It's practically excellent for a microATX motherboard.
The deciding factor may be its low price, but we actually had no reliable information about it at the time we published this article.
It supports audio output to 8 speakers, but there is no 24-bit audio support and other advantages of High Definition Audio.Bottom line: this model is very interesting due to its chipset, but Foxconn engineers failed to implement any features to attract users' attention.Integrated Controllers, audio, based on the AC'97 codec Realtek ALC850, supporting.1 surround sound audio with front line-in/out and S/pdif-Out jacks.Interestingly, nvidia promotes a series of GeForce chipsets as a basis for home theaters, but the 6150K8MA-8ekrs has only a TV-Out on a bracket that hints at this usage.Windows XP (32-bit windows XP (64-bit).8MB, motherboards chipset.Nvidia GeForce 6150 chipset (GeForce 6150 Northbridge and nForce 430 Southbridge).Windows XP (32-bit windows XP (64-bit).2MB, motherboards nvraid.Connector for a bracket with a FireWire port 1 x CD/DVD audio connector, connectors for analog audio ins and outs on the front panel.
Though the motherboard under review (with the current bios version) does not allow to set dram Timing, which is so important for performance, it was automatically set to 1T in our tests; detailed information on the memory mode is displayed at startup.
As the graphics slot is too close to memory slots, an installed video card may hamper your manipulations with memory modules.
Foxconn WinFast 6150K8MA-8ekrs a Motherboard on nvidia GeForce 6150 (Socket 939).
At least the ITE8712F is supported by uniflash, so it _should_ work.
RightMark Audio Analyzer.5 test application ms dos prompt software and the Terratec DMX 6fire sound card: Frequency response (from 40 Hz to 15 kHz dB: 0,07, -0,65 Good Noise level, dB (A -81,6 Good Dynamic range, dB (A.6 Good THD, sims 2 full neighbourhood game :.038 Good Intermodulation distortion Noise.In this case we decided to limit ourselves to publishing the results of a single motherboard on a different chipset (SiS756 as the performance of AMD64 solutions does not depend on a chipset (to be more exact, only periphery's and probably video card's performance depends.Considering the penny difference between AC'97 and HDA prices (for example, ALC850/ALC880 the choice of Foxconn engineers seems unexplainable.It's very strange that HDA support, which finally found its way to nvidia chipsets, is not included in this motherboard, which is intended for a home multimedia center!The mentioned bios parameters are available in this version, but the viability of non-standard settings hasn't been tested.Foxconn was one of the first to respond to launching the new series of nvidia chipsets.RPM of 2 fans, cPU and board temperatures (by the corresponding embedded sensors).Proprietary technologies and peculiarities SuperBoot PC boot acceleration: the current system parameters are stored to be used at startup in order to skip device initialization and self-diagnostics and proceed right to the OS loader; when the system configuration is changed (or at any boot.
