Jetway NC85-E350-LF Fusion Motherboard Review

AMD Fusion has been something that a lot of the staff at eTeknix have been raving on about, as it shows what the future is to hold in a very small form factor. We’ve already looked at two Fusion boards in the past which gave fantastic results and fit the market they are suited for very well.

Today sees us look at another Fusion based board that seems simple yet effective design from Jetway. We’ve looked at server boards from Jetway in the past, mainly based around the Atom platform, and whilst the features don’t generally scream out, they usually offer a no frills option to consumers who simply want the main features that the chipset offers with a quiet and low-powered operation.

Does the NC85-E350-LF live up to this and how does it rival against the other Fusion boards that we’ve seen in the past?

Let’s get down to it and take a look!

    Looks like the Cons out weight the Pros on this board. I woudn't mind building a HTPC myself, just never got around to it looks like it would be a choice between Asus or Gigabyte. I have had 3 Asus boards and can't fault them.

    Cannot recall reading a review about a Jetway mainboard. But what I really appreciate is your unbiased remarks regarding the 'faults' and oversights' regarding this product and agree that you are being generous. & would not consider to purchase.Not to sure about anyone building a HTPC with this, since many better offerings from Asus, GB & others are available.

    Geez that's an ugly looking board!I wonder if zotac will start making these m-itx AMD boards now. Only seen them make intel atom boards Iirc

    yep that's def a fugly board circa ?? lol pretty sure that Zotac would def get a better grip on this and look a heck of a lot better. cheers to Andy having to take pics of it & share the unbiased generous review.

    Yep, I'm just curious to see if zotac r Intel only. Never seen them have anything to do with an AMD before

    Yeah.. the cons outweigh the pros. Your opinions are greatly appreciated. I'm surprised a board lacking so many key features could stay competitive in the motherboard market

    me too tbh.i think the only reason it is slightly competitive is probably because the price retailers charge is low and people looking for an m-ITX board arent looking for many features
