ASUS Announces New F1A75 Series Motherboards James White July 2, 2011 Press Release ASUS joins the ranks of AMD FM1 board manufacturers with an entire new lineup of AMD based motherboards sporting the A75 chipset. The lineup will be the Asus F1A75-M PRO, F1A75-V PRO, F1A75-M, and F1A75-M LE which offer ASUS’s award winning UEFI BIOS and second generation Dual Intelligent Processors 2 technology. I am glad to see Asus is not holding back any of their top tier tech for entry level build A75 chipset and AMD APU’s. The AMD® A75 Hudson FCH (Fusion Controller Hub) natively supports the SATA 6Gb/s storage interface with RAID 0/1/10, up to 4 USB 3.0, and up to 12 legacy USB 2.0 lines natively. This saves space on Micro-ATX boards such as the F1A75-M and F1A75-M LE as addition controller chips are not need to include features like USB 3.0 or SATA 6Gb/s. The chipset still remains flexible enough to allow additional control chips for larger ATX motherboards as needed though Asus’s line does not seem to have them. While anyone can argue motherboard are often a lot alike, they would be completely wrong. Asus current has the best UEFI BIOS hands down. It is the small details and quality a company like Asus brings to the table that makes them stand out. [hide-this-part morelink=”Full Press Release”] Continuing its leadership in innovation, design and performance, ASUS the number 1 and most awarded motherboard brand is excited to announce a new lineup of innovative AMD® based motherboards that support the new A75 chipset and AMD® A-& E2- series Accelerated Processor Unit (APU) with AMD Radeon™ HD 6000 Series Graphics. This revolutionary APU combines processing power and advanced Microsoft® DirectX 11 graphics in one small, energy-efficient design to enable accelerated performance and an industry-leading visual experience. The F1A75-V EVO, F1A75-V PRO and F1A75-M Pro models offer ASUS’s award winning UEFI BIOS plus second generation Dual Intelligent Processors 2 technology, comprised of the TurboV Processor Unit (TPU) and Energy Processor Unit (EPU) plus DIGI+ VRM (Digital Power design) for superior power efficiency, greater performance, improved energy management and rock solid stability. The all new ASUS F1A75 motherboards feature full support for AMD’s® multi-GPU CrossFireX™* or unique Dual Graphics technology. AMD’s® Dual Graphics technology allows users to further boost 3D graphics performance by adding an additional AMD Radeon™ HD 6000 series graphics card to the system. This means users can fully utilize the processing power of a discrete Radeon™ HD 6000** graphics card and the A-series integrated graphics processor to experience higher frame rates in the latest gaming titles. ASUS F1A75 motherboards designed to enhance AMD’s Latest APU Technology The ASUS F1A75 motherboard series offer unsurpassed compatibility and performance with the new AMD FM-1 socket CPUs. The F1A75-V EVO, F1A75-V PRO and F1A75-M Pro series feature Dual Intelligent Processors 2 technology, which includes DIGI+ VRM power design in addition to the TPU and EPU processors that offer enhanced performance and power management. DIGI+ VRM power delivery allows a user to precisely adjust and control power settings digitally for precise power control and flexible tuning of their system. Unlike older analog designs, DIGI+ VRM is perfectly suited for the AMD® A-& E2- series APU specification’s power demand requirements that benefit from precise power flow adjustment, enhanced power efficiency and extra DRAM power control for improved system stability. Included on the F1A75 EVO/Pro Series motherboards is the intuitive and feature laden ASUS UEFI BIOS containing features like one touch adjustments for Power Saving, Stock or performance enhancing Overclocked options. ASUS UEFI also allows a user to control and adjust a wide variety of motherboard settings through the use of a mouse-enabled interface for a superior user-friendly experience that BIOS and Hybrid-EFI solutions do not offer. AMD’s® new A-& E2- series Accelerated Processors feature AMD Radeon™ HD 6000 Series Graphics technology. This revolutionary APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) combines processing power and advanced DirectX 11 graphics in one small, energy-efficient design to enable accelerated performance and an industry-leading visual experience. Supporting Microsoft® DirectX® 11, OpenGL 4.1 and OpenCL 1.1 standards, AMD’s latest APU features incredible multimedia capabilities and a superior gaming experience compared to competing solutions. The AMD® A75 FCH natively supports the next-generation SATA 6Gb/s storage interface with RAID 0, 1, 10 support featuring enhanced scalability, faster data retrieval, and double the bandwidth of current SATA 3Gb/s systems. The AMD A75 chipset also natively supports USB 3.0 with transfer speeds up to 4.8Gbps plus full backwards compatibility with legacy USB 2.0 devices. * AMD’s® CrossFireX™ technology available on the ASUS F1A75-V EVO ** AMD’s® Dual Graphics capability only supports AMD Radeon™ HD 6400, 6500, and 6600 series cards with an A-series APU. ***Check usa.asus.com for product details and availability.
