Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 Motherboard

AMD has just released their Trinity APU's. For those not familiar with an "APU", it is a processor that has an on-die graphics processing unit. AMD developed the world's first APU just over a year ago and they call it "Fusion" technology. AMD's first Fusion APU was codenamed Zecate and featured x86 technology with a dual core processor coupled with the first on die GPU. Zacate went over well in the budget notebook market with prices as low as $299. The kicker was above average graphics for a low priced lap-top. Next came Llano which shifted to a higher level. AMD used the same x86 four star cores but added an on-die 6550D graphics processing unit with even better graphics than its predecessor Zecate. Llano went over very well in the mainstream market and is a shining star for AMD. Trinity takes Fusion to the next level and incorporates AMD's new processor technology called Piledriver. This is entirely different engineering from the previous x86 four star cores. AMD put 2 x86 cores onto one module and the entire architecture changes. Piledriver spawns from AMD's Bulldozer introduced about one year ago, but it uses an entirely new instruction set. In our A10-5800K review, we saw some dramatic improvements in processing power as well as better graphics with the built-in Radeon 7660D. Gigabyte is all prepped and ready for these AMD changes and today we have their GA-F2A85X-UP4 ready to roll. The GA-F2A85X-UP4 introduces a new chipset from AMD called the A85 and it look...
