Really vital parameters of inexpensive chipsets — low cost and high reliability — should also be perfected in time-proved solutions. Dynamic range, dB A: Of course people that buy a socket AM2 motherboard knows that the CPU memory controller is capable of running under dual channel mode, but using the same color on both sockets may lead users to think that this motherboard uses single channel mode. This motherboard also has one x16 PCI Express slot, allowing you to install a real video card on it when you get tired of the performance of its on-board video. As you can see in Figure 2, this motherboard really uses RS Radeon Xpress even though its drivers recognize it as Radeon Xpress ATI definitely needs to clarify its system of chipset names and to inform its partners about it.

Please pay very close attention here. BioShock Infinite and Metro: This motherboard also has one x16 PCI Express slot, allowing you to install a real video card on it when you get tired of the performance of its on-board video.

The company obviously intends to stick to it for all inexpensive motherboards Documentation: As you can see in Figure 2, this motherboard really uses RS Radeon Xpress even though its drivers recognize it as Radeon Xpress ATI definitely needs to clarify its system of chipset names and to inform its partners about it. Noise level, dB A: Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: This motherboard still accepts pin ATX power supplies.

It will probably be cheaper. On the bad side, this south bridge provides only one ATA port, against two on the standard south bridge used on Radeon Xpress SB Latches in memory slots do not conflict with a video card if you install any, of course ; all few on-board connectors and jumpers to clear CMOS and protect BIOS from flashing are easily accessible, when the motherboard is installed into a PC case.
