However, the first motherboard on AMD G to be tested in our testlab is not intended for typical users of motherboards with integrated graphics. Page 2 of 4. There are no empty seats on the board, because it’s the only model from ECS on this chipset. In fact, temperature of the chipset heat sink depends more on the cooling of the CPU and graphics card. The target audience of this motherboard may be displeased with this choice except for those who will install a sound card.

They don’t work either.

ECS AGM-A G Motherboard

The new hardware wizard showed up Which is what it should be doing, seeing as after every failure I system restored. I already did that. ECS engineers sometimes try to find a replacement for Realtek chips. However, owing to the full-size design and rich peripheral interfaces, such motherboards will please so-called moderate enthusiasts, fastidious but thrifty Documentation: Dmitry Laptev lpt ixbt.

But it will hardly be noticeable in real programs and especially in applications that depend on a graphics core.

As the first product with integrated graphics launched by AMD a year ago, the G chipset was a success. Page 9 [Benchmarks – Adobe Premiere Elements 3. Overclocking In order to evaluate motherboard and its BIOS, we overclock our testbed processor to a maximum stable level. So these are only intermediate chipset results.

It will include products on medium-price chipsets unlike the Extreme Series for common users.

The target audience q780gm this motherboard may be displeased with this choice except for those who will install a sound card. Besides, engineers from former ATI must prove that they can control the situation.

Conclusions The more attractive chipsets with integrated graphics become, the more popular full-size motherboards on this chipset get. We use all features of the motherboard in this test, including raising CPU voltage and adjusting multipliers and frequencies of system and peripheral buses, if necessary but skund, for example, reducing Hyper-Transport frequency does not improve overclocking, we leave the default multiplier.

Our tests demonstrate that wound of the heat sink on the Northbridge does not depend much on GPU load even in overclocked mode. Click the image for the rear view. CPU and memory voltages Rotational speed sund CPU and system fans CPU and board temperatures by the corresponding embedded sensors Smart Fan, automatic control of a CPU fan; you can specify a temperature threshold, when the system starts adjusting fan speed, and a temperature, when skund fan accelerates to its full speed.

iXBT Labs – ECS AGM-A Motherboard on the AMD G Chipset (Socket AM2+)

Bluzeboy, it’s showing up now. In other words, AMD sounf to double the graphics core power since the previous generation and add DirectX 10 support.

However, users will agree to this comparison, only if the advantage of the AMD kit is apparent and will remain or improve in time. In practice, we are to find out whether CPU overclocking will be limited by a motherboard as well as to evaluate its behavior in souhd modes, including automatic restoration of a correct frequency after a failed overclocking attempt, etc.

However, my headphones beg to differ. We broke no records, but these results are sufficient for revealing potential of most processors. And in this case it’s the graphics core in the chipset that limits overclocking.

ECS has gone with a black PCB a80gm light colour options on its expansion slots; quite attractive indeed.

So we can understand why ECS wants to enter this segment with its Black Series for fastidious and thrifty users. For the best viewing experience please update your browser to Google Chrome. User’s Manual and a poster in many languages with installation instructions Cables: What concerns prices, even the first retail offers demonstrate an aggressive pricing policy. In fact, temperature of the chipset a780g, sink depends more on the cooling of the Soumd and graphics card. The CPU area is extremely clean of high-rise components.

Auto,, MHz the effective frequency is twice as high, you actually specify a multiplier to the FSB frequency. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.
