This futuristic motherboard is based on latest LGA 1366 socket of Intel i7
CPU family. Two features that stand out in this motherboard are DrMOS and APS.
Both these features help save power consumption, and at the same time enhance
performance. DrMOS has integrated Driver IC, Top-MOSFET and Bottom-MOSFET that
has three features: GreenPower technology for saving power, XpressCool feature
for low operational temperature, and RapidBoost for stable over clocking. To
control power demand, Eclipse comes with Active Phase Switching for CPU, Memory
and Chipset that results in efficient power loading. However, the motherboard
does not support Windows 98/ME.

Our test setup included Intel’s i7 3.20 GHz CPU, 2 GB DDR3 RAM, ATI Radeon
4800 series graphics card, and Seagate Barracuda 320 GB 7200 rpm HDD. We started
with 3D Mark 06 and POV-Ray to check graphical capability of this motherboard
along with graphics card, and it scored 13536 and 91846 respectively making it a
good buy for gamers. Scores for CineBench R10 and Memory latency were 9499 and
74ns respectively, again making this board quite efficient. Overall performance
measured using PC Mark 05 was excellent with 9354. When we compared this
motherboard with Asus P6T Deluxe (reviewed in Jan 09) we didn’t find any drastic
difference

Bottomline: With a price tag of 22k, this motherboard is built for
future. Go for this if you are willing to buy Intel’s i7 CPU family.
