CeBIT: ASRock introduces Haswell Z87/H87/B85 motherboards

By ,


The Intel Haswell processors won't come out for another three months, but ASRock has already unveiled its new LGA1150 motherboards at CeBIT. These are obviously pre-production models, so the final versions could be slightly different.

ASRock Z87 Extreme6

The ASRock Z87 Extreme6 is an ATX motherboard equipped with Premium Gold capacitors. The fourth generation processors will be powered via the 12-phase Digi Power CPU power supply. Dual-channel DDR3 memory is supported with a clock speed of up to 1600 MHz, and there are four DIMM slots. The high-end motherboard supports Nvidia Quad SLI and AMD 3-Way CrossFireX, and there are two PCI-Express 3.0 slots and one PCI-Express 2.0 slot, along with two PCI and one PCI-Express 2.0 x1. 

Display connectors include D-Sub, DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort, and you can connect multiple monitors. You get six USB 3.0 ports, four of which are located on the I/O panel. There are also eight USB 2.0 ports, and eight SATA600 ports. A Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet chip is present, along with a Realtek ALC898 sound card.
