With the leading designer and integrator of innovative, tailored technology solutions, AMD has been a pioneer since 1995. It launched its first independently-designed, socket – compatible X86 microprocessor, introduced the first X86-64bit processor with seamless migration path in 2003 worldwide and first demonstrated native Dual and Quad-core X86 Server Processors. And now, it continues bringing cutting-edge technologies to Graphics and Memory industries. AMD Motherboard Chipsets (990FX, 990X, 970, A88X, A78, A58 & 760G) for Desktops are specifically designed to unlock and maximize the performance of its top notch microprocessors, such as: AMD FX Processors, A-Series APU, Phenom II Processors, Athlon II Processors and entry-level Sempron Processors, in different socket designs (939/AM3+/FM1/FM2 & FM2+). By combining the AMD Radeon Graphics Cards with Eyefinity and CrossFire multi-GPU technologies, you will get immersed in gaming, productivity and entertainment on up to six displays simultaneously.
Understanding Motherboard Specifications
Motherboard (alternatively known as mainboard, system board or logic board), the ‘mother’ of all components, is the main printed circuit board found in personal computers, workstations and other computing system. Its embedded chipset holds a key function to connect many of the crucial pc components of the system, such as CPU, Memory, Hard Drive, Graphics Card and other I/O cards. And also, it provides the connectivity for other external peripherals thru I/O connectors, like keyboard and mouse. Each chipset has its own unique design determining system performance, upgradability and connectivity. Form factor is another crucial element to determine for expandability. It’s important to acknowledge AMD chipsets designed for housing only AMD microprocessors (Please check the motherboard specifications for CPU Socket compatibility).
