by on27 June 2011

Two ATX motherboards for now
Asus has revealed two of its first motherboards that will support the upcoming AMD A-Series Llano APUs, the F1A75-V EVO and F1A75-V Pro. Both motherboards use the ATX form factor and will be quite happy to run any of the FM1 socket AMD A-Series APUs.

The feature list includes Asus' own Dual Intelligent Processors 2 technology with EPU and TPU engines as well as the DIGI+ VRM technology with 6+2 phase design, has support for AMD's Dual Graphics and CrossfireX, UEFI BIOS and Asus' AI Suite II. Asus didn't shed much details regarding the specs of the motherboard but it did state that the F1A75-V EVO is the world's first FM1 socket motherboard with dual x8/x8 PCI-Express for AMD CrossfireX support, as well as the fact that the entire range is designed to natively support the USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps.

The only difference that we can visually see is that the F1A75-V EVO features a slightly different PCI slot configuration with three PCI-Express x16 slots, two PCI-Express x1 and two plain PCI slots while the Pro version replaces the last PCI-Express with a plain PCI slot.

In any case, you can expect a lot of A75 motherboards to appear in retail/e-tail as of this week and we expect the official announcement in next few days. The price of these motherboards should rarely go over €100 while most of them should be selling for around around €70 depending on the feature/spec list.
