ASRock treats fans with B150M Combo-G3 motherboard

Intel has never had cheap high-end (or even mid-range) processors and the arrival of Skylake has not changed this phenomenon. In fact the upgrade to Skylake may cause more pain to you since in the majority of cases the new chip will have to be equipped with DDR4 memory and this means you will have to spend more cash to enjoy the latest Intel architecture.

Now all of this has changed – ASRock, which we know thinks of ordinary users, has announced the new B150M Combo-G3 motherboard, whose main goal is to make your upgrade to Skylake as painless as possible. The board, as its name suggests, is based on the Intel B150 chipset and has support for all current Skylake processors. Moreover the B150M Combo-G3 comes with two DDR3 and two DDR4 memory slots for up to 16 GB and 32 GB of memory, respectively, which means you will be able to use your DDR3 memory with the new build. The board is a micro-ATX solution, which allows it to fit in virtually any PC case and this is a plus too. It gets its power from a combination of 24-pin ATX and 8-pin EPS power connectors and there’s a simple 7-phase VRM for the CPU as well.

In regards to connectivity, the B150M Combo-G3 has one PCI-E 3.0 x16 slot, one PCI-E 3.0 x16 (electrical x4) slot and another PCI-E 3.0 x1 slot. There are also one SATA-Express 16 Gb/sec connector and six SATA 3.0 ports. In the back you will find a 6-channeled audio chip, six USB 3.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, a PS/2 combo port, and finally HDMI, D-Sub and DVI ports.

The new B150M Combo-G3 by ASRock is expected to sell for around USD 80, which is a great price given what the board offers.
