Good Evening Folks! Marco here to let you all know what we've just posted a new article, where we pit Foxconn's 945P7AA-8EKRS2 against Gigabyte's GA-8I945P-G. These two new i945P based motherboards for LGA775 processors offer very similar feature sets, and are ready for Intel's Dual-Core line of Pentium-D processors. Click here to see which one we liked best...... Read more...
With the Dual-Core processor push in full effect, prospective upgraders now have a whole new line of products to consider before making a purchase.  From the Intel side you have the Intel Pentium D series, which offers two non-HyperThreaded cores in a single package and the Pentium Extreme Edition with its dual-HyperThreaded cores.  While Intel's Pentium D processors do have an attractive price point, the newer CPUs require an upgraded chipset to function.  This adds to the overall cost of upgrading since most users will need a new motherboard to go along with a new dual-core CPU.  Conversely, there is the pricier AMD X2 processor line.  AMD's price point is currently...

Good evening HotHardware fans! BW here, to let you all know that I've just finished our review of Abit's innovative Fatal1ty AA8XE. This motherboard, based on the i925XE chipset for LGA775 Pentium 4 processors, has a very complete feature set and an excellent array of overclocking options. If you're in the market for a new Socket T motherboard, you owe it to yourself to check this one out. Click here for the full scoop...... Read more...
Over the years, Abit has cultivated a well deserved reputation for building some of the most overclockable, and feature rich motherboards available.  So, anytime a new core-logic chipset is released, knowledgeable enthusiasts inevitably wonder what Abit has in store.  Abit tends to incorporate features that make their motherboards stand out among the competition.  Usually they are extremely "overclocker friendly", or in some cases, Abit will innovate and try something new before most other motherboard manufactures are ready to test the waters. Abit took a bold step in 2002 with their IT7 and AT7 "MAX" motherboards, that did away with legacy serial, parallel,... Read more...
Good Afternoon Folks! This is everyone's favorite oversized Italian, dropping in to let you all know that we've just posted a new review of a feature laden i925XE based motherboard from Foxconn, the 925XE7AA-8EKRS2. Unlike some of Foxconn's previous offerings, the 925XE7AA-8EKRS2 is targeted squarely at enthusiasts and offers a host of overclocking tools and drive connectivity options.

Until Intel's next-generation chipsets arrive, with support for upcoming multi-core processors, the 925X and 925XE will remain the flagship chipsets for LGA775 based Pentium 4 processors.  The 925X and XE are very similar, as Dave pointed out in his introduction to the P4 EE 3.46GHz last October.  When we compare the 925X and 925XE, the main difference between the two is that the XE officially supports a system bus of 1066MHz versus the 925X's official peak of 800MHz.  This brings full support for the current flagship Pentium 4 Extreme Edition processor, which taps the 1066MHz bus, and potential support for future processors from Intel that will utilize this faster bus speed as...

Well folks, some of us might be getting a bit of snow tonight. I'm sure some sleet will also make it into the mix. Come on now, it's January and so far the winter has been a dud! I'm looking for a storm right now, but I'm sure I'll be less enthusiastic about the situation when I'm outside shoveling steps and salting the driveway ;) ABIT AA8 DuraMAX (Intel 925X Express) @ hardwarezone "The AA8 DuraMAX is one of ABIT's high-end boards based on the Intel 925X Express chipset. Featuring all the advanced technologies of the Alderwood plus an excellent price, find out if the 'Guru' of motherboards still has the edge."

Good afternoon all! Just in case you missed the new link at the top of the page, I'm here to let you know that we've taken a look at a motherboard powered by the SiS755FX chipset, the inexpensive Foxconn WinFast 755FXK8AA-8EKRS. With the 755FX, SiS has added support for Socket 939 Athlon 64 processors, dual-channel memory, and a 1GHz HyperTransport clock. Click here and see how she compared to a couple of nForce 3 Ultras and a K8T800 Pro...... Read more...
A few months ago, we took a look at a sampling of Athlon 64 Socket 939 motherboards, and ended up giving an Editor's Choice award to the NVIDIA nForce 3 Ultra based MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum.  At the time, the K8N Neo2 Platinum struck the best balance between features, performance, overclockability, and price.  Another motherboard tested in that round-up was also powered by the nForce 3 Ultra, and two others were based on VIA's K8T800 Pro. Since then, a few new PCI Express enabled chipsets for the Athlon 64 have sprung up, but they haven't begun shipping in any real volumes just yet.  Plus, PCI Express graphics cards are more expensive than their AGP counterparts for the most part,...

Good afternoon HotHardware fans! Just in case you missed the link at the top of the page, we wanted to let you know that we've just posted a shoot-out between two high-end i925X motherboards from the Abit and Asus, the AA8 DuraMAX and the P5AD2 Premium. These are some of the first enthusiast class boards to arrive that support Intel's new LGA775 processors. We ran quite a few benchmarks and compared them to an i875 throughout.

  Intel's recent new platform launch of the i915 and i925X chipsets marked a major overhaul of the Pentium 4 system level architecture and brought with it a host of new features and technologies.  At the processor and IO levels, the addition of DDR2 memory and the PCI Express interface significantly increased theoretical available system bandwidth. In addition, the new LGA775 socket and accompanying package for the P4 brings significantly better thermal characteristics to the newPrescottcore, which was getting to be known as a real nuclear reactor of a chip. When all was said and done, Intel had made obvious enhancements to the platform and added new features to it, such as high-definition... Read more...

Let's take a walk down memory lane, shall we?  Where were you in 1999?  If you were into the technology scene, especially personal computing, most likely you were scampering about like Chicken Little, wondering what you would do when the sky fell at the end of the year, as the clocks ticked over to the year 2000. The Y2K support and compliance industry was in full bloom, as we all thought our computers, mainframes and networks would somehow spontaneously combust due to the fact that our BIOS firmware, operating systems and application software couldn't handle the roll-over into the new millennium.  In addition to worrying about your soon too be possessed PC, if you were an...
