Llano Mini-ITX motherboard face off
Having seen what Llano can do you may be wondering what the perfect motherboard would be for your SFF system. Looks like TECH REPORT is helping us out today with their shootout between two mini-ITX boards from ASUS and ZOTAC.
AMD’s latest mainstream desktop platform boasts arguably the most potent two-chip combo in the industry. At the head, you’ve got an A-series APU powered by the latest Llano silicon, which offers four reasonably fast CPU cores backed by a DirectX 11-class Radeon that puts competing integrated graphics solutions to shame. Baby’s got back, too. The tail end features a Hudson-based platform hub that’s loaded with 6Gbps Serial ATA and USB 3.0 connectivity. No other tag team offers such a cutting-edge array of baked-in goodness, making this Lynx platform perfect for the next wave of small-form-factor systems.
