A motherboard of the standard microATX form factor, ready for upcoming processors from the new AMD FX range, featuring the updated AM3+ socket, which not only provides maximum utilization 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 16 gigabytes. This model supports Dual Channel memory architecture and can be used for memory frequencies of 1333 MHz or 1066 according to chipset specifications, and the frequencies of 1866 and 1600 for overclocked configurations.
The chipset also features an ATI Radeon HD 3000 on-board graphics card, which has an analog VGA and a digital DVI output on the rear panel. Alternatively for a separate high-performance graphics or another card, there is one PCI-E Express 2.0 x16 slot (of course, with backward compatibility with the legacy 1.1 versions). Furthermore, the motherboard is equipped with a total of 10 USB 2.0 ports – 6 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, six Serial ATA 3Gb/s connectors with RAID 0,1,10, JBOD support can be used.
One of the unique features of this model is the so-called EPU (Energy Processing Unit). It is the first on-board chip in the world designed for energy saving of the entire system. Other exquisite features include Core Unlocker, Turbo V, Anti-Surge Protection, CPR (CPU Parameter Recall), EZ Flash 2 and CrashFree BIOS 3., It also utilizes 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.
