Mainboards with Onboard Liquid Coolers

Gigabyte teamed up with EK Water Blocks in order to develop a pair of off-beat motherboards. The GA-X99-Ultra-Gaming-EK and the GA-Z170X-Gaming 7-EK are differentiated from their predecessors by the integration of EK-Supremacy EVO X99 & EK-FB GA-Z170X waterblocks. The latter is sure to cool down not only the CPU and its environment but also key components of the power subsystem.

Gigabyte GA-X99-Ultra Gaming-EK is developed on Intel X99 chipset, targeting Intel Core i7 CPUs for Socket LGA2011-3 platform. The PCB offers 8 DIMM slots for DDR4-3600 MHz memory (up to 128 GB), four PCIe 3.0 x16 expansion slots and a single PCIe 2.0 x1 slot. The ATX motherboard features 305x244 mm dimensions.

Storage subsystem of the model is represented by one M.2 Socket 3 slot, one U.2 slot, one SATA Express port as well as eight SATA III (6 Gb/sec) ports. One more M.2 Socket 1 is occupied by Wi-Fi/Bluetooth adapter. 7-1 channel audio subsystem is based on Realtek ALC1150 controller, whereas …

First SSDs from Asus to be Released Already in May

First seen at CES 2013 exhibition, Asus ROG RAIDR solid-state drives are on their final stage of development before an official release in May. Unlike the majority of contemporary SSD solutions in the market, the product from Asus features quite distinct form-factor, similar to expansion cards. The new drive is known to employ PCI Express 2.0 x2 interface with the support of x16/x8/x4 slots.

According to the preliminary data, ROG RAIDR solid-state drives will be available in two capacity variations – 120 GB and 240 GB. Both models will run under a couple of SandForce SF2281 controllers, comprised into RAID 0 array. MLC NAND flash-memory chips from Toshiba (designed under 19 nm technological process) will be the heart of revolutionary SSDs. Irrespective of the overall differentiation, ROG RAIDR will support a range of technologies traditional SSDs support, including S.M.A.R.T., TRIM and NCQ.

With the respect to the performance, both drives will be able to demonstrate …
