Albatron debuts its KI780G Mini-ITX motherboard, this new mainboard features the AMD 780G chipset with integrated Radeon HD 3200 graphics and supports the latest Phenom processors, as long as the chip has a power consumption below 65W.
AM2+ socket and Phenom Processors
Recently, AMD had upgraded the AM2 socket to what is called the “AM2+” socket, which allows for powerful Phenom 4-core and 3-core processors. When used with Phenom processors, the HyperTransport transfer rates can reach up to a sizzling 3 GHz! The KI780G is able to handle up to 65W processors.
Graphics – Bluray, 3D gaming and dedicated on-board GFX memory
Integrated graphics has come a long way and the AMD 780G with its integrated ATI HD3200 graphics engine is “proof in the pudding”! Used with the latest AMD CPUs, the KI780G graphics is capable of handling even the most demanding, hi-content Bluray labels.
As for serious 3D gaming, the KI780G provides a PCIe X16 slot which employs four of the lanes but can still accept any PCIe X16 VGA card. As the 4-lane bandwidth is not as important as having a good GPU for 3D gaming, the KI780G has been shown to handle hardcore 3D games as long as it is used with an adequate VGA card.
Another nice feature on this board is “128MB side-port DDR2” memory dedicated for use with the VGA card, increasing 3D performance by 10% and eliminating the need for the graphics system to borrow shared system memory.
Home Sweet Home Theatre PC – Audio, Connectibility, Internet and Storage
In addition to the great graphics facilities, the KI780G has everything you need to build your Home Theatre PC; a complete set of monitor connectors including HDMI; full 8-channel audio capabilities plus SDPIF in/out; and up to 10 USB 2.0 channels for the rest of your hi-tech gadgets. You can store all of your pictures and videos on up to four SATA II drives while protecting your valuable data with RAID disk management.
