ASUS M3A79-CM 760G motherboard pictured

Posted on Wednesday, January 14 2009 @ 22:15:12 CET by

FUD Zilla says AMD will soon debut its 760G IGP chipset. The site found specifications of upcoming 760G motherboard from both ASUS and Gigabyte:
The Asus board goes under the name of M3A76-CM and it appears to be sharing its PCB with a 780G motherboard, as it has some missing parts. As the 760G is a cut-down version of the 780G it lacks some of the features that makes the 780G such a great chipset.

Gigabyte is set to launch the GA-MA76GM-US2 and according to the details listed, the 760G chipset will feature Radeon HD 3000 graphics. This IGP will be clocked slower than the 780G and it lacks support for Hybrid CrossFire and more importantly, it lacks support for the Blu-ray and HD video playback part of the UVD. This means that you won't see HDMI ports on 760G motherboards and it seems like DisplayPort isn't on the cards either.

The 760G chipset is AM2/AM2+ compatible, but as it's limited to DDR2, it looks like AMD won't enable it to work with AM3 processor, at least not for now. The 760G will be paired up with the SB710 which is a simplified version of the SB750 and gone are features such as RAID 5 and AAC.
