[pconline evaluation] I won't talk much about the gossip at the beginning. Everyone who will click in knows what God u is! When we first reported e3v5, we made a prediction: the manufacturer will certainly take action against E3. Now it seems that our prediction is accurate again! So, without delay, pconline evaluation room will bring you the freshest and most dry e3-1230 The first evaluation of V5!
● pay attention to the E3 matching of this generation! No more love for B150
Before starting the evaluation, let's first solve the problem that believers are most concerned about and most eager to know - the motherboard matching problem! If you pay attention to our pconline series of reports on Xeon e3v5, you know that this generation of E3 life criminals are Tiansha lone stars, It was ruthlessly blocked by the Archbishop (Intel) and no longer supported the 100 series motherboard. It was almost insulated from DIY. Fortunately, it was rescued by the motherboard manufacturer (we knew there were policies and Countermeasures). It was targeted to launch the C200 chipset motherboard in the DIY market, which avoided the lonely life of E3 in the V5 generation
So believers who want to join the church need to change their inherent thinking, If there is no accident (don't launch the unlock BIOS), "e3v5 + B150" only has an infinite black screen waiting for you. To light up this generation of Shenu, you can only use the motherboard with the exclusive server C200 chipset. However, the motherboard manufacturers promote the server motherboard in the DIY market. There is no doubt that the motherboard is playing a marginal ball in the gray area, and a lot of derivative problems need to be solved.
1. What should I call God u car? C232 or X150
The C200 chip motherboard set is completely a strange product for the DIY market, and its awareness is very low. Intel officials will certainly not hype this gray product, so the important task of science popularization can only fall on the motherboard manufacturers. But if you want DIY Xiaobai to know that you have to find C200 motherboard with e3v5, it will take a long time to promote. So smart manufacturers came. Gigabyte tactfully called the model c232 used in the desktop market - X150.
Xiaobian believes that it is used properly. Just listening to the name, we can know that it is similar to the positioning of B150, and it is easy to accept its "X" particularity - it can adapt to God u; In addition, it is also beneficial to be named in the 100 series, which is convenient for classification. In the future, even after n generations, everyone can know that the 100 series motherboard is adapted to the skylake architecture CPU, avoiding the confusion that the i7-3960x obviously belongs to the second-generation architecture, but has a third-generation name. Therefore, Xiaobian thinks it is better to call this kind of motherboard X150 in the future.
