Sneak Peak of the ECS P67H2-A Black Extreme
Today we have a special treat for you! Maybe we can consider it an early Christmas present. Since it has been rumored that the new Sandy Bridge platform from Intel is coming soon, we are going to start showing off some of the Intel P67 motherboards. While we aren’t able to give you any details on performance of the new platform, we can give you a sneak peak at some of the up and coming Sandy Bridge Motherboards! The new Socket 1155 motherboard that we are going to look at today is the ECS P67H2-A Black Extreme. Today will cover some of the key features of the ECS P67H2-A. The ECS P67H2-A Black Extreme takes advantage of the new P67 chipset from Intel, and utilizes the new LGA1155 socket as well as the new 2nd generation of Core processors from Intel!
One of the key features of the ECS P67H2-A Black Extreme Sandy Bridge motherboard that will separate it from the competition is the Hydra Core. What is that you may ask, well in short, it allows you to run different graphics cards from different manufacturers. By that I don’t mean an AMD Radeon HD 5870 from XFX and one from Sapphire. What I mean is the core manufacturers, AMD and NVIDIA. Ultimately we will be able to run a combination like the ATI Radeon HD 5870 and a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 in parallel for improved performance. If you are curious about how this is accomplished, it is done using the Lucid HydraLogix 200 processor.
Other features prevalent on the ECS P67H2-A Black Extreme include but are not limited to:
- Six Super Speed USB3 ports
- Turbo Boost 2.0
- Support for Unlocked Intel CPU’s
- Dual Gigabit Lan with Teaming
