The introduction to the ASRock product presentation ...
ASRock has invited to the current product presentation

AMD and Intel processors.
In the following 14 pages long article we will take a closer look to these motherboards.

ALiveNF7G-HDready and the ALiveNF6G-VSTA.
For Intel processors: ASRock 4CoreDual-SATA2, 4Core1333-Viiv, 4Core1333-eSATA2, ConRoe1333-GLAN,
ConRoe1333-D667 R1.0, 4Core1333-FullHD, ConRoe1333-DVI/H R2.0 and the ConRoe1333-1394.
Here's a picture of all previewed motherboards ...
The presentation was held in the above shown hotel "van the Valk" in Cuijk (Netherland).
Special thanks to Reiner Huf and greetings to our buddies PC-Treiber.net
Mr. Sterling Wu and Mr. Chris Lee didn't only show their motherboards, but also the latest technical trends
like e.g. Full HD 1080p support,
Blue-Ray, HD DVD, HDCP and the Intel Viiv technology.
Furthermore ASRock introduced the ASRock DeskExpress 3,5" device, which is used to support
and ExpressCard/34 devices for Notebooks also in conventional Desktop PCs.
The performance is with 2,5 Gigabit per second about 2,5x times faster than a conventional 32-bit PCMCIA card,
but the price of these PCI Express Cards (short ExpressCard) are still much more expensive.
Anyway, new technologies are the future and will help to reduce the prices soon.
They have additionally explained the compatibility to the Intel FSB1333 processors and the soon coming
AMD AM2+ processors like e.g. the Rana, Spica, Agena and Kuma AM2+ CPUs,
which should work also on older ASRock boards with a BIOS update.
I hope that you will enjoy the following Previews ...
