The motherboard or mainboard is the component that connects all the different parts of your computer. Often it has some integrated components like a sound card, enabling your computer to play sound, or a network card, to connect your computer to the network. The standard form factor (size) for motherboards is ATX, you need at least a midi-tower to fit one of those in. Micro-ATX motherboards are often more complete and have more onboard devices, like a video board and fit in smaller cases, but are generally less expandable.

In the wake of the announced merger of ATI and AMD two months ago everything in the motherboard and computer industry will likely change. I won't go into a commentary on the merger, as I've done so already in other reviews. The combined company will co...

Bluetooth 16 Aug 2006 MSI K9A Platinum ATi RD580 + SB600 is ATIs CrossFire solution chipset for the AM2 mainboard. A few months ago, we checked out the chipset and found it to have a good feature set comparable to the NVIDIA flavour. One of such is th...

Now that AMD and ATi are more than just good friends, the latters chipsets are likely to be receiving considerably greater favour from the former. With the release of the CrossFire Xpress 3200 chipset aka RD580, ATi finally gave AMD fans good reason...
Bottom line We cant help feeling the K9A Platinum is a bit of a missed opportunity. Its a decent enough package, but for a performance board it doesnt take full advantage of the RD580s extensive tweaking options, leaving you with a much more limited range. It...
