Looking for a budget motherboard for a cheap AMD FM2 based system? Then Gigabyte have released just the motherboard for you. Gigabyte’s new F2A75M-DS2 motherboard supports socket FM2 AMD CPUs and APUs including the latest Richland platform. This motherboard isn’t exactly aimed at the overclocker as it features a relatively “low-end” 4+1 phase VRM for the FM2 socket and memory. It also used a compact Micro-ATX form factor and a brown PCB.
The two memory slots support up to 32GB of dual channel 2133MHz memory and the motherboard is equipped with a single PCI Express 16X generation 2 slot, a PCI Express X1 slot and a legacy PCI. There are four upward facing SATA 6GB/s ports provided by the A75 chipset and the board also supports four USB 3.0, two via the rear I/O and two via a header. 6-channel HD audio, gigabit Ethernet, PS/2 keyboard/mouse combo, and a number of USB 2.0/1.1 ports finish the rest of the connectivity. The board uses an AMI Aptio UEFI BIOS and has Gigabyte’s Dual UEFI technology. Pricing will be around $60.
