Just like E3 news, we are starting to get some trickling in of Computex news since the show practically takes place the same time as E3. ECS is going to be showcasing two new motherboards.

The ECS P55H-A is  a brand new Intel P55 based motherboard in the Black series. It supports the upcoming Lynnfield processor which is based off of the Nehalem architecture. These are suppose to be the more affordable i7 Intel chips coming soon. The board also features dual x16 PCIe 2.0 supporting “Auto-Gear Design” that can automatically provide single x16 or dual x8 PCIe bandwidth. Other features such as the support for Intel® Matrix Storage Technology, 14 x USB 2.0 ports, and 6 x SATA 3 Gb/s ports can also be found on this board. Since it's in the Black series, you can expect a lot of other extended features and overclockability.

The ECS A785GM-M will be ECS's first microATX motherboard in the Black series. This is for those running AMD processors and supports up to the Phenom II CPU. On the board is an integrated Radeon HD 4200 GPU that's Windows 7 ready and again, the Black series of features will also be on hand. This motherboard sounds like one that's made for Home Theater PCs.

You can check out both of these brand new boards if you are heading to Computex next week.
