Releases first ‘overclocking’ motherboard in new Quantum Force product line

Beijing, China, August 30th 2007 – FOXCONN today officially announced the launch of its first true overclocking motherboard; MARS will be the first in a new product line called Quantum Force, which will be dedicated to overclocking and gaming enthusiasts.

Based on the Intel® P35 chipset, MARS has been specially tuned for overclocking performance, and has undergone extensive testing and trials by some of the world’s leading overclockers before release to retail customers in September.

“Stunning performance”
Even with an early BIOS edition and standard air cooling, MARS has already posted FSB frequencies of 575MHz and looks set to smash more records in the future.
“The Foxconn board made it to No.8 [in the 3DMark05 Hall of Fame], even I didn’t have time for LN2 [liquid nitrogen] cooling and the P35 chipset doesn’t support Dual x8 or x16 bandwidth on CrossFire. So, for those handicaps the score and results with this board are stunning!” according to leading ‘OCer’ mICKEYmOUSE.
One reason for the great overclocking potential of MARS is the Gladiator BIOS. Specially developed for the Quantum Force product series, it is both user friendly and provides powerful OC options. BIOS features include a voltage multiplier for accessing a much wider range of voltage settings, advanced memory timing configuration and instant overclocking options for novices.
