ASUS P8C WS Intel Xeon E3-1200 v2 Workstation Motherboard (LGA1155) Preview

The ASUS P8C WS is the first motherboard based on the C216 express chipset, and built for the new Intel Ivy Bridge Xeon CPU (E3-1200 series v2). For those that are wondering, the C216 chipset is a decendent of the C206 chipset that came with the Sandy Bridge generation. The big advantage of  the C206 and C216 series chipsets is the ability to leverage the on-die GPU of the “5” series CPUs, e.g. the Intel Xeon E3-1245 V2 CPU. Along with the ability to utilize the on-die GPU, one also can use Intel vPro for remote management, and at a much higher resolution than one can with traditional on-board BMC graphics. How will ASUS get on in bringing us their new workstation [...]

Intel Xeon E3-1280 V2 – Ivy Bridge Xeon Review 4C/8T 3.6GHz

Moving up the stack, today we are taking a look at the Intel Xeon E3-1270 V2, which is a new Ivy Bridge Xeon E3 series CPU built on Intel’s new 22nm process. Like last year where most of the original E3-1200 series was reviewed, we will be reviewing the vast majority of Intel’s Xeon E3 V2 lineup. The Xeon E3-1270 V2 holds a small performance advantage over the previously reviewed Intel Xeon E3-1230 V2 and Intel Xeon E3-1240 V2. Moving to the next 100MHz step up, the E3-1280 V2, which involves a similar 100MHz clock speed jump, currently costs another $280 over the Intel Xeon E3-1270 V2, or which is getting close to double the cost ($349 v. $629) for a relatively small [...]

Intel Xeon E3-1220 V2 – Ivy Bridge Xeon Review 4C/4T 3.1GHz

Today we are taking a look at the Intel Xeon E3-1220 V2, which is a new Ivy Bridge Xeon E3 series CPU built on Intel’s new 22nm process. Last year, ServeTheHome was the first site to review the Intel Xeon E3-1220 (V1) that was long delayed as there was a delay with the Sandy Bridge Bromolow platform. This year, we are again reviewing the majority of the Intel Xeon E3 lineup, including the Intel Xeon E3-1220 V2. The original Xeon E3-1220 was the fourth most visited review of the E3-1200 V1 series, so it is a popular chip sporting a 4 core / 4 thread design much like Intel’s Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge Core i5 [...]

ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe Ivy Bridge mini ITX Motherboard Review

In this review, you will see how the ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe packs just about every feature one would want when building a HTPC (or general purpose PC for that matter) into a very small mini ITX form factor. I will say this, ever since I received this board and opened it, my jaw dropped. ASUS fit every single feature I had wanted into one (or two depending on how you count it) small pieces of PCB. As a spoiler, the retail price on this board is around $200, which means this is not a budget board and we are used to the mini ITX premium where smaller motherboards cost more. On the other hand, it is packed so full of features that it is a board that can be used to replace a traditional [...]
