ECS G-M3 – – motherboard – micro ATX – LGA Socket – iG Overview – CNET
Transformation and Lightning is still not hardware accelerated, so don’t expect great improvements to 3D performance though you will see a noticeable jump from using a dual core processor.
If gaming is high on your to-do-list however, a discreet PCIe graphics card is the way to go. The GMA has sufficient capabilities to deliver decent video quality with support for resolutions up to x which covers even p contentdual stream decoding and hardware motion compensation for HD MPEG2. Now what all this means is that the onboard graphics will be powerful enough to handle high resolution videos and high bitrate DVD quality decoding, but will still have to rely on the CPU for true HD decoding like H.
Looking back at the G-M3 motherboard, it seems that ECS has also decided to stick with the basics.
This leaves the user with no other option than to purchase media expansion or ADD2 cards separately if they need dual view, TV-out or PVR capabilities.
This choice was esc made to make the motherboard comply with the Viiv standard, but we’re not complaining since it is still an upgrade to the previous Realtek PCI based controller.
Because the G-M3 is an entry-level motherboard to start with, it isn’t overly crowded with components. With only two DIMM slots and a structured design, the board has a spacious layout that should provide good ventilation features to the memory, CPU and power components.
Expansion slot spacing is as good as it gets with four slots on a micro-ATX motherboard, so the only thing that really bugged us out was the extreme lack of fan headers. As you can see from the limited options available, the G-M3 is clearly not designed for any serious overclocking activity.
This means that users will have overall better control of memory timing and less restrictive menus. The board even has a trick or two up its sleeves as our review unit came factory overclocked more on this in the next page resulting in a default FSB of MHz and boosting memory to DDR speeds.
Despite 945g-j3 already overclocked speeds and lack of voltage controls, the G-M3 is still a decent overclocker. Have feedback on the article for the editorial team?
