AMD RX780 mobo by ECS pictured

RX780M-A ready to roll

We also made time to visit our friends at ECS today who showed us their upcoming AMD motherboard based on the RX780 chipset - a cheaper and cut down version of the RD790 with a single PEG slot running at x16 full speed.


The RX780M-A is expected to launch after the first bunch of RD790 boards sometime mid October with a street price of around $100 - $110 USD. Pretty good for a brand new motherboard with Socket AM2+ supporting AMD's upcoming bunch of processors.


One thing we quickly noticed was that ECS finally decided to ditch the FDD (floppy) connector on this board and depending on how you look it could be either good or bad.


Here are some photos for your viewing pleasure! Take note that while the board is almost finished, the capacitors around the CPI area will be changed to 100% Japanese solid types and the Southbridge heatsink color will be changed to match the other cooler.






Not too shabby at all for the price!
