Summary: Retailing for about $200 USD or just a little bit less, this is
the most expensive ASRock motherboard we have seen to date. We are used to seeing
ASRock products available for under $100 USD, but the X48TurboTwins-WiFi deploys
Intel's current flagship Chipset and offers a few extras such as...
Summary: ASRock might not be a household name like its parent company Asus, however from the last couple motherboard we've tested from them, it might not be long before they are also a household name also.
Pros: Very Affordable Price, Very Stable, Good Features, DDR2 and DDR3 Support
Summary: After testing the ASRock X48TurboTwins-WiFi+AP, I was pretty impressed with its performance. It produced very good scores during all our benchmarks, and competed very well against big brand names. This is all thanks to the Intel X48 chipset and ICH9R
Conclusion: Once again, ASRock has a sure winner if you look at board features. ASRock provides its customers with dual 16x PCIE 2.0 slots, 7.1 HD audio, WiFi capabilities, overclocking and monitoring software and many other perks.
Pros: - CrossFire support with two 16x PCIE 2.0 slots, - Hybrid DDR2/DDR3, - HD 7.1 audio, - Quality design, with solid capacitors, - Very cool running chipset, - 45nm and FSB1600/1333 CPU support with stock BIOS, - Good overclocker – 4200Mhz easily, - Price!
Cons: - Limited BIOS options, - Few BIOS issues with memory dividers, - Voltage regulation could be better, - Board layout (oddly placed 24pin, close PCIE slots), - Very limited availability at this time
Conclusion: ASRock hat sich neu orientiert und versucht den Overclockeransprüchen mehr und mehr gerecht zu werden. Mit dem X48 Turbo Twins ist der erste Schritt in diese richtige Richtung getan, dennoch reicht es noch nicht aus, um mit der Konkurrenz gleichzuziehen.
