ECS Llano board tips up online

Written by


First glimpse of AMD’s new platform
A German site has managed to score a rather interesting snapshot of ECS’ upcoming A75F-A motherboard for AMD’s upcoming Fusion processors.

The picture offers a rare glimpse into AMD’s new Llano platform, which will use the new FM1 socket. The most obvious design change is a new cooler retention mechanism, but new FM1 boards should still be compatible with AM3+ CPU coolers.

The full ATX board is not what we would call impressive, but bear in mind that most Llano parts will be aimed at mainstream users anyway and the main selling point will be value for money rather than enthusiast features. The board packs a single x16 PCIe slot, one x4 slot and two x1 slots, along with three PCI slots. It also features two USB 3.0 ports and six USB 2.0 ports, as well as eSATA, Ethernet, HDMI, DVI and D-sub.

AMD is expected to introduce Llano products in a series of launch events starting in early June. The new platform looks rather promising and we will probably see dozens of affordable ATX and mATX boards in retail by summertime.

ASRock released an FM1 board as well, and has better specs... 8 SATA 6 Gb/s ports, 2 eSATA, 6 USB 3.0 ports, 3 PCIe x16 (x16+x4/x8+x8+x4), DDR3-1866. (TPU)

That's one funny looking mounting system they got there.

Here is another FM1 board:

Actually that mounting system looks a lot like the one used on socket 603/604 Intel XEONS.

It's the same AM2/AM2+/AM3 mounting system but without the plastic sides. They figured out that most after market coolers mount with screws and the less weighty ones fit fine on just that AM3+ system. Plus better airflow;
