ECS PF5 Extreme

ECS Elitegroup has been in the motherboard business since 1987, and their design quality certainly shows with their PF5 Extreme. The ECS PF5 Extreme packs in dual PCI Express slots, dual LAN interfaces, ECSonic II, and a wealth of other exclusives with this Socket LGA-775 solution, which is powered by Intel's 945 Chipset. However, just how well will it fair against alternative Glenwood and Lakeport products? Today we have the ECS PF5 Extreme today to look at how well this multi-colored solution performs.

DFI Infinity NF4 Ultra

It has been quite a while since we last featured a DFI, or rather Design For Innovation, motherboard at Phoronix but today we are back again with them as we feature one of their products from the Infinity series -- the DFI NF4 Ultra. As the model name implies, the Chipset used is NVIDIA's nForce4 Ultra and it also features a Vitesse Gigabit interface, four DDR-400 slots, and the usual innovations we have become to appreciate from DFI thanks to their LAN Party series.

The latest Tyan motherboard to have entered the Phoronix facilities was the K8E-SLI S2866, which was a Socket 939 solution with an nForce Professional 2200 Chipset.

PC Partner RC410MS7-A82C

PC Partner is a relative new comer to Phoronix but they have over 20 years experience in the industry with ISO9001 certification. PC Partner's focus is on providing graphics and motherboard solutions to the PC industry as well as offering OEM/ODM products. Hitting the bench today is PC Partner's RC410MS7-A82C, which is based upon the ATI RC410 + SB450 Chipset. However, do not put this item on your shopping list, as we share in the article, the retail motherboard will NOT be available for purchase by the general public due to recent corporate changes.

ASRock's latest Socket 939 offering, the 939Dual-SATA2, not only offers support for AMD's future M2 socket but it also incorporates some overclocking abilities that enthusiasts would have only dreamed about appearing on a budget motherboard. But just how well does it fair in the penguin trials?

Abit AW8 BIOS v15

A new BIOS for the AW8 series has hit the Internet from the folks over at Abit and implemented in this latest revision is support for Intel's Presler and Cedar Mill processors among other notable improvements, while one of the major advancements is the belated support for DDR2-800. This DDR2-800 (1:2 CPU:DRAM) ability comes after some enthusiasts have accused Abit of blatant advertising attempts with its memory.

Tyan Tomcat K8E-SLI S2866

Based upon the K8E S2865, the K8E-SLI S2866 is Tyan's initial offering when it comes to NVIDIA Socket 939 SLI on the nForce PRO 2200 Chipset. Yes, that is right an nForce Professional 2200 Chipset implementation on a Socket 939 Athlon 64 system and not the nForce4. Presently Tyan has the K8WE (S2895), which is nForce Professional based, and is capable of running in SLI with the Opteron 200 series, but the K8E-SLI is their first time venturing into this new arena. With us today we have the K8E-SLI and we shall see just how well it fares in the world of Scalable Link Interface.

ASRock 775Dual-915GL

The last time we had any ASRock products at Phoronix was a few months back when testing their 775Dual-880Pro, which was based upon the VIA PT880 Pro + 8237R Chipset. Back with us today is ASRock and we have our hands on the 775Dual-915GL, which is powered by the Intel i915GL + ICH-6 Chipset while offering some innovative features such as its exclusive AGI Express.
