The ECS A780GM-A ‘Black Series’ motherboard is the first motherboard by the designers at ECS that uses the recently released AMD 780G and SB700 chipsets. Unlike the micro-ATX boards that we have looked at in the past, this is a full size ATX board. The A780GM-A has the usual laundry list that any 780G board should have with support for Hybrid Graphics, UVD 2.0, DirectX 10, PCI Express 2.0, HDMI/HDCP, Phenom support, HT 5200 MT/s with Hyper Transport 3.0 technology links and four memory slots that can handle DDR2 1066MHz memory kits. The board is impressive, but since we have already covered the AMD 780G chipset in another article, we will move on and take a look at this new board by ECS.
Let’s take a look at the ECS A780GM-A motherboard layout.
