ASRock 775Dual-VSTA Motherboard
Hitting our labs today were two more ASRock motherboards to put under our Linux microscope. The first motherboard was the ASRock 775Dual-VSTA. This motherboard is based on the VIA PT880 Pro/Ultra and VT8237A. It supports Intel LGA-775 processors up to and including the upcoming Conroe. Meanwhile, since it is part of the ASRock "Dual" series, it continues to boast support for both PCI Express and AGP graphics, as well as DDR1 and DDR2. For those that care about this feature, it is indeed Microsoft Windows Vista ready. Phoronix will have Linux compatibility notes and benchmarks in our usual motherboard review style in the upcoming weeks. Below are a few quick shots of this new ASRock 775Dual-VSTA motherboard.
