Gigabyte made a late addition to its socket FM2 launch lineup, the F2A85XM-D3H. Based on the AMD A85X chipset, the micro-ATX motherboard builds on its feature-set with a few legacy connectivity options. The APU socket is powered by a 5-phase VRM that draws power from an 8-pin EPS connector. It is wired to four DDR3 DIMM slots supporting up to 64 GB of dual-channel DDR3-1866 MHz memory, and a PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slot. The memory is powered by a 2-phase VRM. Other expansion slots include one each of PCI-Express 2.0 x1, PCI-Express 2.0 x4 (long slot, wired to the A85X FCH), amd legacy PCI.

All eight SATA 6 Gb/s ports from the A85X FCH are wired out as internal ports. Display outputs include DVI, D-Sub, and HDMI. The four USB 3.0 ports from the chipset are split in groups of two between the rear panel and on board as headers. Other connectivity includes 6-channel HD audio with 8-channel digital TOSLINK output, gigabit Ethernet, eight USB 2.0 ports, and headers for COM (serial), LPT (parallel), and trusted platform module. The board is driven by dual-UEFI firmware. It is built using Gigabyte's Ultra Durable 4 Classic construction. It is expected to be priced around US $129.99.

I do not agree with you on this. Look at boards like the B75M-D3H, this board is a great product and an amazing value for just 75$

Why are FM2 boards so overpriced? Z77 Extreme4 costs the same...

At $130 the board should have some VRM cooling and on-board power and a CLR CMOS button. This should be a $100 at the most. The A85X chipset is overall unimpressive when compared too A75. All it adds from A75 is 2 more SATA 6GB/s and Raid 5. I'd stick too a $80 A75 FM2 board w/ VRM Heatsinks. Shoot - anything with USB 3.0, SATA 6GB/s and good VRM cooling will cut it for Trinity - i'd assume most people making a Trinity build plan to use on-board graphics therefor they'd be put in fairly basic rigs. At most i'd think someone would hybrid crossfire the iGPU w/ a low end dedicated card.


A little off-topic but I wonder why they even make ATX form factor FM1/FM2 motherboards....We need more Mini ITX FM2 boards...
