AMD A75 motherboards cheap as chips

Written by Slobodan Simic

Deal of the Day: ECS A75F-M2 for as little as US $59.99
AMD's desktop Llano offer has finally started to ramp up and we were quite surprised to see that you can actually find a A75 based motherbord for as little as US $59.99 in the US of A, or €55 in the old world.

Of course, these prices will bring you basic A75 motherboard but you still get a decent micro-ATX motherboard with up to four USB 3.0 ports and six SATA 6Gbps ports paired up with a FM1 socket of course. It's worth noting that USB 3.0, or even SATA 6Gbps for that matter is not something you will find on similarly priced Intel platforms.

Newegg.com is currently selling ECS A75F-M2 FM1 motherboard for US $59.99 with rebate ($72.99 without it) while in Europe, you can find the AsRock A75M-HVS motherboard for as low as €55 (the same one sells on Newegg.com for US $69.99). Of course, you can always go for a more serious motherboard and the price can easily climb to even US $149.99.

These low prices means that you can actually get a motherboard and top notch AMD Llano APU, such as the quad-core A8-3850, for less than US $200 and that certainly sounds like a very good deal.

yes. fudo refers to fuad, who is an absolut expert at his subject and i actually enjoy reading a lot, however he is heavily in favour of nvidia (much like charlie over at semiaccurate is with amd).

But Fuad gets money from Nvidia.? We all know that Charlie Demerjian sucks dicks.

Put all the debating aside, this is a really hot deal! i mean, a decent pc for 200$ is really incredible! Really good news for people who are not onto heavy computing as it will provide them a very good bang for buck! Imagine how much cheaper it will become in the future?
