ASUS unveils the specifications of the M3A motherboard which is based on the AMD 770 chipset. This is a quite simple motherboard with support for quad-core AM2+ processors.

The motherboard has one x16 PCI Express 2.0 slot, three PCI slots, DDR2 1006MHz support, four Serial ATA ports, four USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet and 7.1-channel HD audio.

Features: - AMD AM2+ Quad-Core CPU/AM2 CPU Support
- AMD 770 / SB600 chipset
- HyperTransport 3.0 and PCIe 2.0 Ready
- Dual Channel DDR2 1066
- ASUS Q-Shield

Q-Shield is a feature that all motherboards should have. It's a new I/O plate without the usual "fingers" that stick out and can cut your fingers.
The specially designed ASUS Q-Shield does without the usual "fingers" - making it convenient and easy to install. With better electric conductivity, it ideally protects your motherboard against static electricity and shields it against Electronic Magnetic Interference (EMI).
