ASRock Outs N3150DC-ITX Mainboard

ASRock has gladdened all devotees of small-sized, power-efficient & sustainable PC/multimedia systems by the introduction of a mini-ITX motherboard, entitled N3150DC-ITX. The model comes equipped with a 4-core Intel Atom N3150 CPU, running at 1.6 GHz basic frequency with the possibility to overclock up to 2.08 GHz frequency. Its key privilege is a sparing TDP level – 6 W only.

ASRock N3150DC-ITX boasts a totally passive cooling: the PCB houses a noiseless heatspreader without a fan. Memory subsystem is represented by two SO-DIMM slots which support the installation of DDR3/DDR3L-1600 MHz modules. The PCB teases only top-tier hardware components, including solid-state capacitors, ELNA audio caps, etc.

Storage might be organized due to a pair of SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports and the same number of SATA II 3 Gb/sec ports. A single PCI-e 2.0 x1 slot is intended for an expansion card, while mini PCI-e Express slot – for a wireless network interface module.

Gigabyte Intros Affordable GA-B85M-D2V Plus Mainboard

Micro-ATX/mini-ITX mainboards keep on capturing the market due to the augmentation of small-sized PC platforms. Against this background, Gigabyte is constantly enlarging its portfolio of compact motherboards. Take GA-B85M-D2V Plus alone. This model might boast an optimized functional and an improved audio subsystem combined with a sleek design and a range of protection doo-dads.

Gigabyte GA-B85M-D2V Plus takes Intel B85 chipset as the basis. The latter supports Socket LGA1150 CPUs (Pentium, Celeron, Intel Core). The company’s designers employed an improved fiberglass mode of superposition on elaboration of PCB textolite; this is called to protect the board from humidity, electrostatic discharge and voltage instability.

The board’s layout supports Ultra Durable 4 Plus design that involves only high-quality components, like solid-state capacitors, transistors with low open channel resistance. The PCB is equipped with two DIMM slots ready for 16 GB of DDR3 memory (1600 …

Akasa Prepares Its Euler for Upcoming Release

Recent global IT exhibition Computex 2012 has given promising prospects for Akasa company that introduced its new brand chassis. Codenamed Euler, this chassis might serve the basis for the noiseless mini-PCs. Due to the implementation of aluminum casing in design and its simultaneous substitute of a radiator, this device is able to function along with passive cooling system.

Akasa representatives have provided the Internet community with the first shots of Euler. Those pictures demonstrate that the future product will consist of a block which will remove the excessive heat from the CPU and its surrounding components. The model will support devices which show up to 35W TDP index. This chassis will be compatible with motherboards of mini-ATX form-factor and low-capacity two-core processors.

According to the words of the company's representatives, Euler is going to be released this September. The price policy has not been voiced so far, but hardware specialists are certain …
