Gigabyte A75M-UD2H FM1 Llano Motherboard Review



/ 5 years ago

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.

(Note 2) The 1866 MHz memory speed is supported only when one or two DDR3 1866 MHz DIMMs are installed. It is not supported when four DIMMs are installed. (Dual channel memory mode must be enabled when installing two DIMMs.)

(Note 3) The DVI-D port does not support D-Sub connection by adapter.

(Note 4) The resolution of 2560×1600 is supported only when Dual Link DVI mode is enabled.

(Note 5) For optimum performance, if only one PCI Express graphics card is to be installed, be sure to install it in the PCIEX16 slot.

(Note 6) Actual transfer rate is dependent on the device being connected.

(Note 7) Whether the APU/system fan speed control function is supported will depend on the APU/system cooler you install.

(Note 8) Available functions in EasyTune may differ by motherboard model.[/TD]

[TD=align: left]Remark[/TD]
[TD]

  1. Due to different Linux support condition provided by chipset vendors, please download Linux driver from chipset vendors’ website or 3rd party website.
  2. Most hardware/software vendors no longer offer support for Win9X/ME/2000/XP SP1/SP2. If drivers are available from the vendors, we will update them on the GIGABYTE website.

    Andy, just asking… Were you able to use CF mode, with the integrated+discrete graphics?

  • aruffell

    Yeah that's what the charts show 🙂

  • Leo Bien Durana

    Oh, I see… Just thought that it's only the A75M-UD2H+HD6670, not the AMD Llano A8-3850(HD6550D)+HD6670 🙂
