ASRock displays first LGA1150 boards at CeBIT 2013

ASRock – the third largest motherboard maker – has presented at CeBIT 2013 its first working LGA1150 motherboards, namely the entry-level ASRock B85M and the high-end Z87 Extreme6 motherboard.

Starting with the budget-oriented offering the B85M is based on the Intel B85 chipset and features the compact micro-ATX form factor. Being small in size the motherboard comes with just two DDR3 memory slots and has a single PCI-E 3.0 x16 slot, another PCI-E 2.0 x16 slot (electrical x4) and two legacy PCI slots. Six SATA 3.0 ports provide storage and there’s an 8-channel on-board sound system, four USB 3.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, DVI, D-Sub and HDMI display outputs, COM/LPT ports and finally PS/2 mouse/keyboard connectors.

The high-end Z87 Extreme6 is based on the Z87 chipset and as expected comes with more goodies. First the motherboard uses a 10-phase VRM power system to feed the CPU and has four DDR3 memory slots, three PCI-E 3.0 x16 slots that can work at x16/NC/NC or x8/x8/NC or x8/x4/x4 configurations, one PCI-E 2.0 x1 slot, one mPCIe slot and finally two legacy PCI slots. Eight SATA 3.0 ports provide storage (six powered by the Z87 chipset and two by an external controller). The Z87 Extreme6 also has four USB 3.0 ports, an 8-channel HD audio system, Gigabit Ethernet, DVI, D-Sub and HDMI display outputs.

ASRock did not say anything on pricing or availability but the boards are likely to appear along with Intel’s Haswell processor in June 2013.
