GIGABYTE Rolls Out A75 Motherboards For AMD Llano A8 and A6 APUs

GIGABYTE TECHNOLGY Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, today launched its latest series of motherboards supporting the new AMD A75 series chipsets, and the latest AMD A-Series APUs (codenamed Llano) that are set to take the world by storm with the best graphics performance ever seen on an onboard graphicsprocessor. GIGABYTE A75 based motherboards offer DIY PC builders and integrators a new world of 3D and multimedia performance with the most scalable, and best value upgrade path imaginable.

"At GIGABYTE, we are delighted to bring to market this new and exciting motherboard range, delivering our renowned durability and exceptional feature support to AMD's ground breaking APU technology," commented Henry Kao, VP of Worldwide Service and Marketing at GIGABYTE. "As well as bringing AMD A-Series technology to DIY users who demand excellent gaming and multimedia performance on a budget, these motherboards also offer a compelling upgrade path that includes Dual Graphics configurations."

GIGABYTE A75 Series Feature Highlights
AMD A-Series APU Support: GIGABYTE A75 series boards features an AMD A75 'Hudson' chipset supporting the latest 32 nanometer AMD A-Series APUs or Accelerated Processor Units. These processors are the first ever to combine a DX11-capable, high performance graphics processor with a choice of a dual or quad core CPU in one silicon die, offering a 3D gaming and multimedia experience similar to a discrete graphics configuration.

AMD A-Series Graphics: Discrete-class Onboard Graphics: Supporting Microsoft DirectX 11, OpenGL 4.1 and OpenCL 1.1 standards, AMD A-Series graphics deliver a 3D gaming experience similar to entry-level discrete graphics card solutions, with 3DMark Vantage (Performance setting) scores of around 4000 points. Using GIGABYTE's Easy Tune 6 utility, users can overclock the AMD A-Series APU to gain further performance enhancements over stock settings, offering 3DMark Vantage (Performance setting) scores of over 6000 points.

AMD Dual Graphics: Unrivalled Upgradability: The AMD A75 series platform showcases AMD Dual Graphics technology, allowing users to further boost 3D graphics performance by adding an additional discrete AMD Radeon HD 6000 series graphics card to the system. This unique Dual Graphics technology means users can enjoy higher frame rates on the latest gaming titles, utilizing the processing power of both discrete and onboard graphics processors.

GIGABYTE Super4 Motherboards: All GIGABYTE A75 series motherboards are part of the GIGABYTE Super4 motherboard range, and as such are equipped with the very best components and a comprehensive range of unique features that guarantee flawless system stability and extended product longevity without compromising on performance, features and device connectivity.

Super Safe:
  • DualBIOS 3TB+ HDD Support (Hybrid EFI Technology)
  • One Fuse per USB Port
  • 50,000 hr. Solid Capacitors
GIGABYTE Super Safe includes features that guard against system malfunction and ensure extended system longevity, including GIGABYTE DualBIOS to ensure that you never experience system failure due to BIOS corruption. Additionally, each USB port has its own dedicated power fuse that prevents unwanted USB port failure, helping to protect USB connected devices from malfunction and safe guard your important data during transfer. All Super4 motherboards also use solid capacitors that guarantee system longevity with a minimum 50,000 hr lifespan.

Super Speed:
  • Ultra Durable design
  • 3 x USB Power Boost + On/Off Charge
GIGABYTE Super Speed ensures that you’re always on the cusp of PC performance, data transfer and device charging speeds. GIGABYTE 3x USB power means better device compatibility and faster charging on USB connected devices like portable storage devices without needing to use two USB ports. The additional power provided by 3 x USB Power allows iPad, iPhone and iPod devices to charge up to 40% faster compared to standard USB implementations, while On/Off charge allows fast device charging even when your PC is on standby or turned off.

Super Savings:
  • Lower RDS(on) MOSFETs
  • Lower CPU Zone Temperature
  • High Power-Efficiency
All GIGABYTE Super4 motherboards are equipped with the very best quality components that ensure that you PC is running at maximum power efficiency. Lower RDS(on) MOSFETs reduce energy wastage through unnecessary residual heat dissipation. This amounts to tangible energy savings which are beneficial for both end-users and the environment without impacting system performance.

Super Sound:
  • High-end 108dB HD Audio (3.5x better audio quality than standard PC audio solutions)
As the HD multimedia revolution continues to gain momentum, so too must hardware standards in audio quality. All GIGABYTE Super4 motherboards offer excellent 7.1 surround sound audio backed by a proprietary converter that is able to achieve 108dB noise ratio (SNR) playback quality. This means that users will enjoy a better audio experience with lower levels of noise and hiss when enjoying the latest HD content.

They went with a traditional BIOS instead of UEFI? I wonder if there was a reason for it. Are they just reserving that particular feature for their high-end AM3+ socket boards?

I thought that am3+ still used the old bios also? anyway im more interested in the asrock models. more feature packed, should be cheaper and are uefi.

Nope it is up the board manufactures. ASRock used the UEFI on every last one of their A75 and 990 boards so far. Some companies save it for the high end (like here). I agree as ASRock will offer the UEFI on even their cheap, mATX boards makes them a little more appealing to me. Though I am bit of a fan of the MSI Winki OS. It is an interesting and very power efficient idea.

Yeah what I meant was I'm pretty sure Gigabytes am3+ boards are all standard bios.

Oh, you could be right. There are a number of OC and BIOS tools they would have to abandon or complete redesign to get them to support UEFI. So this may be a case of them sticking with their in-house software brands instead of switching over.
