ASRock A330ION Mini ITX Atom + ION Motherboard Review

PC Perspective
28 June 2010
  • Excerpt: Mini ITX motherboards are growing in popularity because of their low power consumption, good performance, and support for high definition video and audio. They are also a good solution for users on a budget because most (if not all) are being outfitted with integrated video and CPUs like the ASRock A330ION we are evaluating today.

ASRock A330ION ITX Motherboard

11 April 2010
  • Summary: As we carry on into the gaming side of things, we start off with a couple of tried-and-true benchmarks; 3DMark 06 and 3DMark Vantage.  We used the default benchmark settings for both.  This gives a balanced score and stresses both the graphics and CPU systems on the notebook.  While higher quality and resolution tests may be interesting, we don't have any other relative data to compare to and these numbers wouldn't mean much to most people.
  • Pros: Small ITX form factor, ION Chipset gives the Atom some life, Dual-core 330 with HyperThreading, HDMI, DVI-D & VGA output, Two eSATA/USB ports for extra external storage options
  • Cons: Nothing really stands out

ASRock A330ION nVidia MCP7A-ION Mini-ITX Motherboard Review

4 April 2010
  • Summary: Conclusions Except when compared against other Mini-ITX systems, the A330ION isn’t about performance…it is about size. The footprint of this particular rig is 13” x 9” x 5”, about as small as you are going to get in the PC world and still have room for an internal 5.25” optical drive. This board is intended to be used in an HTPC. How much that HTPC will do above playing DVDs and music, reading email and surfing the ‘net, is up to the owner.
  • Pros: – Tiny footprint, – DDR3 memory gives a performance boost over other Atom rigs, – Overclock capable if you desire, – Bundled processor and integrated graphics make for a cheap build
  • Cons: – Not intended for much more than HTPC duties

  • Conclusion: After taking a closer look at the board it has performed very well, we have had no stability or heat issues even though it is equipped with a very small heatsink and a 40 mm fan. The board got pretty much all the features you look for right now, the only flaw so far has been the lack of onboard WIFI.

Análise Motherboard ASRock A330ION

5 February 2014
  • Conclusion: Destaco pela Positiva: – IGP com excelente performance no que toca ao decode de filmes HD. Compensa a fraca velocidade do Atom – Suporte para CUDA. – O Atom se porta bem em multi threading, com aumentos de até 300% face a single thread. Alem disso é rápido o suficiente para correr o windows 7 de modo fluído e tarefas leves. – Saída HDMI, com som e de boa qualidade. – Consumo de energia muito baixo (com a fonte utilizada).

ASRock A330ION

8 April 2010
  • Conclusion: Sidst vi kiggede på et ION baseret bundkort, afprøvede vi ogsa at afspille Flash video indhold fra YouTube, da YouTube for ganske nyeligt har lanceret deres service med mulighed for video i både 720p og 1080p high definition opløsninger. Dette prøver vi også denne gang og igen er det Pixars lille kort-film Burn-E i 1080p format, som står for skud.

Expert Review

31 March 2010
  • Summary: Avec cette petite carte mère, Asrock nous livre un très bon produit, bien fini, au bios complet et à l'équipement pléthorique pour le format. Les performances sont bonnes, du moins pour de l'ATOM et du ION, et le passage à la DDR3 permet un léger gain de performances au niveau de la 9400 m. Bref, un composant idéal pour une machine de bureautique, ou une petite plateforme HD de Salon. De plus, la consommation est réduite, et la A330 ne vous ruinera pas en électricité.
  • Pros: Layout, Equipement, N330 + ION, Performances, Consommation, Overclocking
  • Cons: Ventilateur, Prix
