At $129.99 US the ASUS F1A75-V Pro just seems like it's priced wrong and should instead carry with it a higher price tag. It doesn't, though, and this pretty much helps sum up the Llano platform on a whole. Combined with a A8-3850 for $139.99 US, the value of a Llano based system is extremely apparent.
While Llano and the A75 chipset is indeed a cheap platform and probably cheaper than what we're used to looking at, there's some serious performance on offer. While it might not be extremely obvious in some areas, when you start to look at the results here today along with the results we saw in our launch coverage of the platform you can see that for just over $250 US you're getting a great combination.
At the moment there are not loads of boards with Newegg listing only nine. The ASUS offering is one of the more expensive at $129.99 US, but this is a really good board. It follows that typical ASUS quality that we have grown to love. We've got a UEFI BIOS and other ASUS exclusive software that can be installed once in Windows.
Memory overclocking on the board is great and it seems to be better than any other AMD board at the moment because of the quality of the A8-3850 APU. If you're interested in jumping on the Llano bandwagon and want to get yourself a quality motherboard, this is a great option.
It will be interesting to see what else ASUS do with the chipset as time goes on. I'd love to see them bring the ROG name to the Llano platform, because with strong overclocking potential on both the APU and RAM combined with the awesome price point, this is a really nice area for companies that will indeed become a key focus to them over the coming months and years.
