A year ago we started a series of articles about the motherboards market. The first article was devoted to the selection of Mid-End products. A year has passed, and it's apparently high time to draw new conclusions. We'd like to remind you of the "game rules". Unlike our reviews of motherboards selected for their original solutions, the primary criterion for picking motherboards here is availability in our local retail stores. In our opinion, it will be interesting to see which motherboards have become really popular and analyze the reasons for that.
