ECS PX1 is the first Intel Conroe board from ECS based on the Intel® P965 Broadwater chipset featuring Core™ 2 Duo CPU support and next-generation micro-architecture (NGMA).
The PX1, based on P965 chipset and Core™ 2 Duo CPU support, offers great performance with lower power consumption, Hyper-Threading Technology and Fan Speed Control (AFSC) Tuning Optimization, making the PX1 a smaller, quieter and more energy efficient system. The PX1 includes eSATA support and Intel® Matrix Storage Technology (MST) for high levels of internal and external hard drive protection, performance and upgradeability.
The PX1 adopts Intel® Memory Pipeline Technology to support DDR2 SDRAM in dual channel mode clocked at up to 800MHz, surpassing the previous benchmark of 667MHz. Other integrated features include 2 x PCI-E x16 slots, 2 x PCI-E x 1 slots, 10 x USB 2.0, 6 x Serial ATA support for the fastest file transfer rate, high-definition 8-channel ALC885 audio, dual Gigabit LAN controllers for fast network connectivity, and a BIOS that supports a wide range of overclocking options.
ECS introduces innovative technologies with the PX1, including ECS’s Qoolteck technology
. Triple Cooling uses a special heat pipe design
to effectively direct heat from the southbridge, northbridge and mosfet out of the chassis for better heat management, increased performance and cooler operation.
As we can see from the design, it is a step ahead for ECS and it is deem to improve on ECS's image as a 1st high end mainboard manufacturer.
For those who want the latest great performance, but not extreme performance, ECS offers the P965T-A and G965T-M motherboards. With support for up to eight Serial ATA hard disk drives, diverse expansion slots and 8-channel high-definition audio, the P965T-A is perfect for multimedia platforms, while the G965T-M motherboard supports the latest Intel® Clear Video Technology designed for high-resolution, graphics-intensive rendering and video processing.
Users migrating to the latest Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processors can take advantage of the flexibility and practicality of P46PLT-A and 946GZT-M motherboards. Combining the Intel® 946PL/Intel® 946GZ chip with the Intel® ICH7 Southbridge, these motherboards enable seamless CPU upgrade while maintaining support for IDE devices to protect the user’s storage investments.
