It must be insufficient for modern video cards? The set of proprietary utilities includes: Variety of overclocking functions in BIOS seems complete. The impression was spoilt by operating instability. Lots of users go to shop for a video card “supporting DirectX 9. It does not mean, of course, that assembling a gaming computer now, you should consider motherboards with a cut-down graphics bus fortunately, the choice and prices of motherboards with sterling PCI Express x16 are more than acceptable. Anyway, test results are somewhat disappointing.

What concerns motherboards from Foxconn, being good in design and implementation, they are still less attractive than competing products as a fault of irritating BIOS bugs.

In practice, we are to find out whether CPU overclocking will be limited by a motherboard as well as to evaluate its behavior in non-standard modes, including automatic restoration of a correct frequency after a failed overclocking attempt, etc. I have an impression that motherboard manufacturers can do without heatsinks for these models. In the latter case, the difference just must be – that’s where the video card “sits” on a single PCI Express lane.

As is well known, peak load on a graphical interface during a game appears when textures are uploaded for frame rendering. Nevertheless, we hasn’t found out what will stop Vista from running on a computer with a motherboard without V. It’s definitely an absolute champion in this parameter on the market of desktop chipsets.

As these are almost the cheapest motherboards from Foxconn, they do not belong to the group of products for enthusiasts, we can only conjecture the reasons why engineers decided to offer so many functions. What concerns overclocking, successful attempts are rare for motherboards of this class. We are going to evaluate how “defective” this radical reduction of PCI Express lanes is from the foxcnn of view of gaming performance.


They appear only when you try to get most of your BIOS settings. Otherwise, we analyze their efficiency as well.

Memory voltage regulator is reinforced with L elements. As overclocking potential is an individual property of a given motherboard sample to some degree, we don’t set foxcojn task to determine overclocking potential to within a single MHz. It even goes down at least for systems with a single video card. We successfully installed this operating system.

It uses OST capacitors. To all appearances, it’s not installed very well, as we have already met this codec in motherboards, where it demonstrated a tad higher results. You will hardly want to build a good audio system with this integrated solution. The letter V stands mc6p1sm2ma the official certificate of compatibility with Windows Vista Premium. The only drawback is memory slot latches blocked by a video card.

They ponder whether they will have to create individual designs for each modification. Overclocking In order to evaluate motherboard and its BIOS, we overclock our testbed processor to a maximum stable level.

We also failed to reduce the rotational speed of CPU and system fans using Tiger One, which comes shipped with this motherboard. We use all features of the motherboard in this test, including rasing CPU voltage and adjusting multipliers and frequencies of system and peripheral buses, if necessary but if, for example, reducing Hyper-Transport frequency does not improve overclocking, we leave the default multiplier.


Aware of this peculiarity, we tested the second motherboard more thoroughly and repeated overclocking three times. One of them indeed accepts any video card, and seems to work as any sterling PCI Express x But the current tendency implies increasingly complex shader computations, which may turn even the most powerful processors which determine the resulting fps level into a bottleneck in high resolutions.

Performance analysis of motherboards is rarely interesting these days. It makes it inexpedient to produce low-end pin-compatible models with sterling chips and some functions locked on the logical level. Thus, chances for a lag are higher for a video card with less memory in case of registering average as well as minimal fps. It’s all the more expedient, considering that video memory size in system requirements of games is often a determining factor.

Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method. But it’s much more convenient to have a minimal number of modifications in the economic segment to be manufactured on a mass scale.

According to the official web site, motherboards come in two bundles. BioShock Infinite and Metro: Consumed Power, Energy Consumption:
