Gigabyte Intros Micro-ATX Motherboards on Intel H81 Express Chipset

Gigabyte Technology introduces three new motherboards of micro-ATX form-factor, based on Intel H81 Express chipset. The new-comers, entitled GA-H81M-DS2, GA-H81M-D3V and GA-H81M-D2V, are equipped with LGA1150 socket that supports Intel Haswell CPUs. Their efficiency and durability is the result of the implementation of Gigabyte Ultra Durable 4 Plus concept, On/Off Charge and UEFI DualBIOS technologies, as well as of prime capacitors with a solid electrolyte. Each motherboard is unique, so the specifications of each item are worth of being detailed.



Gigabyte GA-H81M-DS2 features:

— 226 x 170 mm dimensions;

— the possibility of integrating up to 16 GB of two-channel DDR3 memory with up to 1600 MHz frequency;

— a pair of SATA II and SATA III ports;

— a pair of PCI Express x1 slots and a single PCI Express x16 slot;

— gigabit Ethernet port;

— Realtek ALC887 controller with the support of HD Audio sounding;

— rear I/O panel with RJ-45 port, D-Sub, …

MSI Launches Z87 MPower MAX AC Overclocking Motherboard

All PC enthusiasts and overclockers are now able to enjoy all the privileges of a wireless connection thanks to a new release from MSI. The company’s latest addition to Z87 motherboard series – the Z87 MPower MAX AC – might boast the incorporation of Intel Dual Band module that supports Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 4.0 connections. Moreover, due to the employment of two frequency bands (2.4/5 GHz), the speed of wireless data transfer achieves 867 Mb/sec.



It goes without saying that MSI Z87 MPower MAX AC is based on Intel Z87 Express chipset that supports Intel Haswell CPUs for socket LGA1150. All system components are soldered on a black-and-yellow 6-layer PCB; hardware base is implemented according to MSI Military Class 4 concept. Here, one may find Solid CAP capacitors, Dark Choke throttles, and DrMOS voltage regulators.


The PCB contains four DIMM slots for the installation of DDR3 memory modules (up to 16 GB) with the maximal clock frequency of 3000 MHz. …

Overview of the AMD Radeon RX 580 Video Card

Almost a year has passed since the announcement of the AMD mid-price video card – Radeon RX 480 which is a bestseller on the market. It is not difficult to guess why: good performance for the cost, as well as decent energy efficiency, previously unavailable to users of the company's graphics solutions, have turned out to be good.


But the model has one flaw, or rather a feature – in pursuit of a high ratio of speed and power consumption, AMD developers have been so carried away by this goal that they have absolutely forgotten about the potential rival that has not been sitting idly by. The GeForce GTX 1060 family has been updated with several modifications: with three and six gigabytes of memory, with reference and increased memory frequency.


As a result, the emerging AMD has to compete for the leading places with two competitors. To this end, engineers have taken the energy efficiency issue to a secondary place and start to optimizing in the pursuit of speed.
