AMD Llano APU’s made some buzz yesterday when pricing and details leaked out about the AMD Llano A-8, A-6 and A-4 APU’s. Today it looks like motherboard pictures have started to leak out as we have come across an image of Gigabytes upcoming FM1 Socket based motherboard which will support the AMD Llano APU. The board that was leaked is the Gigabyte GA-A75-UD4H and it uses the upcoming AMD A75 chipset. The board looks pretty nice and we can’t wait to see how this mainstream platform by AMD performs!
Gigabyte’s top socket FM1 motherboard is called GA-A75-UD4H. It’s a return to the company’s signature blue Ultra Durable 3 PCB. The FM1 socket is powered by a 10-phase VRM, it is wired to four DDR3 DIMM slots supporting dual-channel DDR3-1866 MHz memory. Expansion slots include two PCI-Express 2.0 x16 (x8/x8 when both are populated), supporting AMD CrossFireX and NVIDIA 2-way SLI; three PCI-Express x1, and two PCI. The A75 single-chip chipset handles all the storage connectivity on this board, with five SATA 6 Gb/s internal ports, and one eSATA 6 Gb/s. Display connectivity includes DVI, D-Sub, and HDMI. Other connectivity includes eight USB 3.0 ports driven by three controllers, including four ports by header, gigabit Ethernet, 8+2 channel HD audio driven by Realtek ALC889 CODEC, and FireWire. Expect this board to be out in mid-June.
