ECS P67H2-A Motherboard


Let’s take a look at one of the first socket LGA1155 motherboards to reach the market, the ECS P67H2-A, based on the forthcoming P67 chipset for Intel’s “Sandy Bridge” processors. The highlights of this motherboard include three PCI Express x16 slots – allowing any kind of video card to be installed in parallel, even if they are from different vendors, thanks to a Lucid HydraLogix 200 processor – , six USB 3.0 ports, and more. Let’s check it out.

The next-generation Intel CPUs, codenamed “Sandy Bridge,” will be released in January, 2011, and will use a new socket, called LGA1155 or “socket LGA1155.” To match this new CPU generation Intel will launch two chipsets, the H67 and P67. The first one is targeted to computers with integrated video (keeping in mind that the video itself is produced by the CPU, and not by the chipset), while the second one is targeted to mid-range and high-end motherboards without integrated video.

As expected on a high-end product, the portrayed motherboard comes in the ATX form factor, and we were happy to see that ECS is definitely reading our reviews and decided to stop using 300 different colors on their motherboards. The P67H2-A uses gray and white parts, giving it a very sober and professional looks.
