Elitegroup Computer Systems introduces new motherboard

Nov 09, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Elitegroup Computer Systems Co., Ltd., or ECS, has introduced the ECS A970M-A DELUXE, a newest member of its Black Series of PC motherboards.

According to the company, the ECS A970M-A DELUXE supports AMD AM3 and AM3+ APUs, and gets the most from them with the latest ECS innovations for power and reliability. The A970M-A DELUXE features full Windows 8 support, an upgraded user friendly BIOS EZ BIOS, dust defending technology - Anti Dust Technology (ADS) and 8 channel HD audio.

The A970M-A DELUXE is built around the AMD 970 chipset, to squeeze the maximum performance out of the powerful CPUs, while still maintaining compatibility with older technology. The motherboard features the new user-friendly graphical uEFI BIOS EZ BIOS, with ECS MIB X for easy overclocking, tweaking, a multi-language interface and full Windows 8 support. Users can select and change settings in the BIOS with mouse and keyboard, the company said.

The A970M-A DELUXE introduces new features like ECS Anti-Dust Shield Technology (ADS). The ultimate in dust defending technology, ADS prevents dust build up on the motherboard, a common, but little-understood cause of instability, intermittent faults, and poor performance. Long-term dust build up can cripple even the most powerful PCs by causing tough-to-diagnose issues like overheating, short-circuits, and unreliable memory or graphics card connection, the company added.

The motherboard is also certified by ECS Nonstop Technology. ECS Nonstop Certification brings the user a hassle-free computing experience by solving many common PC hardware problems before they can even occur. ECS Nonstop features include; enhanced gold plating on critical contacts, all solid capacitors with 6 times longevity, and Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) protection for USB3.0, USB2.0, eSATA and LAN. These hardware enhancements and a strict series of specially-designed tests work together to protect PCs and ensure that all ECS Nonstop Certified motherboards can be relied on for stability and reliability far into the future, long after competing products have let you down.

The ATX format A970M-A DELUXE features 2 PCIe Gen2 x16 slots for high-speed graphics card upgrades and CrossFireX support, as well as 2 PCIe Gen2 x1 slots and 2 PCI slots for other cards. Up to 32 GB of dual channel DDR3 memory can be installed in 4 DIMMs, with a maximum standard speed of 1866 MHz, or up to 2133 MHz for overclockers. There are 5 SATA 6 Gb/s connectors for high speed disk drives and other storage devices.

Expansion and connectivity options in the A970M-A DELUXE include 2 USB 3.0 ports, 8 USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit LAN, and a eSATA 6Gb/s connector for high-capacity portable storage. There are also 3 internal USB 2.0 headers which can support an additional 6 USB 2.0 ports if required.

The A970M-A DELUXE is bundled with THX TruStudio PRO software, which delivers professional live performance-quality surround audio for music, movies and games. Additional software includes Norton anti-virus software, Muzee, Cyberlink Media Suite, and the ECS iEZ utility, which combines the eBLU BIOS Live Update Utility, the eDLU Drivers Live Update Utility and the eSF Smart Fan Utility.
