ECS displayed three of its new motherboards which are based on the Intel's Latest P67 chipset and will support the LGA-1155 "Sandy Bridge" Processors which will be released in 2011.

The P67H2A which is a high-end motherboard will make use of the Nforce 200 chipset beside the P67 chipset which will let the three PCI-e to run at x16 bandwidth (x16, x16, NC or x16, x8, x8) for supporting three way SLI and CrossfireX GPU's. Other features of the high end board consist of USB 3.0, SATA 6 Gb/s ports and Overclocking utilities and tools while connectivity includes dual gigabit Ethernet ports. Other then the 3 Pci-e x16 slots the board comes with 2x PCI-E x1, and 2x PCI.

The P67H2-A2 on the other end is a upper mid-end board with lesser features than the P67H2A but is more user friendly when it comes to overclocking. A rotary-knob on the board has 9 digits, each of the digit stepping the BClk by 5%and will give the ability to overclock the processor by 45%. Other features include two SATA 6 Gb/s ports, 4 SATA 3 Gb/s, dual gigabit Ethernet, 8-channel audio, and USB 3.0 while the expansion slots include x PCI-E x16 (x16, NC or x8, x8), PCI-E x1, and 2x PCI.

Features include 2 SATA 6 Gb/s ports , 3x SATA 3 Gb/s, 2x eSATA 3 Gb/s, 8-channel audio, dual Gigabit Ethernet, and USB 3.0 and expansion slots are one PCI-E x16, 2x PCI-E x1, and a single PCI slot. The released date is the same as expected of the other LGA 1155 motherboards which is 2011.
