10 Low Budget AMD Motherboards

Insidehardware has tested out 10 budget AMD motherboards. They test out the following.

Biostar A780G M2+ SE
Biostar GF8100 M2+ TE
J&W JW-RS7800UVD-AM2+
J&W JW-RS7800UVD-MKII
Gigabyte MA74GM-S2h
Gigabyte M720-US3
Gigabyte MA770-UD3
ASUS M4A78-EM
ASUS M4N78 Pro
ASUS M4N78

After all these motherboards reviewed we should select the best one or two, but this proved to be daunting task. First of all, some motherboard models don’t have integrated graphics cards, so it makes hard to determine price/performance ratio. We decided that integrated graphics cards have impact on final price tag and we picked those that offer best price/performance ratio.

ASRock M3A770DE Review

Tweaktown reviews the ASRock M3A770DE.

So far we have already tested X58, P55, 790GX and 785G boards from this company and all have been mighty impressive. Each board has been for a specific segment; X58 for Intel Extreme, P55 for Intel Mainstream, 790GX for high-end AMD and 785G for AMD Mainstream and there are no shortage of models either with two or more boards under each chipset.

Asrock M3A790GXH/128M Review

OCinside has reviewed the Asrock M3A790GXH/128M. You can pick it up here for $115.

The ASRock M3A790GXH/128M motherboard for AMD Socket AM3 processors and DDR3 memory modules is equipped with the AMD 790GX chipset, offers an enormously high performance and can be very high overclocked. The DirectX 10 capable onBoard HD 3300 graphics unit is amazing fast like the previous AMD 790GX ASRock DDR2 motherboard and achieved the so far the highest benchmark values of the integrated graphics processor solutions.

DFI Blood Iron 785G Motherboard

Fudo details the new Blood Iron 785G motherboard from DFI. It looks like a nice micro ATX option. You can search for prices on 785G boards here.

The motherboard features DFI's ABS II CPU "auto upgrade technology", or simply an auto overclocking and settings feature. It also comes with 128MB of Sideport memory for its integrated HD 4200 graphics and a single PCI-Express x16 slot if you want to go Hybrid CrossfireX.

MSI 785GM-E65 Review

Bjorn3D has reviewed the MSI 785GM-E65. You can pickt it up here for $93.

AMD's 785G is an interesting chipset that AMD brings to the market at this time where the industry is anxiously awaits the 8 series chipset that is rumors to be out sometimes next year. It is certainly not a revolutionary chip but rather an evolution from its 780G. This is actually not a bad idea upgraded HD4200 graphics with new UVD, support for socket AM3 processor, and HDMI 1.3. However, we are disappointed to find that it still lack support for multi-channel LPCM output over HDMI and TrueHD and DTS-HD audio bit-streaming. What is worse is that AMD has yet to fix its poor SATA transfer rate and broken ACHI drivers.
