Motherboards

Abit NF-M2 nView

A few months back we had looked at the Abit AW9D i975X motherboard, which was one of the first motherboards to come out of the Universal Abit camp. We had found this Intel flagship motherboard to be very competitive and offer a great deal of features even though it was not able to pack the equivalent punch of the legendary IC7-MAX3 or NF7-S v2.0. What we have on the table to look at today is the Abit NF-M2 nView. The NF-M2 nView is an AM2 motherboard that is powered by the NVIDIA GeForce 6150 with nForce 430 that offers both onboard DVI and VGA support along with 7.1 channel HD audio, Abit Silent OTES, and IEEE-1394a Firewire.

ASRock 775Dual-VSTA

Fedora Core 6 is one of the first Linux distributions that works almost out-of-the-box with the ASRock 775Dual-VSTA, so with that said we are back here today looking at the performance of this budget Intel motherboard.

Tyan Tempest i5000XT S2696

Last month Intel Corporation had announced their Kentsfield and Clovertown processors. The Intel Core 2 Extreme Quad QX6700 was the first processor (and only one at this time) based upon the quad-core Kentsfield. Meanwhile Intel had introduced the Clovertown Xeon 5300 series at Super Computing 2006. With the two Clovertown quad-core processors in hand, we had delivered our launch-day preview back on November 14. The motherboard we had used for those tests, as well as to test the Xeon 5000 and 5100 series, was the Tyan Tempest i5000XT S2696. Now having spent nearly a month with this flagship motherboard we have a few thoughts to share about this Xeon creation.

Abit AW9D i975X

Abit's AW8 and AW8-MAX were exceptionally well-designed i955X motherboards, and Abit's latest attempt at a high-performance Intel LGA-775 solution is the AW9D series. We have the Abit AW9D on our test bench, which is backed by Intel's flagship 975X processor and boasts an arsenal of innovative features. But how does this product perform under GNU/Linux? We have all of the performance metrics to share today.

ASRock 775Dual-VSTA & AM2V890-VSTA

ASRock's latest motherboard series is the VSTA, which consist of budget motherboards designed for compatibility with Microsoft Windows Vista. However, we have taken a look at the 775Dual-VSTA and AM2V890-VSTA motherboards. Today we have up our preview of these two solutions.

Tyan Tempest i5000VF & i5000VS

After the success of the Tyan i5000XL S2692, we did not let this tempest adventure stop us so soon. Up on the bench today we have the Tyan Tempest i5000VF and i5000VS. We pair these motherboards up with Intel's Woodcrest processors and give them a run for their money. For those interested in the Intel Bensley Platform, this is certainly not an article to miss.

Abit KN9 Ultra

The Abit KN9 Ultra is backed by the NVIDIA MCP55 Ultra and supports IEEE-1394a, Dual Gigabit LAN, and all of the other Abit extras we are delighted to see back. The KN9 Ultra certainly looks like it may stack up well on paper, but let's see if Abit has truly returned to their famed past set by such motherboards as the NF7-S and IC7-MAX3.

Tyan Tiger K9HE S3970 Preview

While AMD will not officially announce Socket F LGA-1207 with their next-generation Opteron processors for a few more days, we have managed to acquire one of the retail motherboards for this upcoming platform. The Tiger K9HE S3970 (as Tyan will officially call it) supports two AMD Opteron 2000 series processors, ECC Registered DDR2, and more. The Chipset backing this motherboard is the ServerWorks BCM5785 from Broadcom.

Tyan Tempest i5000XL S2692

Since publishing our preview of the Tyan Tempest i5000XL last month, we have received an overwhelming amount of messages from Phoronix readers who have been intrigued by Tyan's joint project with Intel on the Tempest series as well as the Toledo and Tank. While the various Tyan Tempest boards still seem to be in limited quantities, we are back again today with our performance figures for the Tyan i5000XL as well as taking a further look at its GNU/Linux compatibility.
