EVGA 680i SLI 775 A1

EVGA 680i SLI 775 A1 @ Motherboards.org

“EVGA has the best warranty in the motherboard business for the A1 series boards and that is hard to beat from any angle. Most of these NVIDIA chipset motherboards are identical in almost every way except cosmetics so actually any 680i motherboard will be basically the same quality.”

Gigabyte GA-X38T-DQ6

“We return to Gigabyte’s stables to give their high-end X38 based DQ6 series another go. This time, we take the DDR3 GA-X38T-DQ6 out for a spin instead. How does the GA-X38T-DQ6 fare in comparison to the DDR-only GA-X38-DQ6? Find out inside.”


ASUS P5K @ TweakTown

“So far we have looked at a few P35 boards both based on DDR2 and DDR3 memory technologies from the major players like GIGABYTE, ASUS, MSI, Universal abit and even from the more unfamiliar companies like Foxconn and ECS. All of these offer a pretty good design and feature set depending on what your intent is.”

Biostar TP35D2-A7

Biostar TP35D2-A7 @ PCStats

“Biostar’s TP35D2-A7 motherboard is built with Intel’s P35 Express and ICH9 chipsets, so with a Core 2 Duo or Core 2 Quad processor it becomes the backbone for a good WindowsXP or Vista PC. If you’re not interested in frills you can get the performance of the P35 Express without blowing a lot of money. Yup, performance without spending a fortune.”

MSI K9AG Neo2-Digital

MSI K9AG Neo2-Digital @ ViperLair

“Performance-wise, the MSI K9AG Neo2-Digital often flip flopped between the GeForce 6150 equipped MSI C51PV and the 690G based MSI K9AGM2-FIH. Synthetic benchmarks still favoured NVIDIA slightly, and the application and gaming benchmarks ended in the AMD 690G’s favour.”

Foxconn A690GM2MA-RS2H

Foxconn A690GM2MA-RS2H @ PCStats

“The Foxconn A690GM2MA-RS2H motherboard is based around AMD’s 690G / SB600 chipsets, and although it has both DVI and analog video outputs, it regrettably lacks the HDMI jack that many other AMD690G motherboards boast. In any case if you wanted to hook up the Foxconn A690GM2MA-RS2H motherboard to a HDTV, there’s always the DVI port.”


MSI P6NGM @ HardwareZone

“MSI’s latest mainstream all-in-one motherboard runs on NVIDIA’s new GeForce 7150/nForce 630i mGPU chipset. Its features are nothing to shout about, but having a NVIDIA GPU in the Intel IGP market means finally getting decent compatibility for games and 3D applications alike.”

Gigabyte GA-P35-DS4

Gigabyte GA-P35-DS4 @ Bjorn3D

“It is a fantastic chip and has put a huge challenge to the NVIDIA’s 680i chipset, which also offers some great overclocking results and excellent features. Although, the top of the line Intel’s upcoming X38 (the chipset maybe released by the time you read this review), most users may not wish to spend that insane amount of money on a motherboard while they can get a similar performance at much cheaper price.”

ASUS Maximus Extreme Preview

ASUS Maximus Extreme Preview @ TweakTown

“There will be two different Maximus board in the R.O.G. family, the Extreme which we’re looking at here and the Formula. Asus has already done this kind of thing once before with its P35 R.O.G. boards, the Blitz Extreme and the Blitz Formula.”

Gigabyte GA-P31-DS3L

Gigabyte GA-P31-DS3L @ Virtual Hideout

“Intel has two chipsets in the P3x family, the Intel P35 Express and the P31 Express. The P35 Express is designed for higher performance platforms, with support for DDR2 or DDR3 memory and the ICH9 series Southbridge. The P31 being tailored for budget systems, only supports DDR2 memory and features Intel’s older ICH7 series Southbridge.”
