ASRock Launches Z170M-PIO2 Mainboard with Unusual Layout

ASRock has stricken the general public by the development of a motherboard with an extraordinary layout. As a rule, mainboards targeting all-in-one solutions are void of expansion slots for graphics cards, due to lack of space. However, ASRock has designed a space-efficient model with an integrated PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot. Yet, it’s localized parallel to the PCB as against standard items with perpendicular slot orientation.

ASRock Z170M-PIO2 is based on Intel Z170 chipset for Socket LGA1511 platforms. It supports Intel Celeron/Pentium/Core i3/Core i5/Core i7 CPUs. The PCB features a pair of DIMM slots for the installation of DDR4 memory modules with the maximum clock frequency of 3466 MHz (up to 32 GB of capacity). Storage subsystem is introduced by 4 SATA 6 Gb/sec ports as well as a single Ultra M.2 x4 slot.

As far as expansion is concerned, the model accommodates a single PCIe 3.0 x 16 slot and one M.2 2230 slot, occupied by Wi-Fi/Bluetooth adapter. The 7.1-channel …

Enermax Platimax D.F. PSUs Hit the Market

Enermax launches a couple of platinum power supply units, earlier unveiled at the CeBIT 2016. The Platimax D.F. model is available in two versions – 500 W & 600 W – which boast 80Plus Platinum certificate thanks to 93% efficiency index. They are able to operate within 100-240 V voltage range at 10 A input. Featuring 150x160x86 mm dimensions, both PSUs can fit in any PC case.

Enermax Platimax D.F. units are furnished with a single +12V rail, estimated for 492/600 W power. At the same time the output power of +3.3 V & +5 V rails makes up 103 W. The hardware base includes high-quality Japanese capacitors as well as low-voltage DC-DC converters.

Cooling is secured by a single 139-mm fan based on Twister Bearing; it is thought to operate up to 160 thousand hours. The fan supports Dust Free Rotation technology that enables reverse rotation during the first 10 seconds.

The units employ SLEEMAX modular cabling. Each cable is coated in cloth to ensure the best management. …

D-Link Showcases AC1900 DWA-192 USB Adapter

D-Link announces the availability of a new wireless USB adapter, entitled AC1900 DWA-192. It is called to facilitate the connection of desktop/mobile PCs (as well as multimedia & gaming devices) to wireless 802.11ac networks, providing up to 1300 Mb/sec within the 5 GHz range or 600 Mb/sec within the 2.4 GHz range.

D-Link AC1900 DWA-192 features USB 3.0 interface, connecting directly to the PC/laptop without additional power source. High-speed interface ensures super-fast data transfer speed (5 Gb/sec) in order to comply with the latest wireless requirements. This adapter proves to be rather efficient when combined with AC1900 DIR-880L or AC3200 DIR-890L wireless routers.

The model employs MIMO 3x4 chip with an integrated Smart-antenna and an amplifier. It supports AC SmartBeam technology that is intended to form a directional signal, void of any interference. Moreover, it provides for a smooth broadcasting of HD video, high-quality gaming and video-chatting, fast file …
