CES 2012 Coverage



With arguably some of the best looking PCBs on the market, ECS (Elitegroup Computer Systems) took the chance to show us its Black Series of motherboards at CES this year. We got a chance to snap some pictures of the latest X79 boards from ECS, an AMD 990FX board, and two Ivy Bridge compatible boards. The full ATX board uses the Z77 chipset and the micro ATX model uses the H77 chipset. Of course, we don’t have much in the way of specifications when it comes to Ivy Bridge boards yet, but at this point we at least know that our trusted manufacturers have them ready for when Intel feels that Ivy Bridge itself is ready! We also got a chance to lay eyes on the latest NVIDIA GTX card lineup from ECS, which included the GTX 560, GTX 570, and GTX 580.












Some new innovation we had a chance to see is the newly-launched Wi-Bridge from ECS. The Wi-Bridge, in short, is a device that supports just about every bit of streaming and local media and puts it up to your TV in full 1080p. While connected to a network, the Wi-Bridge accepts connections from any iOS and Android device, and the user has the ability to stream media from the remote. Not only can you stream media files onto the TV, but you can extend your computer or notebook screen to the TV and use your smart tablet or phone device as the controller.


We didn’t get a lot of time looking at it, but ECS was also showing an OEM all-in-one PC case for use with slim ITX form factor motherboards. Since a large portion of the market is getting ready for Windows 8 and its touch-heavy interface, ECS is clearly getting prepared by having these guys ready in the coming year.
