ASRock website shows off HTPC with Sandy Bridge
A newly-discovered web page for an HTPC from ASRock reveals the computer has quietly taken an update to Sandy Bridge-based Intel processors. The Vision 3D 2nd-gen Series computer can be had with Core i3, i5 or i7 CPUs and also sports switchable 1GB GeForce GT 540M graphics, 4GB of RAM and a HDMI 1.4a port, in addition to four USB 3.0 jacks.
NVIDIA's 3D Vision system is likewise onboard as the name suggests, and a Blu-ray drive is standard. Due to its mission, a media remote is included. The built-in 2.5-inch hard drive spins at 7,200RPM.
The PC hasn't been officially announced yet, and its release dates or prices are thus unknown.
