2nd Tier manufacturer SuPOX scores another first with it's AMD 790GX+SB750 mainboard for the Phenom CPUs. Paired with Q-cool heatpipe design and o/c features, this board is going to outshine most of it's competitors with it's commited team of BIOS engineers experience in o/c bios.

This mainboard supports the Socket-AM2/AM2+ (940 pin) based AMD Athlon-AM2 2GTs/5.2GTs 16X16 Hyper Transport processors, Support 5.2GTs 16X16 wide Hyper Transport HT3.0 bus and support VMM (Virtualization-Machine-Monitoring). It supports upport 1.8v DDR2-667/800/1066 DIMMs with dual channel architecture on in single-sided or double-sided, unbuffered, non-ECC DIMMs with 256/512Mb/1Gb technologies. A total of 16 GB system memory is supported.

As it uses the 790GX north bridge, it comes with Radeon HD 3330 IGP. This integrated ATi RAdeon HD 3300 DirectX 10 with Shader Model 4.0 graphic processor support Windows Vista Aero display architecture.

It has a maximum DAC frequency of 400 MHz Resolution up to 2560x1600 (Under condition), refresh rate up to 85MHz. It also supports multiple Display configuration: D-SUB+ DVI-D+HDMI on rear panel , Frame buffer option from 32MB to 256MB. There is also support UVD architecture for H.264、VC1、MPEG2
Incorporate ATiís innovative AVIVO HD display architecture
