Three AM3 and one AM2+

Asus has also posted its full lineup of motherboards based on the AMD 785G chipset, and according to what we could see, Asus will have a total of four motherboards. Three will have support for AMD's AM3 CPUs while there will be a single AM2+ motherboard based on that chipset.

According to a product page at Asus' web site, the M4A785D-M PRO will be available the one that will come in two versions, one for AM2+ and DDR2 memory and one for AM3 and DDR3 memory. These microATX motherboards will have a single PCI-Express x16 slot, one PCI-Express x1 and two plain PCI slots, and will come with integrated ATI Radeon HD 4200 GPU.

As these ones are meant for value part of the market they will not feature the 128MB SidePort memory chip. Both of these motherboards support CPUs with up to 125W of TDP, and feature a 4+1-phase power design.

Next in line are the M4A785TD-M EVO and M4A785TD-V EVO, both pretty much the same except for the fact that the first one is a microATX and the second one is an ATX motherboard, so you can expect the latter one to have additional PCI-Express x16 slot that works in x4 mode, one more PCI-Express x1 and one more PCI slot. Both of these will have the 128MB DDR3 1333 SidePort memory and both feature 8+2-phase power design so that 140W CPUs are supported. In addition to the usual ports, these two will also have a FireWire port as well.

The most interesting part is that, in addition to five SATA ports, the entire 785G lineup from Asus will have an eSATA port, which is good to know as eSATA is becoming ever more popular and it's quite useful.

Some of these motherboards are already listed at our price search engine with prices ranging from €67 for the AM2+ DDR2 M4A785D-M PRO motherboard up to €77,15 for the M4A785TD-V EVO fullATX motherboard. You can check them out here.
