The new motherboard from Gigabyte turns heads with its great specs and a low price tag
Gigabyte has launched another AMD powered motherboard that comes packed with a lot of great stuff.The GA-F2A85XM-HD3 comes with the “Ultra Durable 4 Classic” suite, which includes improved humidity, electrostatic, power failure and high temperature protection.
The new motherboard comes with triple monitor support via Dual-Link DVI, HDMI and D-Sub ports. UEFI 3D BIOS is also included and offers a user-friendly, mouse navigation GUI, making BIOS configuring easier and more exciting for novice or power users.
The most interesting feature of all is the AMD Dual Graphics, which allows users to boost 3D graphics performance by adding an additional discrete AMD Radeon HD 6000 series graphics card to the system. This means that the latest games will run silky-smooth at 60fps or more.
Also outstanding are the two DDR3-1866 memory slots and the eight SATA 6.0 Gbps ports. This being said, the maximum RAM memory limit is set to 64GB, and can be supported by using 16GB memory modules.
The one thing users complained about is the lack of VRM cooling for overclocking. Unless you don’t that, the new motherboard will be OK.
The latest drivers for this piece of hardware are a click away. The link below will get you to the complete list.
