ECS showed off a large array of products at their booth at Computex this year, demonstrating the range of markets they cater to, from consumer to industrial. To start with, their long lived LIVA series of mini PCs have received an update to Intel's 13th gen Core series of processors with the LIVA Z5. The LIVA Z5 lineup includes three new models: the Z5 Plus, a more spacious Z5E Plus, and a completely passive Z5F Plus. Each of these feature the new processor generation up to 15 W and are designed for smart retail and kiosk deployments. The series not only boasts the new processor generation, but also expandable DDR4-3200 with capacities up to 64 GB, M.2 PCI-E NVMe Gen 4x4 SSD storage (plus 2.5" SATA in the Z5E and Z5F), optional Wi-Fi 6 module, dual 2.5 GbE, three USB 3.2 Gen 2x1 Type-A, USB Type-C, HDMI, and COM ports. Each of these new models can support up to four simultaneous 4K displays. ECS had the Z5 and Z5E Plus running as a multi-display automated self-service kiosk in their booth where visitors could order a bubble tea. Beside these was also the new LIVA P300, a slightly larger ITX barebones machine with a Q670 motherboard supporting both 12th and 13th Gen processors on LGA 1700, up to 65 W TDP.

In the realm of consumer products ECS is moving forward with their recently launched LEET Gaming lineup of desktop motherboards. The headlining attraction is the full ATX Z790H7-A which comes loaded with I/O featuring PCI-E Gen 5 x16, PCI-E Gen 3 x1, PCI-E Gen 4 x16 (wired for x4), an impressive four M.2 PCI-E NVMe Gen 4 drive slots with RAID 0/1/5 support, as well as nine rear USB 3.2 ports and 2.5 GbE networking. ECS is pulling no punches with the power delivery aboard the Z790H7-A, with it allowing for dual 8-pin EPS12V input to an expansive 18-phase VRM. Stepping down from the flagship offering ECS showed off a more cost balanced member of the LEET Gaming lineup, the micro-ATX B760H7-M20. The much smaller board squeezes in PCI-E Gen 5 x16, a pair of PCI-E Gen 3 x1, two M.2 PCI-E Gen 4 slots for SSDs and one M.2 2230 port for WLAN/BT expansion, one USB 3.2 Gen 2x1 Type-C and two Gen 1x1 Type-A, and a 7+1 phase VRM.

Nearby on their wall of boards ECS showed off their Alder Lake-N ITX SBC offerings. These boards feature Intel's recently launched low-power chips which consist entirely of "Gracemont" cores, or as many enthusiasts know them, "E-Cores." ECS has a few flavors of these boards on offer, with the primary variant being the ADLN-I3 which presumably fits an i3-300N series processor and maxes out the tiny SoC's 9 lanes of PCI-E Gen 3 with a pair of M.2 PCI-E and a PCI-E Gen 3 x1 slot. The rest of the SBC is covered in COM headers, a single SATA II port, and a single DDR4 SODIMM slot which can support up to 16 GB of total RAM. The rear I/O is quite full with two more COM ports, HDMI, DisplayPort, VGA, dual 1GbE, four USB 3.2 Gen 2x1, two USB 2.0, and a combo PS/2 port. A passively cooled and likely even lower power variant, ADLN-I, utilizes a slightly pared down set of I/O and also features an external power input via a barrel jack.

Rounding off the end of the display ECS presented something of a departure from their usual arrangement of x86-based products with the RK3568-IS; a 3.5 inch ARM equipped SBC utilizing Rockchip's RK3568 SoC. The RK3568 is a quad-core ARM Cortex-A55 with a maximum operating clock of 2.0 GHz. ECS is surrounding this tiny SoC with up to 8 GB of DDR3 or LPDDR4X, 8 GB or 32 GB eMMC flash storage, one M.2 PCI-E slot for NVMe SSD expansion and another M.2 for WiFi 5/Bluetooth 5.0, MicroSD card slot, MIPI-CSI camera interface, four COM ports for RS232 or RS485, I2C capacitive touch interface, 1GbE RJ-45 ethernet port with an optional second port to enable multi-gig and PoE, two rear USB 3.0 and up to five USB 2.0 utilizing onboard headers.

I miss their violet pcbs and they were a pretty decent board maker, they need AM5 but i guess thats where Biostar Takes its spot...
