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’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.”


MSI P6N SLI @ Digit-Life

“This motherboard is a classic example of a plain ATX product. While it doesn’t have top notch “goodies” like an integrated Wi-Fi adapter, two Gigabit Ethernet ports, or a bunch of SATA RAID ports, it can still serve as a good foundation for a powerful and rich computer system.”


ECS G31T-M @ Guru3D

“What most of you probably do not know is that ECS Elitegroup is one of the largest players in the OEM industry for mainboards. Since a year or two they are trying to slip into the retail market though. They have a keen focus on the budget minded as for good performance you really don’t need to spend 200 bucks on a mainboard.”
