In what seems to be an ever expanding market, we've got yet another look at a new Small Form Factor system on HotHardware.  This time the system comes to us by way of Foxconn.  The same company that's been putting their stamp on motherboards and other OEM hardware since 1991.  Following their recent successful foray into the retail market with their own branded motherboards, Foxconn has a new offering pulling together their motherboard architecture skills with their flair for PC enclosures.  The results, as you will see, appear to be right on target. Foxconn's initial entry is called the e-bot, which arrived on our doorstop in a bright orange and blue box, similar to... Read more...
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,...

I just got around to reading the recent news about Abit that Jeff has posted... very interesting. On the lighter side of things, we have some motherboard reviews, a digital camcorder review, plus a few other reviews that might help you decide what to get for the holiday. Foxconn 925A01-8EKRS2 and Foxconn 915A01-8EKRS2 Mainboards Review @ X-bit labs "This review is our first introduction to Foxconn products. This company is a well-known mainboard and components contract manufacturer and this year they are entering the retail market. We took a really close look at two products from this manufacturer designed for Intel LGA775 platform." JVC Everio GZ-MC200 Digital Camcorder Review @ I4U... Read more...
Good morning gang, it's time for the morning news update at HH. It's been a hardware week that I would soon like to forget. I just wrapped up building my first HTPC, nothing crazy, just wanted to do it. Of course, nothing could go smoothly and it took close to a day to get things working right. Then, not a week goes by and the hard drive decides to die, so it's back to reinstalling. Thankfully the second time around went well and now things have settled down nicely. Along with lots of TV and moview watching, I got to catch the latest Red vs Blue on a full screen. If you haven't checked these guys out yet, you should. Pretty funny skits with a Halo theme. Foxconn 755FXK8AA-8EKRS Review @ ClubOC.net:... Read more...
Good afternoon HotHardware fans!  Just in case you missed the new link at the top of the page, I'm here to let you know that we've just posted a three i915P motherboard round-up.  We've looked at the Abit AG8, Asus P5GD2 Premium, and Foxconn's 915A01-P.  Click here and check them out......

Some of us love lusting after the finer things in life: a Mercedes-Benz SLR, Akoya pearls, Beluga caviar, and Clos du Mesnil champagne. While Intel's 925X chipset doesn't exactly fit in with those other high-end luxuries, it does happen to sit atop a long list of distinguished core logic products, offering the latest in technology and a fair dose of performance (even if it doesn't fly above and beyond the 875P it replaces). Unfortunately, when it comes time to pay the bills, reality is more along the lines of a Honda Civic, McDonald's, a six pack (if you're old enough), and Ritz crackers. If you're finding the latest round of 925X motherboards (characterized by Gigabyte's GA-8ANXP-D, a nearly... Read more...
Good Evening Folks!  BW here checking in to let you all know that we've just posted a review of Foxconn's i925X based motherboard for LGA775 Pentium 4 processors, the 925A01-8EKRS2. The 925A01-8EKRS2 is a feature-rich motherboard that takes full advantage of all of the i925X chipset's inherent capabilities including Gigabit Ethernet, Intel 7.1 channel High-Definition audio, SATA RAID, PCI Express and more. It's also priced fairly aggressively and turned out to be a respectable overclocker. Click here and check it out!... Read more...
It has been about eight weeks since Intel officially launched their i925X (Alderwood) and i915 (Grantsdale) chipsets, and their new LGA775 "pinless" Pentium 4 processors.  Since the launch, we've taken a look at two i925X based motherboards from Abit and Asus (seen here), and we had tested Intel's own D925XCV motherboard in our launch article.  These three motherboards all worked well, and offered their own somewhat unique take on the i925X.  Intel's board made for a good reference platform, Abit's AA8 DuraMAX was a competitively priced, overclocker friendly board, and the Asus P5AD2 Premium was chock-full of technological "bells and whistles".  Today,...

Good morning all.  It's that time again where we bring you some morning news from the PC hardware world.  The weekend is fast approaching, so let's get to it and then let the relaxing begin! Foxconn 755A01-6EKRS Athlon64 Motherboard (SiS 755) review @ hardCOREware.net: "If you have owned a computer in the past 23 years, I can virtually guarantee that you have used at least one Foxconn product at some point in time. It may have been an IDE cable, USB plug, or the socket you plug your memory into on a motherboard. For most of their history, Foxconn has stuck to producing parts sold directly to motherboard and other component manufacturers." AMDZone took some time to play with... Read more...
Good morning friends, how are we doing this AM?  My world was fairly mundane last night; I just kicked back with some tunes and a good book.  However, judging by the amount of news in my in-box it looks like others were quite busy... Logisys Computer SP 6000 "Alien" Speakers @ System Cooling "As the home computer market has expanded, the role of audio has come to the forefront for a lot of computer users. Games are becoming more sonically sophisticated, and many people use their systems for watching DVD's or listening to music via CD or digital formats such as MP3. Soundcards, as well as audio solutions built into many of today's motherboards, keep getting better and... Read more...
Good Evening HotHardware Fans!  Just in case you missed it, we've just posted a new review of Foxconn's 755A01-6EKRS - a SiS755 powered, Socket 754 motherboard for the Athlon 64.  You can click the picture at the top of the page, or save a few seconds and click this link... We've also got some fresh news for you as well...  NVIDIA LAUNCHES PERSONAL CINEMA FX 5700 SERIES: SANTA CLARA, CA—MAY 11, 2004—NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the worldwide leader in visual processing solutions, today announced that NVIDIA Personal Cinema FX 5700 series is now shipping.

Foxconn is a relative newcomer to the commercial motherboard market, but they are no stranger to the industry.  Like we reported when we reviewed the Foxconn 875A02, they have been producing computer parts for quite a long time, but mostly as a component maker for different OEMs.  With the manufacturing facilities already in place, it was a logical progression to move directly into the retail channel and reap some of the monetary benefits of selling components under their own brand name. Our first experience with Foxconn was with the above mentioned board based on Intel's proven i875 "Canterwood" chipset.  This time around we take a look at another of Foxconn's creations...

Good morning everyone, I hope you survived the weekend.  Mine was pretty quite for a change, I just kicked around the house with the little lady.  However, next weekend is going to be a different story; between my GF's birthday and Mothers Day (yes, mothers day is this upcoming Sunday) I am going to be pretty strapped for time.  Now, only if I could figure out what to get them :(  Nevertheless, it is getting late so lets open up the mail sack and see what we can find... ATI All-In-Wonder 9600 XT @ Viper Lair "If you already have the AIW 9600 Pro, this isn't an essential upgrade. If you're in the market for a gaming/multimedia card, I would still lean towards the AIW 9600... Read more...
Foxconn's 875A02-6EKRS Motherboard A New Motherboard From a Not-So-Familiar Face By: Jeff Bouton April 5, 2004 While computer enthusiasts may not have Foxconn on their "short list" of favorite motherboard brands, chances are they have some Foxconn parts in their rig and just don't know it.  For several years, Foxconn has been a driving force in the computer industry, manufacturing a wide range of computer components for various OEM's, including motherboards, computer cases and electronic connectors.  And while they may not be as well known as some other manufacturers, there is a good chance you have...
