Foxconn A78AX entry-level motherboard unveiled

Posted on Tuesday, February 05 2008 @ 00:35:29 CET by

Foxconn unveiled a new entry-level AMD motherboard, the A78AX. This board uses the AMD 770 chipset and features the SB700 southbridge. The motherboard features a 4-phase power design and features the FoxOne Premium technology for easy overclocking.
As the first motherboard manufacturer to use the SB700 southbridge across its entire AMD 7-Series chipset range, FOXCONN are leading the market in providing more connectivity options for mainstream desktop computing. The A78AX has been configured to provide 6 SATAII connectors with RAID functionality, and up to 10 USB2.0 ports.

The A78AX includes HyperTransport™ 3.0 technology and full support for AM2+ Phenom™ processors and socket AM2 Athlon™ and Sempron™ models.

Supporting the latest PCIe Gen2.0 graphics cards, the A78AX includes 1* PCIe x16 Gen2.0 and 2* PCIe x1 Gen2.0 ports, along with 3* PCI slots for older cardbus products. PCIe Gen2.0 technology doubles the available aggregate bandwidth between PCIe Generation 2 cards and the motherboard. This means a Gen2.0 16-lane (x16) link can provide up to 16GB/s of bandwidth; 8GB/s in each direction. PCIe Gen2.0 is backwards compatible, and so existing PCIe “Gen1” cards can be plugged into Gen2.0 slots.
