Intel Z97 Broadwell Round Up 13

The computer DIY market is an interesting paradox these days. The Intel 9 Series “Broadwell” chipset motherboards released, while Z87 boards seemingly start hitting their prime with solid BIOS and software updates. In fact, there are still quite a few excellent Z87 boards on the shelves. But it makes sense since the Z97 chipset isn’t really a major leap forward, …

Remember the name “Pentium”? The flagship brand from Intel was synonymous with computer processors for a number of years. While the Core architecture has long since replaced it, the Pentium name still rears its head from time to time. Unfortunately that’s only been in the budget side of Intel’s line of CPUs.

A75M-ITX_canned

I believe that the AMD APUs are the only choice for a single chip HTPC solution and I stand by that statement.
