ASUS F1A75-V Pro (AMD A75) Llano Motherboard Preview

ASUS F1A75-V Pro - The Board Continued


Getting into the top half of the board, we've of course got our four DIMM slots which support up to 64GB of DDR3 memory with speeds ranging from 1066MHz DDR to 1866MHz DDR. Below that we've got our standard 24-Pin ATX power connector.




A few other stand out features around here include the USB 3.0 header to the left of the RAM slots and our MemOK, EPU and TPU button and switches located next to a fan header which sits next to our main 24-Pin power connector. These switches can be used to enable and disable certain features; they can pretty much be done in the BIOS, but if you don't want to venture there, then this is an easy option.






Getting around to the CPU area, you can see our main 8-Pin CPU power connector and of course the socket itself. You can also see that the A75 based board uses the new cooling bracket which AMD says helps provide better airflow and in between that we've of course got our FM1 socket.




Looking at the I/O side of things, we've got a PS/2 combo port on the left and below that two USB 3.0 ports in blue. Just skipping a few connectors for a second, we can see another two USB 3.0 ports in blue a little further up. One pair of these is controlled natively via the AMD A75 chip, while the other pair is running off the ASMedia controller.


Moving back over, we've got an optical-out port and four video connections in the form of HDMI, DisplayPort, VGA and DVI-D. As for the VGA power behind them, well, that depends on the APU you use. It's not something we can really get into at the moment because of the NDA attached to the APU side of things.


Moving on, we've got those other two USB 3.0 ports we mentioned; above that an eSATA port controlled via the ASMedia controller, two USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit networking via the Realtek RTL8111E chip and six audio jacks that run via the Realtek ALC892 codec.
