Foxconn Introduces Two Motherboards on Intel NM70 Chipset

Foxconn is proud to introduce a pair of new mini-ITX motherboards, developed on Intel NM70 chipset. Entitled D70S-P and D70S-PD, this couple is intended for the incorporation into small-sized, power-saving and low-noise PCs, workstations, network and multimedia stations. Both new-comers are initially equipped with two-core Intel Celeron U1037 CPUs (Ivy Bridge generation). They operate at 1.8 GHz and consume 17 W only.

Foxconn D70S-P and D70S-PD feature an integrated Intel HD Graphics core that ensures smooth and quality imaging on movie watching (support for Full HD resolutions), game playing (with average demands), Internet surfing, and work with various applications. Cooling of all crucial components, including the key computing block, is secured by means of an aluminum heatsink with an onboard low-profile fan. Despite the dimensions, 170x170 mm only, the product allows for the incorporation of any contemporary hardware pieces.

Therein, memory block consists of a single …

Asus A88X-Pro Motherboard Review: Ahead of Its Time

The elaboration of completely new APUs, codenamed Kaveri, compelled AMD work up one more suitable CPU socket – FM2+. Once after its launch, the leading manufacturers of motherboards have reacted on-the-fly, releasing proprietary models for a new platform. Asus, as usual, was among the first to introduce fresh solutions. Motherboard A88X-Pro is remarkable by the support of upcoming APUs, though it will be still possible to incorporate hybrid processors of the current generation for Socket FM2. For sure, this is not a mere advantage of the board. Let’s have a look at some other specs.

Key Peculiarities

Asus A88X-Pro is developed on AMD A88X chipset and houses an onboard Radeon HD 7000/8000 series graphics. The PCB allots 4 DIMM slots for DDR3 SDRAM modules. An overall capacity of modules set might achieve 64 GB, whereas an ultimate supported clock frequency makes up 2400 MHz. Expansion section is not as bright as a demanding customer would desire; nonetheless, it …

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.
