Jetway launches XBLUE AMD boards

Written by test

A range of cheap and cheerful boards


Jetway has unleashed a slew of new AMD motherboards that work with both AM2, AM2+ and AM3 processors, all under the XBLUE brand name. As the name suggests, all of the motherboards use a blue PCB. Most of the board use AMD chipset, although there's one model with Nvidia chipset.

Three of the boards, namely the XBLUE-78GA3, XBLUE-78VA3 and XBLUE-77A3 all support DDR2 and DDR3 memory. The XBLUE-78GA2, XBLUE-78VA2 and XBLUE-77A2 are pretty much the same boards, sans DDR3 support. The 78GA models features the AMD 780G chipset, the 78VA models use the AMD 780V chipset and finally the 77A models has the AMD 770 chipset.

The odd on out is the XBLUE-N78V which uses the Geforce 8100 or MCP 78V chipset from Nvidia and this is also the only mATX model out of the lot. All the AMD chipset boards are ATX board, although the slot configuration is a bit unusual in that all of the boards have two x16 PCI Express slots, one x1 PCI Express slot and two PCI slots. This is a couple of slots short in comparison to your average ATX motherboard. The XBLUE-N78V has one x16 PCI Express slot, one x1 PCI Express slot and two PCI slots.

All of the AMD 780G/V boards, alongside with the XBLUE-N78V offer HDMI and D-sub connectivity, with the XBLUE-78GA3 and XBLUE-78VA3 also sporting a DVI connector. All models also offer four USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, two PS/2 ports, at least three analog audio jacks, six SATA connectors and a WiFi header (proprietary to Jetway). the XBLUE-N78V also has coaxial S/PDIF out and six analog audio jacks.

If you're interested in more details, we suggest you head over to Jetway's website and have a look at the product spec's of the model you're interested in.
