“Being a graphics card maker, there is one area that NVIDIA has a leg up, that being the IGP market. For the basic home PC and office workstation, IGP based boards really do have a home. Even for a Digital Home PC that does nothing but play movies and record TV programs, integrated graphics is perfect as there is no need to add in extra expansive hardware.”

“Today we are looking at the ABIT IP35 Off Limits board based around the Intel P35 chipset and DDR2 memory. It’s a scaled down version of the IP35 Pro Off Limits board we tested a while ago. ABIT has gone for a blue PCB with blue and black expansion slots, along with blue and black memory slots. The board measures 30x24cm so it’s of the full extended ATX sizing and will require a good case to be installed into.”

“We recently got our hands on a motherboard from Asus, the P5N-T Deluxe, that we thought you’d like to check out. The P5N-T Deluxe is Asus’ first nForce 780i SLI chipset-based motherboard. It features three PCI Express x16 slots and support for 3-way SLI, among many other things. We also pulled off the motherboard’s oversized cooling apparatus to expose all of the chips underneath.”

“The “Black Pearl” edition P5K3 Premium motherboard has several distinctive features that sets it apart from the crowd. First and foremost is the lack of DIMM slots for the system memory. The reason becomes evident when you take a closer look. The memory is actually built onto the board and is heavily heatsinked to reduce its operating temperatures and improve its ability to overclock.”

“AMD’s 690 chipset doesn’t stop turning heads. The way it was introduced, as a low-priced alternative to Intel, with budget trim and no enthusiast options, belittled its raucous performance. It looked like a stopgap, especially since AMD had little to do with its design and released it as a last foray before the new AMD could re-group.”

“‘We have developed a design manifesto we call SWORD, which focuses on delivering more performance capability with better value for money, whilst listening to the feedback of real enthusiasts. is going to be a great home for our products on the internet, and a really interesting place for enthusiasts to visit and learn more about our products and philosophy.”

“In May, Intel released the G33 Express chipset that supports the latest multi-core processors up to 1333MHz FSB and the upcoming 45nm platform. This chipset was also developed to support the latest high-definition video capabilities as well as support HD DVD and Blu-ray technologies. Gigabyte has taken full advantage of this chipset’s performance capabilities with the GA-G33M-S2H.”

ASUS P53K Deluxe

“Today we are taking a look at a Asus P53K Deluxe motherboard. What is deluxe about this? Well features like Wifi, and HDMI should make you take extra time in considering this card. Also, it supports DDR3 and has the performance features most Asus cards have; or at least that is what they say. So let’s take a closer look at this motherboard and see how it actually does perform.”

“Foxconn’s MARS motherboard was a breeze to work with, I particularly liked the physical power, reset and clear CMOS buttons. Enthusiasts will find a very tweakable BIOS, and the Gladiator BIOS tools are a real time saver. Be warned though, if you’re new to the overclocking game don’t go too crazy with the voltage options, you can permanently damage your hardware!”


ECS A770M-A @ OC Club

“The A770M-A is an entry level AMD 7 series (770/790X/790FX) ATX size motherboard for the Spider platform (when paired with a Phenom CPU and ATI 3800 series graphics card). Upon first glance, the layout of the board looks promising. It has support for the Quad Core Phenom CPU as well as Dual and Single Core AM2 CPUs, so current AM2 users have an easy upgrade path to the Spider platform that should not break the bank all at once.”
