Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6580 @ TBreak

“Today we take a look at Intel’s mighty QX6850 CPU- their current top of the line CPU. Before the release of this CPU, Intel gave you a choice of either buying a faster dual core CPU or a slightly slower quad core CPU but with the QX6850, Intel throws all of its muscle behind it allowing you to get their fastest Core2 CPU with four cores.”

“MSI’s K9AG Neo2 Digital has an HDMI port right at the back. That means the K9AG Neo2 Digital is ready for HTPC use right out of the box – as opposed to a DVI-to-HDMI converter, the HDMI jack signifies it has audio as well as video signals. The former can only provide the HDMI video signal.”

ECS G31T-M @ TechPowerUp!

“ECS has released the ECS G31T-M as affordable Core 2 Duo motherboard which supports the latest Quad-Core and 1333 FSB CPUs at an affordable price of less than $75. In our testing we saw that performance is on par with much more expensive high-end motherboards. The integrated Intel VGA is also a nice addition because you don’t have to buy a video card for your office machine or can use it to play back video in a Media PC.”

“MSI has used the RD780 chipset in a very basic CrossFire motherboard that is satisfyingly cheap but we have our reservations about the memory and graphics performance of this pre-production sample.”

“Asus have done a great job with the BIOS and it is one of the easiest we have ever used. Even the most inexperienced overclocker should be able to leave pretty much everything on automatic and achieve a very high overclock. Those who know what they are doing will have plenty to play with as the options are extensive to say the least.”

“Well, for years after that I was a true diehard AMD fan. That is, until the tides recently turned and the tsunami of C2D arrived on the shores. Recently, Intel has been dominating the processor scene with its new line of Core 2 Duo’s. Well, once again Intel has stepped up to the plate by literally stepping up the FSB from 1066 to 1333. This new line of CPU’s have a model of Exx50 which represents the 1333FSB.”

“We’re taking a close look at Foxconn’s microATX G33M-S mainboard. This G33-based board sports Intel’s latest integrated graphics processor, the GMA 3100, but can that get the better of the current IGP champion, AMD’s 690G?”
