Description

APU Features
AMD SoC Athlon and Sempron Series APUs
This powerful and innovative motherboard supports both dual- and quad-core AMD Athlon and Sempron SoC (system-on-a-chip) APUs integrating Radeon™ HD graphics and support for HD video playback. This revolutionary APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) combines high processing power, advanced Microsoft® DirectX 11.1 graphics, and Fusion controller hubs (FCHs) in one small, efficient package. This SoC APU features up to single-channel DDR3 1600/1333 memory, SATA 6Gbit/s and USB 3.0 natively. AMD Athlon/Sempron APUs are the first multi-core x86 SoC with AM1 Series socket solution for entry-level desktops, improving performance by over 50 percent compared to the previous (‘Brazos 2.0’) generation of AMD APUs.

Customer Reviews

No issues, nice value

Reviewed by on

A very basic MB, using mine for an HTPC with the Athlon 5350 and worked with not problems. The only downside is that it has only 2 SATA slots, so sadly it's not ideal for a server you may want to use for a ton of storage.
