Foxconn 6150K8MA-8EKRS – motherboard – micro ATX – Socket 939 – GeForce 6150
Integrated video; it’s an area where AMD has not had a presence since the dawn of the Athlon 64 processor, and unfortunately it is also one of the largest markets. Besides, the board also shows the layout of all interface headers, which is a rare thing.
There is a load menu function, mxnual allows to choose a boot device to startup a system 6150k8ms-8ekrs modifying BIOS Setup. As the graphics slot is 61500k8ma-8ekrs close to memory slots, an installed video card may hamper your manipulations with memory modules.
It unveiled two models based on modifications of chipset combinations, promising to become very popular: On the flip side, consumers looking to build a budget workstation machine can save a bit of money with a good integrated video motherboard, which precludes the need to buy a standalone videocard right off the bat.
If you watch 6150k8ma–8ekrs mainly on your monitor, you can still enjoy the benefits of the GeForce ‘s HD accelerator there. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: Though the motherboard under review with the current BIOS version does not allow to set DRAM Timing, which is so important for performance, it was automatically set to 1T in our tests; detailed information on the memory mode is displayed at startup.
In this case we decided to limit ourselves to publishing the results of a single motherboard on a different chipset SiSas the performance of AMD64 solutions manaul not depend on a chipset to be more exact, only periphery’s and probably video card’s performance depends on it. There has been a lot of focus on motherboard capacitors in the last year, so we make a point of listing the brands used on the boards we test.
Other manufacturers are already doing this, and it really does same DIY’ers time and headaches. Frequency response from 40 Hz to 15 kHzdB: In terms of goodies, the motherboard incorporates onboard analog video, a 7. Enthusiasts want custom machines, with features they can customize. Beginners Guides Cases and Access.
Foxconn WinFast K8MA-8EKRS Motherboard Review –
The mentioned BIOS parameters are available in this version, but the mqnual of non-standard settings hasn’t been 6150k8ma-8ekfs.
Write a comment below. The particular board we 6150k8ma-8ekrx did not come with a user’s manual, which is a bit surprising, however there is one included on the driver CD. Foxconn include a decent software bundle here; with a full copy of Norton Internet Security among the titles. Video 3Digests Video cards: With the release of the nVIDIA’s GeForce series chipsets, enthusiasts now have a high powered integrated option that does not well A standalone graphics card can also be installed in the single PCI Express x16 slot if desired.
In general, critical circuits incorporate electrolytic capacitors from OST we are not very enthusiastic about it and United Chemi-Con.
It’s very strange that HDA support, which finally found its way to NVIDIA chipsets, is not included in this motherboard, which is intended for a home multimedia center! Current chipsets featuring integrated video are loaded with features but lack performance especially when it comes to 3D games. The models are practically no different, except for their chipsets and the resulting functionalitythey use the same PCB with the same peculiarities, and even the same BIOS version: The board also contains a voltage regulator for memory consisting of several uF capacitors.
The deciding factor may be its low price, but we actually had no reliable information about it at the time we published this article. The high heatsink on the northbridge may be an obstacle to install a video card with a bulky heatsink at the back side. Dynamic range, dB A: As for now, we offer a traditional express-comparison of results demonstrated by this and other models of the same class.
The 3-phase switching voltage regulator of the processor incorporates three field-effect transistors per channel, five uF capacitors, four uF ones, and several ones of lesser capacitance.
Both the nVidia GeForce chipset and nForce Southbridge are cooled with silent passive aluminum heatsinks. Foxconn SuperUtilites package is a typical set of utilities:
