This small-format Micro-ATX motherboard is ready for processors from the new AMD FX range, featuring the updated AM3+ socket, which not only provides maximum utilisation of new 32nm Llano and Bulldozer processors, but also offers backward compatibility with older Phenom II, Athlon II and Sempron models. The motherboard is based on the AMD 760G (780L)/SB710 chipset, which is connected to a memory controller with 2 slots supporting DDR 3 memories with a maximum capacity of 16GB. This model supports Dual Channel memory architecture and can be used for clock speeds of 1333MHz or 1066 according to chipset specifications, and the clock speeds of 1866Mhz and 1600Mhz for overclocked configurations.
The motherboard also features an ATI Radeon HD 3000 on-board graphics card, which has an analogue VGA on the rear panel. Alternatively, for a separate high-performance graphics card, there is one PCI-E Express 2.0 x16 slot (with backward compatibility with the legacy 1.1 versions, of course). Furthermore, the motherboard is equipped with a total of 8 USB 2.0 ports – 4 via the internal connector and 4 on the rear panel. Naturally, it also includes an eight-channel Realtek ALC 887 High Definition Audio on-board soundcard with three audio jacks. For communication, an NIC Realtek 8111E gigabit network adapter is prepared. For hard and optical drives, you can use six Seria ATA 3Gb/set connectors with RAID 0,1,10, JBOD support.
A unique feature of this model is the EPU (Energy Processing Unit). The EPU is the world’s first total system power management located on a motherboard, boosting its energy efficiency. Other exquisite features include Core Unlocker, Turbo V, Anti-Surge Protection, CPR (CPU Parameter Recall), EZ Flash 2, and CrashFree BIOS 3., It also utilises UEFI BIOS, a standard feature of modern motherboards. Also noteworthy is the fact that the motherboard uses only high-quality conductive polymer capacitors with great durability and improved thermal characteristics.
