First 740G motherboard spotted

Biostar has another first


Not only did Biostar announce the first GeForce 8200 motherboard, but the company has also launched its AMD 740G board and a 780G board. The two seem to share the same motherboard layout, although the 780G board is part of Biostar's T-series, while the 740G isn't.

The only physical difference between the two boards is a slightly different chipset cooler and solid capacitors on the 780G board, and there's the choice of color, as the 740G model comes in 'cheapo' green while the 780G comes in blue.

The 740G model will be know as the A740G M2+ while the 780G model goes under the name of TA780G M2+. Both boards feature four memory slots, one x16 PCIe 2.0 slot, one x1 PCIe slot,  two PCI slots and six SATA connectors.

Around the back, both boards have a DVI and a D-sub connector, four USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet and three audio jacks for 5.1-channel audio. Not really impressive by today's standards, but it's just about enough to let Biostar get away with it.

You can find the product page for the A740G M2+ here and the TA780G M2+ here.
