ASRock incorporates new Intel technologies in its H61 boards

/ 5 years ago

Even though not having a booth at CeBIT this year, ASRock is still working hard, today bringing new technologies and support to their entire Intel H61 motherboard series.

Through the latest ME8 update for the BIOS and driver, the H61 boards from ASRock now support the Intel Rapid Start and Smart Connect Technologies, and even though these new technologies are targeted for the new Ivy Bridge platform, users get the chance to try it out with the current Sandy Bridge platform.

“High-performance functions are not exclusive for high-end motherboards. ASRock’s strength is to apply premium function on budget-level motherboards, making the function available by most of the users.” commented James Lee, V.P. of Sales and Marketing at ASRock.

“This time, miracles do happen at ASRock! Thanks to the excellent R&D team, ASRock is the first motherboard company to apply these two Intel new functions on H61 series motherboard in the world!”

That’s right, not only does the ME8 update bring new technologies, it also brings support for the upcoming 22nm Ivy Bridge platform. Thanks to this update, the H61 series motherboard can even support up to amazing DDR3 2200+ (OC) high speed memory frequency.

Configuring the ASRock H61 motherboard to support the new CPU doesn’t require a degree in rocket science, just update the BIOS and driver to the latest ME8 version which can be downloaded from the ASRock website.
