It’s replaced with a mysterious model, which has been allegedly shipped for a long time already. Dmitry Laptev lpt ixbt. As you can see in Figure 2, this motherboard really uses RS Radeon Xpress even though its drivers recognize it as Radeon Xpress This motherboard still accepts pin ATX power supplies. It will probably be cheaper. You need to install two identical memory modules in order to achieve the maximum performance this motherboard can provide. We can only welcome this useful innovation and hope that it will spread to the other ECS models and inexpensive models from other manufacturers.

Passive cooling of the chipset is justified anyway, not only from the economic, but also from the technical point of view, as it does not release much heat. Write a comment below.

This south bridge provides 10 USB 2. ECS should have used different colors on the memory sockets to let you know that this motherboard supports DDR dual channel feature.

Review: ECS RSM-M AM2 Radeon Xpress motherboard – Mainboard –

Probably stability and options that reduce the total cost of a given system without deteriorating characteristics of the ecw. The company obviously intends to stick to it for all inexpensive motherboards Documentation: For example, their performance is similar in relatively modern games alas, both motherboards do not offer sufficient performance for normal gaming.


Really vital parameters eecs inexpensive chipsets — low cost and high reliability — should also be perfected in time-proved solutions. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.

ECS RS485M-M Motherboard Review

Unfortunately, the bundle does not include a much more useful utility for updating BIOS and system drivers, checking rrs485m updates on the official web site. Noise level, dB A: As a result, the motherboard has only bare necessities.

It will probably be cheaper. The main difference between RS and RS is the clock used by their graphics engine. Why waste resources on designing rs48m new products no different from the old ones in real features, except for the official support for the new processorsespecially in the inexpensive segment, fcs it often makes no sense to raise functionality?

Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method. The mentioned BIOS parameters are available in this version, but the viability of non-standard settings hasn’t been tested. And you must have really rich imagination to assume that this motherboard may need RAID with four drives and a top video card.

ECS RS485M-M – 1.0 – motherboard – micro ATX – Socket AM2 – Radeon Xpress 1100

We have no doubts, of course, that putting the names in order will be easier for the notorious alliance: However, the difference is hardly critical. Of course people that buy a socket AM2 motherboard knows that rs85m CPU memory controller is capable of running under dual channel mode, but using the same color on both sockets may lead users to think that this motherboard uses single channel mode.


It’s replaced with a mysterious model, which has been allegedly shipped for a long time already. There may appear a better equipped model, based on rss485m PCB: It’s much more reasonable to finetune high-level models.

As you can see in Figure 2, this motherboard really uses RS Radeon Xpress even though its drivers recognize it as Radeon Xpress Smart Fan allows to install a cheap CPU cooler and still get a low-noise system.

But from a practical point of view, you can install two hard drives even if you have a bulky video card. The motherboard offers an impressive range of settings for memory timings and other parameters that have to do with memory latencies, but the lack of settings for controlling voltages will not please overclockers. Costing very little and targeted to the entry-level market, we were very curious to compare its performance to cheap add-in video cards, like GeForce The traditional layout of SATA connectors on compact motherboards close to Southbridge and, alas, fcs the zone that may be occupied by a full-size video card, is not ideal.

This motherboard still accepts pin Rd485m power supplies. RS north bridge Radeon Xpress Consumed Power, Energy Consumption:
