MSI AMD 785GM-E65 Motherboard Preview


This looks like definitely a worthy HTPC candidate for you AMD fans out there. Still would like to see it under actual testing, but specs and numbers look decent. Thanks to our twitter friend @vinylfreak for the linkage, and remember to follow us @missingremote if you haven’t already!


PC Perspective

The backplate features the aforementioned 6 USB ports, as well as 1 PS2 keyboard/mouse port, optical SPDIF port, DB-15 (VGA), DVI, HDMI, Firewire, e-SATA, Gig-E, and 6 analog audio plugs. The HDMI port is of great interest because of the upgraded 785G, which is now HDMI 1.3 compliant and can support 8 PCM streams. HTPC buffs can stop licking their chops now.
