ECS

ECS has presented a few new boards, based on the new chipsets released in the recent time. They are also "working on an NVIDIA chipset motherboard for Pentium 4".

On all those boards where you see both an AGP and a PCI-Express video card slot, ECS uses their patented technology, which allows both the AGP and PCI-Express card to work at the same time. The AGP port is implemented via a PCI-to-AGP-Bridge. No other manufacturer offers to run both AGP and PCI-E simultaneonsly, except for some VIA chipsets with have both a native AGP and PCI-E implementation in silicon.


The 756-A uses SiS' 756+965 chipset and has the following features:
  • Socket939 for AMD Athlon 64
  • FSB 200 MT/s
  • Dual DDR 400, up to 4GB
  • 10/100 MBit LAN
  • 1x PCI-E x16, 2x PCI-E x1, 1x AGP, 2x PCI, 1x CNR
  • RAID 0, 1, 0+1
  • 4x SATA
  • 8x USB 2.0

The PF21 Extreme is based on Intel'S 925XE+ICH6R chipset.
  • LGA Socket 775 for Pentium4 (EM64T ready)
  • FSB 1066 MHz
  • Dual DDR2 533, up to 4GB
  • 10/100 MBit LAN + Gigabit Lan
  • 1x PCI-E x16, 2x PCI-E x1, 3x PCI
  • RAID 0, 1, 0+1
  • 6x SATA
  • 8x USB 2.0, 2x 1394a

The PF22 Extreme has the same features as the PF21 Extreme but uses Intel's brand new high end chipset 955X + ICH7R Southbridge.


The PF5 is build around Intel's 945P chipset using the ICH7R Southbridge. Same features again.


The RS400-A uses ATI's RS400 + SB400 chipset, which features an integrated ATI video card.
  • LGA Socket 775 for Pentium 4 CPU
  • FSB 800 MHz
  • Dual DDR2 533 and DDR 400, up to 2 GB
  • 10/100 MBit LAN
  • 1x PCI-E x16, 2x PCI-E x1, 1x AGP, 2x PCI
  • RAID 0, 1
  • 4x SATA
  • 8x USB 2.0

Using ATI's latest AMD64 chipset with integrated video card, RS480, together with the SB400 Southbridge, the RS480-M has the following features:
  • FSB 2000 MT/s
  • Dual DDR 400, up to 2GB
  • 10/100 MBit LAN
  • 1x PCI-E x16, 1x PCI-E x1, 2 x PCI
  • RAID 0, 1
  • 4x SATA
  • 8x USB 2.0
Continue to Day 2.
