Default ASRock Conroe1333 eSATA2 - Crossfire Review @ Tweaktown

This is a pretty interesting review of the new Asrock board which offers Crossfire along with the Core 2 architecture at a VERY reasonable price.

P965 and P35 have been the boards of choice, but unfortunately they carry a bit more of a price premium due to the need for additional controllers for their IDE setups, in turn taking up more PCB space. The best option is to go back to the old school chipsets like the 945 and 946, until now it’s been impossible to run Core 2 and Crossfire on them though, but thankfully the 945P “C” stepping has arrived.

Today we have been given ASRock’s Conroe1333 eSATA2 base motherboard for the mid-range to value level PC platform, hoping to snag users wanting Crossfire at a more reasonable price
