ASRock Readies a Pair of Z77 Fatal1ty Motherboards
ASRock is working on not one, but two motherboard models based on the Intel Z77 chipset, under its Fatal1ty Professional series. The first of the lot is a standard-ATX Z77 Fatal1ty Professional, followed by the micro-ATX Z77 Fatal1ty Professional-M. The latter is ASRock's first micro-ATX Fatal1ty motherboard. The ATX Z77 Fatal1ty Professional could go on to be ASRock's flagship Z77 motherboard. The LGA1155 socket is powered by a 20+ phase digital-PWM power circuitry, and memory by a 5-phase VRM, which make this board as much an overclockers' choice as gamers'.

is Z77 like a wimped out version of Z68? I'm confused on that, but they look nice.

LOL, I like 20+ phase digital-PWM power circuitry, and memory by a 5-phase VRM for Ocing the new Ivy Bridge CPU I'm going to buy [img]http://forums.nvidia.com/public/style_emoticons/default/yes.gif[/img] Hopefully it will be stable at 6.0GHz [img]http://forums.nvidia.com/public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif[/img] TJ

How do you figure that? Z77 looks to be superior to Z68 in quite a dew ways.

[i]I would wait for Ivy to produce results toward advancements on the 1155, moves like this seem premature. With the plethora of socket choices, Ivy is the only premise for holding out on newer renditions. Especially with the marks of 2011's gains over 1366. There just seems to be too much, too fast. [/i]

So we must hand it over to our tame PC tweaker. Some say he sticky tapes a block of uranium to his dinner before eating it and that he sucks moisture out of ducks. All we know is, he's called Hooks.

Chiphell pulled some benchmarks that showed Ivy 39% faster then SB and Kepler has swung into full production [img]http://forums.nvidia.com/public/style_emoticons/default/yes.gif[/img] The Z77 platform supped up with high end Kepler's will be top dog! YEAH!

I completely agree Hooks - too much, too fast. Then there's Haswell straight after Ivy... My little 775 is a few hundred generations old now lol

I'm holding off for Ivy (maybe even Ivy E - even longer :( ). There's just not the selection of boards out there to fully support the selection of chips.

Given what I can get out of my 2600k, I still haven't really been tempted by anything Ivy. That's not to say that won't stop me when I have some budget spare and the hardware buying bug, but it certainly isn't as tempting as normal.

If someone (perhaps ASRock at this rate) pull out a really good mATX board, I may be tempted to build a small powerhouse again. ASRock have pulled out some really good boards recently, I never really considered them so much before.
