As for now, we offer a traditional express-comparison of results demonstrated by this and other models of the same class. It expands its wide range of products, whenever the opportunity occurs. Foxconn include a decent software bundle here; with a full copy of Norton Internet Security among the titles.

In this case we decided to limit ourselves to publishing the results of a single motherboard on a different chipset SiSas the performance of AMD64 solutions does not depend on a chipset to be more exact, only periphery’s and probably video card’s performance depends on it.
There is a load menu function, which allows to choose a boot device to startup a system without modifying BIOS Setup. The PCB layout is simple fortunately, there are practically no additional controllers. The high heatsink on the northbridge may be an obstacle to install a video card with a bulky heatsink at the back side.
Though the motherboard under 615k8ma with the current BIOS version does not allow to set DRAM Timing, which is so important for performance, it was automatically set to 1T in our tests; detailed information on the memory mode is displayed at startup. The 3-phase switching voltage regulator of the processor incorporates three field-effect transistors per channel, five uF capacitors, four uF ones, and several ones of lesser capacitance.
All the bracket headers are at the bottom of the motherboard, which helps keep things tidy. Both the nVidia GeForce chipset and nForce Southbridge are cooled with silent passive aluminum heatsinks.
Other manufacturers are already doing this, and it really does same DIY’ers time and headaches. Current chipsets featuring integrated 6150k8ms are loaded with features but lack performance especially when it comes to 3D games.
Proprietary technologies and peculiarities SuperBoot — PC boot acceleration: On the flip side, consumers looking to build a budget 8ekrw machine can save a bit of money with a good integrated video motherboard, which precludes the need to buy a standalone videocard right off the bat.
It unveiled two models based on modifications of chipset combinations, promising to become very popular: There are three 32 bit PCI slots for other expansion peripherals, such as a wireless network card or TV tuner.
Foxconn WinFast K8MA-8EKRS Motherboard Review –
The only jumper is placed in an ideal location, 8ekts to it is not hampered even when a motherboard is installed into a 6150k8m PC case.
But even though this model uses the top chipset in the series, it still has some empty seats on the PCB — BIOS write protection jumper it’s not soldered in all models of the current revision and an additional audio-in AUX-In.
In terms of goodies, the motherboard incorporates onboard analog video, a 7. The particular board we tested did not come with a user’s manual, which is a bit surprising, however there is one included on the driver CD.
Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: It’s practically excellent for a microATX motherboard. Integrated video; it’s an area where AMD has not had a presence since the dawn of the Athlon 64 processor, and unfortunately it is also one of the largest markets. Beginners Guides Cases and Access. This model on the manufacturer’s web site Russian mirror The motherboard is kindly provided by the manufacturer Sergei Pikalov peek ixbt.
In general, critical circuits incorporate electrolytic capacitors from OST we are not very enthusiastic about it and United Chemi-Con.
Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method. With the release of the nVIDIA’s GeForce series chipsets, enthusiasts now have a high powered integrated option that does not well There has been a lot of focus on motherboard capacitors in the last year, so we make a point of listing the brands used on the boards we test.

On the whole, motherboard functionality is on a high for a presumably budget model level. BioShock Infinite and Metro: Foxconn SuperUtilites package is a typical set of utilities: Doom 3 and Conclusion.
The models are practically no different, except for their chipsets and the resulting functionalitythey use the same PCB with the same peculiarities, and even the same BIOS version: A standalone graphics card can also be installed in the single PCI Express x16 slot if desired. If you watch movies mainly on your monitor, you can still enjoy the benefits of the GeForce ‘s HD accelerator there.
Noise level, dB A: Video 3Digests 6150k8na cards: As the graphics slot is too close to memory slots, an installed video card may hamper your manipulations with memory modules.
Dynamic range, dB A: It’s very strange that HDA support, which finally found its way to NVIDIA chipsets, is not included in this motherboard, which is intended for a home multimedia center! The board also contains a voltage regulator for memory consisting of several uF capacitors.
It supports audio output to 8 speakers, but there is no bit audio support and other advantages of High Definition Audio. SuperStep to overclock and monitor system parametersSuperLogo to change the graphic logo at startup8elrs SuperUpdate to search for the latest BIOS version via Internet and to flash the loaded image.
