The gang over at Bit-tech have landed hands on the first AMD 880G chipset motherboard and spent some time fussing about with it. According to the publication, the board uses a SB850 Southbridge with native eSATA 6Gbps and RAID 5.

The chipset has a northbridge based on the RV620 core IGP. Graphics on the board are Radeon HD 4250 supporting DirectX 10.1 with 40 shaders and support for Sideport DDR3 memory. The board supports Hybrid graphics but lacks any new Crossfire support.

 

AMD is reportedly saving fancy CrossFire support for the higher end 890GX aimed at gamers. Other features of the 880G board include PCIe 2.0, 1x, 4x, and 16x PCI-e slots, and all this stuff is in a small microATX form factor.
