However, through the release of new BIOS code and driver updates from AMD, the board has turned into quite the performer in several areas. This would be a win-win situation in every respect as far as I can tell. Mon Apr 16, 4:

Previous topic Next topic. I also think we need reviews that have real world tests for video playback using multiple applications and documented configurations like we already have for games. Mon Apr 16, 1: Mon Apr 16, 6: AMD seem to be making big noises about a whole platform launch with the high, mid and low-end graphics cards being announced at the same time as Barcelona and RD – due some time around the middle of May, I believe? AMD doensn’t even have their discreet DX10 cards out yet, so I think it’s much too early to start waiting for an integrated one.
I’ve since read that it should work just as well with any graphics card though, and amc HDMI does future-proof me a bit.

But it should make a difference when playing video games. Here are the links: The free and opensource driver for AMD graphics in the linux kernel supports both 3D acceleration and hardware decoders as of kernel 3.
Solvusoft: Microsoft Gold Certified Company
The chipsets production began in late with codenames RS and RSwhere both of them share similar internal chip design, targeting at the desktop market. FireWire aS-Video. Word has it that it will be more powerful than the G, which is currently more powerful than the GF It comes with a huge performance hit.
Also considering that the energy prices is headed only UP, even a little lower performance might be worth that in the long run!!

Solvusoft is recognized by Microsoft as a leading Independent Software Vendor, achieving the highest level of completence and excellence in software development. Considering that a HTPC is properly going to be on quiet a bit, I would like to se some info on the power draw, from these mobo’s. Yeah I’d assume G is a bit more power efficient, although isn’t too bad either. Going by the heatsinks, both chips draw well under 15 watts.
Sun Apr 29, 4: Also supported by the chipset are PCI slots, high definition 7. Mon Apr 30, 4: The two I’m trying to decide between are: Both chipsets in this family are fully compatible 690t/v the Windows Aero interface and are Windows Vista Premium certified.
Most OSes require patches in order to work reliably.

The AMD dual chip chipset already consumes less power at idle than the nVidia single chip chipset. There’s always something behind the corner, no need to waste thoughts on 69g0/v as it’s not coming out anytime soon. The lineup and output features comparison for chipset series motherboards are summarized below.
While our initial results will concentrate on video, media, and audio application performance from a chipset level, we will be looking in-depth at each G board in our upcoming mATX roundup that features over ten boards from four different chipset suppliers.
I agree that we need reviews that actually document power consumption SPCR seems well ahead of the curve here, but sadly they don’t often test things like CPU, MB, and add-on cards. Thu Apr 19, 2:
