MSI Announces Z170A PC Mate Mainboard

MSI has recently habituated to launching ever newer and more efficient mainboards. This time the company unveils Z170A PC Mate full ATX model that draws power via 24-pin ATX and 8-pin EPS sockets. It is based on Intel Z170 chipset and is estimated for Intel Core LGA1151 (Skylake) CPUs. The core cooperates closely with DDR4 3300 MHz memory (4 slots are available, two-channel mode), the maximal volume of which might achieve 64 GB.



MSI Z170A PC Mate comes equipped with 6-phase VRM system. The model is rich in expansion facilities: it offers one PCI Express 3.0 x16, one PCI Express 3.0 x4, three PCI Express 3.0 x1, and a pair of PCI slots. The connection of drives is realized due to 1x M.2 slot 32 Gb/sec, 1x SATA Express 16 Gb/sec, and 6x SATA III 6 Gb/sec.


As far as interfaces are concerned, this motherboard houses six USB 3.0 ports, four USB 2.0 ports, a couple of USB 3.1 ports, as well as three different video ports: HDMI 2.0, D-Sub and DVI. Besides, network connection …

Which DDR3 SDRAM is better for Ivy Bridge

The overclocker memory is now in the category of products for perfectionists, still the common users are pleased with usual modules DDR3-1600 or DDR3-1333 SDRAM. The issue appears related to the release of processors Ivy Bridge series, which in some aspects are similar to its predecessors, still have some distinctive features.



Ivy Bridge processors are restricted on the maximum frequency supported by the DDR3 SDRAM. This indicates the theoretical chance of these processors work with high-speed memory DDR3-3200 SDRAM. Developers of overclocker memory package perceived the change in rules with certain enthusiasm: there are DDR3-2400 modules available in stores. The gap in frequencies of «elite» and «running» versions of the memory has grown twice in size. It won’t have a noteworthy blow on the work of commonly used tasks in systems.


The memory controller in the Ivy Bridge can work both in symmetric mode, with delay, frequency and volume modules in memory channels, and …

I-O Data Introduces New SSDN-3V to the Home Market

I-O Data, a well-known Japanese developer of top-tier peripheral and interface products, is going to introduce its new SSD series, codenamed SSDN-3V. The newbies will become available in the home market already at the end of the current month. The series involves three models of 60 GB (SSDN-3V60), 120 GB(SSDN-3V120), and 240 GB (SSDN-3V240) capacities. All the models are thought to support SATA 6 Gb/sec interface.



Solid-state drives from I-O Data are based on SandForce/LSI SF-2281 controller and employ NAND flash-memory, designed under 24 nm technological process. SSDs feature 7 mm case depth, but the availability of a dedicated adapter promotes for their installation into a standard 9.5 mm drive bay.


In regard to performance, SSDN-V3 drives offer up to 306 MB/sec speed on consecutive reading operations and up to 186 MB/sec on consecutive writing operations.


Moreover, the manufacturer will deliver the products in a package with a special adapter for the connection …
