ECS has today revealed details of Intel P35 'Bearlake' motherboard solutions that it's due to launch at the COMPUTEX exhibition in Taipei next week.

The first solution is the G33T-M. This motherboard allows use of an Intel Core2 Duo system processor running at an FSB speed of up to 1333MHz. Intel Core2 Quad system processors, running at an FSB speed of 1066MHz, are also supported.

ECS explains that the G33T-M has been created with the needs and demands of digital home users at the forefront. Initiatives include the implementation of a lower TDP, thereby ensuring, as ECS states, slimmer and smaller form factors that are typical of digital home designs.

Intel's Quiet System Technology also makes an appearance and the benefits of this are touted as being a less disruptive and quieter solution for home use.

Four Dual Channel DDR2 DIMM slots, supporting up to 8GB of DDR2 memory, provide memory flexibility, while the company also boasts an array of additional capabilities to draw in users.

Onboard graphics functionality comes courtesy of Intel's GMA 3100 solution. However, in order not to limit expansion potential, a single PCI-E X16 slot allows for the later addition of a dedicated graphics card.

On-board eight-channel, high-definition audio is also part of the repertoire and ECS believes that the G33T-M provides the tools to deliver an amazing audio and video experience for the true HD digital home.

Next up is the P35T-A. This powerful solution, also based around Intel's P35 chipset, is claimed to be a cutting-edge design, providing the perfect solution for gamers and performance users.

The P35T-A supports Intel Core2 Duo and Intel Core2 Extreme Quad Core processors for what the company describes as MEGA tasking.

Advanced over-clocking features are also touted, together with support for up to 8GB of Dual Channel DDR2 memory.

Support for the CrossFire multi-GPU gaming platform comes courtesy of two PCI-e x16 slots, one running at x16, the other at x4. Eight-channel HD audio capabilities are included too, giving what ECS says, is realistic and rich sound quality for the latest HD gaming titles.

A host of expansion opportunities are also available. Thanks to the implementation of UEIO (Ultra Expandable I/O Technology), support for six USB 2.0 ports is present. Further connectivity options come courtesy of one eSATA port, three PCI slots and two IEEE 1394a FireWire ports, to name a few.
