ECS 880G full-ATX motherboard pictured

Posted on Thursday, April 22 2010 @ 00:06:01 CEST by


Bit Tech published photos and details of ECS' upcoming full-size AMD 880G motherboard.
While it's clearly a budget board, there's still a SB850 Southbridge, as opposed to the older SB750 that some other motherboard companies are considering for a couple of dollars saving. This means you get SATA 6Gbps ports, and more USB 2 ports. There's no USB 3 integrated however - ECS is instead bundling USB 3 with many new motherboards as an extra PCI-E x1 card. It makes sense, because ECS does very well in South America and other developing countries that still demand legacy over latest - so the optional USB 3 card will probably not be sold in those regions.

The 880G is largely identical to the previous 785G chipset - it's still fabricated by TSMC as is evident by the "Made in Taiwan" stamp. Despite the 3+1 power phases the board will have support for upcoming 6-core CPUs, and will also include MOSFET heatsinks, which are not photographed.
