Elitegroup Computer Systems Inc. (ECS), is set to unveil its latest Motherboard series at this year's Computex exhibition.
The new series from ECS which includes the new P35T-A and G33T-M motherboards is based on Intel's new Bearlake technology.
The new ECS G33T-M motherboard has been designed to satisfy the demands of the digital home user. It features a lower TDP to ensure slimmer and smaller form factors typical to Digital Home design and includes Intel Quiet System Technology providing a quieter solution for the home.
The new G33T-M supports; Intel Core2 Duo CPUs with up to 1333MHz FSB and Core 2 Quad up to 1066MHz FSB, and Dual Channel DDR2 memory up to 8GB via 4 x DIMMs.
The G33T-M supports 8-channel high
definition audio output and high-definition video playback for next generation HD applications. It incorporates Intel GMA 3100 graphics but a PCI Express slot also provides the flexibility to accommodate an additional graphics card.
Other connectivity options include 4x USB 2.0, 1x D-Sub,
1x PS2, 1x Serial, 1x IEEE1394a, 1x RJ45 LAN, 1x Audio Output, 1 x PCI Express (x16) slot, 1 x PCI Express (x1) slot and 2 x PCI slots.
The P35T-A motherboard supports Intel Core 2
Duo and IntelR CoreT2 Extreme Quad-Core processors for MEGA tasking, supports Intel ViiV Technology and up to 8GB Dual Channel DDR2 Memory with advanced overclocking features.
It provides 2x PCI Express X16 slots (X16, X4) supporting ATI's CrossFire, which unites multi GPU power and 8-channel high definition audio.
The new P35T-A also features UEIO Technology
(Ultra Expandable I/O Technology) conveniently supporting 6x USB 2.0 ports.
It also features 1x eSATA port with the latest eSATA technology. Other connections include; 2 x
PCI Express x16 slots (1 x16, 1 x4), 1 x PCI Express x1 slot, 3 x PCI slots, 1x PS2, 1x Serial, 2x IEEE1394a, 1x RJ45 LAN and 1x Audio Output.
Bearlake motherboards have improved performance and efficiency thanks to the Northbridge chipset they feature. The only chipset supporting the forthcoming 45nm-process microarchitecture CPU, the Northbridge chipset
ensures that users are future proofed for future technology upgrades. These chipsets feature a 1333 MHz Front Side Bus (FSB) to work seamlessly with Intel's new ICH9 Southbridge I/O chip. The ICH9 Southbridge will have at least three different versions, the ICH9R with added support for RAID
storage, the ICH9DH which supports an additional 2 SATA ports and the ICH9 which will offer a useful new feature called 'IntelR Robson Technology', which improves system responsiveness while saving power and also
allows users to boot and quickly system recover. The Bearlake chipset also allows support for DDR3 Memory.
Computex is held in Taipei June 5th - June 9th, 2007.
