Where it does differ from the norm is the full compliment of digital and analogue video connections. Does this mainstream computing solution, which majors on features and efficiency rather than outright grunt, truly have what it takes to deliver a great high definition experience? That translates into support for all the latest AMD processors, including single, dual and quad-core chips. To put it another way, AMD reckons the this chipset is capable of offload much if not all of the work involved in decoding high definition movie disks from the CPU. In the home theatre PC environment, noise is an unwelcome distraction.

But the progression is from painful to extremely mediocre. Which, frankly, is fine given that the board already has pretty much all you’ll ever need.
With 40 stream processors ams the capability to pump four pixels per cycle, on paper it’s comfortably the most powerful integrated 3D graphics core yet. Getting hold of the right ingredients is another matter, however.
As you’d hope for an HTPC-centric board, it’s entirely passively cooled and hence essentially silent. The AMD G and SB operate more energy efficiently than their predecessors, so the chipsets are passively cooled with simple aluminum heatsinks. But whatever the case, odds are it’ll be cheap.
If it’s raw performance you crave, Intel’s chips currently have the edge. At idle the entire platform – chipset, graphics core, CPU, memory, the lot – consumes just 53 Watts. Granted, the integrated Radeon HD core is the best of its kind, but it still can’t cope with modern PC games even at modest resolutions like x pixels.
To put it another way, AMD reckons the mitherboard chipset is capable of offload much 708g not all of the work involved in decoding high definition movie disks from the CPU.

Where it does differ from the norm is the full compliment of digital and analogue video connections. But if the combined grunt of the G chipset and e CPU is unexciting, try this for size. And we know how that turned out Quiet, compact and yet extremely capable. You can totally forget about goodies like anti-aliasing. Support for discreet graphics is motheeboard by 16 full speed PCI Express 2.

For Great high-definition feature set Includes hardware Blu-ray decode Extremely low power consumption. That’s a great characteristic for a platform designed to mtherboard inconspicuously in the background. Especially if pricing is a sensitive issue for you.

In the home theatre PC environment, noise is an unwelcome distraction. Since the DVI shares the controller as the HDMI port, and both cannot be used at the same time, most manufacturers choose to drop one altogether.
But do yourself a favour. That’s the recipe for a great home theatre PC. As for the new Athlon 64 e CPU, it’s a dual-core chip with an exceptionally low 45 Watt power rating. On paper, there’s little doubting that the G motherboard chipset has one of – if not the – most comprehensive feature sets of any mainstream integrated solution.
Startlingly low power consumption, full hardware decode for high definition video disks i. The board looks a lot better than the old purple monsters we’re accustomed to. Mainstream multimedia machine On paper, there’s little doubting that the G motherboard chipset has one of – if not the – most comprehensive feature sets of any mainstream integrated solution.
