AMD Brazos drops to US $99.99

by on14 July 2011

Deal of the day: AMD E-350 APU
While checking out some prices at we noticed that some AMD Hudson D1, and even one AMD Hudson M1 based ITX motherboard dropped down to US $99.99. Of course, these motherboards are paired with AMD's 1.6GHz clocked E-350 APU with Radeon HD 6310 graphics and certainly look like a good deal if you are building your own HTPC.

Foxconn's AHD1S-K motherboard and ECS HDC-I2 are both selling for US $99.99 and although these are based on the AMD Hudson D1 chipset they have one good side as they are cooled by a large heatsink rather than a heatsink/small fan combination.

One deal that caught our eye is the ASRock E350M1 that is based on Hudson M1 chipset that supports up to 16GB of DDR3 1066 memory and even comes with four SATA 6Gbps ports. This one is currently available for US $99.99 after mail-in rebate.

In case you are looking for something more you can always go for ASRock E350M1/USB3 that adds two USB 3.0 ports, eSATA port and ASRock's XFast USB tech. Of course, this one is a bit more expensive but was dropped from US $129.99 to US $114.99.

In case you are living in Europe, the cheapest A50M motherboard with E-350 APU is currently going for around 80-ish euros and can climb up to around €125 in case you are going for a fully equipped one, like the Zotac's Fusion ITX or Asus' E35M1-I Deluxe that even have integrated 802.11gbn WiFi.

You can check out all the motherboards over at and you can find the European ones here.
