Asus M3A78-EMH HDMI Motherboard ReviewFri, Apr 25, 2008 - 12:00 AM
Introduction and Specs
I typically do not think of integrated graphics on a motherboard and Asus at the same time. In fact, looking back at the number of reviews that I have done over the years, I am not sure that I even had one board that was in this category. That does not mean that they have not made one, it just means that they are not usually the boards that anyone wants to look at from Asus. Most end users would typically equate the name Asus with high end performance boards. Asus is also known to be one of the first to market with new boards that are based on new chipsets. With all that in mind, we do have a motherboard that is targeted to the budget and HTPC crowd. The Asus M3A78-EMH HDMI is based on the 780G/SB700 chipsets and is a socket AM2+ board, so it supports (in theory) AMD’s Phenom line of processors. This is not the first AMD 780G motherboard that Legit Reviews has gotten to look as we have already taken a look at the ECS A780GM-A and Gigabyte MA78GM-S2H motherboards.
So let’s take a look at this integrated graphics solution from Asus and see what they bring to the table. First off, a look at the specs…
