Asrock releases Gen3 motherboard

Written by Nick Farell


Ivy Bridge support
Asrock have unveiled its new Gen3 line of motherboards, which offers Ivy Bridge support as well as a number of features suggested by pro-gamer Johnathan ‘Fatal1ty’ Wendel.

Asrock claims it is leading the market with a number of features including support for Intel’s forthcoming Ivy Bridge chipset and PCIe 3.0 architecture. Many of the additional features such as PCIe 3.0, which offers higher bit rates, bandwidth and frequency, won’t work with any chip other than Ivy Bridge so if you shove a Sandy Bridge processor into it you can only use PCIe 2.0.

It will also support Nvidia NF200 chips, which allow for three-way SLI, XFast LAN data streaming prioritisation support. It also allows Fatal1ty mouseport, which allows the user to overclock their mouse. We can't see us needing that in the near future either.
