CeBIT 2007. ASRock And abit

At CeBIT 2007 ASRock and abit showcase a number of interesting novelties.

ASRock's motherboards base primarily on AMD's core logic. The 4Core1333-DVI/H supports Intel Core 2 Extreme, Core 2 Duo, Pentium XE, Pentium D, Pentium 4, Celeron D processors and bases on ATI Radeon Xpress 1250 (an analog of AMD 690G for Intel) + ATI SB600. The board supports 1333 MHz FSB, features DVI-D (HDCP) and VGA interfaces, PCI Express x16 slot, Asymmetric Physics slot. The latter enables to add physics accelerator to graphics subsystem. Finally, there's an 8-channel HDA codec, 4 x SATA II (RAID) and a Gigabit Ethernet controller.

The ALiveA690G-DVI/H AM2 supports AMD Athlon 64FX, Athlon 64 X2, Athlon 64, Sempron processors and bases on the AMD 690G + ATI SB600 core logic. Both boards are similar, but our reporter believes the ALiveA690G-DVI/H will be cheaper. By the way, this board obtained the AMD Live! Ready certificate.

abit also expands its motherboard series with AMD-based novelties, but unlike ASRock products these are based on NVIDIA chipsets. The higher-end AN-M2HD on nForce 7050 features FireWire, HDMI, VGA, S-Video interfaces.

The junior AN-M2 on nForce 7025 lacks FireWire and has DVI instead of HDMI. These boards will be shipping in April-May.
