    News - ASRock Anniversary mainboards embrace Intel's unlocked Pentium

    A more budget priced Z97 chipset board, to match the unlocked-multiplier budget CPU.

    ITX and DTX would be nice as well with four memory slots and six sata ports.
    Cannot recall seeing any current ITX board with four memory slots which would be good as RAM is currently fairly pricey particularly in 2 x 8GB pairing.

    I hope reviews on average actually test the Pentium with some of the more demanding newer games though like Thief and Watch Dogs too,although I get the impression it will be a billion Skyrim benchmarks on many of them.

    Edit!!

    BTW,Hexus missed this one from MSI:

    There are some indications that the B85 microcode lockout might not have fully happened also on current B85 motherboards(from Gigabyte at least),so I might have to start a thread for that.

    If true would drop the price of the motherboards required.
