Excerpt: A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of reviewing the ECS P43T-A2 motherboard and today we are going to take a look at the latest ECS offering, the G45T-M2 motherboard. The latest motherboard is targeted toward the HTPC (Home Theater PC) crowd. It supports nearly all of the latest LGA775 based Intel processors, DVI output and a built-in Intel GMA X4500HD graphics chip. Read on as we evaluate the G45T-M2.
Summary: Above all, our conclusions regarding the Intel G45 chipset. Despite the declared support for DirectX 10, its practical implementation proved to be rather "raw". In particular, we came across dramatical image flaws in games like PT Boats, and Crysis. Probably, the relatively high speed results in Crysis are explained just by that. By the way, such "flaw" was noted in Intel chipsets earlier as well.
