ASRock will be showcasing a lot of new products at the
Computex Taipei 2008. Here is a list of boards on display.
We will first take a
look at the P45 motherboards - ASRock P45R2000-WiFi.
ASRock P45R2000-WiFi is the only P45 MB which supports FSB2000 MHz (OC)!
P45R2000-WiFi supports the exclusive DDR2 + DDR3
memory module. With DDR3 getting popular, ASRock P45R2000-WiFi is definitely the
best flexible memory solution. Other than that, P45R2000-WiFi also supports the
latest PCIE2.0 specification which can fully deliver PCIE2.0 VGA card
performance. The flexible PCIE2.0 graphics slots design (2 x PCIE2.0 slots,
x16/x8, x8) allow user to choose x16 for single card or x8/x8 for Cross Fire.
Other excellent designs include Dual Gigabit LAN, free bundled WiFi-802.11g
module, ALC890 Audio Codec for 110dB sound quality and all solid capacitors
Two other models P45R2000 and
P45TurboTwins2000 share a similar layout just with slightly difference specs
(with/without WIFI, 1394)
With PCIE2.0 VGA card replacing the PCIE1.0 VGA card gradually, only
motherboard supports PCIE2.0 specification can fully deliver PCIE2.0 VGA card
performance. ASRock P43R1600Twins-WiFi supports the latest PCIE2.0x16
specification which is better than the PCIE1.0x16 specification of P35
motherboard. P43R1600Twins-WiFi has also been proven 14% better than P35

Even when system is off, ASRock P43 MB can save more energy than P35 Ref. MB
because of the lower power consumption of +5VSB.
