Which motherboard do you use?

Hey guys! Vote for the motherboard that you use...!

ASRock

ASRock Inc. produces motherboards, in the past mainly for the budget-mainstream sector but more recently also focusing on high-end motherboards. It was started in 2002 in Taiwan as a subsidiary of ASUS.

In the beginning, they were mainly known for producing low-cost OEM solutions based on less expensive outdated chipsets. This turned out to be quite successful because of their price and reliability. Since then ASRock has evolved into producing creative value-oriented solutions, often with an eye on multiple compatibility. They have been producing motherboards with both Socket 478 and Socket LGA775 support, with both Socket 754 and Socket 939 support, and more recently Socket AM2 with both AGP and PCI Express support, as well as boards with Future CPU Ports that allow the installation of a card with a future CPU socket and memory interface on it. In addition, recently ASRock have been producing motherboards with relatively up-to-date chipsets, like the AMD 780G chipset, Intel P965, P45 etc.

Intel

Intel Corporation is the world's largest semiconductor company and the inventor of the x86 series of microprocessors, the processors found in most personal computers. Intel was founded on July 18, 1968 as Integrated Electronics Corporation and based in Santa Clara, California, USA. Intel also makes motherboard chipsets, network cards and ICs, flash memory, graphic chips, embedded processors, and other devices related to communications and computing. Founded by semiconductor pioneers Robert Noyce and Gordon Moore, and widely associated with the executive leadership and vision of Andrew Grove, Intel combines advanced chip design capability with a leading-edge manufacturing capability. Originally known primarily to engineers and technologists, Intel's successful "Intel Inside" advertising campaign of the 1990s made it and its Pentium processor household names.

Intel was an early developer of SRAM and DRAM memory chips, and this represented the majority of its business until the early 1980s. While Intel created the first commercial microprocessor chip in 1971, it was not until the success of the personal computer (PC) that this became their primary business. During the 1990s, Intel invested heavily in new microprocessor designs fostering the rapid growth of the PC industry. During this period Intel became the dominant supplier of microprocessors for PCs, and was known for aggressive and sometimes controversial tactics in defense of its market position, as well as a struggle with Microsoft for control over the direction of the PC industry. The 2007 rankings of the world's 100 most powerful brands published by Millward Brown Optimor showed the company's brand value falling 10 places ? from number 15 to number 25.

In addition to its work in semiconductors, Intel has begun research in electrical transmission and generation.

Re: Which motherboard do you use?

Intel pushes the boundaries of innovation for our work to be more exciting, fulfilling, and manageable. And the work never stops. They never stop looking for the next leap ahead—in technology, education, culture, manufacturing, and social responsibility. And they never stop striving to deliver solutions with greater benefits for everyone.
