Fatal1ty branded products tend to be much more expensive than ones that do not bear his name.  The new RX700 Universal abit F-190HD motherboard is a huge exception, offering many features including onboard HDMI.  A great all in one solution for all but the hardcore gamer, as motherboards.org points out the integrated ATI Radeon Xpress 1250 does not support Pixel Shader 3.0 or 4.0.

You got Intel on my AMD!

Subject: Motherboards | April 2, 2007 - 06:39 PM |

The DFI LANParty UT ICFX3200 is first AMD RD600 based motherboard around, and it is for Core 2 Duos!  Strange as it sounds, this is an AMD chipset running an Intel processor and it does it fairly well.  It offers 3 PCI3 16x slots, allowing Crossfire and a PPU to run at the same time.  The major downfall is the lack of overclocking ability, but it is a solid performer with a lot of other good features.

Trimming the fat, but leaving the meat

Drop by motherboards.org for another look at the newly released 680i LT based motherboard from EVGA.  It is a good implementation of simplicity, offering a solid board with great overclocking potential.  Even for those who don't want to delve into the intricacies of OCing can get good results, Doc managed 14% with the bundled nTune software.

Watering down the nForce 680i SLI

Subject: Motherboards | March 27, 2007 - 01:57 PM |

The new motherboard chipset from nVidia, the 680i LT is not really a new chipset.  It is even reported as a 680i SLI, no LT in CPU-Z.  Trimmed off are the second onboard NIC, 2 USB ports, and the BIOS going to 1200MHz for EPP automatically, though it can certainly reach that manually.  However, this trimming did allow them to reduce the price to around $200, significantly lower than the price of a Striker Extreme.  Learn more about the capabilities of this board at The Tech Report.


MSI's quiet Platinum motherboard

Subject: Motherboards | March 23, 2007 - 04:17 PM |

MSI's P6N SLI Platinum incorporates some nice features into a fairly inexpensive board.   With solid state capacitors, there is little chance of a leak, the supported 8GB of RAM helps this board run Vista, and it supports a FSB of up to 1333MHz, which gives it some future proofing.  Gigabit NIC, 2 Firewire ports and a 7.1 HD onboard audio by Azalia round out those features.  4 3GB/s SATA channels, 2 IDE channels and an eSATA port on the back give you plenty of ch

Too much of a bling thing?

Subject: Motherboards | March 20, 2007 - 12:07 PM |

On one hand you have the full featured ASUS Striker Extreme, with blinking LEDs and LCDs, more features than you can shake a stick at and heat pipes running every which way.  On the other hand is the ASUS P5N-E SLI, without the fancy add-ons and the same solid chipset at less than 1/2 the price.

DigiTimes now has Part 1 and Part 2 of their look at the upcoming chipset family from Intel, Bearlake.  In Part 1 they look at the main chipset, the P35 which supports DDR3 memory up to 1333MHz and will be the chipset for the soon to appear 45nm CPUs, Wolfdale (C2D) and Yorkfield who will be the quad core version.  In part 2 they look at the G33, similar to the P35 but with DX9 onboard graphics, the X38 which will replace the

The M2N32-SLI Premium has everything but a kitchen sink

Subject: Motherboards | March 13, 2007 - 11:14 AM |

Motherboards.org has posted their review of the M2N32-SLI Premium Vista Edition, and the only bad thing they can say about it is that it doesn't support CrossFire, as it's an nForce board.  It comes with more extras than any board on the market, including a flash drive that you can use to set up Vista's ReadyBoost.  Head over to see all the o
