A7DA-S/A7DA 3.0 + AM3 + DDR3 Foxconn's AMD MB stepped into "3" era!
A7DA-S 3.0/A7DA 3.0- 'AMD Game! Ready' certificated motherboards enhance your gaming experience
Yantai, China, Apr 29th 2009 -After the successful launch of the award-winning A7DA family, FOXCONN today launched its 3.0 version-A7DA-S 3.0 and A7DA 3.0 (i.e. A7DA 3.0 family) motherboards. The new A7DA 3.0 family also utilizes the AMD 790GX chipset and SB750 Southbridge but upgrades their socket from AM2+ to AM3. Thanks to the new memory control technology of the AM3 Processor, DDR3 technology is completely actualized on AMD platform. Features also include Performance Cache, Hybrid Graphics, CrossFire X support, etc.
"AMD Game! certificated and Foxconn performance engineering ensure a truly sensational gaming experience, while the versatile connectivity enables the flexibility of building digital entertainment centers." said the A7DA 3.0 product manager.
DDR3 Memory support ensures the better computing performance
3>2, "more" equals "faster"! Thanks to the integrated memory controller on the processor, lower latency and higher bandwidth is supported right through to the processor cores, removing the HT bottleneck which could limit memory performance. A7DA-S 3.0 and A7DA 3.0 support up to the latest dual channel DDR3 1333, with a total of 8GB installed support across 4 DIMM sockets.
Utilizing a brand new AMD technology called Performance Cache, the A7DA-S 3.0 and A7DA 3.0 offer even better graphics performance. With 128MB Performance Cache integrated on the motherboard, users can experience an additional 3D graphics performance boost of up to 28%.
Hybrid Graphics technology enables a perfect graphics performance
The A7DA 3.0 motherboard family provides the best-performing Hybrid Graphics solution yet, with improved performance scaling when running the motherboard graphics together with an installed Radeon™ graphics card.
CrossFire X™ for great gameplay
Even without utilizing Hybrid Graphics, users can experience phenomenal gaming performance by installing two Radeon™ graphics cards in CrossFire X™ mode. Both the A7DA-S 3.0 and A7DA 3.0 motherboards feature 2* PCIe2.0 x16 slots which can run simultaneously at 2* x8 bandwidth enabling two graphics cards to work together, dramatically improving frame rates in all your favorite games.
GSM green technology improves the energy efficiency
The A7DA 3.0 family introduces Foxconn unique Green technology- GSM ( Green System Mode). It enhances the total power-savings of the system through a range of proprietary hardware design changes and BIOS configuration adjustments. Together, these further reduce the total power consumption of the system without adversely affecting performance.
Abundant video interface enhances the PC connectivity
High-definition video content can be output to a HD ready display via the HDMI or DVI-D ports located on the rear panel.
The end result is a motherboard which can truly support HD video playback without need for the installation of an expensive discrete graphics card.
With multi-display support, you can utilize 2 monitors for increased multi-tasking work efficiency by not wasting time alt-tabbing between programs, and instantly double your desktop space with room to display 2 different applications in full screen mode.
Improved Phenom™ II over clocking performance
With the SB750 Southbridge included on the A7DA 3.0 motherboards, FOXCONN have enabled AMD OverDrive™ technology. Shift your system performance into the next gear with Advanced Clock Calibration (ACC) that allows you to get the highest over clocking out of your AMD Phenom™ II CPUs.
Solid reliability and performance
FOXCONN have used a 100% Solid Capacitor and Ferrite Choke design, to improve reliability and overall system stability. Solid capacitors typically last around 6 times longer than their electrolytic counterparts.
Ferrite Choke design improves power delivery to the motherboard. By using an iron-oxide core, the Ferrite Choke design can hold energy at a higher frequency than traditional iron cores, resulting in less power loss, and more stability and performance capability for your system, especially when under heavy loading.
Also included on all A7DA 3.0 motherboards are FOXCONN's proprietary FoxOne™ Premium solution, which enables easy over clocking, fan control and system monitoring from a dedicated Windows application - saving users from navigating complex BIOS options.
