Biostar TA75A+ Socket FM1

Biostar TA75A+ Socket FM1

AMD A75 Chipset »

Introduction



After being impressed with Biostar's TZ68A+ motherboard, an entry-level product that near matches high-end capabilities, we contacted Biostar to see what else they had cooking, and a few days later, we found the TA75A+ on our doorstep, ready for action. The TA75A+ is based on AMD's Fusion APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) platform, featuring the A75 "Hudson" chipset, and supporting FM1 socket "Lynx" APUs, both recently released to the market. The Biostar TA75A+, and the matching AMD APUs, aren't intended to be top performance products, but rather seek to raise the baseline of affordable performance, tying in all recent connectivity, plus decent 2D and 3D video acceleration. We strap the TA75A+ into our test station, and put it through the paces.
