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 …

Samsung Readies a Couple of Curved Monitors: CF791 & CFG70

Samsung has replenished its lineup of gaming products with a couple of new monitors with a curved framework. The CF791 is a 34-inch display with 4 ms response time, whereas its comrade, the CFG70, is shipped in 23.5-inch & 27-inch variations; their response time equals to 1 ms. Both models are developed on VA panel with 1500-1800 mm curvature.



Samsung CF791 boasts 3400x1400 pixels resolution, while Samsung CFG70 features Full HD resolution (1920x1080). The integrated panel ensures the widest viewing angles – 178/178 degrees in both aspects, 125% coverage in sRGB environment. The latter is due to the incorporation of Quantum Dot technology which enhances color rendering and contrast showings.
