Photo of the day: ASRock K8 Combo-Z and K8 Upgrade-760GX in our lab
We are now testing two motherboards from ASRock: K8 Combo-Z and K8 Upgrade-760GX. Each is unique in its own way: the former has two CPU sockets, while the latter has expansion slot for Socket 939 adapter.
So, K8 Combo-Z, based on ALi M1689, has 754 and 939 sockets thus supporting AMD Athlon 64 and 32-bit Sempron processors. It´s interesting how memory subsystem is designed: Socket 939 CPUs are offered 3 sockets for DDR400/333/266 SDRAM DIMM, up to 2GB, and Socket 754 processors have can use 2 sockets for DDR400/333/266 SDRAM DIMM, up to 2GB as well. The board features 2 x IDE channels (ATA133/UDMA6) for up to 4 devices, 2 x SATA, 8ch audio codec, 3 x PCI (2.2), 1 x AGP, up to 8 x USB ports. On the back panel there are PS/2 keyboard and mouse connectors, 1 x COM, 1 LPT, 4 x USB 2.0, LAN (10/100Mbps), audio interfaces.
K8 Upgrade-760GX µATX board has Socket 754 for AMD Athlon 64 and 32-bit Sempron processors. It bases on SiS760GX + SiS964 chipset, has two sockets for DDR400/333/266 SDRAM, up to 2GB as well as 2 x IDE channels (ATA133/UDMA6) for up to 4 devices, 2 x SATA, 6ch AC´97 codec, Mirage2 integrated graphics, 2 x PCI (2.1), 1 x AGP slots, up to 8 x USB ports. On the back panel: PS/2 keyboard and mouse, 1 x VGA, 1 x LPT, 6 x USB 2.0, LAN (10/100Mbps), audio connectors. Pity, but the package we obtained didn´t contain the Socket 939 adapter board.
