Elitegroup Computer Systems, Inc. (ECS) will reveal their first Intel Bearlake-based motherboards at CeBIT 2007.
The new P35T-A, G33T-M and Q35T-M motherboards feature the next generation chipsets and will be continued by the current P965, G965 and Q965 Broadwater-based motherboards, promising across-the-board performance benefits. All these new motherboard chipsets are validated to perform with the latest Intel Core 2 Duo and Intel Core 2 Quad processors. The P35T-A is designed for gaming and performance users, the G33T-M and its integrated graphics core is designed for the digital home and the Q35T-M brings more functionality to enterprise and office users.
Several factors give these next generation ECS Bearlake motherboards their improved performance. The Northbridge chipset supports a 45nm-process microarchitecture CPU, which greatly boosts performance and efficiency. These chipsets feature a 1333 MHz Front Side Bus (FSB), DDR3 memory and work seamlessly with Intel?s new ICH9 Southbridge I/O chip. The ICH9 Southbridge will have at least three different versions, a standard ICH9, the ICH9R with added support for RAID storage, and the ICH9DH designed specially for digital home applications. The ICH9 also offers a useful new feature called 'Intel Robson Technology', which is claimed to improve system responsiveness while saving power and also allows users to boot and quickly system recover.
The P35T-A motherboard supports Intel Core 2 Extreme Quad-Core processors and provides PCI Express X16 slots (X16, X4) with dual graphics solutions. New Intel Matrix Storage Technology is featured for better content protection and performance, as well as Intel?s Advance Memory Controller with Intel Fast Memory Access to better manage the DDR3 memory up to 1333MHz. The G33T-M supports Intel Core2 Duo CPUs with up to 1333MHz FSB and Core 2 Quad up to 1066MHz FSB. It provides advanced high-definition video playback (Intel CVT) and Intel Quiet System Technology. Its lower TDP allows for slimmer and smaller cases typical of digital home applications. The Q35T-M provides leading embedded security and manageability geared for business platforms. A great enterprise solution the Q35T-m is based on Intel?s vPro technology to better manage workstation PCs remotely and a stable graphics solution makes it ready for Microsoft Windows Vista Premium.
ECS will showcases these products at Hall 21, Booth C07 at CeBIT 2007.
