Gigabyte A75M-UD2H FM1 Llano Motherboard Review
As we already know, Bulldozer is what everyone is waiting for, but on the way saw a couple of stop gaps for AMD Fusion, the first being Brazos which gave us a low-powered APU that combined the best of both CPU and GPU and still to this date, we believe is perfect for HTPC or server usage. In fact, we believe that so much that we have the Asus E35M1-M Pro powering our server, whilst the Gigabyte E350N-USB3 sits comfortably in our HTPC so we certainly found a use for them.
Next step before Bulldozer comes along, was to give the CPU performance of today, with the added ability of GPU functionality and that's where Llano and the LYNX platform comes into play.
We already took at look at the F1A75-M Pro from Asus and whilst we were happy with the overall outcome, the pricing could have been a major factor. Now that the official launch has settled and retailers are stocking the boards and processors, we are keen to see how Gigabyte's offering of the A75M-UD2H will perform, and based off the price, it's already won in that department.
