ECS Cross-platform Motherboard Examined

By Justin Mann on October 13, 2005, 8:09 PM
Could dual platform boards be up to snuff? ECS's attempt at making cross-platform boards has been received with both praise and criticism, though many just plain ask why. Now we have some actual numbers behind the board though, and sometimes versatility can be more important than performance. Here it is. The board actually does have a certain aesthetic appeal, and though it seems rather awkward, the numbers speak for it. It is a decently performing board, and starts out at a low cost. That is easily offset though by the additional cost of the SIMA card needed to use different processors on it. Some may like it, though, and the review gives you all the information you need.
