It's been ages since we've seen a board from Jetway here at TweakTown and I would probably go as far to say that this is the first time I've actually been hands on with a Jetway board. So today we're looking at the Jetway HI09-Z and while the model number doesn't really tell us anything, I can confirm it's an 1155 socket motherboard based on the Z68 chipset.
While it's the first time in a long time since we've looked at a Jetway board, it will follow the same format we normally would with any other motherboard. That means we'll start by looking at the package Jetway is offering. Once that's done we'll look over the board itself before checking out the BIOS before moving onto our testbed and the overclocking ability of the board.
Once we've done all that, it's of course time to see what kind of performance we're able to extract from the board. But first as we mentioned, let's check out what's going in the HI09-Z package we've got today.
Looking at the front and back of the box, you can see very little is going on with just mention of the chipset and the fact it's part of the Hummer series and that the board is designed and built by Martin Chang. A quick Google tells us that Martin Chang is the R & D engineer for the Hummer Studio series. It will be interesting to see if this means anything or if it's just a name on the box.
Moving inside the package, you won't find anything too out of the ordinary. We've got a user manual, driver CD, four SATA cables, Molex to e-SATA convertor and a back shield. Everything you'd expect from a motherboard and nothing more really.
